Two-Face Won’t Appear In The Dark Knight Rises, He’s Dead

11 Comments

As it unfolds, we know more about Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight Rises” from what it isn’t than what it is. It is like a picture that is chiefly defined by negative space. We know who the villain won’t be. We know that the Joker won’t be in the movie. And now, we know for sure that Harvey Dent/Two-Face won’t appear in the film. He’s dead. Sorry to be the one to break it to you.

Even though most people assumed that Two-Face was dead, all of the evidence certainly pointed that way, that didn’t stop rumors to the contrary from spreading. Even Aaron Eckhart was unclear about the situation, so he did what anyone with Christopher Nolan’s phone number would do, he asked him. Here’s what the ridiculously handsome actor told MTV about the conversation:

“Chris and I had a meeting, on the beach, just the two of us. I said, ‘Chris, a lot of people are asking me if I’m in the next ‘Batman.’ And Chris said, ‘Yes?’ I said, ‘Am I?’ He looked at me and he said, ‘No.’”

Eckhart said he was “heartbroken” to hear the news, but was honored to be a part of “The Dark Knight”.

And yes, he also confirmed that he and Nolan did in fact meet on a beach on a stormy afternoon. You can watch him explain that one for yourselves.

    I’m dumbfounded this rumor has continued to persist. WTF?

      Me too. Same with the Joker rumor.

    I wish two-face would be in it. I think he was a great two-face and the previous movie didn’t give him enough time to show that.

    I was really hoping he wasn’t dead and that it was just “Harvey Dent” that died and that “Two-Face” would live on to menace Batman again. It would’ve worked to a point, letting Gotham belive he died in the fire while they locked him up in Arkham. But it still works with him being dead. Just one more thing for Batman to shoulder.

    if two-face really is dead after he got pushed off the ledge, then that means that batman has violated his own credo of “non-lethality”..

    wait.. does that mean that joker won by “corrupting” the “incorruptible”?

    note to self: how many quote/unquote can i fit in a single sentence before somebody decides to stone me to death?

      Nope. Was an accident. BUT he did take the blame so other criminals would think he had broken it.
