Harvey 'Toy-Face' Dent

7 years agoby:
Itís come down to this, hasnít it. After four years at one of Canadaís top universities, here I am at 1 a.m. writing a news story about a blurry picture of an action figure. You should be proud, professor Ponech. Your lectures and insights have served me well. The picture below seems to be our first look at Aaron Eckhart has Harvey Dent/Two-Face in this summerís mildly anticipated THE DARK KNIGHT. It looks like theyíve gone with the same purple motif for the scarred skin used on Tommy Lee Jonesí Two-Face incarnation in BATMAN FOREVER. The filmmakers also confirmed that Dentís deformity will be a combination of CG effects and makeup, something Iím having trouble envisioning. So take a look at the blurry photo of a toy BELOW, and scrutinize it, analyze it, worship it, make love to it, and ignore everything else in life, because itís THE DARK KNIGHT, ok?

Extra Tidbit: When I was reading over this story, as any self-respecting writer should always do, I noticed that I misspelled Aaron Eckhart as Aaron Eckhard. Amazing male pornstar name, right?

"..mildly anticipated.."

hahaha ben you crack me up. man..the joker and two-face. i do agree though that two-face should be somewhere towards the end. kinda like how in Begins, scarecrow was just the appetizer, while ra's was the main bad ass.

rise it two fold, and you have Joker as an appetizer, with two-face the main course.

Don't Worry

They won't be overweighing the film with villains. The plan from the beginning was that Harvey would be a supporting protagonist throughout the film, and would be scarred in the end, setting up the premise for a 3rd film.

2Face

This version of Two Face is much more realistic than the one in Batman Forever, Aaron's scar is uneven to where the Two Face scar from Batman Forever was down right the middle, I'm diggi'n this new version and hope to see a better image of it soon.

Fury159: Don't forget that Batman Begins also had multiple villains, and Superman Returns had one. It's clear which one was better. :)

I bet...

That Two-Face will make his appearance at the end of the film. Joker is going to cause some insane amount chaos which will lead to his inevitable capture where he scars Harvey Dent for life in the process.

Or maybe I'm completely wrong and the Joker will just hunt down Dent at some point in the film and tell him to get his sh!t in order and leave him the ef alone, all the while throwing some acid on his face for good measure.

Either way, I have 100% complete faith in Nolan that he won't

Multiple Villains

From what I hear, that's how they're going to do it. Or at least Harvey Dent is going to be a good guy for most of the film. Anyways, I think we know there's no way they can "pull a Venom" on the Joker, and that's the important thing. Still, Batman Begins had Scarecrow and Ra's Al-Ghul, and that seemed to work out well.

Now don't get me wrong, I have complete faith in Christopher Nolan and I'm not trying to start any arguments, but is it slightly discouraging to anyone else that here's yet again another comic book movie with multiple major villains? Hasn't Spiderman 3 or the previous Batman films been warning enough? I'm thinking this would only really work if TwoFace is introduced right at the end, moving into the third movie....thoughts?

Oh my God, he's slightly unattractive on one side! XD

I am so excited for this performance. The massive crush on Eckhart might have something to do with it.

I like what I see, but beyond the hand and the wardrobe there isn't much of a revelation here. There's not much room for changes with a character like Two Face

Anyone notice how one half of his suit is neat and tidy, and the other half is a bit more worn out and burnt. It's a lot more subtle and less over-the-top than his previous incarnations. Interesting.

ptek

the cgi is probably for the eyes and mouth. If you look closely, the teeth are showing..i think.

Plus, Nolan rarely uses CGI unless it's necessary.

Why's it always gotta be the CG with these people? I feel like I'm gonna have a hard time being convinced of Two-Face's deformity when I see jiggling pixels where badass gore makeup should be.

Well the most interesting thing I take from this is his hand. Has this more extensive burning been present on previous incarnations? Pretty cool Chris Nolan et. all!

Call me crazy, but what kind of photographer would shoot an action figure where the only thing that's in focus is the printer paper it's standing on? Just food for thought.

Can't wait

Even though this is basically what I expected for Two-Face, I still dig it from what I can see. If it was even possible, I'm more excited for TDK now.

If you're having trouble envisioning what a combination of CG effects and makeup would be like, watch the special features on The Mummy DVD.
