Two-Face or not?

07.15.2007
We know for certain that Gotham City DA Harvey Dent is on the character roster for THE DARK KNIGHT, but there's been plenty of online murmur and speculation whether his uglier cantankerous side would also appear, or if this film just laid the groundwork for potential future villainy in the film franchise.

Sounds like the Joker won't be the only Bat-nemesis in the flick after all. Heroic-jawed actor Aaron Eckhart, who has been cagey on the topic of twin visages, essentially admitted to MTV he would in fact be a man of two faces in the movie: "I play Harvet Dent. Harvey Two-Face. They are both in the movie."

Seems pretty clear that the green-haired grin machine won't be all Batman has to deal with this time. We've also heard rumblings that Edward Nygma, aka The Riddler, would be showing up as a planted seed for down the line, and that Bats will also be grappling with Gotham's gang element.
Extra Tidbit: Eckhart has previously worked with numerous other actors who portrayed comic book characters, including the Punisher, J. Jonah Jameson, Daredevil, Magneto, and a different Batman.

I doubt Harvey Dent will be become the scarred Two-Face until the end of the movie. As for the Scarecrow and Riddler, well, no one is sure that the Riddler is even in it, and I'm thinking that the Joker might have something to do with Scarecrow coming back.

I don't think that the Riddler is lame. I think if they use him in a way similar to Mr Zsasz is the 1st movie, he'll be great. Use him as an informant. It'd be cool if he was just a gloryfied cameo.

They shouldn't reveal Two-Face too soon in the film and I think they won't. Enough time has to be set in order to know Harvey Dent first.

the two-face reveal will be...

at the end. That's all there is to it. And I still adhere to my earlier statement that Edward Nigma will not be so much a villain as more of a rival to Batman and his detective skills, because as a villain, The Riddler is lame. He's not crazy, he doesn't have dual personalities, he basically is just a corny bad guy who uses riddles as clues. He's not a loon or a world-beater. He's a goof and should be treated as such.

right...

Angelius hit the nail on the head. Dent had Two-Face as an alternate personality LONG before he was physically scarred.

And I'm pretty sure the Scarecrow just makes a cameo whilst he's still going nutty in Arkham.

Two-Face was Two-Face before the scaring. So it IS likely to have him BOTH in the film. He's always had that double side lurking beneath the surface. But Joker, Scarecrow, (Maybe) Ridler and (Maybe) Two-Face is a little too many, isn't it? I loved the first one because It had it's main villain, it's psycho side villain and enough room to breathe for Bruce and Bats to develop their characterizations more. I'm not saying this will turn bad here, but just that it could be a little bad if done the

So we got Two-Face, Joker, possibly the Riddler, and most likely Scarecrow due to the new photos of him on set. I gotta say, I am liking the direction this is going.

I'm excited about getting to see Two Face, and I agree Burgerking, it's very likely we will only see him at the end. I would expect the movie to be Joker-centric.

The Riddler

I know we are talking about Two-Face here, but with everyone talking about how they should do something similar with Two-Face showing up later in the film like the joker playing card, but wouldn't it be cool to have a riddle at the end. It would be similar to the playing car with Gordan handing over a riddle to Batman. Don't know could be lame.

edit

That's cool news. I hope he's better than Tommy Lee Jones, which shouldn't be too hard since he sucked as Two Face.

Also that's a fucked up Photoshop.

Well,

I personally still think Two Face shows up at the end, like the card in Begins. I don't think they're gonna give him two big villains right away. I mean, I guess they might, but they need to give Harvey some solid development, though. Keep him around for a while so they trust each other and are good friends - -and then he turns. You know?

So, I assume we'll see Two Face at the end -- and he'll be the villain in all his glory in #3.

trust nolan

I'm thinking that Two face will just show up late in the movie to set up for the next - similar to how the jokers calling card appeared in Begins, but I guess we'll actually see Two Face at the end of this one (then its not as fun to wait for the next one!) I don't think that they will have him a full fledged villian in this one. Also, I think the Riddler may just be the normal side of him, similar to Curt Conners in Spiderman who was there, but never became the Lizard.

Hmmm

I'm sure Nolan knows what he's doing... I just really hope this doesn't go down the over-egged Spidey 3 route :S I mean The Long Halloween has Joker and Two Face in it, sure, but it's really mainly a Two-Face story with a bit of Joker chucked in. The Dark Knight doesn't seem to be that, being primarily Joker. So if they're doing Joker AND Two-Face origins, that's a hell of a lot of ground to cover in one movie.
