Aaron Eckhart On Possibly Reprising His Role As Two Face In The Dark Knight Rises

Aaron Eckhart On Possibly Reprising His Role As Two Face In <em>The Dark Knight Rises</em>

Its a possibility, but the actor is doubtful he will be back in Chris Nolan's threequel..

This isn't exactly news. We have heard from Eckhart before on whether he might return or not. But since Nolan revealed the title for his third Batman movie, and said that we would be seeing some old faces, fresh rumors have been swirling that one of those old faces might be scarred down one side. Yes, Nolan has said he was dead, Eckhart has said he was dead, we saw his funeral, he was dead. But, that being said, I, and many others, don't believe things were left without the possibility of his return if Nolan so wished.

Speaking to ShowbizSpy, Eckhart was asked if he knew anything about Harvey Dent's possible resurrection..

“I’m not privy to these things, I just feel like with the death of Heath Ledger, I feel like maybe starting over might be a better thing.

“I just don’t have any idea. I really don’t know and if Chris gives me a call, I’ll come but I don’t anticipate a call.”

So, that seems to put the kabosh on the latest Two Face return rumor. If Nolan was planning anything he would surely have informed Eckhart by now. As much as I love TDK, I think the decision to kill off Two Face so quickly was a big mistake. Made even bigger by the fact that Ledger can't reprise his part as The Joker as was planned. Anyway, lets see what Nolan has up his sleeve. With all the rumors flying at the moment I hope/expect we get some solid info soon.

I really don't want Two-Face to come back in the third movie. Nice article! But not to be rude, these "Two-Face might come back" news are kinda getting old to me. Every time I look up online for new info on the third movie, this whole thing is brought up again. To me it's nothing new...
Shaman - 11/3/2010, 11:42 AM
Meh. At this point i actually DO hope he comes back. Killer Croc, Gordon cheating, Sarah Essen, Julie Madison & Vera Farmiga getting any part in this isn't really blowing my skirt up at all.
hovis5818 - 11/3/2010, 11:44 AM
If they bring Two-Face back it will only be because they can't bring back The Joker, they shouldn't settle for second best. New villains for TDKR
Shaman - 11/3/2010, 11:45 AM
Tea- Touché ;)

Let's just hope they don't go all money crazy on us by following TDK's lead. They should opt for Batman Begins's blueprint instead, IMHO.
juggy4711 - 11/3/2010, 11:48 AM
I have never considered this even a remote possibility. TDKR will be entertaining I have no doubt. Will it be able to top or equal TDK. Probably not.

It shold rather read "Aaron Eckhart On The Extremely Unlikely Possibility Reprising His Role As Two Face In The Dark Knight Rises."

Black Mask needs to be featured!

RorMachine - 11/3/2010, 11:56 AM
Tea, nah its a new interview..he's not saying anything new though granted! Slow news day, bare with me!
JoshWilding - 11/3/2010, 12:00 PM
I doubt we'll see him back as Two-Face. I think Nolan told the story he wanted to tell for the character in The Dark Knight and a return would be pointless IMO even though he was one of the best parts of that movie!

tea/ROR: I think it feels familiar because, like Andrew Garfield, people keep asking him the same questions and he keeps giving the same answers! Seeing double aint always bad though, lol...

LOL ROFL @ bmx suit
seriously tho batman in TDK was a bmx rider with throat cancer wearing a cowl.
if it was not for the strong plot,and great acting from heath ledger the movie will be a fail
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 12:03 PM
i dont need bangbros or pornhub anymore. now all i have to do is go to comicbookmovie.com and look at 'joshw'and tea's post and im all good XD
JaySchluffy - 11/3/2010, 12:07 PM
Lord I feel sorry for this guy, every time he has an interview someone goes ARE YOU COMING BACK AS TWO FACE!?
Shaman - 11/3/2010, 12:08 PM
Tea- You're on a roll, my good man! God his suit was aweful in TDK. "You wanna be able to turn your head?" ...shut the [frick] up and put the damn BB suit on, it's a [frick]ing movie for crying out loud!!!
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 12:08 PM
just like interviewing the texas rangers. 'you mean you guys still have not won a world series?'
DukeAcureds - 11/3/2010, 12:08 PM
@Fugzly -heheh, you're so right. On both counts.
I've got a pretty good idea who the TDKRises villians are. It won't be two-face again. We've already had him twice, fittingly enough.
IonGL2814 - 11/3/2010, 12:14 PM
I'm just going to be honest... I don't understand why this is considered news still. How many times has Chris Nolan or Aaron Eckhart been interviewed about this same subject and how many times have they both said he's not coming back he's dead. I'm going to say every time. Can't we just take the hint and go with he's dead and not post this as news anymore.
Shaman - 11/3/2010, 12:14 PM
Hey Nolan, Charlize Theron = GOOD. Vera Farmiga(Maggly Gyllenugly's twin) = BAD. Just cause you might not be into women in general doesn't mean the rest of the world feels the same.

Tea- Yeah. And look how well it helped him against those said dogs. What a ninja master he was. Mace... no. Sedatives... nope. Sonar wave emitter... nada. The [frick] you good for??? Now every two bit criminal will have Rots with em. Didn't they actually show up on Fox's screens with Joker? Ah well, live and learn i guess.
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 12:15 PM
I think in theory and in literature it is always to end a story by going back to the beginning.
nolans batman story is about drugs/and gangsters taking over a city and it started with ra's al ghul.
I think it will genius of nolan to end it with al Ghul but not with ra's since he is dead but instead with talia....just saying
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 12:17 PM
LMAO @ shaman
marvel72 - 11/3/2010, 12:19 PM
give us someone new,we've seen two face twice now in the movies.

give us charactors i actually give a shit about.

for example.

1.hush & clayface
2.black mask & deadshot
3.bane & killer croc
Shaman - 11/3/2010, 12:24 PM
deadpool72- A big AMEN to your comment, just not your choices ;P

Tea- POW! Right on the lips! :)
RorMachine - 11/3/2010, 12:27 PM
Iogl, but here he isn't saying "he's dead" is he? He's responding to the same questions yes, but its been asked since fresh rumors have sprung up. Anyway, I agree that its not really news, like I said, slow day. I figured it would at least get conversation going anyway.

Shaman, I know we differ pretty vastly at times on our ladies, but you really don't think Farmiga is even a little bit sexy?
Frogman - 11/3/2010, 12:27 PM
I say give us whoever the hell they want to, if its new characters but a shit story then massive fail, if they could make a better story with characters that have already been portrayed in the movies then do it! As long as the story is good i couldn't give a damn who they use.
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 12:28 PM
im assuming sha-'man' is a man, and im assuming teabag is a man also by his insane love for women.
im also assuming that "POW! Right on the lips" is referring to a kiss. which makes this extremely odd -___-
AreTudaEDub - 11/3/2010, 12:31 PM
It's kind of surprising that everyone is worrying about two-face and not one the batcave.
Bandrews1 - 11/3/2010, 12:31 PM
I really wanna know what villain he's gonna go with.
AlReg - 11/3/2010, 12:31 PM
Wasn't much of a rumor in the first place he said if Nolan wanted him then he would participate in the movie then a bunch of sites posted it as "Will Aaron Eckhart be in Batman 3?" hopefully he puts some stuff to bed.
IonGL2814 - 11/3/2010, 12:33 PM
No I understand Ror it has nothing to do with you or the story, I'm just sick of these rumors popping up in general. Nolan strikes me as the kind of director/writer who goes on the philosophy, if I kill them they're dead ya know... it's just annoying, but by no means was I trying to bash you, I always enjoy your articles
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 12:34 PM
im worrying about:
1. batman dying from throat cancer.
2. bruce wayne not having a flipping mansion
3. batman not having a car/or a flipping cave
4. multi millionaires not being able to bag a hot girl
Ryden - 11/3/2010, 12:34 PM
In all fairness, has Nolan ever actually said "Two-Face..is dead" he's always just said Harvey Dent is. And remember, Harvey has two personas. Maybe the last scene in TDK was when Harvey died and Two Face was born?

It's a long shot, but still a possiblility.
DukeAcureds - 11/3/2010, 12:39 PM
Okay, wrap your lips around this: Anarchy is the main villian, Nocturna (that's right Nocturna, anyone remember her?) is possibly going to be the female villian/love interest ("possibly" meaning it could still be HarleyQuinn, to please the fans) and I don't know about the third villian, but he'll be a guy. But he won't be Two-Face. I think the theme is Batman's inspiration on vigilantes, so my guess for the third villian would be Red Hood or Hush or someone like that.
You heard it here first.
Shaman - 11/3/2010, 12:54 PM
Duke- I'd definitely go see that!!! Now you got me all excited again, YEAY :))

Fugzly- Actually, it was in response to Tea's "vag-punch" comparison to Maggly's face.

Ror- Actually, here's a question for you. Did you find Maggly Gyllenugly sexy at all in TDK? Casue if you look at Vera's pic on the feature article section thingy on main, she looks exactly like Maggly. And no, i don't find her attractive one bit. But in regards to "attractive" MILFs, Lisa Rhina, Diane Lane, Sharon Stone, Lucy Lawless, Carla Gugino, Michelle Pfeifer, Heather Locklear, Dina Lohan even Miranda Richardson i'd take over Vera. I'd even take today's Loni Anderson before Vera. Vera's just not my cup of tea ;)
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 12:57 PM
@shaman: yeah i know i just took the small opportunity i had to be an ass XD
DukeAcureds - 11/3/2010, 1:00 PM
@Shammy -Good MILF taste. MILFs are good. Vera is not a MILF at all. She could be 20 years old and she'd still be ugly
TheJester187 - 11/3/2010, 1:32 PM
There's no time for two face I think bane catwoman and black mask will be the villains the black mask could hire bane for an assasination on batman and catwoman and batman juss whoop ass lol!!! Cmon Nolan that would be epic!!!
theartofoneness - 11/3/2010, 1:41 PM
I think he should be in the third one. When he died in the last one it looked like he fell of a small ladder and everyone considered him dead. i didnt understand it really. i thought it was obvious he didnt die, villains dont die that easy. So he should be back with a vengeance.
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 1:43 PM
BANE IS NO ONES B**CH!!!!! . <---- notice the period after the exclamation marks of my anger caused by stupid comments
LEEE777 - 11/3/2010, 1:49 PM
I like him... he's cool and NOLAN should never of killed the character off lol!

So IF it happens cool!

But........... DEADSHOT & BLACK MASK all the way!!!
weaponxcustoms - 11/3/2010, 2:05 PM
bring him back!!!! and itd be nice if one post on here didnt get spammed with tits, I cant even let my kid look at the news on this site anymore
SuperSpiderMan5778 - 11/3/2010, 2:23 PM
maybe Harvey Dent's dead and Two-Face has been fully born hmmmmm???
Fugzly - 11/3/2010, 2:24 PM
