Noooo!!!! We were really looking forward to seeing Aaron Eckhart in this role again.
Looks like Harvey Dent/Two-Face definitely won't be returning in The Dark Knight Rises…and this comes from director Christopher Nolan himself.
Here's what Aaron Eckhart had to say about his disappointing conversation with Nolan:
"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.' "
More from Eckhart:
"We found ourselves alone on the beach together on a stormy day and he delivered the news to me. And I was heartbroken. I was heartbroken. But Chris has his reasons and my life must go on."
"Honestly, it was Heath's movie to go on. We had a great movie. I'm so honored to be a part of that movie. I know Chris has got something in store that is going to blow everybody away."
We're glad to hear you're taking it so well, Aaron! We'll def miss you in The Dark Knight Rises, but at least we've got your intense performances in Rabbit Hole and Battle: Los Angeles to look forward to!
Will U miss Harvey Dent in The Dark Knight Rises?
