A while back we heard that the Harvey Dent character would be appearing in "The Dark Knight" (he’ll be played by Aaron Eckhart) but that his villainous alter ego (Two-Face) would be saved for the NEXT sequel. Looks like we might have some confirmation on that…
Well, nothing concrete, but "Batman Begins" screenwriter David Goyer recently dropped a few hints like "Two-Face? Hmm, don’t think so…," which of course leads to all sorts of fan-frantic speculation. Regarding the possibility of there being two villains in the sequel, Mr. Goyer makes a good point: "Some people raised their eyebrows when they heard there were going to be two villains in the first film … but I think that one worked out just fine." (I’d call that an understatement … and there were definitely more than two villains in "Batman Begins.")
Furthermore, it looks like Goyer (who’s got his own movie, "The Invisible," coming real soon) will be receiving only a "story by" credit when "The Dark Knight" takes to the screen again. Official screenwriting duties now belong to the director Christopher Nolan and his brother Jonathan — who recently collaborated on "The Prestige," and rather well if you ask me.
