Amidst wild rumors for Dark Knight 3's casting process (think Cher as Catwoman), actor Aaron "Two Face" Eckhart gave us some bat-closure on a few of the many bat-rumors. So are we going to see the former Gotham City DA's pretty deformed mug again? Dark Knight spoilers ahead.In a press conference Eckard was doing for Towelhead, the press tried to squeeze out a denial from the actor about whether his Dark Knight character is toast in the next film. Is it possible that Two-Face survived his apparent demise in the end? Eckhart told Coming Soon that he was sorry to say Harvey Dent is DOA:
Q: Is Harvey Dent alive? Aaron Eckhart: No. He is dead as a door nail. Q: So he's not coming back? Eckhart: He ain't coming back baby! Q: I was hoping he would. Eckhart: No. I asked Chris [Nolan] that question and he goes, "You're dead" before I could even get the question out of my mouth. "Hey Chris, am I?" "You're dead!" Alright, cool. Q: That's not a problem in comic book movies. You could still come back. Eckhart: I think in contract negotiations it's a problem. Q: So you were never signed on for another film? Eckhart: No, I'm not coming back. I think unfortunately, Heath [Ledger] was supposed to go on and that didn't work out. I'm nobody. I'm a cog. I have no say over this sort of stuff. I'm sure that there's so many other characters that they could whip together. I heard Angelina Jolie was going to be Catwoman or something like that. I thought that was a great idea. I'd like to be in that one.
Nooooo Eckhart! We were so close to stopping all these crazy Dark Knight rumors and there you go again giving credence to the Jolie Catwoman yarn. Sigh, I don't think the Dark Knight 3 rumors will ever end until Nolan breaks his silence and tells the world what he's planning on doing. Until then we need to be giving more thought to my Liza Minnelli as The Penguin casting proposition. [via Coming Soon]
