The front-runner has moved further ahead it seems. The trade papers indicate that Aaron Eckhart is in final negotiations to play Harvey Dent/Two Face in “The Dark Knight,” Warner Bros. Pictures’ sequel to “Batman Begins.”
In Batman lore, Dent is the district attorney of Gotham City and an ally of Batman. After half his face is disfigured by acid, Dent becomes the insane crime boss known as Two Face.
Director Christopher Nolan along with Christian Bale, Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Gary Oldman are also confirmed to be returning alongside new entry Heath Ledger as The Joker.
