In a recent red carpet interview with MTV, actor Aaron Eckhart made some comments that were provocative enough to get the geek blogosphere riled up. What did he say? He implied a remote possibility that his character in The Dark Knight, Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, may still be alive! Until now, Eckhart had been adamant in interviews that Two-Face was indeed dead...case closed. Well, in this interview, he makes the following remarks:
“I think Harvey — if he’s not dead — is in a serious coma,” stated Eckhart, “and I’m not sure he’s coming out. They might pull the plug on him.”
While it may seem like conjecture that a message implying that Two-Face is coming back, as well as over-analyzing what at best, was a loose anecdote, it is a far cry from Eckhart's past comments that were clear and unambiguous in his insistence that Two-Face has bitten the dust. That is not to say that Aaron had some super-secret meeting with TDK director, Christopher Nolan where they hammered out an appearance in part three. However, I think it is reflective of a change in Eckhart's view of a possible return due to the film's enormous critical and financial success. When it comes to films, you should never say never.
