After watching Batman knock Harvey Dent off three stories to the ground below I assumed the villain Two-Face was dead. However, it seemed many people thought otherwise, especially considering the scene where Eric Roberts explained a fall from just a few stories wouldn’t kill anyone.

Two-Face wasn’t the most exciting of villains, but he had potential and considering Ledger’s return would be impossible it seemed feasible. Insert buzzkill here:

“He is dead as a door nail,” Eckhart confirms. “I asked Chris [Nolan] that question and he goes, ‘You’re dead’ before I could even get the question out of my mouth.”

“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.”

Eckhart is right. There really are a ton of other options out there and if Batman is set to be chased for his ties to Dent’s death then it wouldn’t make much sense for him to be alive. Disappointed? I’m sure Nolan will make it up to you.
