Looking at the cartoons made, he resembles the two face character, probably might not be as ecentric as tommy lee jones, but he will bring darkness to the character.

Another quality actor on board - superb choice. I had read (albeit in The Sun) that Jude Law had the role, I have been crying ever since. Now I haved wiped away that final tear and give a resounding woohoo !!

Mature choice

Nolan
Bale
Ledger
Eckhart
Freeman
Oldman
Caine

and maybe Maggie Gyllenhaal as Katie Homes' replacement

these are mature people with mature ideas about where to take Batman, this is going to be good. epic even.

Does this mean it's pretty much based on The Long Halloween?

I'd hope so, as its a fucking awesome graphic novel.

The only guy on the list for the job has gotten it. Absolutely quality choice by Nolan, fast becoming my favourite director. The guy's a pro and surrounds himself with pros. Eckhart IS Dent

a very good and underrated actor. my only issue is that Harvey Dent was not attacked by the Joker - but Batman Begins was so good, I'm willing to overlook this matter.

great choice, i'm sure about this but still undure of joker casting! and whoever's bitching about the joker not scarring dent. I don't think anyuone in particulaly special did, it was just sum crook! the only thing im worried about now is casting maggie gylenhall as katie holme's charcater! i've no problem with the actress but make her a new charcater, the only time you can have the same charcater with a different actor is dr who and james bond!

It's been public knowledge for a while that in the sequel they're not having the Joker scar Dent but Dent getting scarred at his trial during an attempt to kill the Joker himself. Kinda like what happened in The Long Halloween but a bit different. By the way, great casting-still not sure on Ledger though....

Aaron Eckhart's a a very versatile and talented actor, so I'm sure he'll do a great job.

Given the excellent quality and (more important to the studios) huge profits of Begins it was inevitable we'd see another two on the scene pretty quickly. I think Christian Bale fitted the role in the first film perfectly, as did all the other actors for that matter, and so far they seem to be making the right choices for this one too. Now, I never read the comics so I only have Batman Forever (shiver) to go on but Eckhart seems a good choice - hopefully not as camp or stupidly defeated as the Tommy Lee Jones version - and having an initially good character turn evil in the sequel is an interesting move. Here's hoping this is as good as the first.

 As I said in the other thread the only downside to this is it diminishes his chances of playing Captain America. Other than that a resounding thumbs up.

David Goyer, who wrote the plans for the 3 movies that are to be made with Nolan stated that Dent is in the next movie attempting to bring the Joker down with Batman, and then he gets scarred at the Jokers trial (either by Ledger or someone else?) and so turns into Two Face in the third film.

Nolan clearly knows what he's at. Just give him every franchise in trouble and he will fix it

Perhaps now the healing can begin following the abomination of Tommy Lee Jones' version of Two Face.

Amen.
A cackling, 'must try and do a Nicholson' abomination by an actor who should have known better! I find it a bit embarassing watching it, he looks like he think's he's in the TV version of Batman (although Schumacher is as much to blame for that!). Bring on an 'adult' version of Two-Face.

A two Face who is an intelligent and divided individual.  One who is capable of being a challenge to Batman rather than being some second rate thug who gurns a lot and then just shoots things.  I must say a good bit of casting here.

Now all we need is for them to announce that Fairuza Balk is playing Harleen Quinzel, and all shall be well in the city of Gotham! :)

But in a PG rated Batman, aimed almost entirely at kids and playing off of Jim Carry I rather liked his Two-Face, people take that film far too seriously and there's no apologizing for that but definitely looking forward (very much) to a more adult oriented, maybe even Hannible-esque Harvey Dent.
Kudos to Chris Nolan for re-energizing the Mythos.

Totally agree. The man has a charisma vaccum. Thank You For Smoking was the most toothless, boring satire i've ever seen, and when you consider it's themes and topics, frankly it's unforgivable. I'm starting to think In The Company Of Men was just a lucky misstep in an otherwise middling carrer for Eckhart, however my faith lies with Nolan. I can't really see Heath Ledger as The Joker either, but i'm prepared to hedge my bets ( along with Eckhart's Two Face ) until the film opens and i can see for myself.
