Aaron Eckhart to return to Batman for ‘The Dark Knight Rises’?

Two Face could return for sequel, despite being killed off

Batman actor Aaron Eckhart has hinted he may appear in The Dark Knight Rises, despite being killed off in the last movie.

The actor played Harvey Dent, aka supervillain Two Face in The Dark Knight, but his character met a grisly end at the climax of the film. However, promoting his current sci fi adventure Battle: Los Angeles he hinted that it might not yet be the end of the road.

Asked by CBS News to confirm he would not be appearing, he cryptically asked: “I’m not?” Pressed as to whether he could appear in a flashback or dream sequence, Eckhart simply said: “I could not possibly say.”

The Dark Knight Rises is due for release next year. Anne Hathaway has been cast as Catwoman.
