Despite the fact that Harvey Dent -- AND Two Face -- died at the end of THE DARK KNIGHT, many folks continued thinking and hoping that the character would return in
Per the man himself --
Aaron Eckhart -- neither he or Dent will be in THE DARK KNIGHT RISES. Here's what he told MTV...
"Chris and I had a meeting, on the beach, just the two of us. I said, 'Chris, a lot of people are asking me if I'm in the next BATMAN. And Chris said, 'Yes?' I said, 'Am I?' He looked at me and he said, 'No.' We found ourselves alone on the beach together on a stormy day and he delivered the news to me and I was heartbroken. I was heartbroken. But Chris has his reasons and my life must go on."
AND...... the "word on the street" has pre-production for THE DARK KNIGHT RISES beginning in March of 2011. Filming is said to begin two months later in May.
