"Bat" Bits: Two Face AND The Riddler?

by | July 9, 2007 | Comments

You know how superhero sequels often try to get a lot more villains into the mix? Well, recent word indicates that we’ll be seeing the arrival of several colorful newcomers in "The Dark Knight."

Remember when we told you that Anthony Michael Hall was hired to play a role in the "Batman Begins" sequel? Well, one source indicates that he’ll be playing a very well-known character — while a second source states right out: Hall is playing Edward Nygma. Fans of the Batman comic book, TV series, or (ugh) "Batman Forever" will remember that Edward Nygma is the alter ego of … The Riddler.

Also, early reports indicated that Aaron Eckhart would be playing District Attorney Harvey Dent, but that his Two-Face side wouldn’t show up until future sequels. Or maybe he will, says Film Ick. Apparently the Two-Face make-up will be required on the "Dark Knight" set.

Lastly, fans of Maggie Gyllenhaal will be pleased to learn that her input has been very welcome where the Rachel Dawes character is concerned. Apparently she expected to be just another small cog in a very big machine, but after replacing Katie Holmes as Bat’s love interest, she’s been very "hands-on" with the character. (Plus she’s a better actress.)

"The Dark Knight" hits theaters next summer … as if you didn’t know that already.
