Harvey 'Two Face' Dent has been officially buried six-feet-under and won't be coming back for "The Dark Knight" sequel. While talking about his new controversial movie "Towelhead", the man behind Dent, Aaron Eckhart, put an end to any speculation regarding the possibility of his character's return in "Batman 3".

When asked by Superhero Hype!, Eckhart firmly stated that the villain is indeed dead. "No. He is dead as a door nail," he said, adding further, "He ain't coming back baby!" In similar note, he told CHUD that director Christopher Nolan has confirmed the matter to him. "I asked Chris if there was a chance of coming back," the 40-year-old noted. "'No way,' he said. 'He's toast."

Back in midst August, Dennis O'Neil, the author of the movie novelization, has also laid down the fact on the character with half-disfigured face. He wrote that the once rising District Attorney of Gotham City and Batman's ally was "sprawled, neck twisted, the mutilated side of his face exposed, his left eye open and staring sightlessly. He was obviously dead."

Earlier this week, "Dark Knight" has made another record by becoming the second movie to break to the $500 million milestone. Up to September 2, the sequel to "Batman Begins" starring also Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and Maggie Gyllenhaal has collected as much as $505.4 million nationwide and $922.4 million worldwide.

NYC COMIC-CON NEWSLETTER: author: Dave Micah 4/18/08 NEWS OF BATMAN: SHADOW OF THE NIGHT Batman 3 Synopsis: Jervis Tetch (Mad Hatter) is a neuroscientist who pursues his theories despite genetic sanctions. He creates a synthetic organism by combining his nano technology with human stem cells. Then he gambles to reverse his autistic patient (Riddler) Edward Nigma's mental degradation and prove himself right. He is caught, fired and shunned by the scientific community, but not before discovering the key to mind control. He has the misfortune of testing a subject by the name of (Catwoman) Selina Kyle. She is reclusive secretary suffering from split personality disorder. A home body who's only companionship lies in her cats. Batman is confronted by a new foe named (Dick Grayson) Nightwing. A revenge driven vigilante who's sole declaration is to do to criminals what the Dark Knight will not. Which is kill those who commit atrocities on the people of Gotham like his family. A series of mysterious deaths are approximated within sightings of Nightwing. However, once he announces responsibility for murders Batman had Commissioner Gordon blame him for to preserve Harvey Dent's good name. Batman begins to question the validity of Nightwing's claims to being a murderous vigilante. Batman hunts down Nightwing in an effort to persuade him from becoming what he hates most. Meanwhile, Bruce Wayne is seduced by Wayne Enterprise's newest addition Selina Kyle. Selina's alter ego becomes her psyche's dominant personality due to Jervis' attempt to control her. After unforeseen side effects on Selina's neural pathways send her adrenal glands into overdrive and her conscious mind to fall victim to Tetch. Catwoman emerges with unbridled strength, agility and an overconfident sexual appetite. As Tetch uses a cognitive transmitter to impose his will. He plagues the citizens of Gotham, as Mad Hatter, with an organism which gives him reign over their consciousness. The Dark Knight is engulfed at every turn with attempts to end his life by the citizens he swore to protect. Their very eyes act as cameras and their bodies act as weapons to prevent Batman's attempts to stop him. Under the guidance of Lucius Fox, Batman infects himself with Tetch's organism to establish a telepathic link. Bruce Wayne pits himself against Mad Hatter in a battle of mind vs madness. He is greeted by a world from which he wished he had come from. Then in an instant he is confronted by a nightmarish existence from which he can not escape. While he tries to convince Selina Kyle that she is the key to stopping Mad Hatter. Lucius Fox succumbs to Tetch's control and Batman is left trapped in his own head. This leaves a psychotic Catwoman as one of the Dark Knight's only hopes of waking up to the real world again. As a blood thirsty vigilante, who blames Batman for not stopping the man responsible for his family's death, is left to choose his fate.

Have to say I'm disappointed they went the way of the older flicks instead of keeping him alive. Like I once said: keeping him alive would serve the character of Batman better and having him appear only as a cameo to show that Batman wouldn't have killed him is better than doing it the Burton way.

Well, there goes my dream of a Shakespearian-inspired battle for the mob between Two-Face and Black Mask.
