Plot details for Matt Reeves' highly-anticipated sequel to The Batman are still under wraps, but several rumors relating to certain characters that could be introduced have been doing the rounds over the past few months.

DC Studios co-CEO James Gunn appeared to debunk reports that the likes of Scarecrow, Clayface, Professor Pyg, and Hush, were set to appear in the movie, but we're now hearing that Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, may have a part to play.

According to CanWeGetSomeToast, Boyd Holbrook is in talks to play the classic Batman villain in the upcoming sequel.

Holbrook has quite a bit of experience portraying bad guys, having appeared as Donald Pierce in Logan, The Corinthian in Netflix's The Sandman, and more recently, Kaber in Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.

When the new DCU slate was announced, James Gunn confirmed that Reeves' "BatVerse" will remain separate from the DCU, so this movie, along with Todd Phillips' Joker sequel, will be considered "Elseworlds" tales. A new actor will don the cape and cowl for Batman: The Brave and the Bold, which will also feature a different take on Robin - The Caped Crusader's son, Damian Wayne.

Robert Pattinson, Zoë Kravitz, Andy Serkis, Jeffrey Wright, and Colin Farrell are all expected to reprise their respective roles, and characters introduced in the Penguin Max spin-off series are also likely to appear. 

As far as official info goes, Reeves has stated that his sequel will continue this "epic crime saga," but that's about all we have to go on.

One rumor did claim that the story will be at least partially based on Geoff Johns' Batman: Earth One. Of course, the first film took a certain amount of inspiration from Vol. 1, so we assume the sequel would be more influenced by Volumes 2 and 3.

For those unfamiliar with the comic, Earth One takes place in the alternate continuity and features an updated and more realistic reinterpretation of the classic Batman origin and characters. Hush does not appear, but the later volumes do feature Clayface, Scarecrow, and a female take on Two-Face in Harvey Dent's twin sister Jessica.

What do you make of this casting rumor? Assuming Two-Face will appear, do you think Holbrook would be a good pick for the character? Drop us a comment down below.

The Batman - Part II recently moved from its planned October 3, 2025 release date to October 2, 2026.

@grif - Right. One of my biggest criticism of The Batman is how much is feels like an imitation. Both of Nolan and Seven. I’m not a huge Nolan fan, but it felt like Reeves was trying so hard to hit the same beats. And now his sequel may have Joker & Two-Face? It’s literally already been done.

I’m not excited for this version anyway. If you make a world where Mr Freeze or Poison Ivy or Robin don’t fit in, you’re not really making Batman.

@MG0019 - I did think that in some aspects, especially when it had a Joker tease at the end. I was kinda rolling my eyes, thinking that Batman Begins did it better.

@grif - technically 3 times if you count Batman '89's Billy Dee Williams' version.
and then on Gotham as well.

An actor who I've had in mind for a while now who I'd think would make a good Harvey Dent / Two Face is Hayden Christensen. I know that would probably draw a lot of parallels with his role as Anakin / Darth Vader, but he's got the charm and charisma for Harvey and can go dark for Two Face.

@bcom - I can kinda see it…

Not fully sold but I wouldn’t mind giving him a shot.

I do hope he starts getting more roles outside SW though.

@JFerguson - Are you trying to be funny naming movies and shows, or just simply naming the characters?

@IAmAHoot - if they call him “THE two-face” it’s gonna be awkward

No reason not to like this pick but I don't expect him to provide a layered performance like Aaron Eckhart.

He’d be good for the role, but hopefully it’s just as Dent and not Two Face. It would be nice to get a new to film villain for the next one.

Reeves didn’t have the previous DA killed without plans for Harvey to be next. All I can hear is Ledger’s voice saying, “Harvey.”

Good for him! He’s been bubbling under the surface of stardom for a while.

Who knows who good his range is but hopefully he pulls it off.

He seems like another Charlie Hunnam to me , only he’s playing villains lolm

I always thought Rufus Sewell would make a good two-face

I won’t mind if Dent is in there as a character, but I’m really hoping we are getting a different main villain like Freeze

@MrDandy - Would love to see Freeze and I believe Reeves has mentioned him in the past.Im just wondering how you do a grounded take on him?If written well I think it could be pulled off.Aslo for all the people that have complaints about the realness of this take one the Batman universe I understand .I think for those people that like the fantastic elements of the Batman comic's and animation series we will get that in Gunn's DC Batman.

@lazlodaytona - I obviously love the Joker and Batman my two favorite characters from anything because at this point they both transcend the comics books at this point LMFAO. Some time I get the question who is your favorite out of the two I'm like you can't have one without the other.Sorry for the long reply just got me thinkin.

I'm not hating if the casting rumour is true Boyd Holbrooke has been flying under the radar acting wise this part could but him in to leading role status.I have really enjoyed everything thing he has been in but always left wanting more.Also I would love to see a two face without the dual sided face if you're going for a grounded take maybe parts of him at times is a paranoid schizophrenic and he. Wrestles back and for when the has a maniac episode.Also before anyone jumps down my throat for this it's just something I'm throwing out there and would fit into today's society grounded wise.
