The Highly Anticipated Role of Two-Face in the Next Batman Movie - Who Will be Cast?

Rumors circulate that The Batman Part 2 may have found its Two-Face villains as two actors are reportedly being considered for the role Fans eagerly await the official announcement of who will bring the iconic character to life in the upcoming film

Director Matt Reeves is already on the hunt for fresh talent for the sequel of his highly successful film, The Batman, which received both critical acclaim and box office success in 2022. Despite being in the early stages of production, rumors suggest that Robert Pattinson's Batman may soon encounter a formidable new adversary. In the previous installment, The Batman, the caped crusader fought corruption in Gotham City while taking on the enigmatic serial killer, The Riddler, portrayed by Paul Dano. Earlier this year, James Gunn, co-CEO of DC Studios, confirmed the sequel's release in 2025, as part of the "DC Elseworlds" series of projects that deviate from the standard DC Comics universe.

Rumors about the villain in The Batman 2 have been circulating as the film heads into pre-production. While there has been no confirmation on who the villain will be, some speculate that either Clayface or Two-Face will take on the challenge. This comes after the previous installment of The Batman was slated to have two villains - The Riddler and Joker. Currently, actors Josh Hartnett and Joel Edgerton are said to be contenders for the role of Two-Face. It's been suggested that the new District Attorney, played by John Rocha, may ultimately transform into Two-Face by the end of the film.

Hartnett has previously declined the roles of Batman, Superman, and Spider-Man long before the inception of Marvel and DC Cinematic Universes. Recently, he has starred in Guy Ritchie's Operation Fortune: Russe de Guerre and will soon portray American Physicist Ernest Lawrence in Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer. On the other hand, Edgerton has appeared in the Star Wars limited series Obi-Wan Kenobi as the young version of Luke Skywalker's Uncle Owen.

DC Studios' Batman reimagining by Reeves brings a much-needed change of pace to the company, which has been embroiled in various controversies and negative criticism concerning its main cinematic universe, the DCEU. With the upcoming Flash film facing negative press due to the problematic history of its lead actor, Ezra Miller, it remains to be seen how well it will fare. However, James Gunn's increased involvement in the studio and the established fandom of The Batman could potentially lead to a successful resurgence of film adaptations from iconic comics.

The Batman Part II will debut in theaters on October 3, 2025.
