LOGAN Star Boyd Holbrook Rumored To Be In Talks To Play Two-Face In THE BATMAN

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.
