Peter Sarsgaard Joins Cast of the Batman as (Maybe) Two-Face!

The cast of Matt Reeves’ The Batman is getting bigger as well as bigger, as well as now includes one of Peter Sarsgaard. Sarsgaard has some history with DC movies, having starred as the villain Hector Hammond in the ill-fated eco-friendly Lantern. While his function in The Batman hasn’t officially been announced, there is one major hint that Peter Sarsgaard may play Two-Face.

In a rather strange Instagram post, Gyllenhaal published a photo of her other half Peter with half his head shaved as well as the subtitle “Half method with his shave.” It would be ironic (in the Alanis Morissette sense of the word) if Sarsgaard does play Two-Face in The Batman. In Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight, Maggie Gyllenhaal played Rachel Dawes—Harvey Dent’s like interest. Sarsgaard would definitely make a excellent Harvey Two-Face Dent, however again, not confirmed.



Sarsgaard may Play a different function Altogether

All Reeve’s tweet stated was:

Oh… Hi, Peter… ?

That’s not a great deal to go on, however according to JoBlo, there’s a rumor that he’ll play a corrupt authorities policeman named Wasserman. This would be a new character for the Batman universe, as well as seems unlikely as there are lots of recognized corrupt police officer characters in the DC Universe, like Harvey Bullock. Why make a new character when Reeves, at this point, might most likely get like John Goodman to play Bullock. At this point, his cast is so awesome, it seems like anything is possible.

Reeves has been casting for rather a while now, as well as Peter Sarsgaard feels like a late edition for a film that’s already filming. If Sarsgaard does end up playing Two-Face, his function may be similar to Billy Dee Williams’s turn as Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s Batman. Originally, Williams cameoed as Harvey Dent as well as was implied to come back to play as Two-Face, however when Joel Schumacher took over the Bat-franchise, they chose to choose Tommy Lee Jones. however it’s likely that if Sarsgaard is Two-Face that a) he’ll appear briefly as Harvey Dent as well as ended up being Two-Face later, or b) he’ll appear briefly as Two-Face as well as have a bigger function later.

Either way, this is one of the very best casts you might ask for.

Oh what might have been. (Image: Instagram)
