So far marketing for The Dark Knight has focused almost entirely on Heath Ledger's Joker, somewhat overlooking the movie's inclusion of another classic Batman villain - Two-Face. With the curtain slowly being rolled back on the character, the LA Times has an interesting interview with actor Aaron Eckhart who promises that the make-up will be considerably more harrowing than the garish, camp depiction in 1995's Batman Forever.

Yikes! Not liking that look, hope it isn't the real thing.

You may call it garish and camp, but I really liked the actual prosthetics on Tommy Lee Jones' Two-Face much more. Minus the crazy half suit, obviously.

Looked like a photoshop job to me.

I hope so, at least!

Yeah, it was a mock-up of some sort, it wasn't an actual in-film still or anything. I strongly suspected it was a fake/rumour.....until the studio had it pulled. Which suggests it is official - though it might be an early concept rather than the actual thing.

It would, however, fit in with the story connections to The Long Halloween, which had a similarly gruesome Two-Face:

It is a photoshop, the image was part of the concept art that 3D artists worked with to create the final image. So I doubt it will be an exact likeness.
