Ever since the end of The Dark Knight, there has been much speculation that Aaron Eckhart's villainous Two-Face is still alive, and that he will be making an appearance in The Dark Knight Rises. In early November, Eckhart himself claimed to not know if he was going to be asked back by director Christopher Nolan. Now, he does know the answer, and it is: No, Aaron Eckhart will not be back as Two-Face.

The actor recently chatted with MTV, where they asked Aaron about the fate of his most famous alter ego. Here is what he had to say:

"Christopher and I had a meeting, on the beach, just the two of us. I said, 'Christopher, a lot of people are asking me if I'm in (The Dark Knight Rises). And Christopher said, 'Yes?' I said, 'Am I?' He looked at me and he said, 'No.''...It's even weirder than I'm explaining it. We found ourselves alone on the beach together on a stormy day and he delivered the news to me. I was heartbroken. But Christopher has his reasons and my life must go on. Honestly, it was Heath (Ledger)'s movie to go on. We had a great movie. I'm so honored to be a part of that movie. I know Christopher has got something in store that is going to blow everybody away."

So, there you have it from the man himself. There will be no Two-Face in The Dark Knight Rises.
