Eckhart comments on Harvey Dent’s future at Globes January 11th, 2009

From MTV:

“I think Har­vey — if he’s not dead — is in a seri­ous coma,” stated Eck­hart, “and I’m not sure he’s com­ing out. They might pull the plug on him.” Seem­ingly firm words, right? Except even the notion that his alter-ego is still alive is a clear depar­ture from pre­vi­ous state­ments where the actor was per­fectly fine con­firm­ing Harvey’s death at the busi­ness end of a freefalling drop.

We know from our recent inter­view with pro­ducer Charles Roven that screen­writ­ers Christo­pher Nolan and David Goyer have begun brain­storm­ing ideas for a third “Bat­man” film…could some­thing out of that have led to Eckhart’s about-face on Two-Face? His wink-wink-nod-nod answer seems to sug­gest that some­thing else may be at play.

Are MTV clutch­ing at straws here?
