Behind the scenes

  • In the earlier drafts of the script, Harvey Dent was set to appear in Batman Returns, played by Billy Dee Williams. He was going to be used in the Max Shreck's role, and the scarring of his face (which would turn him into the villain Two-Face) was set to happen during the finale when Catwoman kisses him while holding onto the Penguin's generator. (This would then, in turn set up the third movie, in which Two-Face was going to appear as the main villain).
  • Daniel Waters, one of the writers, wanted to have Harvey Dent start to come back, and just have one scene of him where he flips a coin and it is the good side of the coin. Waters thought it was only to be a very small subplot, which would have developed into the next movie.
  • In Batman Forever, Tommy Lee Jones took over the role for Billy Dee Williams' portrayal of Harvey Dent in Batman, and both their portrayals should  be viewed as part of the same continuity, besides the fact that Billy Dee Williams is African American and Tommy Lee Jones is Caucasian.
  • When Two-Face was to become the main villain in a unproduced third Burton-directed film, director Tim Burton had abdicated to Joel Schumacher, who decided to hire Tommy Lee Jones.
