I dont have an acount... yet, but I have a question, how is it explained that this Harvey Dent is Black and the one in Batman Forever is white?, um, half white I mean...
It isnt it is just down to recasting. It is unexplained as is the fact that Gotham changed from dark to neon lighted. Doomlurker 00:36, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Oh, okay, it seems kinda strange though...
it was a change of director. Tim Burton wanted Williams back but when Schumacher tookover he cast Tommy Lee Jones. Doomlurker 00:46, 10 December 2008 (UTC)
Not something to get hung up on. The Batman/Bruce actors' hair and eye colors changed. Rachel's eyes changed. 18.104.22.168 03:06, 10 December 2008 (UTC)

I think Billy Dee should have played a different charictor like Lucius Fox, CEO of Wayne Enterprises who made his first appereance in Batman #307 (January 1979) but not Harvey Dent cause nothing he did in the movie convinced me he was the right guy. Don't get me wrong but while growing up on the comics i always believed that Harvey Dent was a White guy and it should stay that way. I mean think about it. If Tim Burton was the director instead of Joel Schumacher for the 3rd Batman Film, we would have gotten a black Richard Grayson, a teenager who's a garage mechanic instead of a circus boy that we all know and love played by Marlon Wayans. LIke i said, Billy Dee was just a token black guy who did nothing in the film. The only good thing he did was read Batman's letter in the end and introduce the Bat-signal. That was it! Waste of time and character. Shadowhawk27 21:03, September 15, 2010 (UTC)
Hi. I know about how Joel Schumacher hired Tommy Lee Jones instead of Billy Dee Williams when he took over production, and how Williams and Jones are two different races, but shouldn't the two portrayals be merged into one Wiki page? After all, they are part of the same continuity. I know that it makes no sense how he would go from black to white, but the two portrayals were of one single character in one continuity. I'm just wondering why they are considered different (by there being two pages).
