Is Boyd Holbrook Playing Two-Face In The Batman 2? Here’s What We’re Hearing

Is Boyd Holbrook Playing Two-Face In The Batman 2? Here's What We're Hearing


Superhero movie casting is always a fascinating topic, and fans may have bumped into an exclusive report by the Medium account BreakingFilm that Boyd Holbrook will play Harvey "Two-Face" Dent in "The Batman Part II." Unfortunately, this isn't true, as potentially amazing as the casting might be. Looper has learned from a source who's familiar with the project that Holbrook hasn't been cast in the role. 

As far as the DC movie and TV timeline goes, the fact that "The Batman Part II" isn't quite that far with its casting process is in line with the comments DC Studios co-head James Gunn has made about "Waller." The show is currently slated to premiere in 2024, which may or may not be liable to change — but it will likely drop well before "The Batman" sequel, which currently has its premiere date on October 2, 2026.


It's worth noting that Gunn's post that "Waller" hasn't even started the casting process came on March 25 — the same day BreakingFilm posted another exclusive about Corey Hawkins being in talks to join the show's cast. It seems unlikely that "The Batman Part II" is any further along the road … especially since this particular Elseworlds corner of the DC Universe is still waiting on "The Batman" spin-off series "The Penguin," and the show starring an unrecognizable Colin Farrell just received its first trailer on March 22. 


The Batman — Part II may not even have a complete script yet

Is Boyd Holbrook Playing Two-Face In The Batman 2? Here's What We're Hearing


Boyd Holbrook is a good actor with a penchant for appearing in comic book-adjacent projects in villainous roles. As the terrifying Corinthian from "The Sandman" and Donald Pierce in "Logan," he's definitely proved his mettle when it comes to antagonizing popular characters. However, at the moment it really doesn't look like he'll be adding the role of Two-Face on the list … especially since it remains unclear whether "The Batman Part II" even has a script just yet. 

In a February interview with Variety, Jeffrey Wright (who will return as Commissioner Gordon in "The Batman — Part II") flat out stated that he, at least, has no idea about the movie's script situation. "I have not read the script," he said. "I have not received the script. I'm waiting patiently." 

Two-Face is certainly one of the new characters we hope to see in "The Batman Part II." However, it remains to be seen whether he'll actually show up — as well as who will play the iconic villain if he does.
