During a recent interview for his new sci-fi action film, "Battle: Los Angeles," Aaron Eckhart hinted at a surprise-return to his character, Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face in Christopher Nolan's upcoming sequel, "The Dark Knight Rises."

This would be a shock to must fans who by now are well aware of Harvey Dent's outcome in 2008's "The Dark Knight."

Getting hard information from any of the major players in "The Dark Knight Returns," from director Christopher Nolan to the actors involved, has not been easy.

Earlier this week in an interview with MTV, Gary Oldman, who plays Jim Gordon in "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight," said he hadn't yet seen a script but knew the story was great.

He didn't offer details but said that he thought the movie Christopher Nolan is making will top "The Dark Knight."
