Aaron Eckhart learned about his fate in the next Batman movie during a chance encounter with director Christopher Nolan on a stormy beach.
The actor, who played Harvey Dent/Two Face in the acclaimed The Dark Knight was running along a deserted stretch of beach in Malibu, California on a recent stormy day when he encountered Nolan and decided to ask him if his dastardly character would be making a return to the Batman franchise.
Eckhart explains, "There was nobody on the beach and there was one figure that was coming closer and closer and it looked like he was dressed in a suit and as I got closer... I stopped and said, 'Chris, what are you doing here?' It was Chris Nolan.
"I said, 'What are you doing?' and he said, 'I'm working on the new script'. I said, 'That's interesting because a lot of people are asking me if I'm in the next script,' and he looked at me and he said, 'No,' so I ran the other way... I didn't feel like arguing with him."
