The Batman already has a host of villains set to appear, and it looks like director Matt Reeves' is looking for one more.
According to Jason Kroll, a reporter for Variety, a cast member from the HBO show Succession was asked to take on the role of Two-Face/Harvey Dent, but passed on the offer. "Did hear a certain member of the "Roy Family" was asked to play the Dent role but they ended up passing," he wrote in a tweet.

Two-Face made his comics debut in Detective Comics #66, all the way back in August 1942. A pre-villainized version of Harvey Dent was portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in Tim Burton's Batman, while Tommy Lee Jones and Aaron Eckhart took on the full role in Batman Forever and The Dark Knight, respectively.
The Batman is directed by Matt Reeves, who will also produce alongside Dylan Clark. Casting is still underway, with the film scheduled to be released on June 25, 2021.
