Batman “Arkham City” and Two-Face updates

By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Two interesting bits of Batman news circulating around the Internet today.

The first is a solid bit of confirmed news. “Batman: Arkham City,” the anticipated follow-up to the groundbreaking “Batman: Arkham Asylum” video game, will be released on Oct. 18, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirmed.

Expanding the boundaries of the initial game, “Arkham City” finds the Caped Crusader taking his fight outside the walls of the insane asylum and into the teeming streets of Gotham, where he’s expected to face off against Two-Face, Catwoman and thousands of hulking thugs.

The game, developed by Rocksteady Studio, is being developed for Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC, and if it’s one-tenth as ambitious as the first game, it will be a must-own title no matter your console.

The next bit of Bat news borders on speculation, but it’s interesting, nonetheless.

It has been believed that Aaron Eckhart’s take on Two-Face died from a fall at the end of Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight.” But CBS (courtesy of ComingSoon.net) spoke to Eckhart as he promoted “Battle: Los Angeles,” and was … coy.

“I could not possibly say,” Eckhart smiled when asked if we’d see any version of Harvey Dent in the upcoming “The Dark Knight Rises.”

Not a clear-cut denial.

Let the Internet buzz begin!
