While we wait to learn which villain Christopher Nolan will spotlight in The Dark Knight Rises, we don't have to wait any longer to find out which villain WON'T appear—Aaron Eckhart 's scar-faced Harvey Dent, who we all assumed was being set up to return as Two-Face.

Eckhart told MTV News:

"Chris and I had a meeting, on the beach, just the two of us ... I said, 'Chris, a lot of people are asking me if I'm in the next Batman. And Chris said, 'Yes?' I said, 'Am I?' He looked at me and he said, 'No.'

"And I was heartbroken. I was heartbroken. But Chris has his reasons and my life must go on."
