The Batman’s superstuffed cast is only growing larger. Writer/director Matt Reeves’ upcoming take on the Caped Crusader and his Rogues Gallery adds another name to its massive list of A-listers and, possibly, another villain to its lineup.

Adding one more name to a cast led by Robert Pattinson’s Bruce Wayne and bolstered by John Turturro, Zoë Kravitz, Paul Dano, Colin Farrell, Jeffrey Wright, and Andy Serkis, Reeves tweeted out a GIF today — as he’s done in the past with other casting announcements — of Green Lantern and Wormwood actor Peter Sarsgaard.

Take a look:

While there is some speculation on social media that Saarsgard could be playing District Attorney Harvey Dent AKA Two-Face, his role is so far unconfirmed. THR and many commenters are already thinking Dent:

Further evidence pointing that way includes a post by his wife, actress Maggie Gyllenhaal. She posted a picture of the actor yesterday "halfway through a shave."

Hint, hint:

The Batman is aiming to swoop into theaters on June 25, 2021.
