Twenty-Seven Years Later, Billy Dee Williams Is Two-Face In (Lego) Batman Movie [Updated]

harvey_dent_billy_dee_williamsIn 1989, Billy Dee Williams played the role of Harvey Dent in Tim Burton’s Batman, with the intention of eventually portraying the villain Two-Face. Dent was set to return for 1992’s Batman Returns, but the character was replaced by Max Schreck in the film, and when Dent’s alter-ego finally appeared in 1995’s Batman Forever, he was portrayed by Tommy Lee Jones (screw you, Tommy Lee Jones!). But finally, balance has been restored to the force, as the Star Wars actor will play Two-Face at last – in The Lego Batman Movie.

The news was announced via the Twitter account of director Chris McKay, when asked by a fan if Williams would voice the character:

The happy ending to Williams’ Two-Face saga proves that anyone, if they set their mind to it, and are one of the most iconic actors of all time in one of the biggest franchises in history, can eventually, in under three decades, make their dream come true.

The Lego Batman Movie hits theaters on February 10, 2017.

UPDATE: Yes, we suck at math.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
