Los Angeles, Dec 7 (IANS) Actor Peter Sarsgaard has joined the cast of “The Batman” in a mystery role.
Director Matt Reeves took to Twitter on Friday to announce his latest casting coup, prompting fans to speculate he might be the new District Attorney Harvey Dent, who becomes the villain Two-Face, reports aceshowbiz.com.
The character has previously been played on the big screen by Tommy Lee Jones and Aaron Eckhart.
