I believe in Harvey Dent!
~ Harvey's slogan
Either you die a hero, or you live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
~ Harvey's speech

Harvey Dent, later dubbed as Harvey Two-Face or simply called Two-Face, was the tritagonist-turned-secondary antagonist of the 2008 film The Dark Knight, and a posthumous antagonist in the 2012 film The Dark Knight Rises.

Upon being elected as Gotham City's district attorney, the idealistic Dent dedicated himself to ridding the city of organized crime. However, he was horribly disfigured in an explosion rigged by Joker that also killed his fiancee Rachel Dawes. Driven insane with grief, he became a vigilante and swore revenge on everyone he held responsible for Rachel's death, including his former allies Batman and Commissioner Jim Gordon .

He was portrayed by Aaron Eckhart.

Overview

Harvey is a high powered district attorney that is trying to help bring down the criminal empire in Gotham, and a friend of Bruce Wayne. However, after the Joker kills his love, Rachel Dawes, and completely disfigures his face, he changes his mindset and decides to go after those he deems responsible for his misfortune.

He then tries to get revenge on Batman, and Gordon. While trying to kill Gordon's son, Batman intervenes and causes them all to fall from a building. Batman and Gordon's son are able to hang on, but Harvey is killed outright.

Batman then takes responsibilty for Dent's crimes, so Gotham's citizens won't lose hope. 

Trivia

  • His alias "Harvey Two-Face" was never adopted by himself, it was only mentioned by Gordon.
  • Despite being the secondary antagonist, Two-Face is the final villain that Batman faces in the film.
  • Dent and Talia al Ghul were the most personal villains for Bruce Wayne in The Dark Knight Trilogy. Dent represented the idealistic version of Batman, which doesn't need a cape and gadgets to cleanse the city from the criminals. At the same time, Talia was an anti-Batman. Basically she in The Dark Knight Rises is Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins if he drowned down in his desire to avenge his parents' deaths and agreed to lead the League of Shadows' crusade against Gotham. Ultimately, both Talia and Dent are the only villains which were killed by Batman himself.
