DC Entertainment has just released a new “DC All Access” video, offering a first look at Nicholas D’Agosto as Harvey Dent in GOTHAM, He’ll make his first appearance in the ninth episode of the first season, planned to air on November 17.
Two-Face is a fictional character, a comic book supervillain that appears in comic books published by DC Comics, and is an enemy of Batman. The character first appeared in Detective Comics #66 (Aug. 1942), and was created by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Two-Face was once Harvey Dent, the clean-cut district attorney of Gotham City and an ally of Batman. Dent goes insane after mob boss Sal Maroni throws acid at him during a trial, hideously scarring the left side of his face. Dent adopts the “Two-Face” persona and becomes a criminal, choosing to bring about good or evil based upon the outcome of a coin flip. Originally, Two-Face was one of many gimmick-focused comic book villains, plotting crimes based around the number two, such as robbing Gotham Second National Bank at 2:00 on February 2 and stealing 2 million dollars.
Two-Face first appears in Detective Comics #66 with the name Harvey “Apollo” Kent; later stories changed his name to “Harvey Dent” to avoid an association with Clark Kent (Superman appears on screen in the story, although almost certainly this is one of the Fleischer cartoons).
