It has been almost 30 years since Star Wars actor Billy Dee Williams starred as Gotham City District Attorney Harvey Dent in Tim Burton's Batman and the 1992 follow-up Batman Returns.
Now, Chris McKay has taken to Twitter to reveal that the iconic actor will reprise the role once again in his highly anticipated animated feature The LEGO Batman Movie, which arrives in theatres this coming February.
When asked by a fan if Billy Dee Williams would be voicing Two-Face in the film, McKay tweeted:
He does https://t.co/sf1x4NtRzS— Chris McKay (@buddboetticher) November 30, 2016
Currently, it is unknown how big a role the character will have in the film, but this is still some seriously great news, and an awesome move on the part of Warner Bros. and DC Entertainment.
Despite playing Dent in two Batman movies, Williams was replaced by Tommy Lee Jones before he got the chance to play the character's villainous alter ego. It's surely going to be lots of fun to finally hear Williams in the role after all these years!
Featuring the voice talents of Will Arnett, Michael Cera, Rosario Dawson and Zach Galifianakis, The LEGO Batman Movie arrives in theatres on February 10th.
