Since the death of Heath Ledger over a month ago, marketing for The Dark Knight has been rather quiet, which was expected. However, I hope it doesn’t last too long as I’m sure the fans are anticipating the next viral website to pop up with clues to chase and new images to find. Note to Warner Bros: After you have finished merging with companies, slowly start some marketing for The Dark Knight again please. Thanks!
Anyway, actor Aaron Eckhart spoke to MTV Movies Blog about a couple of things, while not giving too much away.
On similarities between Batman and Two-Face:
“Well, they’re both crime fighters,” he said. “They both care about law and order. They both care about Gotham City. Although they come from different backgrounds, they share certain things. Pausing, he added, “[Things that] I cannot tell you about.”
On Batman’s female friend Rachel Dawes:
“I can’t comment on anything. I’m sorry. You gotta ask, but literally, if I ever want to work in this town again, I cannot say anything to you,” he teased, smiling. “[Chris Nolan] is a good man, but he’s a tough man.”
On working with Heath Ledger:
Eckhart says there can be no debate – Ledger’s work will “blow [you] away.”
“I had a wonderful time working with Heath. I had the chance to watch him shine in this movie,” Eckhart said. “I am glad that I was able to be in the same room and watch him work.”
