Yeah, they’re not hiding the ball with Two-Face.
They want everyone to go into this with the knowledge of what happens to Harvey Dent. Based on the heavy focus on Harvey Dent in the viral marketing, it seems like they will really play up his origin story (“Two-Face Begins”?). It probably will work well, because the origins are usually the most compelling part of any comic book hero/villain, and from what I’ve read, they don’t address the Joker’s origin (I like that choice).
It’s kind of a contrast to Batman Begins, with the Ducard/Ra’s Al Guhl switch that was so surprising (at least to me).
We all knew that WB was going to play up the Two-Face angle more after Heath’s passing, so that’s no surprise. I agree with Nathaniel about giving Michael Caine a little more to do. He was wonderful as Alfred, even if he doesn’t look like the comic book version.
Not that Michael Gough was bad either… He was probably the best casting of anyone in the Burton/Schumacher pics, but he didn’t bring the warmth or emotion over caring for Bruce and the Wayne legacy the way Caine did in BB. That, and having Alfred betray Bruce’s secret to Vicki in the 1989 film was just so, so wrong.
