20 Mind-Blowing Facts About The Dark Knight Trilogy
19. Harvey Dent Was Supposed To Be In Batman Begins
Rachel Dawes was a character newly created for Batman Begins, a decision which baffled fans when Christopher Nolan really had any number of love interests for Bruce Wayne to pick and choose from the comics. Rachel's creation wasn't a bid by the filmmaker to leave his mark on Batman's world though; it was because of Two-Face.
Nolan and David Goyer wanted to introduce Harvey Dent in the first movie, but felt they wouldn't be able to do him justice. As a result, Rachel was created to serve in his place. Based on how well Dent was handled in The Dark Knight, it's likely had he been introduced in Begins, it would have still been an awesome take.
