I was looking up Two-face info, and ran into this:

“Clint Eastwood was slated to play villain Two-Face in the Batman series until it was canceled in 1966


How good do you think this would’ve went over?
 
Meh, could have been cool, or could have sucked, depends on how they played it. If it was done like the rest of the series it would have sucked, there's no room for Harvey in a campy series...

*see Batman Forever

Screw Nolan's 'Realism'.
Screw Burton's 'Vision'.



Batman was better when he danced!
Your signature kinda contradicts what you're saying.

That's what I was getting at with the campiness, Forever...

And, Batman WAS better when he danced!
 
Batman Forever should be a banned word around here. :oldrazz:

You may be right, judging from his old movies, I could see him doing a decent two face if it were another series, but I doubt it would've fit well with the original show.
 
Yeah, I think he's a bit too tragic to be a campy villian...

But Schumacher handled it SO well...

Eastwood would own as an older Batman ala DKR or Batman Of The Future.

Yes, I figured it was sarcasm.

I love that series, but also love the fact that that kind of Batman depiction, like a comedy piece, is something from the past. That was the only problem with BF, wrong zeitgeist, imo.
 
Yeah, it could have only really been done in the 60's, i've got a great book that has like a double page spread for each episode and has a lot of explanations and stuff on the show, it's really good...
 
It was the 60's so I don't think Eastwood would've played up the tragic side of Harvey Dent.
 
For the 60's show, Two-Face was going to be a former news-anchor who became disfigured when a television exploded in his face.

LOL! what a stupid idea, I can picture now the silly makeup consisting of TV antennas on the head and his scarred side was going to have TV buttons.

and his motivation isn't for hating Batman but for network TV.
 
Yeah I remember that actually, apparently thats what a lot of the newer Clayface stuff was actually based off. Could have been cool, but meh, all in the past now...

I think they wouldn't have done it. After all, they stayed quite true to the characters and their looks.

@Eastwood-as-Two-Face: that would have been definitely perfect, but we have to remember: Two-Face wasn't a big villain at the time. Same goes for the Scarecrow. There were only the Joker, Catwoman and the Penguin, the remaining ones like the riddler were actually brought back by the show to the comics. So when a lot of people ask "Where were Two-Face & scarecrow in the show?" the answer should not be "They are too gruesome".
 
Not that there too gruesome, just... I dunno, I don't think it would have worked within the confines of the show. Doesn't matter, over 40 years ago now!
