    You've just cracked why he's older now.

    A 22 year old isn't a Prosecutor (or Assistant District Attorney). A 22 year old is an intern. In order to graduate from law school, you need to get both an undergrad degree (four year program) and a law degree (three year program). While you can graduate from undergrad early, law school actually has mandatory time pretty much preventing that. 25 is the earliest realistic age with 26 or 27 more plausible.

    It is a bad change because it unnecessarily alters a dynamic between Bruce and Harvey both being young up and coming crime fighters from different aspects of the law.

    So far the only two villains whom have been shown as children are female (Ivy and Catwoman) because both are supposed to be young beautiful and sexy when they become villains.

    Everyone else is going to have at least 20 years on Bruce just so the show can introduce them all early. Penguin's the only one it really works for with the character since he's always been older than Batman by at least 20 years.

    That's because Schumacher's Two Face had MUCH bigger problems than his age, like being a walking camp fest always trying to out ham Carey's Riddler, always flipping his coin to make one decision, and generally being appallingly acted by Jones. His Harvey Dent was non existent in the movie.

    I mean really going to the Schumacher movies for a defense...

    But asides that, I liked Bruce's conflict over Harvey and them both considering themselves close personal friends...Despite the age gap.

    And I love BF :(

    That was non existent in the movie. Never explored or even referenced at all except for one passing line by Dent ("Thank you, you've always been a good friend") just before he died at the end.

    It came from Bruce though.
    But like you said, more emphasis was on TF's campiness :o

    It didn't come from Bruce. Dent said that.

    No, the stuff with Bruce. His conflict and relationship with Harvey.

    And when Harvey did think of Bruce again, after knowing he was Batman, he was more than happy to kill him, without a second thought!

    It's like the series makers are taking no consideration to think what ages these characters will be when Batman hits his 20's.

    What conflict and relationship with Harvey? What movie were you watching? Name me key scenes that explored this. There was none. He was just an enemy trying to kill him over and over. It became like the Coyote and the Roadrunner. Cartoonish.

    Until the final scene where Dent said Bruce had always been a good friend you'd have had no idea they ever had a prior existing friendship at all.

    Yeah so?

    To be fair, the Harvey/Bruce relationship is more rooted in the comics than the movie but with the age cap it certainly wont happen in this TV series.

    Not really. Harvey looks to be, at most, his low twenties. So when Bruce becomes Batman, he'll be in his 50s.

    This is not a show about Batman, hence the age gaps between Bruce and the villains.

    If Harvey is, say, 25, and Bruce becomes Batman in 15 years (so 27ish) that puts Dent at 40. Which... you guys are making it sound ancient. That's when a lot of men are at their most attractive! And especially for a career in law/politics, 40 is not that old.

    40 yr old Two Face is very believable. All the teens and 20 something's posting in this thread need to trust us old timers on this one. :)

    Probably because this show is more about Gordon than Batman.

    Nah, more like

    "Harvey Dent, man of many faces."

    "No. Just one or two."

    All of those are way too subtle.

    The actor will wink at the camera when he says it.

    I'm sure in all of Harvey's scenes the lighting is gonna be adjusted so that theres always a shadow covering half of his face. Cause, you know, foreshadowing.
