    Joker should scar him in the very end of the movie, letting out his evil side once and for all. Joker is on trial and throws acid on the side of his face.

    The plot summary from Bof of Nolan and Goyer's plan for a trilogy said that it would be Joker that does it. They might've changed it later but I think it's a good idea. It makes sense for Joker to use acid and it shows how crazy and evil he is. It could also set the stage for a fight between Joker and Two-Face in the last film.

    I had an idea that's closer to the comics, but the Joker is still involved.

    Bats thinks Joker is dead, after having fallen (off of something, haven't worked that part out yet) during their climactic battle. Gordon has managed to bring Maroni (or whatever Crime Boss) in, and Dent will be prosecuting. During some sort of psychiatric session (or something along those lines) one Dr. Harleen Quinzell would inform Maroni he had a visitor: Joker. Joker would supply Maroni with the acid, and the rest would go as the comics go.

    It's just an outline of what could happen, but I like it

    Not to be a stickler, but there's no way someone would be able to bring acid to a trial unless it was supposed to there as evidence (which is how I believe it happened in the comic)

    actually, it was his hidden in a bottle of Pepto Bismol, which he claimed he needed for his ulcer. Not sure if that would actually work in real life.

    IN TLH (which I'm pretty sure is canon) Maroni brought the acid for "an ulcer", hidden in his coat

    It was just an idea, anyway

    Hm. I always thought it was on the evidence table. But that works.

    I still need to read TLH

    Dent's assistant gives the acid to Maroni who hides it under his coat. It's long time since I read THL.

    Yeah dent's assistant gave it to Maroni. The thing about the evidence was the coin which belonged to Maroni.

    Did it? I thought it belong to Dent's father Richard maybe I'm confusing with a different story.

    Goyer said that's what he had planned back when he was ask if Joker and Two-Face would be in the sequel and the third film. Joker and Harvey Dent in the sequel is what we'll get first, with a set up for Two-Face toward the end. Could change though.

    this is just me and my opinion but i really really dont want the joker to be the one who scars harvey! I`m pretty sure thats not how it`ll go down since Eric Roberts said himself that they stay pretty close to the comics and hopefully it`ll go down the way it went in TLH. I just really dont want the Joker and Harvey going at it as a third film and then having batman try to play the hippie `peacemaker` type. If the joker isnt in arkham throughout or at least most of the third film (which i hope) then two-face and joker should find some sort of common ground and go after batman together if anything.

    I totally agree! I think Maroni is still going to be the one that does, it just won't be in a courtroom.

    Nah, it has to happen in court, that's half the point. It's symbolic and that.

    An explosion could work the same as acid though, a small bomb or grenade device. Although if Joker and his acid have already been introduced (there were rumours Joker uses acid on Batmans old suit) then it's a no-brainer to follow it through to the courtroom as well. That would tie Joker into Two-Face's origin as Goyer originally intended, without having him actually throw the stuff. That said I think it's obvious Joker will have ALOT to do with Dents transformation anyway, although Jonah Nolans effort will be much more elegant and less heavy handed than Goyers idea.

    The ferry crisis will be the entry for Two-Face.

    i got the long halowwen as a side xmas present so it's preaty fresh in my mind

    the reason i wanted this is not only coz its considered a classic but because i read somewhere that it was the basis for tdk

    so in this it is maroni that throws the (ulser) acid at dent because dent was part responsible for the falcone' killings but i dont believe this will pan out like that in tdk with a holiday killer so there has to be another motive in the movie that we have all over looked

    any way im sure nolan will deliver movie magic again

    so why so serious?

    It's a movie, anything can happen!! :woot::woot::cwink:

    He may stick the acid in a jar of salsa and decide to bust out some tortilla chips and salsa for a snack during testimony. :woot::oldrazz:

    I wonder how the entire courtroom scene ultimately plays out. I mean there has to be one, right? I wonder how long it takes and which characters are involved. I guess TDK won't be turning into a courtroom drama all of a sudden but the scarring of Dent is such a pivotal moment that the courtroom scene has to have plenty of depth and the scarring is just the ultimate "pay-off".
