Aaron Eckhart interview on CHUD:
"I asked Chris if there was a chance of coming back. 'No way,' he said. 'He's toast.'"
And again on Superhero Hype:
"No, I'm not coming back. I think unfortunately, Heath [Ledger] was supposed to go on and that didn't work out. I'm nobody. I'm a cog. I have no say over this sort of stuff. I'm sure that there's so many other characters that they could whip together. I heard Angelina Jolie was going to be Catwoman or something like that. I thought that was a great idea. I'd like to be in that one."
