BHM 7: Harvey Dent

Harvey Dent, aka Two-Face, was created in 1942 by Bob Kane and Bill Finger. Throughout all of his portrayals, the character was depicted as white. In 1989, when director Tim Burton was casting for his film, 'Batman', he decided to go a different route and picked Billy Dee Williams, marking the first, and so far only, depiction of Dent as an African-American. The original plan was for Williams to play Dent's alter-ego Two-Face in a future film, unfortunately that never came to be.
