Gemma Arterton as Glidia Dent

There haven’t been any true depictions of Gilda Dent in any format. In Batman: The Animated Series, a version of Glidia existed, Grace Lamont. While in Nolan’s The Dark Knight, Rachel Dawes also shares some of Glidia qualities.

Glidia admits to being the first Holiday killer in The Long Halloween. There are inconsistencies in her admission, but her love for Harvey was a major reason.

She wanted to start a family, but Harvey was caught up in taking down the Flacone family. So, she did it herself, but didn’t continue.

Dent leaves the door open for more appearances across the DCEU. Her character is vague enough to warrant creative freedom.

In some ways, she’s an anti-villain. She just happens to display sociopath behavior. Dent gives Batman, her husband, and the GCPD the slip.

When thinking about Gemma Arterton, you think of an underrated actress with fantastic range and engaging on-screen presence. It’s easy to see Arterton playing a woman with a double life, a woman, willing to do what it takes for her husband.

By day, she’s the fiance of Harvey Dent. By night, or at least on holidays, she’s taking out bad guys. Her voice is amazing ,so who wouldn’t want to listen to her voice during a monologue confession?
