First picture of Heath Ledger as the Joker


Okay, so he may not have been my first choice of someone to play the Joker in Christopher Nolan’s follow-up to Batman Begins, but I never though Heath Ledger would make a bad Joker. Now they’ve released the first picture of Heath Ledger in Joker make-up, and… my goodness, this is shaping up nicely, isn’t it? I really like the move away from the traditional demented clown look into a more gritty, Ichi the Killer-style scar.

Although I still think it’s a shame we’ll never get to see what Vincent Cassel could have done with the role.

    firstly – SWEET ZOMBIE JESUS. i actually liked the idea of Ledger as the joker for two reasons. he wasn’t an obvious choice and he has an insanely creepy grin anyway, so fuckin’ it up, as they have, will only make it even creepier.

    secondly, Vincent Cassel as the joker! JK, why aren’t you producing big-budget comic-strip adaptations! i want to see a horror film set in the Vatican jk….MAKE IT HAPPEN

    how?!? please tell me!

    there was the original batman! and the michael keaton batman… the michael keaton batman used Jack nicholson to be Jack nappoli! i love heath ledger but there is no way that he could ever be the joker…

    I also love Christian bale but everyone know michael keaton is the best batman ever…

    im totally confussed why they would do another first batman….

    OMG keaton was the best batman ever. you’re right! jakc nicholson might not have had the look, but he’s damn good actor and his style was perfect. only time will tell. wish keaton could have stayed batman though. the others are too pretty.

    WOW! you people are fools! for the first time they have a batman that is actualy ripped and doesn’t just where a suit of Plastic muscles, Keaton is a great actor but Bale takes the cake
