Alright! I can't wait to see this one man. Batman Begins was damn excellent, and I loved it. Even have the DVD. I know this one will be great.

Heath Ledger as The Joker? You've got to be sh*tting me. bored.gif


But hey I guess if Topher Grace can be turned into Venom for Spider-Man, then Heath Ledger can be turned into The Joker.

That whole topher thing is still yet to be debated.

Heath Ledger. I've only liked him in two movies. The Patriot, and Lords of Dogtown.

Heath Ledger is playing a very young Joker. I could see that happening if they wrote his character properly. I trust Christopher Nolan knows what he's doing after I saw the ultimate ownage that was Batman Begins.

I'd heard a while ago that Sean Penn was rumored to be playing the joker, but then again, it was just a rumor. Heath Ledger is a good actor, but that's just such an odd casting decision. I'd be interesting to see though.

Sean Penn is like 60 years old. I think it would f*ck with the continuity of the story for the young Joker to look older than when Nicholson played him 15+ years ago. This is supposed to be the early Batman, remember.

I heard about this while I was just reading articles on Wikipedia. I cannot wait for this movie to come out. Batman Begins was an excellent movie and I think that this upcoming one might be even better.

(I didn't read the article, if it was mentioned sorry, the movie is set for release in 2008)

"Like Ledger, however, Hoffman is said to be reluctant to join the sequel."

Being reluctant to do a film is never really a good thing. However, that's the first time they even mention it in the article. confused.gif

I dunno about Ledger. I suppose Nolan knows what he's doing. I just want this movie to be amazing. Begins is my favorite superhero movie ever.

Also, what's the deal with Harvey Dent? IMDB has him mentioned as part of the story (but IMDB isn't alway accurate). I'd definitely like to see some Two-Face action.

Considering the new Batman series is featuring more of a realistic feel rather than its' over-the-top predecessors, I could see Ledger doing it to an extent. There are other candidates who may have been a good pick including possibly Jake Gyllenhaal given his work in Donnie Darko as some kind of psycho.

Yeah Heath is a strange choice, I don't really like him but Nolan should be able to make it work especially after how great Batman Begins worked out.

It would make sense to introduce Harvey as the new DA in this movie, and possibly make a following movie with the whole holliday killer episode and have him turn into two face.

I'd love to see Two Face in this movie considering that they ruined the character in Batman Forever.

Nolan knows what's up. I trust him. Batman Begins blew me away when I saw it in theaters, enough that I had to see it twice.

Now, if I could just have a word with Mr. Raimi about Topher Grace.......

Batman Begins was awesome, I'm sure The Dark Knight will be pretty good.

Nolan knows what he's doing.

I don't think I've seen this Ledger fellow in much movies, but he does have that weird sort of voice. He could pull of a psychotic character quite easily with that accent/tone.

Batman Begins kicked so much ass on so many levels. It's probably the best movie that I've seen and thoroughly enjoyed in a hell of a long time, and for those that haven't seen it, I feel very sorry for you.

Dark Knight Teaser trailer
It's a pretty bad trailer, it just has the last scene from Batman Begins in it, and it just shows some really quick clips of Heath Ledger in a purple suit.

I read about this the other day. I think it's good I guess, but I probably won't see it. Because they're getting the worst person to play Joker. And the fact that the title should be called "Batman: The dark Knight" Not just The Dark Knight. People will get confused...because alot of retards nowadays don't know sh*t about comics and won't know what the hell it's talking about. lol...I just hope they at least put the bat symbal on the poster.

May be a silly question, but is Bale definetly set to star as The Caped Crusader? He's the best Batman yet, very underrated actor IMO.

Worst person to play Joker? I think he could pull it off - he's a good actor despite some sh*tty movies he's been in. I'm not even sure he's going to be the main enemy in the movie, but rather the human element of all of the crimlords in Gotham. The title just being 'The Dark Knight' is ballsy, but Nolan knows what he's doing, and I personally think it definitely works.

Just think, maybe if they introduce Harvey Dent in this movie, they'll make a third based off of the Long Halloween.

I'd like Batman to get back to it's old dark roots. The last two movies before Batman Begins were f*cking abominations.

That'd kick all kinds of arse.
