Joker's wild

Joker_2 Here's a first glimpse of what Heath Ledger will look like as The Joker in next summer's The Dark Knight, director Christopher Nolan's follow-up to his excellent Batman Begins. Judging by the creep-out factor of the photo, it's safe to assume Nolan is preserving the mature, camp-free tone of the first movie.

I LOVE the way Joker looks in this film! That is incredibly creepy. I can't wait to see what Ledger brings to the performance. I haven't been this hyped for a film in YEARS.


It isn't too early to deliver a truck-load worth of Best Supporting Actress awards to Leslie Mann this very second. Uh-uh.
