The New Batman Movie...

..has just been announced.

Although it is some way off (filming starts 2007!!) I just can't help but get excited.

They've also confirmed who is going to play the Joker. Heath Ledger

Anybody heard of him? or seen him in anything else? Seems to have done a few big films.

Heath Ledger as the joker? Now that is a joke.

Heath Ledger: http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0005132/

Recently appeared in:

Untitled Batman Begins Sequel (2008) (pre-production) (rumored) .... The Joker
I'm Not There (2006) (pre-production) .... Bob Dylan
Candy (2006) .... Dan
Casanova (2005) .... Casanova
Brokeback Mountain (2005) .... Ennis Del Mar
The Brothers Grimm (2005) .... Jacob Grimm

Looks like he's playing Bob Dylan, too. Weird.

I think the Untitled Batman Begins Sequel will be (the new one) Dark Knight, even though they haven't started shooting yet!?

I had a quick look on imdb as well as I hadn't heard of him. Must say it brought a little smile to my face when I saw he'd been in Brokeback Mountain....Anyone fancy a gay Joker then

The first two batman movies were excellent I thought, the first one in particular. After Tim burton toddled off it went seriously downhill. And Jack Nicholson is gonna take some beating as the Joker.

The character of the Joker will change a lot I bet - not quite as flamboyant as Nicholson's.

Yeah, more sinister like the Scarecrow.

I can't fucking wait for this movie. I loved Batman Begins.

I agree. And that's because they stayed true to the comics...

Hoping for a bit of a twisted/fucked up Joker like in Killing Joke (the comic) as oppose to the quirky mainstream Nicholson incarnation. Not that I have a problem with Jack's version as it suited the style of film. But Batman is all dark now...

That must be your favorite word.

And it's meant as an insult by the kind of person who's threatened by those who are more technically-savvy and interested in things outside the mainstream or things that aren't "hip", but I take it as a compliment.
