Batman:The Dark Knight
So I heard about the Dark Knight movie a while ago. The first news came when Heath Ledger was announced to play the Joker. I had mixed feelings about this decision but you never know with people. They can surprise you. So today I was listening to a Smallville podcast and apart from talking about the new season, they spoke a little on the new Batman movie that is coming out next summer. So this peaked my interest to do a little digging. I found the new images at SuperHeroFlix.com of the Joker. I must say very impressive. It looks as if they are taking this iconic comic book character into a more realistic direction. It looks as though the permanent “smile” the Joker wears is not actually him smiling due to a botched plastic surgery job in the Burton film, but from scar tissue. Also in the teaser trailer his voice is very different and so is the laugh. Very haunting if you ask me. IMHO The Joker is the baddest of the bad when it comes to villains. There is none worse in my mind. I think it’s because he is so crazy and nonchalant when it comes to his actions. Anyway, this movie just got a lot of points on my must see factor. I can’t wait to see what else comes out.
Watch the teaser trailer here.
