A scarred Joker?

I know Im not the only one anticipating the first images of Heath Ledger/Christopher Nolans version of the Joker in the upcoming THE DARK KNIGHT, more than the return of the Messiah (and Im in love with the Messiah). So it is with glee that I bring you this brief but juicy report from the premiere Batman on film site on the web, brilliantly titled Batman-on-film. The people over at BOF picked up this from a reliable source:

* The Joker will have gray skin with scarring.

* The Joker's costume will be raggedy (This may confirm the info BOF got a long while ago saying that his costume will look as if it was something he put together one piece at a time).

* He's going to look damn scary, not clownish.

The same source later updated the site saying this isnt a description of the final design, but is indicative of where theyre going. What do you guys think? Scarring? Does that mean Two Face will have green hair, red lips, and a purple suit? Thanks to dimos for the heads up.

Extra Tidbit: I saw Heath Ledger at a local bar here in Montreal and boy is he a crazy dancer, alcohol induced I presume.

This is what it might look like...

I was just checkin through wikipedia and found that if you type in joker and go to the bottom of his page you'll see a new pix of what he looks like in the comics and it's pretty much what the description above sounds like...grey skin with scars and he still has the red lips...looks awesome to me

I really do like the way Mr Christopher Nolan is taking care of Batman. See he's changing joker a little bit but making him look so much better. I cant wait to see this!

Morrison's Joker?

Kind of sounds like the look may be a little like how Grant Morrison just recently changed up the character. It works because the Joker was extremely nightmarish in that book.

Joke is on them

I think this is a great move for this movie, and probably the only move, considering how iconic Nicholson's Joker was and continues to be. To do a 180 on the character is the best and most creatively rewarding way to go. Like The Killing Joke, which , if you haven't read, is one of the best Batman comic novels ever written.

"The Joker will have gray skin with scarring."

Like I said on IMDb, I'm taking for granted it will be light gray.

"The Joker's costume will be raggedy (This may confirm the info BOF got a long while ago saying that his costume will look as if it was something he put together one piece at a time)"

This is where it starts to sound a little weird. Raggedy? Why not the trench coat from Batman: Arkham Asylum? It's not the final design, so we just have to wait and see.

Hopefully...

This will make us forget the ultimate suck that was the Burton and Schumacher BATMAN films altogether. So far BB has been the best of the Batman films by such a WIDE margin, it's not even funny, but BB may be the best Comic Adaptation of all time. And TDK is really starting to look like it may even be better than BB...

AWESOME

I am so happy they are going with a sinister Joker. The one thing that always bothered me with Jack Nicholson's Joker was that he was more clown than psychopath. The Prince music didn't help that out either though.
