Depp as Mad Hatter!

Nov. 17, 2008by: Mike Sampson

Dying to know what Johnny Depp will look like as The Mad Hatter in Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND? Well wait no longer! A Johnny Depp fansite has come across a pic of Depp in character as Mad Hatter and posted it online. To be clear it looks more like production art rather than a photograph (especially considering his performance is mo-cap with that ping-pong ball covered blue suit and all). I won't ruin it here but suffice to say, it looks nothing like this guy and looks pretty much like a stereotypical Burton character (not that there's anything wrong with that). Click below to head to Johnny-Depp.org to check it out!

This look is a little tired. This style AGAIN? I mean, come on - it is like when Michael Jackson was on tour in the late 1990s, and he was doing all the same stuff he had been doing since Thriller. the same sorts of costumes and moves. Not progressing at all. I just feel this is "more of the same" and why can't we see a different vision, instead of the same one over and over. I know he is known for this sort of thing, but can't it move to the next step?

Stop Your Bitching!

I don't get all of the Burton/Depp Hate these days. It's not like the quality of their movies has gone down if you really think about it, yet people are tired of their partnership? Many great directors use their preferred actors over in different movies and since Burton and Depp are such good friends with each other, it's just common sense that they'd enjoy working with each other and like to do it often. Same with Burtons other usuals.

I for one enjoy Burtons current movies as much as I

I for one enjoy Burtons current movies as much as I enjoy his older movies (more-so on some of them). And so I just don't get the hate.

You claim that it's the same thing over and over. Well, they're not really. The movies may have a similar visual style to each other, but that's because its BURTONS visual style. It's what he enjoys and it's what a lot of people also enjoy. Why would you ask a director to do anything other than what is enjoyable to himself and his audience?

If you do something well stick with it. And this is just what Burton does. And he does it magnificently. Burton is a wonderful director and the entire cast is seeming more brilliant with each week that passes.

Alice in Wonderland.

Yeah.

I'll be there.

FAKE-ISH....

As much as I'd like to believe that the picture is legit, it just looks to much like a fake. It's like they were pushing the Burton-factor all over the character. Plus, I doubt Alice will be anything frightening. It'll be weird like Charlie & The Chocolate Factory. That sorta' thing. This pic reminds me of those fake Joker pics that surfaced before Ledger's Joker was officially revealed...the ones that were 'supposedly' leaked. Haha...

I don't think so

Alice in Wonderland is not meant to be scary. This looks like a fake. It's cool, but I don't think it fits.

Johnny Mad Hatter

This could very well be a photoshop pic or just a make up test, but one thing I'm sure of is that this could be what Tim is wanting the character to look like, I mean...it's very eery and freaky looking, which is what Tim always aims for, I say don't post any more pics of Deep as Madhatter untill the actual studio releases an official pic, I hate speculating on these things, but it's also kida fun, let's see if this is legit or not.

I`m definetly thinking this is fake, becase from what I understand Burton`s "Alice" isn`t going to be dark and nightmarish. I think it`s going to be more along Burton`s 'zany' side - like a more colorful "Beetlejuice".

That said, the pic looks like Robert Smith with a clown wig on.

Definitely fake. I'll wait to see what he'll really look like when, I don't know, the studio releases a picture, not a fan site.

Also agree with drzoom. This Mad Hatter belongs in Batman.

BORING

Depp and Burton partnership became that: boring. Always the same twisted view that, in the end, is always the same old, same old.

Depp looks twisted

I'm a little surprised by Burton's vision of the Mad Hatter, he looks dead and evil. I guess he'll just scare the shit out of Alice.

WTF?

I like Tim Burton and Johnny Depp as much as the next guy, but since when is the Mad Hatter a fucking zombie? Seriously, why is everything Burton does like this? I appreciate his weird artsy vision as anybody, but he's really just become a stereotype- he does the same shit over and over. Last film of his I really dug was Big Fish, and that's because it was a little different from the norm (Tim Burton's norm, that is)
