Joker spy pics

07.15.2007
It's been a while since I wrote a DARK KNIGHT story, and I'm feeling it. I can't sleep at night because it feels like my tongue is made of flames and red ants are crawling just underneath my skin, so writing this story now feels pretty incredible. The first on set spy photos of Heath Ledger as The Joker have made it online. The photos aren't of the grandest quality, but that's what makes them so delicious, the spy factor. It's hard to tell what kind of outfit he's wearing but it's certainly lost all the flash of Jack's biright purple suits. But his hair looks greasy and dead, the way it should look. Click HERE to check them out. Damn, that felt good. Thanks to Paul for the heads up.

Extra Tidbit: I'm officially challenging all the other Joblo.com news editors to see who can write the most DARK KNIGHT stories, from now until the film's release. The winner gets a free meal at Mendy's. Their soup is the best in the city, the best!

I saw this pic on another site a second ago, and suddenly i'm really digging how he looks. He looks really creepy and evil, it's weird how it went from "hmmm" to "hell yes awesome"

Now if only his performance can come through. I haven't actually seen him in anything. The movie with Ledger and Mel Gibson was on the other day, and I kept turning back to it so i could hear his voice, but i never saw a scene where he spoke.

Surrounded by fools

The franchise definitely is about more than just The Joker. However, he's probably the most iconic villain of all time, so if you screw him up, it pretty much affects the whole film.

Acerbus III

Acerbus III your right, this franchise has more to it than the Joker, he's a part of the film, but the films are about Batman and Nolan has done it better than anyone. Unfortuantly, if the Joker happens to not hit the right key with fans, they will ignore the quality of the film and claim it's horrible. So, while the movie is more than the Joker, most people won't see it that way...

Alright

Liam and Cillian as Ra's Al Ghul and Scarecrow respectively didn't look exactly like their comic counterparts. But pretty close. That's my point. Pictures I've seen of Heath as The Joker doesn't resemble the character at all.

This is old news, but what the hell; some people still don't get it, do they... the cut smile, the smeared lipstick and now the bum hair. The Joker never had that appearance in any comic.

His fucking name is ERIC DRAVEN.

As to the Joker, his hair should be slicked back or something..either way, i can't wait to see him in action. Alot of it depends on his expressions to me. As long as he can pull of insane laughs and smiles, then hell yeah. With the teaser debuting in two weeks, I hope that whole "See you in December" jazz doesn't mean he won't be in the teaser AT ALL :(

Edit: Anyone else seen this?

WHO KNOWS

that could be a stunt double for all we know. We just have not seen enough yet to make any sort of real judgement. Ledger might pull it off...he might not. I don't think the success of the franchise hinges on the Joker being "perfect". This franchise has a helluva lot going for it and this is not the end all be all.

Yup, he definitely looks like he's auditioning for the next "Crow" movie. Really hope they don't f*ck this up.

He's creepy! I'm trusting Nolan that he will make another great movie.

"his hair looks greasy and dead, the way it should look."???

I keep reading stuff like this, do you people even read the comics or is this just your idea of what an evil clown should look like? The Joker of the comics has a bit of class to him, hes not sloppy or that grungy.

I like it. Not the very best they could have done, but if they camp him up just a tad more than he looks, and give him a few relatively garish outfits, I think it'll work. It all really hinges on Ledger's acting.

Does anyone else think the Joker is in disguise? It kind of looks like he's wearing some sort of security outfit.

But other than that, I LOVE IT! I just can't wait to see how Ledger actually handles the character. After all, it's not the looks alone that will pull it off.

Okay, the looks do help.

Meh.

Once again, I'll have to remind myself to wait until he's in action before I can pass judgement. I don't like the look of him in anything I've seen thus far, so, that sucks. But it is, perhaps, possible that the performance will make the look. So, we'll have to wait and see.

Yeah, him too. It's not a good thing because The Crow is one character. The Joker another.

Yay... I guess

That's The Joker? It was hard to tell due to the Aragorn hair style and unfortunately this time around also, the Ike Broflovski smile.
