    As long as it's in the same style as batman begins i'll like it. If they make it into jokey cartoon kiddie crap then they'll have ruined it.

    Should be interesting, especially if they do what they claim and make the Joker more in line with his depiction in things like 'The Killing Joke'. I've got seriously high hopes for this one, as Batman Begins was the best Batman film in years.

    He definitely looks the part...

    Wonder if they're going to introduce Talia as well, given that they had Ra's Al Ghul in the last film...

    :agreed: The Christian Bale batmans totally fucking destroy the old ones. I liked the first one with Michael Keaton, but the rest were just terrible.

    :agreed: The first Tim Burton film is an indiputable classic. Batman Returns wasn't bad, but the following two were god-awful, especially Batman and Robin, which sucked in every possible way.

    While I liked Batman Begins, they should have just skipped the Joker and moved onto a different villain. How can anyone possibly hope to top Jack Nicholson's Joker?

    Come to think of it, the Batman movies had several really good villains, but horrible story lines. Tommy Lee Jones played such an absolutely demented Two Face. Jim Carry was such and obvious choice for The Riddler. Michelle Pfieffer in that cat suit, coyly saying, "meow" before th building blew up behind her was pure brilliance.

    So far, I've hated pretty much every single actor they've gotten to play Bruce Wayne. They all were lacking.

    Actually, I thought Two-Face and Riddler were two of the major problems in Batman Forever, as they reduced them both to a bunch of cheesy gimmicks and catchphrases rather than making them genuinely demented and threatening as all the better interpretations have.
    Michelle Pfeifer was a great Catwomen though.

    That is the fault of the script, which I thought was sorely lacking. If you can set the script aside and focus on the characters they were playing, they nailed them perfectly.

    Yep. Christian Bale was the best.

    Heath doesn't even look like Heath there. Interesting. If they go more the Dark Knight, Frank Miller type Batman, I'm in. Batman Begins was pretty damn good.

    I also agree with everyone else pretty much. The first Batman, aside from the HORRID casting of Michael Keaton as Batman although, acting-wise, he was acceptable. Just not Bruce Wayne material, IMO, as a long-time Batman comic reader) was pretty darn good. Tim Burton = the man. The rest? Ugh. Aside from excellent villains generally, were rubbish.

    That isn't Heath Ledger though.

    It's Conrad Veidt, and old silent movie star, most known for The Cabinet Of Dr. Caligari:

    See?

    The picture you posted there Chris is a photoshop someone on imdb.com did to show what they thought the Joker should look like. Seems like the picture has been distrobuted as something official from the production. It isn't.
