Oh Dear. The comic book fans are going to execute this. Unless Frank Miller's name turns up somewhere in the credits.

was really hoping the early romours of Sean Penn playing the joker would come to pass... he would have been my choice :)

Sean Penn would have been too old...the characters in this Batman series are all a lot younger...but Heath Ledger...what are they thinking?????

I still think Adrien Brody would have been the best, but I assume that Christopher Nolan knows what he's doing!

Heath Ledger is an intersting choice, but i'll put my confidence in Nolan to make another great film. :lesson:

As said above Ledger has the Joker smile already and we know he can act (Monsters Ball & Brokeback Mountain) lets just see if he can do the bad guy thing! I'm assuming Nolan must have done some sort of screen test with him etc??

Well he certainly has a lot to live up to after Nicholson! :thumbsup:

Oh well...no Crispin Glover then. If I'm honest I never really believed he would get the part (although I still think he could have been great) but I'm not completely sold on Heath Ledger. Not a huge fan of his, but I'll reserve judgment until I see the film. I do have faith in Nolan to make the right choices for the next movie - the casting in Begins was pretty spot on I thought with Katie Holmes being the weak link, but I didn't think she was that bad.

Now I wonder if Harvey Dent will feature in the second film as Goyer has hinted at in the past? Who would be right for Dent then guys?

He was mentioned somewhere as a possible for The Joker, but I think that Alexis Denisoff(Wesley in Buffy/Angel) would be a choice from left field.

slightly upset that ledger will be joker,hopefully the screen tests will be crap and they'll change their minds and put Crispin Glover into the role.

I've heard that Ryan Phillipe is in the running for the role of Dent but even more worrying for this film I think is that Batmon on film keep re-iterating the fact that this film will feature multiple villans...namely Penguin who (if Nolan gets his way) is likely to be played by Philip Seymour Hoffman

I'm not looking forward to a multiple villan movie to be honest.

I'd prefer to just have a movie dedicated to Batman V Joker so much scope for a really great film if written properly with just one villan.

agree 100% with you, too many villans will drown batman out which is a very bad move.....bloody toys and tie in spoil some films

God, I hope not. He's too much of a pretty boy to me to be Dent. Yes the character should be of presentable appearance but Phillipe is a good 5 years too young(he's 32 btw). The District Attorney needs to be someone in their late 30's early 40's, a similar age to Gordon.

Alexis Denisof is 40, y'see he's the right age:D .

If they go down the same naff multiple villian route as Batman Fever & Batman & Robin, I agree wholeheartedly, but don't forget that Batman Begins technically had 3 villians: Scarecrow, Ra's Al Ghul & crime boss Falcone.

Hopefully, if they go with The Penguin, he'll be closer to the recent comics crimelord type figure & less of the Tim Burton 'freak from the sewers'.

Well from what I've read Penguin will be more of a Crime Boss/Weapons Trader than the Burton mould which would be better.

If done properly it could work but I'm not convinced, whereas in Begins each criminal was small time really & pretty dependent to the story of Wayne becoming Bats.
However from a comic/fans point of view in this movie both villans would be quite big & require a huge chunk of screentime for back story/development which wasnt really required for the villans from the first (except Ra's anyway) so to squeeze that all in for a 2hr film will probably ruin it :(

oh i dont know... sure they could have done something to make Penn look younger..and he would have been totally bad ass. are they ignoring the timelines in the other batman films altogether? i have a question re begins... in Batman with keaton and all, the joker killed bruces parents...or am i just dreaming that? i'm not that famillar with the comics but who killed them in the comics?

cheers,

Tim Burton pretty much made up that the Joker killed Bruce's parents.

Batman Begins is more true to the comics in that it was just some random thug that did the deed

Well I personally think that Ledger will make a great Joker. With the right make-up I can really imagine him as the Joker, he already kind of has the smile. Also after watching him in Brokeback he has the acting range to do the role justice. Good casting imo.
