Not Eager So Far...

From m0nkeygrl: Dark Knight Teaser II. Very wary of this Joker portrayal. The Joker needs to skim a very fine line between "completely absurd" and "WTF scary" -- this movie seems to be going for "Jack the Ripper meets Cirque de Soliel," which is 99.5% wrong. Really, if done well, the Joker should be somebody who would almost be fun to hang out with, if it weren't for the fact that he keeps killing people.

I also notice Two-Face showing up at the end. Wonder what that's about. Lead-in to Movie III, perhaps.

EDIT: Nevermind, it was a fake. The pic released of Heath Ledger before was real enough, I'm sad to say. Still looks wrong.

Just between you and I, I never really saw the appeal of the 80s/90s Batman movies. I always thought that they just took the camp of the 60s and threw some eye liner and goth hair styles on it.

That aside, I do agree. I'm dubious as well, but considering the fact that Nolan has shown that he is more then willing to give the story a serious approach, I'm a bit more complacent then most would be.

Did you even watch the first two? Joel Schumacher did exactly what you described with the last two Batman movies he directed, and basically ruined the franchise. But I have to disagree with you on the first two Burton-directed movies. No 60's camp there, just some good twisted dark humor, especially in Batman Returns.

I have seen them all, and while I like the Burton versions, they're still full of cheese. The only difference is the fact that its slightly darker cheese.

And everything aside, theres no need to get militant. After all, they're just words on a screen representing one person's opinion.
