Batman: The Dark Knight.

So, according to Cinematical (and countless other film blogs this week), the next Batman movie will be called The Dark Knight and will star Heath Ledger as the Joker.

Heath Ledger. The Joker. Well, somebody's sure joking around. I dunno – seeing Ledger play a villain would be kind of cool, but I'm not sure the guy has what it takes to pull off the Crown Prince of Crime. So far word on the street is that Nolan is going super-dark with his Joker, which is good, but Heath flippin' Ledger? How not-dark can you get? The guy's a good actor, sure, but the darkest I've ever seen him was in The Order, which was a great movie but didn't really make me tremble at his darkness. Meh. We'll see.

Whatever. Let the Brokebat Mountain jokes begin!


He was tragic and very dark in Monster's Ball.
