    Nice. He looks sufficiently addle-pated, to say the least.

    I read where Michael Caine has really been singing the praises of Ledger's portrayal of the Joker. Here is a quote:

    “I tell you the big surprise in the new ‘Batman’ — Heath Ledger as the Joker,” Caine told reporters. “He’s fantastic. He’s gone in a different direction than Jack (Nicholson) … Jack was like a really scary old, nasty old uncle with a funny face. Heath is like the most murderous psychopath you’ve ever seen on the screen,” Caine said.
    I personally can't wait.

    The fanboy geeks are so PO'd about his make-up and his skin not being "perma-white". If thats your biggest complaint in life, you're doing alright.
    Witty signature.

    If the franchise continues, and continues in the direction it is presently heading (which I hope for in both cases), I think people are going to have to get over the fact we are not going to be seeing Batman in the Burton-esque light, or as it was seen during the '60s TV show.
    This is a darker, more realistic Batman. I, for one, really like it, fanboys be darned.

    I agree. That Joker looks like someone actually might look after a chemical accident (I'm guessing, I guess I really don't know what that would look like).

    Being of the "older generation" who was raised on the Batman (Detective comics) of the 50's/60's, it's somewhat hard for me to accept this portrayal of the Joker by Ledger because of the stereotypical comic book image that is ingrained in my mind as a boy growing up and reading the comics.

    Comic books were fun; but I don't think they really captured the true essence of what the creators were trying to portray. Maybe that was due to the times and censorship laws back then knowing their audience was kids.

    Many were upset over Burton's portrayal of Batman because it showed a "dark side" (split personality) to the character. But that's exactly how Bob Kane originally wrote the character. What do you think a person would grow up to be like as an adult who witnessed both his parents being brutally murdered? Well balanced?

    And I think you're right on Razor Shines. What would a guy look like after a chemical accident?

    I loved Batman Begins. Looking forward to this sequel.

    Maybe someday they'll give justice to Superman. I'm as avid a fan as Jerry Seinfeld. And I haven't cared for any of the Superman movies at all. They were insulting IMO.
