In this week’s Ketchup, Michael Caine lauds Heath Ledger‘s performance (as well as that of his dwarves) in The Dark Knight, the next Terminator film gets its title, and rumors that the video game adaptation Hitman may be undergoing the family-friendly makeover by Fox. Also, the Justice League of America plot is released, and Warner Bros. issues a quick denial regarding their alleged “no more female-led movies” decree.
