Christopher Nolan Hints About "Joker" Approach

by | August 24, 2006 | Comments

Blogger / humorous journalist / serious movie geek Josh Horowitz recently had a sit-down with "Batman Begins" director Christopher Nolan in order to get some info on the filmmaker’s next project, "The Prestige" … but you just know that "The Dark Knight" (aka "Batman Begins 2") was going to come up at some point. And it did.

From Horowitz’s Better Than Fudge blog: "Horowitz: Is there anything to be inferred from the name you’ve chosen for this film, "The Dark Knight"?
Nolan: Ultimately yes. [Laughs] But I’ll leave that for people to infer.

Horowitz: This is the cryptic portion of our chat.
Nolan: Yeah. [Laughs] The title has been chosen very specifically. It’s quite important to the film.

Horowitz: I take it [the Joker] will be less Cesar Romero and Jack Nicholson than the Joker we saw portrayed in a comic like "The Killing Joke"?
Nolan: Yes. I would certainly point to "The Killing Joke" but I also would point very much to the first two appearances of the Joker in the comic. If you look at where the Joker comes from there’s a very clear direction that fits what we’re doing very well."
