Ledger's New Joker to Be Scrappy and Scary

by | April 18, 2007 | Comments

If you were hoping for a Jack Nicholson-style Joker in Christopher Nolan‘s "The Dark Knight," then you might be disappointed by the adjectives being used to describe the new character design. Words like "raggedy" and "scary."

Apparently Warner Bros. will release a character photo this summer, just to prevent against lame "spy pics" from hitting the ‘net, but for now all we know is that Heath Ledger‘s Joker will be "scary," "raggedy," and "will have grey skin with lots of scarring." So clearly this is not the broad and campy Joker we’re generally familiar with.

And I think it’s a pretty cool idea. Nolan made that freaky Scarecrow villain all sorts of creepy, and that tone worked pretty damn well in "Batman Begins." Clearly I’m not alone in that opinion.
