New Joker Photo From Dark Knight is Gross and Creepy

After the whole debacle with a false photograph of The Joker from the next Batman movie The Dark Knight, real photographs of The Joker have been in high demand. Well, now there's a new, real photo of Heath Ledger as The Joker.

When did the Batman movies get so dark and gruesome? The Joker of my youth was played by Jack Nicholson (creepy in his own right, certainly) and he was spooky in that cartoonish, clown-gone-mad kind of way. This time around, Joker looks scary-gross. You've been warned, but to view the photo,

Creepy and gross as it may be, I still can't understand why Heath Ledger is playing the Joker. Maybe he's trying to get out of his typical roles, but man this was a stretch! lol. I just can't imagine him playing The Joker! I LOVED Jack Nicholson as The Joker! He was creepy in that clown-gone-mad way like you said, which perfectly fit the character AND Jack. And I don't want them to rework The Penguin's character! I loved Danny DeVito as him too lol.

Personally, Christian Bale has been the best and probably the most accurate Batman as well. Can't wait for this one!

I like it personally. The Batman series with Bale is the best of all the ones I have seen and I think the whole "creepy" twisted Joker makes more sense instead of the cartoon-clownish version. Batman is supposed to be a dark character - not a superhero with special powers.

He looks so creepy!! Micheal Keaton and Jack Nicholson were the best Batman and Joker to me, but I would like to see how Heath handles it.

They should make The Joker more cartoon and less cannibal.

Wow, that is amazing. I can't wait for the new one to come out. I liked the old Batman series, but this new one is fantastic, and a lot truer to the comics. My boyfriend is going to be so happy when he sees this photo.

Awesome. I agree, I LOVE the new Batman! Christopher Noland does a perfect job translating comic book into film and Christian Bale is really good as Bruce Wayne. I was already freaked out by Scarecrow, I can't wait to see what kind of madness will be brought with Joker. And, I can't wait to see all the reworked villains - Riddler, Poison Ivy, Catwoman, Two-Face, Penguin, Mr. Freeze, - as well as the ones we haven't seen in a motion picture - The Mad Hatter, Man-Bat, Ventriloquist, etc.

I really like this look, they had to get away from the cartoonish, Nicolson-esque makeup for it to work for Heath.

I thought the Batman with Jack Nicholson WAS scary, but I was like 12 years old when it came out. Kim Basinger kicked butt in that movie.

The batman villains freak me out anyhow, and this is no exception. Although, I agree that the whole idea is that he's supposed to be this twisted, creepy character. So it works.

Not really sure how I feel about it, but it's definitely creepy! But then, he is in the comics as well...
