Default Re: The IRON MAN 3 News & Speculation Thread - Part 10

A few people have expressed the opinion that Ben Kingsley's voice in the trailer sounds like Heath Ledger's Joker. That is so far from the truth that it's as if they never actually heard Ledger speak in TDK. The following video compares Ledger's Joker voice to Tom Waits' speaking voice in an interview that aired on Australian TV in the 1970s. I defy anyone to listen to that and still claim that Kingsley sounds anything like Ledger.

It’s something that’s easy to take for granted, growing up in the United States as a white male, that my cinematic heroes look like me...It’s something that over the course of these ten years, having a certain amount of power over what type of movies are made and what type of actors we hire, I want everybody to have that feeling. We don’t take it for granted that people want to see themselves reflected in our heroes and our characters.
