I really hope there is too. I'd love if they did something for the 10th anniversary, but I won't hold my breath.

And while we're at it, I'd love if they ran a trilogy marathon in IMAX at some point. I'm lucky enough to have seen all the films individually in IMAX (even though it's just a blown up print for Begins), but looking back I kind of regret not doing the trilogy marathon on opening night. I thought it'd be too much and wear me out, but from what I've heard it really added to the experience.

I regret it too. I was a stupid idiot.

That guy in the hat can do a spot on Ledger-Joker impression.

Oh you know, just the usual heart-breaking stuff. How The Joker was the most fun he ever had playing a character, how he never had so much confidence in a role before, how crew members would go out of their way to watch what he was doing on set.

Also, because the lip prosthetic went into Heath's mouth, the glue would often come loose. Instead of having to go get it re-applied and wasting twenty minutes at a time, Heath wet the prosthetic back down with his tongue, which he turned into a character quirk with the lip-licking.

He’s very anarchic and yet somehow has great charisma, both in the book and in the film. We talked about a lot of different influences, and he talked about an extraordinarily diverse set of influences like ventriloquist dummies. The way they would talk and the way they would move and all kinds of peculiar ideas that I wasn’t really able to get a handle on until I saw him start to perform the scenes, and start to show how the character moved and how the character gestured and how the character spoke, with this extraordinarily unpredictable voice. The range of the voice, from its highest pitch to its lowest pitch, is very extreme, and where it shifts is unpredictable and sudden. The thing with the tongue was…he had this prosthetic that was covering his lower lip and it would come unglued sometimes. I’d seen him sort of sticking it back with his tongue, and it was only after a few weeks of shooting that I realized that wasn’t what he was doing, that he had started to adopt that actually as part of the character. It was an interesting balance, editing the performance, because he has all kinds of interesting facets, all kinds of mannerisms and things. What I like about them all is they all feel that they come from the character. They don’t feel like actorly touches. I read them as genuinely part of the fabric of a real human being.

Ledger's Joker can still pull in the votes;

The Ringer just ranked all villains in comic films;

Ledger’s Joker #1, and everyone one else #2-_______.

So wonderful and true.

It still breaks my heart that he never got a chance to see the response to his work in this film.
