    This is a thread to discuss and praise Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight. Compare him to past incarnations and just generally praise how he has revolutionized the role for the next generation of fanboys. :hoboj:




    Update 1/22/08: This is also a celebration of the life of this promising young actor. A young man who was taken from this earth far too soon.

    Such a pleasure to post in this thread. I can't believe how lucky we all are. Heath has created a monster. I love the voice, the mannerisms, everything!

    I didn't think any lines came across as cheesey. When he says 'like me', it reminds me of BTAS for some reason. I'm so pumped now.

    Christmas came early :up: Thank you Heath Ledger. :hoboj:

    Heath has created the Joker to be someone who could actually be real. Truly psychotic and mad. "Finally the flesh reflects the madness within"

    His body language, speech, everything is frightening about this monster Heath and Nolan have created.

    Safe to say, Heath has carved a smile into my face.

    To everyone who doesnt like it.

    WHY SO SERIOUS?

    hmm. that's a tough one doom. i love when he looks up when we first see him. and he smacks his lips and slowly blinks as if to say "you done?"

    but every time i hear him say "like me" i giggle like a girl ^^

    I like it when hes talking to rachel. He licks his lips as he walks towards her menacingly with his kniife. "I like that"

    That's a really hard question to answer. I love how he seems to be ripping the p;ss outta Bats: 'You're a freak -- like me.'

    All of it. Everything. Every damn thing he says is so amazing. I can't pick.

    Fave part?
    So many to choose from!
    Okay...
    1. Joker firing the machine gun
    2. Joker with that lizardish look where he slowly closes and opens his eyes
    3. "WHY SO SERIOUS?!"
    4. His little talk with Rachel
    5. How he sits so peacefully whilst everyone is looking at him
    He is spectacular. You know, I was so expecting Nolan to cast Johnny Depp in the role and when Ledger was announced I was somewhat shocked. But soon I realised the genius of the move. It came from NOWHERE and he's just been vindicated. So, for those of us who said "give him a chance" and "don't judge him yet" in the face of unfair criticism...well, let's give ourselves a great big pat on the back. God only knows what I went through on IMDB, trying to stop all the "LEdger iste h Gay" nonsense. But now we've been proven right. I am hoping this movie is a critical success. I want this role to live on for years and years and years. I want the camp version of the character discredited for good. This is The Joker of Arkham Asylum and The Dark Knight Returns. This is The Joker as he appears in the best stories. This is The Joker we always wanted to see. And I couldn't be happier! :cwink:
