I know this probably isn't the proper forum, but it gets the most attention currently so: Question for all of you bat-fanatics...

Can anyone tell me where exactly the artwork for the Batman Begins Joker card came from? It's not from "Arkham Asylum" like IMDB claims. It seems to me that I had seen it somewhere before Begins. Anyone? Thanks in advance!

Cheers!
 
well u should find a pic of it and post it up
 
here it is
jokercard2yk.jpg

but no ideas for me
 
while we're talking about that scene

does any one else get the impression that gordon and bats do not take the joker case seriously at that point in time ?
 
I still like that card, I hope this is his main card

i don't know. i mean, it was a double homicide.

in a way maybe when he says "a taste for the theatrical like you" but he still says double homcide which probably makes batman put on his serious hat

idk it's in the way gordon says the line and his expression
batman just says "I'll look into it" it doesn't sound like a big threat to ethier of them
 
this thread'll get closed in no time, hurry & find the artwork! lol

Why would it be a big threat to them? There's murders in Gotham all the time. The City is full of corruption.

Why should this double homicide cause them any particular concern?
 
yea i guess he wasnt really supposed to say it like "oh my god! ill look into it!" (jumps off roof before final line)

I've gotten the impression that the Joker just escalates over TDK into the crazy mass murdering clown with zero empathy that we know and love...so the short answer is no...i do not think they take it lightly because gordon trusts him and isnt nervous about it...just like the last part of Year One

Well, consider what they just went through in that movie. They are serious about the crime, but after what happened, I would imagine a double homicide is just small potatoes. More of a nuisance.

Yeah exactly
 
You know what!? I am going to watch BB right now...and do you know why? because i can!

that's exactly my point
by the end of bb joker is not the big threat to gotham
like someone else said double homicide is small fry compared to say destroying a city through fear

tdk according to nolan is the rise of the joker

my theory holds water in that respect
 
Thanks for some of the replies guys. I know this is kind of trivial, but I need the answer for a specific reason....

Anyways, any luck on where the card came from? Seems to me that it is an old school piece of art work. Maybe it originally came from something OTHER than a card.

Actually, if you run the audio from that final scene through a hard limiter, you can make out subtleties in the dialogue that you might otherwise miss.

For example, after Gordon cites this "Joker" as an example to support his somewhat dubious psycho-social theory of "escalation", Batman assures him that "I'll look into it....". And yet, just before jumping off of the roof of the GDP, you can barely hear Batman add: "Whatever, jackass."
