    Basically they say what most of us expected already; that Heath was extremely proud of the work he had put into this role and would have preferred things went on as normal, and not be derailed or changed by his death.

    I'm really happy they said that...I was worried about how WB would change their plan. But now Ledger's family said that, I hope Wb will keep their marketing plan like it is supposed to be.

    It was good of his family to do this, takes the pressure off WB a bit. They seem very understanding.

    Good, I'm glad they respect what their son did in the role.

    Good to hear. Although I bet once we start getting commercials and Ledger is in it for even just a second, I'm sure there will be people claiming that WB is just trying to capitalize off of his death. And the same when the toys come out. I feel like it will be an almost no win situation. :csad:

    This is great news. I'm sure Nolan would have anyway because he and all the cast seem to realise what Heath put into this. I'm sure they want the most for his performance :up:

    Great news!

    This is the role Heath enjoyed the most in his career. Why should things change? Celebrate it. Don't hide it.

    Same here. I hope WB agree with them & continue to do what they do like Heath wasn't gone by releasing the publicity stuff & such dealing with his work as Joker.

    Those are great news! God bless Ledger family!
    But just like Mechanix1992 said: It will suck that Heath will not be present to see his magnificent performance.
    Let's hope WB continue with the campaign but with the respect that Heath deserves.
    Rest In Peace!!

    I'm sure I read this before now but it's nice to know they support the promotion of their Heath's work

    Doesn't mean much. Court of public opinion is what counts. Its unavoidable really, since anything WB does will be met with accusations of exploiting Ledger's death. But I fully expect the marketing to have changed especially in these early months which would have happened anyway regardless of what his family said.
