    Sat down with a person from the, we'll call it, "the TDK experience" in Chicago this summer who was privy to a major action sequence.

    They also confirmed something that was until now, a rumor...

    Firstly, the rumor that the Joker is disguised as a nurse is indeed true, as the sky is blue in the heart of summer. Not only is Joker disguised as a nurse, he's disguised as a female nurse with lipstick and everything else. Joker was described as a real horror show image. It will be sick and feel wrong. This incarnation of the Joker is so far from kid friendly! Me likey!

    The Joker sets the bomb but the police are able to evacuate the building before it goes KABOOM! The sequence was described as beyond massive.

    Next, and this is f-ing cool, the Youtube video that many of us saw of 4 guys simultaneously scaling a building in Downtown Gotham in the daytime, was actually a practice run for a reportedly extremely dangerous stunt.

    The4 guys weren't scaling the building... they were thrown out the building window by a very angry Batman!

    It's a huge fight sequence between the Dark Knight and 4 Joker Clown Goons. Batman quickly ties the four goons with his high-tensile rope and throws goon one out the window, who then pulls the other three goons out with HIM!!!

    Batman leaves the 4 goons hanging on the side of the building to be arrested by a certain Lieutenant Gordon.

    Now, the stunt was described as ridiculously dangerous because if the first goon fell out of the building at the wrong speed (as in too fast!), he would inadvertedly rip apart the other three falling goons like a wishbone. That was the term used by the tipster-- the stuntman could've been ripped apart like a friggin' wishbone!!!

    Luckily the scene came off flawlessly and needless to say it looks spectacular and it's real. No crappy CGI stunt-doubles for Mr. Nolan.

    Finally, the Joker sends creepy video recordings of himself to the news (much Like Osama's tapes) and these are broadcast on the evening news for all of Gotham's citizens to see. The Joker's goal is to destroy Gotham and bring Batman to his knees.

    Those in the know feel that Nolan is seriously flirting with a masterpiece in the comic book to film genre. I for one don't doubt it. Nolan's interpretation of the Joker combines a high-functioning sociopath who will by film's end become the ring-leader for the broken-minded denizens of Gotham's underworld!

    That's all for now.

    The TDK poster got delayed but I was told it got printed on the 31st of October and ready to be shipped and hanging on theatre walls for the end of november. Somehow, it must have gotten delayed...but the poster will be there before the 7 minute trailer unspools in front of Fresh Prince Legend...I just repeated what the theatre owner said about the poster...but the stuff about Nurse Joker and the stunt guys is sourced and confirmed...you can take that to the bank!

    naw doom, think more like the first appearance where he sent out radio messages saying he was going to commit crimes. or yeah, like attikus said, like osama. these scary videos from a maniac talking about the havoc he is going to wreak. very jokery :up: i like the idea of joker being kind of like a terrorist. that's pretty much what he is anyway. and i think it helps fit with the times.

    yeah. me too. very calm. very sinister. stating his plan. not hamming it up. just an evil smile. not laughing or dancing around.

    maybe once he gets more cocky and stuff he can start getting more flamboyant. but i think being more serious is much for terrifying

    BOF said the "hot dog" stunt was cancelled, with the bit in Chicago only being a practice for HK

    Heath in nurses uniform wasn't a rumor, a couple of SHH members saw it. Sounds great though

    when something is done more seriously it is way more scary for sure. i mean some element of flamboyance is ok, but when it gets soo much, you cant take the threat seriously

    yeah he did say the hot dog stunt was a HK thing. but jett isn't always right. i'm sure some stunts got cancelled in HK. but that isn't NECESSARILY one of them. could be. but i hope it's not. what attikus said sounds a lot cooler. but before the rumor was that joker did it. who cares though? we'll see eventually.

    definitely.
