Post the approach you would have taken for Ledger's Joker in TDK. What similar and different decisions would you make compared to Nolan's? 1)Costume. -The Joker's suit in TDK is perfect. I wouldn't make any changes. 2)Skin. -The Joker's skin would be permanently white. It would completely lack pigmentation of any kind. I imagination his skin would look something similar to Vitiligo victims, only it affects his whole body and not in patches. Also, I would never explain WHY The Joker has skin like this. What is a chemical bath? Is it a genetic defect? Leave it up to the audience's imagination. http://www.vitiligo-verein.de/presse/bilder/DermAllegra_1.jpg 3)Hair. -His hair would be permanently dyed green. I would use the same shade Nolan used, but his hair would be completely one color. He also dyes his eyebrows the same color. We never find out what natural hair color The Joker used to have, if it had color at all. Also, his hair would be pushed back for the most part, and would only get messy in appropriate situations (fight scenes, car chases, etc. etc.). 4)Lips. -Like in "The Dark Knight Returns," The Joker's lips would lack pigmentation, like the rest of his skin. To complete his clown image, he would apply a deep red lipstick. 5)Eye shadow. -I personally like the black makeup around The Joker's eyes in TDK. I would also use this in my version. 6)Carved smile. -I wouldn't have one, or anything that would give The Joker a permanent smile. Heath has a great natural smile as it is, and I'd want The Joker to show a full range of emotions.
