Hot on the heels of Empire’s first look at Heath Ledger as the Joker, come six new promo photos of Batman and his archnemisis. It’s nothing spoilerific, but they do offer a new glimpse of the subtle changes made to the batsuit and also to the Joker’s overall posture and costume.
We won’t show you all of them, as you can get the sense of the photos from just a few of them. There is a fine line between being psychotically humorous and comically. Looking back at Jack Nicholson’s Joker, well it’s clear they were going for pure cartoonish comics, whereas here, I think Nolan and Ledger both want the Joker to be seen as something of a nightmare. And in an odd way, I think that this Joker is reminiscent of the Joker from Batman: The Animated Series.
The photos come via AICN.
And just in case you missed The Today Show on Friday, and with Al Roker, Meredith Viera and that other dude who dresses real nice, the jolly one was on the set of The Dark Knight. But that’s after the jump.
