Steely, my friend Nate informs me that the redhead in question is someone called Batwoman. He says she was in '52'. I read that, and seem to have a faint recollection of the character. Looks like Harvey wants to be the Bat as well, and that could be Azrael in front of him, with Damian and, uh- Dick Grayson(?) to the side. The cast is getting out of hand again; where's Ace the Bat-Hound?

Thanks for that Hyde, but Babs is coming back quite possibly as Batgirl or the "new" Batwoman ...maybe, or not.! As in...

Barbara will pay the ultimate price? I don't like the sound of that. Hasn't the poor girl been through enough already? And how does the Joker keep pulling this stuff without repercussions? I should think Ghandi would be screaming for his blood by now. Ace the Bat-Hound would have torn the bastard's throat out a long time ago.

I must be the last person in the known universe, but I finally watched the two movies back to back, and was hooked.
Nicely explained back story, just enough fight scenes to push it along. A little bit too much gadgetry for me. At 1 stage I expected Q to come in and say something. BAT VISION to see into a building????
The joker was excellent. the defining scenes were him twisting Dents mind, and when only part of the hospital blew up. But, and this might cause some interest I hope....
There is no doubt Ledger would have been nominated for an oscar, but would he have won it if he was still alive???
I think we could say he probably will win, but hopefully for the right reason.
And I still rate Nicholson as up there with Ledger, as the joker.

And one final question which could certainly be answered by someone who sadly cannot now....
How did the joker gets his Split face. in the film he gave two reasons, his father and himself. which one is right????

I hated Nicholson as the Joker. By the time of The Shining, Nicholson could only play himself---and by the time of Batman, it was even worse. The same character---Jack Nicholson. IMO.

I personally think that neither of those was the truth....

Ok, i concede that from the Shining, to Cuckoo Nest, he did play the same character, but what a character.

Also, forgot to ask...
Any body heard the rumour that Johnny Depp might be up to play The Joker, or the next villian.
I know Nolan said he wouldn't do the joker again. But this is Hollywood.
And money talks.

And to re release The Dark Knight in cinema's, for the 'OSCAR'S', and not for the money, Please....

My twopence worth

I've been following the 'rumor mill' and those in the know have shot down all casting rumors save for Rachel Weisz as Catwoman. That's not to say it's 100% true as the story is just now being worked on, but Catwoman is the kind of real world character that could work in Nolan's Bat-world. Personally, I think we've seen enough Catwoman, but Nolan is batting a thousand so who knows.

Money isn't everything. Christopher Nolan wants to make movies. At this point the studios need him more than he needs them so he's holding the cards and will decide what happens next. I think it's safe to say that re-casting the Joker would be akin to re-casting Indiana Jones. It just isn't likely nor would it go down well with the public at large. You might even say that such an attempt could sink the next film just when it looks like this new series is about to become even bigger. In the end it will be Nolan's name on the credits and it's more than obvious that he cares about the final product.

Re-releasing the film because of the Academy Awards nominations is smart. It helps to reinforce the strength and legs of the film while giving people a chance to see it on the big screen again. If it's on IMAX screens as well, which I think it will be, then I'll be going back again. I had no chance to see the huge screen version and had to settle for the big screen treatment. ;)

As for Nicholson he did seem to play the same character again and again. His early films such as the Shining and One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest are pretty special films, while later movies seemed to show him as a typecast actor doing what the studios expected him to do. It is because of this that a film such as 'As Good As It Gets' is more than welcome.

I think Simon would have gotten a good laff out of this:

Mbwun,

I'm laffing too.

With the high price of web silk, perhaps Spider-man now uses a window washer's scaffold?

Good news for Superman. Low commodity prices have killed the drive to uncover new sources of Kryptonite.
