    Michael Keaton's "I'm Batman" > Christian Bale's

    Heath Ledger is pretty cool. I liked him in A Knight's Tale.

    lol I just can't picture Heath Ledger as the Joker right now. First doesn't he have a deep voice? How's he gonna play high pitched laughing joker? And I can't see him with a white face..

    Either way, they'll probably pull it off seeing as Batmin Begins was fantabulous.

    Heath Ledger's a very sexy guy...but after seeing Brokeback Mountain I just can't seem him taking on the role of the Joker. I mean, not because he was gay in the movie, but because his character was SO hard to understand. I really had a lot of trouble through all his mumbling, and had a similar problem when I watched A Knight's Tale (repeatedly, that movie owns.) a couple years back.

    The Joker has such a...defined voice and way of acting that doesn't really fit with what I see Heath being capable of. But hopefully he'll blow it out of the water, cause him + Christian Bale in any movie = win.

    I dunno... The Joker's supposed to be a psycopathic killer that gets pleasure out of harming others. Anyone read the Batman graphic novels? I think in one of them he took a young girl hostage, and let her scream into the phone at Batman while he ground a pencil into her eye. This is how I always imagined the Joker to be, a sadistic killer. In the cartoons and some of the other comics, he was kind of a joke, though (ironic, huh). I don't know if Heath Ledger can pull off that crazy psycopath role.
