    Default Heath Ledger to play The Joker in ''Batman Begins'' sequel

    LEDGER TO PLAY THE JOKER

    Last updated: Monday, July 24, 2006

    Heath Ledger is set to play The Joker in the ''Batman Begins'' sequel.

    The Australian actor was apparently officially offered the much sought after role on Wednesday (July 18, 2006).

    Website LatinoReview.com revealed the news, their site reads: "We were first to tell the world that Brandon Routh was going to be the new Superman."

    "Now here we are at it again as we just got word from a very trusted source that the offer was officially made to Heath Ledger to star as The Joker in the 'Batman Begins' sequel!"

    The "Brokeback Mountain" star is the latest in a long line of respected actors to be linked to the role.

    Robin Williams was reportedly desperate to land the part, British actor Paul Bettany was said to be in "talks," and "Reservoir Dogs" star Steve Buscemi was also rumored to be on the shortlist.

    The film is due to be released in 2008 and the Joker - played by Jack Nicholson in the original "Batman" movie in 1989 - will feature as the main villain.

    Screenwriter David Goyer revealed: "Batman will enlist the aid of Police Commissioner Gordon and Harvey Dent in bringing down the Joker... but not killing him."

    "In the third movie, the Joker would go on trial scarring Dent in the process."

    If Ledger accepts the part, he will join Christian Bale - who plays the Caped Crusader - Michael Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman, who are all reprising their roles.

    Heath's got to be a little nervous. After Nicholson's portrayal, those are some pretty big clown shoes to fill.

    She pretty much ruined Batman Begins publicity with the Tom Thumb crap!

    Heath Ledger- as the Joker? I'm not so sure I like that. I just can't picture him... then again, he was kind of funny in some of his movies... and since the movie takes place before the first original Batman, it makes sense to cast a younger Joker. Much better than Robin Williams, anyway- he looks and acts the same in all of his movies.

    True that! Nicholson was the perfect choice for that role back then.

    Wow, a former Jack Nicholson role - this will be a hard role to do! Jack rocked it too! If he can pull this off his career will flourish into full fledged star.

    I have to wonder if they are going to go for a darker/edgier Joker - not so dapper in a purple suit. It would be a mistake to try to remake Nicholson's Joker - it would come off as a parody at best.

    Maybe something more like this:

    Post Heath Ledger as the Joker

    The follow-up to Batman Begins will be titled, The Dark Knight. The Joker will make a return for this one, and this time he'll be played by Heath Ledger (yes, the Brokeback Mountain guy.)

    The Dark Knight starts shooting next year and is set for release in summer 2008.
