article imageThe Joker Goes Unchanged

By KJ Mullins     Mar 15, 2008 in Entertainment
Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker in the upcoming Dark Knight movie will not be changed. No vats of chemicals will transform the criminal mind of the character, like in other productions.
"I believe whatever doesn't kill you simply makes you stranger," Ledger's depraved Joker cryptically tells an accomplice in the opening scenes, in which he pulls off a daring bank robbery.
The Dark Knight will be a darker version of the famous Batman story. Even before Ledger's unforeseen death the marketing wizards behind the movie had focused on the villain's side of the story.
It was thought that the marketing would not focus on Ledger in light of his demise but the marketing has not changed according to Warner Bros.
When Ledger had a chance to view the movie it's said that he was blown away by his own performance.
"He was just blown away by his own performance," Roven said. "He said, `Can I see it again?' So he was really, really thrilled."
The movie is expected to be a summer blockbuster. It will be in theaters July 18.
