Empire magazine's January 2008 cover features Heath Ledger as The Joker.
And Ledger's Joker looks like a really bad man!!! If DC and Warner Brothers were going for a darker, grittier Batman (as evidenced by "Batman Begins"), this is gonna cinch the deal.
And I love it!!! Of all the comic book characters that should be embracing the seedy underworld, it should be the Dark Knight.
July 18th doesn't seem all far off...
