I wish he'd been able to go on to do more.

It's a shame so many of this generations greats waste their lives on drugs. :(

Both super silly clown and elemental of chaos Jokers are not my cup of tea, but then I prefer the early comic book/pulp type heroes and villains before things got so over the top.
And when shooting the bad guy was always an option.


Apparently he got started on stuff to get sleep.

Unfortunately, all I can find is a teaser about this.

I'm assuming the LOTR is going to be in the bigger 70mm scale, as to not compete with the GW licence.

The Superman also looks to be in the bigger scale. I've got several of the Marvel ones and they are incredible.

I'm most excited for the Arkham City line. 35mm will help keep the cost down (but I'm still assuming they'll be pricey).


Mark Hamill absolutely nails the Joker, especially in the Batman Video games (Arkham Asylum and Arkham City). I can't wait to see how they do with those.

No it's not. The likeness to Heath Ledger is uncanny.


Did you really think he meant the likeness to anyone but heath ledger?

Yeah, it's sad.
If I recall correctly the media set him up one time after an award ceremony, after he was clean, got him alone with hidden cameras and offered to sell him drugs and filmed it all. Bloody vultures.

And maybe we'd get to see him reprise the role.


Possibily but probably only as a brief cameo for the next one in the series.
Jonathan Crane, the Scarecrow had a cameo in the opening minutes of The Dark Knight where he was busted by Bats again and I think the idea may have been similar to the habit in the Bond films of starting a film with the end of a mission.

Ledger's Joker had no screen death and whilst he was hanging there at Bats mercy, even got a line about how they would keep running into each other whilst Bats told him he wasn't going to kill him.
A marked contrast from Nicholson's death plunge. (In the comics, the Joker has had many, many death plunges but not ones that show him smashed into the pavement.)

So if he hadn't died, he would probably have been in the opening minutes of the next Bats film. Possibly. Maybe.

I liked Ledger's Joker.
Hamill is possibly the greatest of all, his range managing to do justice to every Joker line he's given whether oozing absolute insane evil or comedy indignation from a thwarted ego.
The only really, really bad Jokers come from pre 90's animation, as far as I'm concerned but then again when you've got Casey Kasem playing Robin (and still sounding very you know who), you're already in trouble.

I rented a DVD of the 70's Batman cartoon for my kids a while ago. I had watched that show so much, that I still remembered the episodes 35+ years later. "THE MOOOOOON MAN" especially stuck in my mind. And an episode with the Joker and a hyena. My god, cartoons were bad in the 70's.
