Holy F*** Batman!!! Joker is back!! 😯 Here’s the new cover of Empire Magazine featuring the new Joker (played by Heath Ledger) from the upcoming movie, The Dark Knight, the sequel to the critically acclaimed ‘Reboot’ of the Batman Franchise, Batman Begins. I enjoyed Batman Begins and I think it is one of the best (if not the best) superhero movie I’ve seen. Here’s my review of Batman Begins from my old blog. Form the stuff that I heard about the scenes that they were shooting for this movie, I can see that this movie is going to be big and possibly surpass the first one. Here’s the synopsis courtesy of ComingSoon.net:
“Batman (Christian Bale) raises the stakes in his war on crime in Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight.” With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon (Gary Oldman) and District Attorney Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart), Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker (Heath Ledger).”
**Spoilers** I know that there’s a major car chase with a big explosion and I know someone dies with the Joker ruining his/her funeral. The plot involves gang wars and Joker takes over the power vaccuum of the criminal underworld. So expect chaos or as Gordon said in the previous movie, ‘escalation’. Bruce Wayne even went to Hong Kong so you can see the scope of this movie is bigger.
Here are some pics that will give you a taste of what’s to come. Enjoy.
