Don’t look now, but I might be hard. Oh, okay. You can look! Stuff reports:
Christopher Nolan is reportedly considering using previously unseen footage of Heath Ledger in the new Batman movie. “The idea is to use these fragments of cut scenes and use CGI to have The Joker appear one last time,” a source explained. “Chris wants some continuity between movies and for the franchise to pay tribute to Heath and his portrayal of the Joker.” It is thought only a snippet of footage will be used, although the plan is only in the early stages at the moment. If it goes ahead it is likely to be a hit with fans and industry professionals alike, as Heath’s portrayal of the Joker has gone down in film history as one of the most intense depictions of a character ever seen. “It would only be a fleeting moment in the movie and would only be included with the full consent of Heath’s family,” the source added.
Of course this is all just unsubstantiated rumor and speculation, but Christopher Nolan couldn’t make a bad movie if he tried and Heath Ledger as The Joker was utterly brilliant, so I’m going to live my life like this is 100% true. Just like the time my girlfriend told me that size doesn’t matter and that she loves me just for me. She’s so sweet!
