Also I loved the backstory and the creation of the myth, more than anything. It's sort of like choosing between Beatles albums. Anyways, think I'll be alone on this one.
    It's all The Empire Strikes Back on the first one's ass IMO. Better, broader and darker. While the things that you may like about the first one may not be present, it just makes it all mean so much more.

    I love the first one, but (and I know this is very cliché) Ledger took it to a whole new level. There's something to be said for the thrill of a film actually living up to enormous hype.

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Definitely not!

    Nothing that he has done suggests he could handle such a role. Worst call.

    It would be silly for them to bring the Joker back, no one will be able to compete with Ledger.

    How about Mister Mxyzptlk?

    Heath Ledger had the brooding appeal about him and the smile. What does Jude Law have going for him?

    Watching Higher Learning for the first time in ages. Loved this movie, Omar Epps and Laurence Fishburn are awesome, Busta Rhymes and Ice Cube are hilarious and we get some early Jennifer Connely too.

    Indeed, plenty of crossover though, Superman even has a substantial role in The Dark Night Returns (which would be an awesome end to this series somewhere down the line).

    Being Heath's closest friend out of any talented actor.

    Heath came out with something we hadn't ever seen before, his brooding appeal came from the very vulnerability that made him an initial teen heart throb. He just twisted it.

    Law is just as capable of playing any other role Heath did, this one? Maybe not. But is anyone else?

    Depp couldn't do it the way Heath did, I think he's even said that he'll only do the kinds of films he wants his kids to watch. Depp himself also has a star factor around him, that will in itself overshadow a tribute to another mans creation Heath's Joker. Johnny while a fantastic actor would be distracting in the role.

    If it's one thing Depp can do it's dark-and-creepy.

    But would that be another Depp or would it be the Joker?
