Movie Mutterings & More Besides…

The Dark Knight

is the just announced sequel to Batman Begins. I like it, although I am not the only person that thinks Batman will nudge its way into the title once the release marketing is underway for the 2008 release.

As with all casting rumour’s on superhero flicks there is always great debate on who will best play a particular villain - and in this case its the Joker (signposted at the end of Batman Begins - so it was always “on the cards“)

And the prize goes to Heath Ledger. I am sitting on the fence on this one, could go either way but after the way Nolan’s vision re-invented and re-launched the franchise after it plummeted to such depths, I am more than willing to give him the benefit of the doubt in this casting decision. Looking forward to it, now the character has been reintroduced we can get down to business properly this time round.
