The Joker Back In Next Batman Film???

The folks over at Total Film give us this:

The Dark Knight producer Chuck Roven has claimed that people need to “separate the actors from the role,” in response to a question regarding The Joker and Heath Ledger. When asked by MTV whether the filmmakers would have done anything different had they known Ledger wouldn’t be reprising the role, Roven claimed that the character wasn’t tied to the actor.

“On a personal level, Heath was a friend of mine,” he said at the People’s Choice Awards. “We had worked together before The Dark Knight, but I still think that The Dark Knight is its own thing, and we have to separate them.”

I celebrate this news IF it indeed turns out to be true.


  1. My vote is to make Steve Buscemi the next Batman villain. I think that he'd make a great Joker. I've created a Facebook group called "Let's Make Steve Buscemi the next Batman Villain." Please search for it and be the first to join it.

  2. i think that the story of the next batman
    should NOT have the joker in it...
    Heath Ledger owned the role...
    it would be stupid and irrisposible
    to replace him...make the story so
    that the Joker is in prison and he can not
    disrupt Heath's great work from the
    dark knight

  3. i agree with anonymous.....NO NEW
    JOKER just go to a new story..
