The Joker in The Dark Knight Rises will be played by . . . Heath Ledger?!
Rumors are swirling again that the Joker may appear in The Dark Knight Rises. Showbiz Spy is reporting that their sources claim Nolan plans on using unused footage from Heath Ledger’s performance for The Dark Knight, along with some CGI to allow the Joker and Ledger to make one last appearance in the Batman films. The article does stress that all of this would be contingent upon approval from Ledger’s family. I make no secret of the fact that I feel the Joker should be recast and appear in Dark Knight Rises, but is this “cameo” a nice compromise? What do you guys think? Will Heath Ledger’s Joker appear again and if he does should he?
