How in the world could anyone play The Joker after Heath Ledger? Impossible. It’s not just my opinion, but that of director Christopher Nolan.
According to Nolan: “For me, Heath was the definitive Joker. It wouldn’t feel appropriate to readdress that character.”
The third installment of the series is scheduled for release on July 29, 2012.
If you need a reminder of just how good Heath was in the role, and why he won a posthumous Academy Award for his performance, here it is.
