Heath Ledgers Joker is a difficult act to follow. He was a true psychopath and like Javier Bardom Anton Chigurh a menace to everyone even his own gang members. What do you do when one actors performance becomes synonymous with a character you've
now been asked to play?
If you play it like Ledger's version you'd just be accused of doing a poor impression of Ledgers Joker which is a problem to start with. So you have to change it into your
version of it since it's a different script etc and hopefully bring to the character something the audience can relate to. The Joker is insane but so the world we live in and that's what makes the Joker such a compelling character. If the worlds mad why behave?
So he looks weird more like the comic book or the Batman Game series but that's to try and get away from the Dark Knight version. After all and I shudder as I write this -he might be the Films Comic relief.
