Well, I liked Jack Nicholsen as the Joker.
And I felt Heath Ledger would have alot to live up to.
But judging from the few glimps you get from the trailers (haven't seen the movie yet, will on Sunday I think) it would seem he not only lived up to my expectations, but surpassed them.
This is of course a much darker version than the ones from the 90's.
Batman The Movie is the only good Batman movie of the 4 that was made back then. The other 3 was just silly. Until Batman Begins of course.
This is how I rank them:
Batman the Movie
The others arn't worth considering.
I'm very exited to finally see this second installment.
And once I do, I'm sure it will, atleast, bump Batman The Movie down to third place.
Possibly even Batman Begins to second place.
