The Joker Finally Revealed

If you visit ibelieveinharveydenttoo.com, Warner has set up a site for the Joker's mock campaign for Harvey Dent. Waiting a few moments for the vandalized picture of Dent to fade pixel by pixel rewards you with the first shot of Heath Ledger as The Joker.

I like the grittiness, and it's neat how the scarring curves up. My question: Why so pouty, Joker? For a villain known primarily for a characteristic maniacal grin, he's giving a pretty sensual pout. It's like they got this from Joker's MySpace page. If you squint, you can even see how he probably based his look on a Nightmare Before Christmas hoodie he picked up at Hot Topic. Batman need only follow the sounds of Panic! At The Disco to find his arch-nemesis gently sobbing in his girl jeans.
