Now for the rumor side of things. Seems the director has signed on for 2 more movies. And has been hinting that my two favorite villains, The Joker and Harley Quinn will be in the next one. Here's hoping they come out as the darker versions from the comic books. The other big rumor? Mark Hamill, who voiced The Joker in the animated series, is the leading candidate for Mr. J in the movie. Don't know how I feel about that one; I'd like to see someone a little more twisted for the role. And if they screw up Harley like they did on that stupid TV show, I'll have to kill more than the normal number of people.
An odd side-effect occurred after the movie. I've gone back and torrented the old animated series. I forgot how good it was. It's not as dark as the books, but I really like the way most of the characters came out. The Mad Hatter, The Riddler, Ra's Al Ghul; all came out very well. And of course, any series that can spawn what became the truly twisted Ms. Quinn scores brownie points.
