Heath Ledger is the Joker -- Empire's Cover Boy

Heath Ledger as the Joker will grace Empire Magazine‘s January 2008 issue, as revealed by JoBlo.

Empire Magazine has slowly been revealing the same picture (without the distracting text) at their “He is Coming” countdown.

The film also stars Aaron Eckhart as district attorney Harvey Dent/Two-Face, Maggie Gyllenhaal as assistant D.A. Rachel Dawes (formerly played by Katie Holmes), Michael Caine as butler Alfred Pennyworth and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, the CEO of Wayne Enterprises.

The Dark Knight opens in theaters nationwide on July 18. Bigger cover pic inside…

Wonderful Joker!

He did a good job in Brokeback Mountain… I hope he can pull it and impress is in this new role. BUT, there is always a but with HEATH he takes 2 far his fashion tastes, we seen him so many times photographed on the street with some BIZARE clothes. About clothes, fashio… I am sure that many of you love Kylie Minogue, lately she looked like the Grace Kelly but yesterday she was in Paris (the city not inside PARIS HILTON)… and the girl had a stupid haircut for Kylie, she was just looking dumd.

hello? aren’t you forgetting someone quite important? like, i don’t know, BATMAN?!?!

chris bale rocks.

# 7

who cares about Bale and Ledger..its all about Freeman and Gary Oldman.

# 8

HL will ruin this. He looks like Beetlejuice. I hate the fact Maggie Gyllenhaal is Batman’s girlfriend. What does Bats see in her? I hope she dies.

wrong choice for the Joker

Maggie Gyllenhaal is in this movie????? THAT SUCKS!!!!!!!!!!

We Want Zanessa!

He looks horrible (not his fault of course)

I like Paul Bettany or Hugo Weaving for the joker part. I dont think Heath can make us forget Jack Nicholson and the thought of Bale making out with Maggie gives me the heebie jeebies.

I can’t believe they got Maggie Gyllenhaal to play Rachel, I don’t like her at all and might ruin the movie for me! Bale is so hot, I hope there won’t be any kissing scenes between them or else I’ll vomit.

I like Katie Holmes much better than Mags.

yikes! scariiieeee clown. :lol: he’ll be great, good actor.

maggie gyllenhaal may not be pretty but that babe can certainly act. she’ll be great too, definitely a more talented actress than that fake, katie holmes (not even in the same league in terms of acting skills).

Im after the movie for Christian Bale not Heath Ledger.

Katie has it all especially class unlike Maggie who only does pornographic flicks all the time,she is not pretty but the saddest part she is a nasty human being. For me you are worthless if you got a bad personality no matter how ugly and pretty you are.

no one could have played the joker nowadays better than him.

Heath is a very talented actor!
We really don’t care how he’s dressed!
Only the act!!

First and foremost, aren’t they foregetting the star of the movie Christian Bale! Shouldn’t he be on the Cover! I don’t understand it!

When i heard heath was the joker a few years ago i thuoght he wouldnt be able to pull it off. the i got to thinking he ha a great joker smile. And the image they went for looks great, so do all the sound bites of heath.

Agree Maggs sux!!!!! so does katie holmes.

i loveyou for beilevin in him
