Even though Sir Michael Caine said the Joker would be the villian in the next Batman movie, fans have been speculating for some time who would play the Clown Prince of Crime. Names like Robin Williams and Mark Hamill have circulated (I even saw one rumor of Michael Keaton), but fans may now have an answer.

Latino Review, who broke the news that Brandon Routh would be Superman, is reporting Heath Ledger will play the arch-villian to Christian Bale’s Batman.

We were first to tell the world that Brandon Routh was going to be the new Superman. Now here we are at it again as we just got word from A VERY TRUSTED SOURCE that the offer last night was officially made to Heath Ledger to star as The Joker in the Batman Begins Sequel! As Ari Gold on HBO’S Entourage would say: Heath Motherfuckin’ Brokeback The Joker Ledger!


Can the site go 2 for 2 in the trusted source department?
