As Ari Gold on HBO'S Entourage would say: Heath Mother****in' Brokeback The Joker Ledger! you could be talking about 0 million in box office domestic quite easily for a Batman sequel with Depp. I've talked to a lot of people that will see movies just because he is in it. I know it probably won't happen but Depp as Joker Bale as Batman Nolan as Director Script based around "The Killing Joke" = Greatest Superhero Movie EVER.Stay further tuned to Latinoreview as this story further develops. Meaning by saying that you think that Heath Ledger sucks, do you actually mean that he literally sucks on something and-- It is totally not funny anymore when you break it down. You mean I have to watch Batman Begins 2 with a bunch of 14 year old girls fapping for The Joker? And lets face it, he has the acting chops to do it, and I think he would like to play a homicidal type of character after Po TC. More $$$ means a higher chance of a Bale / Nolan trilogy. You wouldn't even be able to say Spider-Man or Superman Returns in the same sentence without laughing.
We probably have all got ourselves into a bit of state about this.We were first to tell the world that Brandon Routh was going to be the new Superman. because your box office returns are going to be so much higher. Then again the fans did pretty much pick Bale themselves. but lets face it, your box office returns are likely to be 0-0 million higher worldwide with Johnny on board, paying him million even ...

It's possible but I liked some of the selections rumored previously enough to see what happens. One big reason I would love to see Depp is these days he really puts the butts in the seats.Alright mill upfront, with points on the backend. :) However the points on the backend may not be as insane as what it was for Nicholson, because that version of Batman was slapped onto every t-shirt, poster, coffee mug, action figure, etc. Leading to huge hype for the eventual 3rd film which Joker should still be in.Therefore leading to another committment for Depp which he might not be willing to take after such a massive undertaking with Sparrow's work right now.
