"Joker" Pic Turns Out to Be Fan-Made

Remember that "Heath Ledger as Joker" photo that hit the net a few days back, causing all sorts of fan-frenzy reaction? Yeah, it was a fake.

Turns out the pic was something thrown together by a rather proud individual over at this SuperheroHype.com message board, who then sent the thing out to a few websites to see who'd report what. And the thing just kind of took off from there. So that one close-up? Total fake. End of story.

And wasn't there some mention last week that the filmmakers wanted to release their own pic some time this summer ... just to prevent this sort of thing from happening? Kinda funny. Anyway, I'd be fine waiting until "The Dark Knight" hits the screens before I see what The Joker looks like. Crazy, I know.
