The Weekly Ketchup: New Joker Pic, Dark Knight Footage Leaked, Iron Man at Comic-Con, and More!

Spider-Man 4 in Early Stages; Depp Goes Hunting Again.

In this week's Ketchup, we see a new photo of Heath Ledger as The Joker, the first teaser trailer of the sure-to-be hit The Dark Knight, and some grainy footage of the "Batpod" in action. Also, Iron Man brings the house down at Comic-Con, we get some early news about Spider-Man 4, and Johnny Depp plans another outing as Hunter S. Thompson. Read on.

This Week's Most Popular News:

New Pic of Heath Ledger as the Joker
It appears IGN Movies has solved the riddle left by Warner Bros. on the teaser site promoting the next Batman movie, The Dark Knight. As the reward, we get to see not only Heath Ledger as the Joker, but also a video teaser of the movie as well.

The Dark Knight Footage Leaked!
We've got a little under a year to go before The Dark Knight graces our cineplex screens, but Warner Bros. knows how to parcel out morsels for hungry fans -- now, to go along with the steady stream of casting information, photos, and the first teaser, Latino Review is offering footage of Batman's motorcyle (A.K.A. "The Batpod") in action.

Surprise Iron Man Footage Knocks Comic-Con's Socks Off
Director Jon Favreau wasn't supposed to present much on the upcoming comic book flick Iron Man until Saturday, but Thursday's crowd got a treat when he unveiled an entire segment of footage early, in true Comic-Con style.

Early Production Underway for Spider-Man 4
Yep, just a little more vague mumbling about what might happen on Spider-Man 4, but when Sam Raimi has something to say, it's usually worth listening to.

Johnny Depp to Take Another Crack at Hunter S. Thompson
It's been a long time coming, but it looks like Johnny Depp will finally get his wish to turn Hunter S. Thompson's The Rum Diary into a movie. And of course he'll be playing the legendary author. (Again.)


Quite a stretch from his cowboy role

I still can't figure out why they hired that malformed hag to play Rachel. Rachel McAdams or Lacey Chabert would have been so much better.

Correction Lacy Chabert would have looked better. She's not half the actress Gyllenhal is. Really neither is McAdams though she might have been in this specific part.

I'm not saying Gyllenhal isn't a good actress, it's just that she doesn't have the look that would attract an incredibly rich and attractive (and buff!) man who could have anybody. There are plenty of beautiful AND talented actresses out there who could play this part.

Maybe, but a lot of guys in the world who can have anybody want what they can't have. More often than not that's some childhood crush who may or may not be the most attractive woman in the world to someone else. Plus Batman's not exactly going to settle down with some bimbo who's only interested in him for the money now is he? The Batcave would be swarming with villains after she sold the secret during the divorce procedings :). Plus if you're talking about real life as well while Maggie may not be on the high end of the "TV/Movie pretty" cycle as everyday girls go she's still pretty hot.

Maggie Gyllenhal is very very sexy. My husband and I love to watch her. And she's a fantastic actress. I think her sexiness is more subtle, like Lauren Bacall was in the 40's-50's. Maggie isn't wearing wonder bras and cleavage baring blouses to get attention in the press, she's being a great actress and making a name for herself that way.

Yes, she is a great actress but I think everyone is missing my point. There are beautiful and intelligent women out there who aren't bimbos. Maybe not that many but a man who is at the pinnacle of everything would have no problem finding one. It would be like a billionaire living in a three bedroom two bath house. There is nothing wrong with a house that size for most people but for a man that can afford anything it makes no sense.

We get your point Canuck. You just don't get the point of the character. She's the girl next door, the one he grew up with. Yeah, he can get any kind of super-model chick he wants, but he wants her. You're clearly putting entirely too much importance on appearance.

Ok, if you can watch The Secretary and not think Maggie Gyllenhal is lustworthy, you are either a eunich or mentally handicapped. That's not my personal opinion, mind you, this is law.

Or Stranger than Fiction. She's in my list of understated hotties who can act. She definitely fits the 'girl next door' and 'childhood crush' role. Don't know what the hell the fuss is about.

If that is your girl next door I feel sorry for you. Both girls who live next door to me are hotter then her.
