Christopher Nolan Hints About "Joker" Approach
From Horowitz's Better Than Fudge blog: "Horowitz: Is there anything to be inferred from the name you?ve chosen for this film, "The Dark Knight"?
Nolan: Ultimately yes. [Laughs] But I?ll leave that for people to infer.
Horowitz: This is the cryptic portion of our chat.
Nolan: Yeah. [Laughs] The title has been chosen very specifically. It?s quite important to the film.
Horowitz: I take it [the Joker] will be less Cesar Romero and Jack Nicholson than the Joker we saw portrayed in a comic like "The Killing Joke"?
Nolan: Yes. I would certainly point to "The Killing Joke" but I also would point very much to the first two appearances of the Joker in the comic. If you look at where the Joker comes from there?s a very clear direction that fits what we?re doing very well."
