If you go to www.ibelieveinharveydent.com you'll see a campaign ad for Harvey Dent for District attorney. Keep in mind, this is official The Dark Knight stuff.

Then, if you go to www.ibelieveinharveydenttoo.com you'll see a prank by the Joker himself. When you input your email (apparently Hotmail doesn't work), and the code that appears, you'll get an email with a link and some coordinates. Click the link, put in the coordinates, and another pixel is taken from Harvey Dent's already "defaced" picture, slowly revealing Heath Ledger as the Joker.

"I always say, you never know what a man is truly made of until you peel the skin off his face one piece at a time." -- Quote from the Joker's email

Somebody on SHH! took the pixels revealed so far, and kind of blurred them together, revealing this:

Keep in mind, it WILL look different when all is done.

That's really cool. Too bad I don't have the patience for it.

I think it works with the realism of Batman Begins. Makes Joker look more crazy, less silly. Besides, Ledger wouldn't look believeable if he was just grinning the whole time.

It's interesting. Buuut it does kinda look like he was trying to put on lipstick in the car and hit a pothole or something. I just try not to get excited about these things so I don't get disapointed when the time comes to actually see it. I'm sure we'll start to see a lot more. I see that his face appears slightly disfigured like in that recent (dreadful) Batman comic.

Yeah. I like the effort they have put into making him more life like, but I deduct points because of the weirdness involved in putting makeup on in the car.

It's real. Hey G-Man, why do you look like you're turning into a Cylon?

I like the messed up lipstick thing. You have to consider Joker's mindset here: he's the only one who finds his jokes funny, and he likewise probably thinks the lipstick looks great.

Why? Because he's a flipping psychopath.

Cylon? It's supposed to be more Terminator-like. And I hope you're talking the old-school Cylons and not the hot new one.

I really hope they do a good job showing how crazy Joker really is. Jack Nicholson was good and all but he was more goofy than crazy.

@htb106: way to necro.

...and he looks exactly like Joker in the excellent one shot of the same name by Azzarello which came out well before TDK.
