Joker Revealed?

There was a FanBoy Frenzy this weekend, spurred by the appearance of a viral website that required more than 2 million people to log-in in order to reveal (1 pixel at a time) the face of Heath Ledger as The Joker from the upcoming Batman sequel, "The Dark Knight." Here's the pic:

Of course there's controversy over the photo, because the website was registered NOT by Warner Brothers, but by a well-known spam site. If you're interested, check the TalkBacks at AICN to see the research that was done.

To me, it just looks like a really crappy Photoshop of Heath's face and not a picture of him in makeup.

That said, I hope that this is the direction they're gonna go with the character. I much prefer the idea of a psychopath who disfigures himself to look like a clown rather than the cartoony Jack Nicholson character design.
