So here we have the first views of Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent. And... drumroll please... Heath Ledger as The Joker. It seems the Warner Brother are finally taking the marketing of a film seriously. The Dent image was released on a mock-up election website for Harvey Dent, the District Attorney of Gotham City. Hopefully this will just be a splash page for a more comprehensive Harvey Dent election website.

Meanwhile, another site has popped up over the weekend. A website that has been hijacked by the Joker, asks viewers to enter a code and an email address in order to reveal a pixel of what may very well be the final look of Heath Ledger as the Clown Prince of Crime. The net went on a frenzy of email entering and pretty quickly, the image of The Joker was revealed-

Personally, I like the way Nolan and his team are going down the scarred route with the Joker. It fits in more with the vision Nolan created with Batman Begins.
So far, Warner Brothers are going down a good route with this film. They seem to be taking the marketing of this film very seriously, something Warners don't have a very good history of doing. Hopefully this trend will continue not just with this film, but with others too.
