According to the Latino Review, Heath Ledger is apparently been offered to star as the Joker in Christopher Nolan's sequel to Batman Begins.
(The Latino Review broke the story that Brandon Routh would play the part of Superman, so that gives some validity to this breaking story).
Also, I read awhile back that Michael Caine in talking about the film, called Batman Begins 2, "The Joker."
I like that title, and think it's more suiting than something long like "Batman Begins Again" or "Batman Begins: United."
For a previous discussion on this film check out the post The Joker and Batman Begins 2.
Sorry Jordan, I know you were hoping Paul Bettany would get the role, and you even mentioned Bettany's role in A Knight's Tale, I guess we were just thinking about the wrong Knight's tale character.
