I just saw this movie today. I had been a batman fan since a kid. This is unquestionably the BEST comic/superhero/action movie ever. The acting is perfect...the story is perfect. The gadgets are plausable...no cheesy additions. Its sad that Heath Ledger is no longer with us...but he was a true masterpiece in this movie. His character truly captured the essense of the dark joker from the graphic novels. The ending was among the best movie endings ever. Its just an unbelievable movie. My favorite for a while to come.
What I hope is the joker is extreamly insane but not over the limit and a fat part of the movie's foxuse is him I can't wait to watch I'm going to wait for it to come out since I have a higher priority

Edit thats another thing I HATE,when a great movie has a sour/non conclusive ending...
Saw the movie.
It was a bittersweet experience for me. The movie was fantastic, but I don't believe we will see the Joker again(I wouldn't want to be the guy hired to top Ledger's performance) and unless they say "hey, bet we fooled you with that ending there" I can't think of any villians that would be on par with what we've already seen.
I could be wrong, though.
"wanna see a magic trick?"
saw it tonight....will likely see it again this weekend since i dont have to pay to get in ....thought it was a great movie, thought maybe they were over hyping the Joker due to Ledgers death but damn he was good.....though i have generally liked his acting in most past movies(The Patriot, Knights Tale, Four Feathers......) but he did surpass all those by far.....defiantly insane with out going past the point and just being silly....i know there will be a third film but have no clue where they will get another villain....the riddler is to cartoony for this version of the series as is the penguin....catwoman isnt a true villain...unless they bring something from The League of Shadows that Ra's al Ghul was apart of...as for the ending, i think it was perfect........
I read that they weren't going to use the Penguin ever for exactly the same reason you said, rattler: too cartoony. I saw it for a second time yesterday morning for the cheap seats since my wife had worked the night shift the previous night and was sleeping all day. Highlight between the spoiler tags if you've seen the movie about one of the next possible villains.
I think they can still use Harvey Dent as a villain, pulling a Jim Gordon with a hidden death. I thought I remembered from somewhere that Bruce Wayne tries to help him recover, offering to pay his medical bills and treatments... So they could be keeping him in hiding trying to get him back to normal in hopes of him continuing his reign as the white knight.
