I have to be honest. Of all the posters that have been created to promote next month's release of The Dark Knight, I prefer...
...and kind of want to buy, frame and hang prominently in my apartment...
...the two most disturbing Joker posters.
The first Joker poster was released months ago, but this image just hit the blogoshpere and I love it. Hard.
One would assume that I would prefer the Christian Bale Batman posters or even the "That's hot, wrong and right in SO many ways" Bale / Batman "Got Milk?" ad.
But no, I go for the blood smeared, "John Wayne Gacy" posters featuring The Clown Prince of Crime.
As evidenced by my last relationship, I tend to choose "Violent Psychopath" over "Hot Guy in a Black Rubber Suit." It's the masochist in me.
P.S. Philip and I were walking past Gaymart last week and when we saw the 13 inch Deluxe Action Figures of Ledger's Joker and Bale's Batman in the window, we squealed like school girls.
A man who was bicycling by the store laughed at us. AT us. Loudly.
Obviously, BikeBoy doesn't know what pleasure a 13 inch Deluxe toy can bring.
Sure, these figures are collector's items, but if it's 13 inches, I WILL take it out of the box.
