In a very fun and very well done viral marketing campaign for the Batman Begins sequel next summer, The Dark Knight, a series of websites popped up initiating fan involvement and resulting in the first real photo of Heath Ledger as The Joker. The first website was IBelieveInHarveyDent.com which showed a campaign banner for Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent. The second website, IBelieveInHarveyDentToo.com had the same campaign banner, but defaced by the Joker with an e-mail submission form, revealing one pixel each time someone signed up. After endless work and the spread of the site over the internet, the photo was revealed - read on to check it out!
This ain't for kids - that looks pretty scary (at least I think so)! A great bit of very early buzz for the film, which is going to be one hell of a big sequel given that nearly every comic book fan ranks Batman Begins up there as one of the greatest comic book movies ever. Stay tuned for more updates as we follow the development on this sequel!
