Johnny Depp's name came up a lot when rumors were circling the net regarding who would play the Joker in the next Batman movie "The Dark Knight." Somehow he didn't end up with the part. Heath Ledger took the role instead. I'm not sure how that will work out, but hopefully it will be ok. As for Depp, does anyone else think he could make it into the Batman movies? He's always favored movies with dark overtones, and especially characters with a bit of shade to them. A Batman bad guy seems like it would be right up his alley, or maybe he's already too big to even need to be a Batman bad guy. Anyone have any thoughts as to who he could play in the new Batman movies?
