Maybe it is just me, but I think the Joker in the game sort of resembles Jack Nicholson's Joker. I think it is the eyes. Would be the hair but his hair in the game looks like it has gel in it so that it sticks out more. What are your thoughts? Do you like the look of the Joker in the game?

For me its the hair speficily that makes him look abit on to the Nicholson Joker.

Nicholson's Joker is a bit more... "Podgy", the joker in this game looks positively malnourished, he probably only eats maybe once every three days, he's too busy causing chaos.

This Joker is modelled on original comics i think, definetly some inspiration from Nicholsan though, as Hamill's Joker was.

I love the new Joker, his smile is a little too clownish but even so, it looks perfect.

And btw i've just joined, how can you get avatars Just_Joker? It boggles my mind :eek:

I never really liked the look of the Joker, to be honest. The best imagery for the Joker was, in my view, The Dark Knight. Everything else is so overdone and flamboyant.

But at least the Joker is clearly faithful in this game, and they didn't give him outer-space armor and sunglasses.

I think it's more a case of Jack Nicholson's Joker resembling the Joker's basic 'look' as plotted out by most of the comics. For example:

<3 Alex Ross.


The Joker up there in that lovely banner looks to be taking the obvious aspects of most Joker incarnations (the chin, the hairline has been exaggerated and the painted mouth) and has popped him into a realistic stylish. He's not as gorgeous as Alex Ross' Joker though, but he follows the 'Joker style'.

Heath was an exception, as his face holds none of the traditional 'Joker' features though his eyes were intense. Nicholson was always a little bit too squishy in the face for me.

Hey wow, looking at that picture of him his eyebrows are uneven!! Ahh I wanna pluck them! ><
