Warner Bros. has been teasing fans with tidbits about Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight for months now. There have been hints given in interviews, and several viral marketing games across the Internet. All of which has served to increase fan's appetite for the first time they will see Ledger on the big screen as the Clown Prince of Crime.
The scene sounds pretty intense. It also seems possible that the Joker's line of dialogue from the teaser trailer "Starting tonight... people will die. I'm a man of my word," could come from this initial scene.
The Dark Knight hits theatres July 18, 2008.
