Joker pops up in Dark Knight Rises movie novel

July 29th, 2012 by Owen Quinn Comments

He was sorely missed in the movie, but it looks like Ledger’s joker is mentioned in the movie tie-in

If Heath Ledger hadn’t tragically died many wonder would he have put an appearance into the final Batman movie?
None can deny his portrayal was one of the most stunning and believable in movie history for which he rightfully won an Academy Award posthumously.

But the new book adaption of the Dark Knight Rises tells what happened to him: “The worst of the worst were sent here, except for the Joker, who, rumour had it, was locked away as Arkham’s sole remaining inmate. Or perhaps he had escaped. Nobody was really even sure. Not even Selina”

Our full review of the novel and interview with the author is coming soon

Husband, dad and Ireland's hardest working author, Owen Quinn is currently knee deep in The Time Warriors, arguably the biggest sci-fi epic ever to come out of Ireland. He has an unhealthy interest in Doctor Who, classic TV and Star Wars, he also hangs around with the Emerald Garrison far toooo much. Is it any wonder he fits in at FTN so well? Find Owen at the
