Having finally got an official title, is it now time for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice to get a Clown Prince of Crime?
Larry Fong, cinematographer on the superhero sequel, has tweeted an image that has sent the internet into a frenzy of speculation, confusion and miss-understanding and may, (but more likely not) hint at the Joker appearing in the movie.
Check it out:
The image shows a face-down playing card stuck in a piece of concrete. So surely this must be 'concrete' proof that the Joker is going to appear in [Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice](movie:711870)?
Actually, probably not.
Despite appearing to be the greatest movie tease of the year, this image might have a much more innocent explanation: apparently Mr Fong is a top magician and this is an image of one of his card tricks.
If you don't believe me, maybe Superman's biggest fan can convince you :
If Superman Fan says this has got nothing to do with the Joker then I'm inclined to believe him. That being said, a magician's chief M.O. is the art of miss-direction.
And we all know the Joker is fond of a magic trick now and again.
What do you think? Joker calling card or innocent - and impressive - magic trick?
