Well, he was always going to be introduced in style - but the thought of a giant IMAX Joker gives us goosebumps, quite frankly.
The first reports of last night's advance screening of the first six minutes of Dark Knight goodness are flooding the web - and it's exciting stuff.
From the sounds of it, Nolan's Joker's first appearance is as cool as Burton's original Batman intro - with thugs discussing the mythology of the man, before he starts taking them out. The difference here is that Joker's doing it for fun and profit, not justice.
A full description can be found at MTV News here.
So, the Joker's finally been spotted in motion - let's hope the full trailer follows on 14 December, as rumoured, so we can all get a look at him.
