The Model A Ford
pickup you see above will play the Joker's Clown Car in the upcoming Batman sequel, The Dark Knight
. Heath Ledger will play the Joker to Christian Bale's Batman (who gets a new suit
, incidentally), but he unfortunately gets stuck with this very unimpressive (and very purple) truck that has no chance of outrunning the Tumbler
. In fact, the Tumbler could likely slice this truck in two if Batman were to t-bone the Joker in an intersection. It also turns out that illustrator Chris Ring was way off the mark when he paired the Joker with a 1974 Ford Mustang II
in his Comics and Costume Sketchbook
we told you about last week.
