Early Joker concept art

If you thought Heath Ledger's Joker was scary, take a look at the picture above. The guys over at slashfilm have scanned pictures from The Dark Knight: Featuring Production Art and Full Shooting Script, which show off some early concept art for The Joker. All these takes on The Joker are pre-Ledger so perhaps it was his casting which inspired the final Joker we got in DARK KNIGHT. Whatever the case, I like his Joker best. He wasn't as visually disturbing. Instead, it was his actions that made him such a menacing force. What do you think? Would such a horrifying Joker have distracted too much from Ledger's great performance? See the rest of the pictures after the jump.
