Heath Ledger played the Joker in Christopher Nolan?s Dark Knight Trilogy

Settle down, folks. The Joker is not in Batman vs Superman - not yet.

Settle down, folks. The Joker is not in Batman vs Superman - not yet.
This picture of a playing card tweeted by cinematographer Larry Fong instantly caused a tidal wave of speculation about The Joker being the secret supervillain in the Man Of Steel sequel, now filming.

As rumours swirled, some folks identified the picture as nothing more than a card trick, played to while away time on set:


The poster of the picture ruefully said:
The case for The Joker includes math that adds up: two superheroes two supervillains = one blockbuster film. Henry Cavill's Superman already has Jesse Eisenberg's Lex Luthor to battle. Who will Ben Affleck's Batman match wits against?
Not The Joker, it seems. Or does it? Is Mr Fong's veiled denial simply misdirection?
If it is, comic book fans - a film with Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Lex Luthor AND The Joker? OMG! - will have died and gone to an illustrated heaven.
