Joker wears a clown mask in The Dark Knight. It looks a lot like the one in the old Batman TV series. Are they the same?
In the opening of The Dark Knight the Joker (Heath Ledger) hides his face behind a clown mask during a bank robbery. In 1966 Batman aired the episode "The Joker is Wild" where the Joker (Cesar Romero) impersonates a clown. He takes the place of the lead actor who plays Canio during they're in-opera performance of Pagliacci.
So, how different is the clown mask of The Dark Knight from the TV version? We've all seen the movie, but most haven't seen the Batman episode.
Watch the video below. Let's see if the clown mask in The Dark Knight is similar to the Batman version.
They look almost exactly the same to me.
What do you think? Is the Joker clown mask the same in Batman and The Dark Knight?
