Ledger fans demand the Joker retired from film
LONDON, England (CNN) — A group of Heath Ledger fans have taken their reverence for the late "The Dark Knight" star to a whole new level.
Followers of the actor, who electrified audiences with his chilling reinvention of the Joker in the second Batman blockbuster, are calling for the character to be retired from the movies permanently.
Ledger supporters at new Web site, The Ultimate Joker, launched a petition last week calling for studios to remove the Joker from any future Batman movies. The petition currently has 2,431 supporters.
