First off, I need to congratulate Warner Bros. for single-handedly sweeping the thunder out from underneath Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End, captivating the blogosphere for the past few days with all their subtle trickery. By now, I'm sure I don't need to run through the entire schpeel, but in case you were hiding under a rock, here goes: Two Harvey Dent sites were launched; one of which appeared to be a political poster featuring an image of Aaron Eckhart and the catchphrase I Believe in Harvey Dent. The other, however, was hijacked by the Joker -- spray painted to read I Believe in Harvey Dent Too -- and later opened up to reveal the first pic of Heath Ledger as the Clown Prince (a pic you can see to the right of your screen).

Now, that second Joker-fied site is gone and it's been replaced by a black screen with the words Page Not Found in red text. Ah, but if you highlight the screen, you'll notice the words "Ha Ha Ha" all over the place (in different shapes and sizes). But wait, that's not all! Amidst all the "Ha Ha" language, there are several out of place letters -- all of which add up to spell, "Be Sure to Drink Your Ovaltine." Kidding. They actually spell out, "See You in December." So what does it all mean? Well, it appears as if they're trying to tell us that we should expect a trailer for The Dark Knight to appear at some point this December, which means all the talk surrounding a possible teaser this summer might be false. Coming Soon has pointed out that the company behind the marketing campaign is 42 Entertainment; they also helped launch promotions for Halo 2 and the Nine Inch Nails album Year Zero. Additionally, 42 Entertainment registered the domain name yesterday. Will the first trailer for The Dark Knight hit theaters this December in front of the Warner Bros. flick I Am Legend? Will we get a teaser beforehand? I don't know about that, but I would sure as heck like to play some more games in the meantime. You?
