If the rumors posted today on Batman-on-Film are true, you'll get a sneak peek at the Batman Begins sequel, The Dark Knight, at IMAX theaters come Christmas time. The scoop: A seven-minute "prologue" of The Dark Knight, featuring Heath Ledger as the Joker, will preceed the Will Smith actioner, I Am Legend, in IMAX theatres.

Batman, blood-sucking mutants (no vampires mentioned in I Am Legend) and the first look at the Joker... YOWSA! Even makes that abomination of a JLA movie -- read this short news item from the awesome Dark Horizons -- sound slightly more tolerable...
