Many rumors are swirling about the fate of Ledger's movies.

First, Johnny Depp is supposed to replace tragic actor Heath Ledger in what was to be his latest film role, in the fantasy flick "The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus."

Now the film’s director, Terry Gilliam wants his pal Johnny Depp, 44, to film the remaining scenes. A studio insider said: “There is a point in the film when Heath falls through a magic mirror. He could change into another character after that and that is where Johnny would come in. “It’s a weird, fantasy, time-travel movie so Heath’s character could easily change appearance. It would be a poignant moment.

Another rumor is that the Warner Bros marketing folks are mulling over the July 18 release of "The Dark Knight," where, Mister Heath was set to be the Joker! The centerpiece of the marketing campaign is centered around Ledger's character, now that he's gone, no one would be able to grant interviews for the movies.

Take a closer look at Ledger's Joker, didn't he eerily resemble Brandon Lee's "The Crow?" And we all know the tragic fate that met Brandon while shooting that movie. But for now, let's relish what will be Mister Heath's most-watched performance, Batman's most famous nemesis, the Joker in "The Dark Knight."
