It ain’t news, but it’s fun. I love an septuagenarian filmmaker with a sense of humor. As we enter the endgame marketing push for The Dark Knight, expect to see a swarm of covers like the two alternates that grace the current issue of Empire. The image you see above is from the copy with the Joker cover, which also features some ‘Joker-ized’ articles inside. I admire that Clint Eastwood (or his publicist) allowed his feature to be defaced. Warner Brothers isn’t even distributing Changeling; in a break from a decade or so working with the WB, Malpaso went with Universal this time out.

Head over to Empire to see the covers and a few more inside scans.
