MySpace has debuted the first image of CHUD favorite Jackie Earle Haley as Freddy Krueger, and as you might expect… he looks like Freddy. Hooray for iconic characters in rim-lighting!
The picture is heavily steeped in shadow and honestly contains the fewest possible discernible pixels that would still invoke the character. What we can tell though, is that the glove looks appropriately nasty, and that we should be in store for some pretty raw burn-victim make-up (the fused ear looks nice). In other words, all the important things are covered.

It’s expected that another picture will surface today, so be on the lookout for that. In the meantime, take a look at the preview for Devin’s set visit.
UPDATE: The aforementioned pic has surfaced and it has indeed turned out to be the first teaser poster. It’s still a burned guy. See all of the burned guy at IGN.
