Heath Ledger’s role in new Batman movie The Dark Knight tipped for Oscar glory

Critics given a peek of the summer blockbuster at the weekend have given rave reviews about Ledger's performance as The Joker.

The Australian star completed work on the film shortly before his death from an accidental drugs overdose in January, aged 28.

He was nominated for an Oscar once during his career - for Brokeback Mountain in 2006 - and is being hailed as a serious contender once again.
