A possible first look into Johnny Depp's character, Mad Hatter, in "Alice in Wonderland" has been unearthed. Bringing it up to the surface was Depp's fansite,, which claimed to get the pic from Wicked Wench. In the picture, it can be seen that Depp holds a rabbit close to his chest. He is portrayed with dark eyes, pale face and bandaged left thumb.

Though the fansite claims the image to be the first pic of the Mad Hatter, many doubt whether the image is real since the character will most likely be presented in motion capture. Cinematical, in particular, suggests that it may be a concept art for the character or a painting of the character " that may or may not show up in the background of a scene".

In "Alice", Depp will star opposite titular character's depicter, Mia Wasikowska. He will also be joined by other co-stars that include Anne Hathaway, Helena Bonham Carter, Michael Sheen and Alan Rickman.

Based on the Lewis Carroll classic of the same name, "Alice in Wonderland" will be Tim Burton-directed project that will combine performance-capture imagery with live-action footage. The script is penned by Linda Woolverton, and the film itself is expected to hit U.S. theaters on March 5, 2010.

Johnny Depp as "Carrot Top." Separated at birth?

Also, if I'm not mistaken, I think that Tim Burton's version is more of "Alice goes back to Wonderland and finds it to be a darker scene than remembered"

His predictability is what draws viewers. His works are exciting in a know-what-to-expect kind of way. I have always loved the book, and the Disney version always bothered me, because it took out so many good scenes. I hope Burton makes his version more adaptable to the book. To those who disapprove of a 'nightmarishly' version, the book wasn't exactly a dreamy scene... She nearly drowns in her own tears, encounters a chicken-sized gnat, carries around a baby that turns into a pig, and who could forget the whole off-with-her-head thing?

Has anyone ever heard of 3D animation? Then again his movies with Burton and wife are not that good.

the book is a nightmare. "off with her head" remember? It was only sugar coated so kids could watch it. Seriously a big dissappearing cat n the middle of a dark forest, that would freak me out. Look at brothers Grimm, shows that the little children stories you cherish as innocent really aren't. Ever seen the show supernatural? Had an episode where an old lady in a cottage eats a couple alive- hansle and gretle. Big wolf eats 3 fat guys. Pretty sick if u ask me. Lol. But you're entitled to your opinion. So no biggy :)

actually fireboy, american mcgee's alice is not being made into a film adaptation afterall. that was a possible movie staring sarah michelle gellar as alice. the project has been circling as a possibility since 2003. gellar dropped that project a long time ago. the whole thing was never really an official project to begin with

Toobes - the reason it is predictable is because Tim Burton has s tyle of his own, that is instantly recognisable and individual. He IS a big deal. I love Burton's work, and wish I'd been here sooner so I could have seen this image before it was pulled down.

it could be a picture for 'american mcgee'Alice which is a more twisted and cruel version of lewis carolls origional and is currently being made as a film

I think the look would fit in with the story, somewhat bizarre, a little nightmarish ...

This would be based on the computer game American McGee's Alice which follows the story that Alice's parents died in a fire and she was the sole survivor. She goes quite mad and while in the insane asylum she enters a dark and twisted Wonderland.

the big deal with burton is that he is creative and a great storyteller.

no it doens't fit the story at all try reading the book the book isn't wierd or nightmarish, Lewis Carrol wrote the novel to be a fiction novel based soley on mathematical logic.

How VERY predictable - white face, hollow cheeks, and no doubt Helena B-C will look the same. I don't know what the big deal is with Tim Burton.
