Gotham City has fallen victim to the mischief and destruction of the Joker, and it is up to Batman to put a stop to it. The Joker targets Batman’s allies to show that “no one is incorruptible” and people are capable of descending to their own darkness. There is a fine line between good and evil and treading on it will lead to a powerful ending.

Christian Bale, as Batman has encapsulated this role throughout not only The Dark Knight, but also Batman Begins, and stars in American Psycho, Thor, The Machinist, American Hustle, and more. With Heath Ledger as The Joker, Gary Oldman as James Gordon, Aaron Eckhart as Harvey, and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox, this movie is action packed with a show stopping cast.

The Joker is an iconic role, and it was meant for Heath Ledger from the beginning. Many other actors such as Paul Bettany, Steve Carrell, and Adrian Body had hoped for the chance to play the character, however Nolan knew he wanted to work with Heath and sought out for him initially!
