DC comics only have the one really great hero, who is none other than Batman. But they have the best villain in the whole comic history, Joker. Batman is the coolest hero not only in the DC universe but even in my overall coolest hero’s list, he comes at number 2 (1st will always be Iron Man). But Joker will always be the best hero of all time, say it in DC or Marvel. Sometimes, it feels like DC must have acquired both of them from Marvel, I mean, how the hell can they make so damn awesome hero and villain. So, in the memories of both of them, we are here for you with this post of The Dark Knight Poster Collection.
Before going straight to the posters, let’s talk about them a little.
Batman is the hero of the Gotham city which is facing a big problem caused by the criminals there. Batman and the district attorney together start rounding up the criminal until a mysterious criminal called Joker comes to highlight and start causing bigger chaos in the city.

- Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne / Batman
- Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth
- Heath Ledger as The Joker
- Gary Oldman as James Gordon

The Dark Knight Poster Collection
Let’s go to the Gotham city now to meet the heroes, especially, Joker!
The movie was released in the July of 2008. The movie was an instant hit because of its prequels success. The above one was the official poster used to promote the movie.
2.Dark Knight, But Bright Future
The movie made more than a billion dollar on a budget of just $185 million. It was a big success for them as, even after being a great movie, the prequel sucked at the box office.
Although there is no way you guys don’t know about him, I will still introduce him a little. Batman is Bruce Wayne, who is a billionaire playboy at daytime and a vigilante at night.
Joker is the main antagonist of the movie and he is the best villain ever (I know I have said this like 100s of times, but its true). He is a violent sociopath serial killer with a Joker’s face. He kills for his own amusement.
Harvey Dent is the District Attorney of Gotham. He has a “two-headed” coin, which he considered his lucky charm. He believes in his lucky charms and takes the decision on the basis of that coin only.
6.The Awesome Starting
The movie starts with the heist scene of the Joker, where every other thief kills each other one by one expecting more profit.
7.Not A DC Movie
Do not consider it a DC movie. It is Christopher Nolan’s movie, which is based on the characters of DC comics. The story was written by Christopher Nolan, so there is no connection of DC with it except the characters. P.S.- Is that the effect of Thanos’ snap?
8.Why Christian Bale Didn’t Continue
Christian Bale is no doubt, the best Batman of all time. But he was not cast in Batman Vs Superman and the director explains it saying that the batman in their movie is not the same batman as in The Dark Knight and that the Dark Knight doesn’t exist in DC universe. No surprise, DC’s movies are trash.
9. What Does Joker want?
Joker is the person who steals a big bag, no, a big truck of money and burns all the notes. In the movie, all he wants is to know who Batman really is? But later in the movie, he just want play with Batman.
Heath Ledger nailed his role as Joker. I cannot imagine anyone else in the role of Joker. He even got the award for Best Actor As Supporting Role for this movie. Unfortunately, he couldn’t watch his best movie, which rocked the world as he died six months before the screening because of cardiac arrest. Some people even believe that his obsession with Joker caused his death. R.I.P The Legend Heath Ledger.
11.Backstory Of Joker
Christopher Nolan made the movie but didn’t feature the past of Joker. Joker didn’t have one particular history of becoming the Joker, but there are many stories which led him to this path.
According to the movie The Killing Joke, a chemical engineer and wannabe comedian quits his job to pursue his dream but to support his pregnant wife, he agrees to help two criminals to break into a plant. But while planning, he gets the news of a household accident in which his wife died. He tries to back out of the plan, but the criminals force him to help. While entering the plant, the criminals get shot by the security and Batman arrives there to investigate.
13. Becoming Joker Continues…
Terrified, the engineer fell into a vat of chemicals and find himself with bleached chalk-white skin, ruby-red lips and green hairs. All these events cause a personality shift to the engineer and results in the birth of Joker. Although, there is another story in which the two criminals kidnap and kill his wife in order to force him to perform the crime and also a story in which the engineer is bored from his job and so he starts killing people, but Joker himself says in The Killing Joke that “ Sometimes I remember it one way, sometimes another… if I’m going to have a past, I prefer it to be multiple choice!”.
14. Why Do We Love-Joker
Joker is considered as the best villain in the comic history, not because of his past, not because of the way he murders. But because of the reason, he does it. Unlike other villains, who want to take over the world, or just murder for money, Joker does it without any reason and he can do anything to do it, which makes him a true villain. In fact, people loved him more than Batman.
15.The Good, The Bad And The Ugly
As I already introduced you with Harvey Dent, let’s find his another side. Harvey is an honest district attorney of Gotham. But later, as he faces a near-death experience and the death of Rachel, he changes to a new person because “whatever that doesn’t kill you simply makes you stranger”.
