The Dark Knight trilogy has left one of the biggest legacies in superhero movies. Some say it brought out the darkness of superheroes in films. The second installment of the film trilogy has made over one billion dollars. It arguably carries the highest superhero film rating. No one can forget Heath Ledger’s iconic performance, where the whole world found out how mad the Joker really is. He’s not just some clown sending gag gifts, he’s monstrous.
This opened doors for the true Joker to make himself into mainstream media. Animated movies like The Dark Knight Returns, Red Hood, and The Killing Joke highlights the character’s insanity. In the documentary featuring the beloved actor, I Am Heath Ledger, they dedicate a scene in the making of the Clown Prince of Crime. Ledger fell into his character, and here is DKN sharing the clip. Enjoy the horrifying craft and insanity.
