Villain Overview
Do you wanna know how I got these scars? My father was a drinker, and a fiend. And one night, he goes off crazier than usual. Mommy gets the kitchen knife to defend herself. He doesn't like that. Not. One. Bit. So, me watching, he takes the knife to her, laughing while he does it. He turns to me, and he says, "Why so serious?" He comes at me with the knife. "Why so SERIOUS?!" He sticks the blade in my mouth—"Let's put a smile on that face!" Aaaand... Why so serious?
~ The Joker telling his supposed backstory to Gambol before killing him - his most famous quote.
You just couldn't let me go, could you? This is what happens when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object. You truly are incorruptible, aren't you? Huh? You won't kill me, out of some misplaced sense of self-righteousness... and I won't kill you, because you're just too much fun! I think you and I are destined to do this forever.
~ The Joker's final confrontation with Batman.
I took Gotham's "White Knight", and I brought him down to our level. It wasn't hard. See, madness, as you know, is like gravity: all it takes is a little push!
~ The Joker explains how he drove Harvey Dent to insanity before he is arrested.

The Joker is the main antagonist of the 2008 superhero film The Dark Knight, the second installment of Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy. He was a psychotic anarchist and notorious criminal mastermind who, describing himself as an agent of chaos, rose to power in the criminal underworld by thrusting Gotham City into turmoil, and drew Batman ever closer to crossing the fine line between heroism and vigilantism.

His depiction in the film is often considered by many to be the darkest and most realistic version of the original Clown Prince of Crime since his early beginnings in DC comics (prior to a softening of character), at least in regards to the live action films. Perhaps due to the popularity of The Dark Knight, the mainstream Joker's extreme sociopathic tendencies have begun to be more emphasized.

He was portrayed by the late Heath Ledger, who also played Tony Shepard in The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus.

Personality

Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
~ Alfred Pennyworth.

The Joker was nothing more or less than a personification of radical nihilism, insanity, cynicism, murderous nature, mental instability and anarchism. He viewed himself as not bad, good, or neutral, but rather a level higher than everyone else when it came to life. Joker believed that superficial and meaningless chaos and selfishness was basic human nature and tried to get everyone to agree with that theory.

The Joker was very egocentric and vainglorious in this area, as he disliked people who resisted or fought his opinion. The Joker took pride in having reached that conclusion before everyone else and viewed morally strong people as naive, immature, ridiculous, and foolish. The Joker was also not greedy and had no interest in money or even companionship. The Joker was really hard to place, as he knew what he was doing was evil by modern standards, but at the same time, he hoped that his behavior would become acceptable once everyone realized that anarchy was the only way to live. However, once the people of Gotham proved him wrong, outside of a brief moment of anger, he didn't really care. This implies that he was doing this all for fun. Interestingly, the only times in which he's ever shown anger are when people call him a freak, as seen when he became visibly annoyed by the other mobsters calling him a freak, and decided to feed the Chechen to the dogs when he called him a freak.

The Joker was also shown to be abnormally manipulative, temperamental, treacherous, impatient, and above all sadistic. He took immense joy in others being physically or psychologically wounded and even made dead-pan jokes on the occasions. The Joker was also utterly fearless and masochistic which robbed Batman of his pain-inflicting and fear inducing tactics on his enemies.

Those traits also make Joker a good hand-to-hand opponent for the Caped Crusader despite him seemingly having no martial arts training as he frantically charged at Batman and ruthlessly wailed on him, something an opponent with a fear of getting hurt would never have done.

Similar to Two-Face, the Joker left prominent examples of chaos to chance, such as blowing up a hospital or the two ferries. However, unlike Two-Face, the Joker never left it up to something that he could not control, like a coin. Instead, he let the people of Gotham choose the outcome. He also left no option in which everyone was safe, and made it perfectly plain that people were going to die regardless of what option was chosen.

The Joker also shared characteristics with the other primary antagonists of the Batman trilogy. Like Ra's al Ghul and Bane, the Joker did not like the way that Gotham had existed or functioned, thought that his evil means were justified by their ends, used fear as torture, hid nothing of his plans from the protagonists to induce panic, and pigheadedly thought himself "ahead of the curve," to avoid facing his flaws.

Joker differed from the other two by wanting to revolutionize Gotham City rather than destroy it. He was the only one of the three who was not a martial artist or a member of the League of Shadows. The Joker was also far more maniacal and intelligent than they were and was also the only one who never found out Batman's identity. The Joker stood more or less in between the three villains as he was an anarchist, while Ra's al Ghul was flat out delusional, and Bane was admittedly: "Necessary Evil".

In addition, the Joker was exceedingly cunning, manipulative through the use of fear, oblivious to his insanity and depravity, and flawlessly thorough in his plans. The Joker's only real setback was his blind ambition that everyone was as cruel deep down as he was on the surface. The Joker also lacked any fear of being killed in his actions, as demonstrated by his trying to goad Batman into running him over as well as laughing when Batman threw him off the roof of a building, which made him far more dangerous.

But when I say that one, little old mayor will die, well, THEN EVERYONE LOSES THEIR MINDS!
~ Joker manipulating Harvey Dent to be evil.
You have nothing, nothing to threaten me with! Nothing to do with all your strength! But don't worry, I'm gonna tell you where they are! Both of them, and that's the point. You'll have to choose. He's at 250, 52nd Street and she's on Avenue X at Cicero.
~ The Joker to Batman.

If anyone attempts to get of their boat, you all die. Each of you has a remote to blow up the other boat. At midnight, I blow you all up. If, however, one of you presses the button, I'll let that boat live. So, who's it gonna be? Harvey Dent's most wanted scumbag collection or the sweet and innocent civilians? You choose. Oh, and you might wanna decide quickly because the people on the other boat may not be quite so noble.
~ The Joker conducting a sadistic 'social experiment.'
We made it!
~ The Joker to his gang.

Reception

The Joker in the film has since been regarded as one of the most memorable and recognizable villains in cinema. Heath Ledger's portrayal of the Joker received critical acclaim, winning numerous posthumous awards for his performance, including the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor, a Golden Globe Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Motion Picture, the BAFTA Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role, the Saturn Award for Best Supporting Actor, a Screen Actors Guild Award for Outstanding Performance by a Male Actor in a Supporting Role, and a Best Actor International Award at the 2008 Australian Film Institute Awards.

"I can only speak superlatives of Ledger, who is mad-crazy-brilliant as the Joker", wrote Peter Travers of Rolling Stone, stating that the film is deeper than its predecessor, Batman Begins, with a "deft" script that refuses to scrutinize the Joker with popular psychology. Travers said Ledger moves the Joker away from Jack Nicholson's interpretation into darker territory and expresses his support for any potential campaign to have Ledger nominated for an Academy Award.

The late Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times stated that Heath Ledger's portrayal is a "key performance" and pondered whether he would become the first posthumous Academy Award-winning actor since Peter Finch in 1976.

Mark Dinning from Empire magazine called Ledger's performance "monumental" and wrote "The Dark Knight is Ledger's movie. It is a towering performance. ... A force of fucking nature". Filmmaker Kevin Smith commented on Ledger, calling his "incredible" performance "the most frightening, smart and well-played villains ever. Ever." Mark Lee, writing for The Daily Telegraph, commented that Ledger accomplished "a genuinely unsettling, brilliant nuanced portrait of evil". Tim Teeman commented for The Times that "Ledger is so terrifying and unpredictable that his very presence on screen makes you nervous." Total Film reviewed that Ledger is "burning brightly as he embodies an icon. ... This is the definitive Joker", calling the performance "a masterpiece". For The Hollywood Reporter, Kirk Honeycutt called Ledger's performance "a beauty." Entertainment Weekly put the film on its end-of-the-decade, "best-of" list, saying, "Every great hero needs a great villain. And in 2008, Christian Bale's Batman found his in Heath Ledger's demented dervish, the Joker." Emanuel Levy wrote Ledger "throws himself completely" into the role.

David Denby of The New Yorker magazine, otherwise critical of the film, praised Ledger's "sinister and frightening" performance, which he says is the film's one element of success. Denby called Ledger "mesmerizing" and said, "His performance is a heroic, unsettling final act: this young actor looked into the abyss." "It's just one of the most iconic movie performances of modern times," declared chief film critic of Variety Scott Foundas.

Film critics, co-stars Maggie Gyllenhaal and Michael Caine, and many of Ledger's colleagues in the film community joined Bale in calling for and predicting a nomination for the 2008 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in recognition of Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight.

Trivia

  • The movie was released after Heath Ledger's death in 2008. Following Ledger's death, The Dark Knight was dedicated to his memory and to his family. Ledger would posthumously win the Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor for his role as the Joker, which makes the Joker so far the only comic book character to ever win an Academy Award. The film's director Christopher Nolan received the award in his name.
  • Paul Bettany, Adrien Brody, Steve Carell, Sam Rockwell, Crispin Glover, Robin Williams, Lachy Hulme and Willem Dafoe were all considered for the role before Ledger was cast.
  • Heath Ledger's Joker was considered the most evil version of the Joker ever filmed. It’s actually worth noting Jack Nicholson’s Joker kills more people than Ledger's Joker. But most of Nicholson's killed are reported and happen offscreen while Ledger's kills are more twisted, brutal and onscreen.
  • Before filming the interrogation scene, Ledger told Christian Bale, who portrayed Batman, to hit him as hard as he could, as if Batman was really hitting The Joker.
  • Alongside Two-Face, the Joker was the only main antagonist in The Dark Knight Trilogy that had no affiliation with the League of Shadows. Ra's al Ghul was the former leader, Carmine Falcone was an associate, Scarecrow was an affiliate, Bane was defrocked and Talia al Ghul was a high-ranking member.
    • However, the Joker's actions were indirectly responsible for their later takeover of Gotham City in the next installment.
    • It is theorized that the Joker may be a rogue or, similarly to Bane, excommunicated member of the League of Shadows, due to his combat prowess, masterful intelligence and tactical skills, and his true identity being unknown, all similarities he shares with Bane.
  • Mark Hamill, no stranger to Joker, called Ledger's performance, "The most original (he) has ever seen since Hannibal Lecter in The Silence of the Lambs".
  • The scars on Joker's face were known as the Glasgow Smile Scars.
  • Heath Ledger directed both homemade videos that The Joker sends to GCN. The first video involving the fake Batman was done under writer, producer, and director Christopher Nolan's supervision. Nolan thought Ledger had done so well with that sequence, he felt there was no need for him to be there when it came time to film the scene where reporter Mike Engel reads The Joker's statement. He put his trust in Ledger and let him do whatever he wanted, ultimately pleased with the result after he'd seen the outcome.
  • Similar to Ra's al Ghul and Bane, the main antagonists of the trilogy's other installments, the Joker's real name was never revealed and was only known by his alias.
  • Elements of this Joker were later used in the creation of the version for the Flashpoint story arc. However, it should be noted that the latter version was depicted as a far more tragic character, being Martha Wayne, who had been driven completely insane after to her son, Bruce, was murdered by Joe Chill.
  • This is one of only three Joker incarnations whose backstory does not involve falling into a vat of chemicals and permanently being disfigured to resemble a clown, the other two being Arthur Fleck in Joker and Martha Wayne in the Flashpoint story arc.
  • When Heath Ledger portrayed the Joker in the film, he was 28 years old, being the second youngest actor to portray the character (the first being Cameron Monaghan, who played Jerome and Jeremiah Valeska in Gotham).
  • Before the premiere of the documentary I Am Heath Ledger, Ledger's sister Kate debunked the rumor that the role of the Joker contributed to his death, saying "Honestly, that's been the biggest thing for us as a family," "He had an amazing sense of humor and certainly playing the Joker, for him it was one big gag. He had so much fun doing that. It was actually the exact opposite. There was no doom and gloom. ... That was a shock to me that people even thought that, really." She also revealed he loved playing the Joker and that he planned to reprise the role. "He was a really happy person and he had huge plans for his future... I spoke to him the night before (he died) and we were laughing and joking. He was so proud of what he had done in Batman. And I know he had plans for another Batman. He loved working with Chris Nolan and Christian Bale and Gary Oldman. He just had the best time ever doing that film."
  • Whenever he removes his gloves except when he's disguised as a nurse, bits of his facial makeup can be seen on his hands.
  • The Joker is one of the two villains in The Dark Knight Trilogy who doesn’t die, along with Scarecrow.
  • The Joker has around 39 minutes of screen-time.
  • The Joker was originally set to appear in The Dark Knight Rises, in which he was supposed to appear without his makeup nor his purple clothes, as a prisoner of Blackgate, and, later as a free man following Bane's mutiny. Eventually, this was ultimately shelved by Christopher Nolan, feeling it would be disrespectful to Ledger's memory. According to Kate Ledger and Aaron Eckhart, Ledger was willing to reprise the role in the third film before his death.
