Top Ten Dark Knight Characters

I think by now most of us agree that The Dark Knight is a spectacular movie. One might ask the question, What makes The Dark Knight spectacular? Well, you can find my opinion to that question here. This list is dedicated to one of the many big reasons why The Dark Knight is an incredible movie, and that reason is the ell-acted characters behind the movie. Here’s my ten favorite.

!!! SPOILERS !!!

10. The Bank Manager

This aggressive bank manager runs a mob bank with an iron fist. He’s not afraid to kill any clowns (literally) who try to steal from him and his bosses. 

 

9. Coleman Reese

The Wayne Enterprises executive who knows who Batman is and eventually releases that the world needs him, luckily before he spills the beans.

 

8. Sal Maroni

The heir to the Falcone crime syndicate became too power hungry when he and his friends unwittingly hired The Joker to do their dirty work, not knowing what he was actually getting him self into.

 

7. Rachel Dawes

A  much more arresting Rachel Dawes than the first. Instead of just being a damsel in distress, she was able to hold her own when needed.

 

6. Lucius Fox

He is a comic relief character who plays a lot bigger part than in in the first. He can help Batman with any toy he needs and knows better than most the rue meaning of right and wrong.

 

5. Batman/Bruce Wayne

The ultimate good in a cruel world. So good that he’s will ing to take the blame for multiple murders in order to save the the people who hate him.

 

4. Jim Gordan

Commissioner Gordan is a brave and good officer, one of the few. He faked his death in order to stop the plaque that was spreading in gotham. A good man who would give his life to save the people he loves.

 

3. Alfred Pennyworth

A kind and intelligent butler whose always there to help the people he loves when they’re down. He’s played to perfection by Michael Caine and he is like a father to Bruce when he most certainly needs one.

 

2. Harvey “Two-Face” Dent

Mr. Dent represents the ultimate representation of man vs. self. In the beginning he is the definition of good, knowing farwell that Batman is more than just a vigilante, but a hero among men. Half way through he becomes a murderer in search of revenge who by the end of it all has Joker’s words coming out of his mouth.

 

1. (This must’ve been surprising) The Joker

The Joker is not just the greatest Dark Knight Character, but also the greatest character in film history. No explanation I give here will do the character so just go here. All I can say is that he’s intense and comically evil. He’s brilliantly made into the most iconic villain of all time in my opinion by the genius of an actor Heath Ledger. He’s pure evil, a masterpiece of a performance by a brilliant actor.

Top Ten Dark Knight Posters

The Dark Knight has been released now for almost a month and has made around $450,000,000. There was more hype for this movie than any movie in a long time and for once the movie was well worth the torturing wait. Everywhere you looked, you saw either an advertisement, a trailer, or a poster. This top ten list is a list of my favorite Dark Knight Posters, you’ve seen them all, but which one is your favorite. Find out which one is mine.

10. A basic poster that had a decently cool design.

9. Fun to look at, at the first time, but overly used.

8. I enjoy this poster alot and it never gets much recognition.

7. A neat design, but the idea could’ve made for a better poster.

6. I love this poster because its the only extreme close-up on the Joker’s face. I would’ve liked to see something more than just HA, though.

5. A very colorful, yet moody design.

4. An excellent poster. Simple, yet dark.

3. A very cool poster showing all three main characters in creative ways.

2. The original Dark Knight tag line poster is one to be remembered with its creative and grisly design.

P.S. The red letters under the the website name uncoded say: A TASTE FOR THE THEATRICAL

1. Some may disagree with my number one, but I think this poster perfectly shows The Joker’s insanity and lust for destruction. It’s intense and shows the realism of the now iconic villain.
