Joker The Dark Knight

Batman-Film „The Dark Knight“ so ein intensives Erlebnis ist. In einem Interview verriet Hauptdarsteller Christian Bale, wie weit Ledger ging. Der von Heath Ledger gespielte Joker im Film The Dark Knight, dem zweiten Teil der Dark Knight Trilogie, ist mit Sicherheit einer der faszinierendsten Bad Guys. The Joker ist eine fiktive Figur, die in Christopher Nolans Superheldenfilm The Dark Knight von zu sehen ist, der auf der gleichnamigen DC Comics-Figur und dem Superschurken basiert. Er wurde vom australischen Schauspieler Heath Ledger.

The clown mask-wearing robbers whittled down their own numbers within minutes in a series of calculated betrayals. Finally, only "Bozo" remained, who revealed himself as the Joker to the Manager of Gotham National Bank , who had earlier confronted the robbers with a shotgun.

In addition, largely because he couldn't resist appearing on-camera, Joker also deliberately unmasked himself in front of a surveillance camera and posed.

The Joker then escaped with the bank's cash in a yellow school bus, concealed his identity by driving within a convoy of other school buses, and also left the Bank Manager at the mercy of a gas grenade that was stuck in his mouth.

The Joker then unexpectedly performed a magic trick by making a pencil "disappear," embedded the pencil in the table, and shoved Gambol's man head-first into the pencil where it indeed disappeared inside the man's head, which instantly killed him.

The Joker also mentioned that his suit wasn't cheap and that they ought to know that since they bought it, which meant that he had used the money that he stole at the start of the film and bought his suit.

Joker then proposed that it was Batman's interference that had resulted in idealistic leaders like Harvey Dent rising in popularity, and offered his services to kill him for half of all the money that Lau, an illegitimate Chinese accountant, took away from Gotham in order for safe keeping.

Joker also warned the Mob that Lau would betray them if he was arrested and claimed to know a squealer when he saw one.

While the Bratva mobster, The Chechen , and Maroni were interested, Gambol, angered by the Joker's lack of respect, attempted to attack him, which forced Joker to reveal his insurance policy: several grenades that were hidden under his coat and allowed him to make a quick escape.

Frustrated, Gambol then put a bounty on Joker. The Joker later took revenge that night and had his men come to Gambol, who then claimed to have killed the Joker.

In a bit of unintended tragic irony that regarded the fate of his actor, the Joker's 'dead' body was brought inside in a garbage bag before he attacked Gambol and told him the origin of his mouth scars as a way of psychological torture and intimidation.

Then, when Gambol was most terrified and shaken, Joker killed him with his knife. Then, with the remains of Gambol's men, who were overpowered and at his mercy, Joker took a pool stick, broke it in half, which made it spear-like, and said that there was only one spot open at the moment in order to join his "team", threw the piece of sharp stick at the middle of Gambol's scared men and has his gang, which was made up mostly of mentally-ill and unstable vicious crooks who escaped from Arkham Asylum who seemed to have taken the Joker as their leader, made Gambol's men fight to the death with the stick until only one was left, and advised them to "make it fast".

Eventually, after he realized that Batman had retrieved Lau from Hong Kong and that the police had struck a deal with Lau to testify against the Mob, Maroni and the Chechen relented and finally hired Joker to kill Batman.

The Joker first kidnapped a Batman Impersonator, filmed his murder, and hung the body, complete with white make-up and Joker Scars, outside Mayor Anthony Garcia 's Office.

In the murder tape that he sent to the Media, the Joker viciously mocked Brian Douglas Batman Impersonator as well as terrorized him to the point of leaving him absolutely frozen and weeping, as well as taunted his beliefs and his actions.

Then, when he has finished humiliating and terrifying Douglas, Joker gave Gotham an ultimatum: Batman must take off his mask and turn himself in to the authorities, and, every day that Batman refused to do so, he would murder innocent people day after day.

As a result of Batman not turning himself in, the first major victims were Janet Surillo , the judge who presided over Dent's indictments, and Commissioner Gillian B.

Loeb , the former via car-bomb and the latter via acid into the Commissioner's scotch, respectively. The Joker talking to Rachel Dawes after crashing the fundraiser thrown by Bruce Wayne at his penthouse.

Later, the Joker and his gang stormed a fundraiser at Bruce Wayne's Penthouse in order to kill Harvey. Joker then attempted to threaten a not-intimidated guest whom he noted bored a resemblance to his own hated father, to which Rachel Dawes then intervened.

The Joker then told Rachel another chilling story about where he got his Glasgow Smile: That time, the Joker had a wife who thought that he did not smile much.

Then, his wife got a Glasgow Smile, and, to show that he still loved her and did not care about her Glasgow Smile, self-inflicted his Glasgow Smile onto himself, to which his wife was disgusted by, and left him.

The Joker then finished the story and said that he saw the funny side to it: he was always smiling. Suddenly, Batman appeared and fought with Joker.

Joker only managed to escape by throwing Rachel out of a window, who Batman then leaped after and saved. That encounter also led Joker to initially suspect that Batman's true identity was Harvey Dent.

The killings then continued with two innocents and an attempt on the Mayor's life at a Memorial for Commissioner Loeb. The Joker appeared in public without his makeup, impersonated one of the Honor Guards, as well as had most of his gang impersonate the rest of them.

Gordon was struck in the back after he willfully leaped in front of Garcia, in order to fake his death to avoid any future attempt by the Joker of attacking him with his family at home.

As a result of that, Batman told Dent to call a press conference so that he could reveal his identity and stop the killings.

In a surprise move, Dent instead claimed to be Batman himself and was subsequently arrested. While Dent was transported, the Joker and his gang attacked the caravan of police vehicles and attempted to kill Dent with a machine pistol , a shotgun , and even a rocket-propelled grenade.

Joker and his men managed to destroy nearly all of the GCPD vehicles in the convoy, but, when he attempted to destroy the armored car that carried Dent, Batman intercepted his RPG, at the cost of the Batmobile Batman detached part of it in the form of the Batpod.

Joker then prepared to unmask Batman but Gordon, who was newly resurrected from his hoaxed death, stepped behind him, held a shotgun to his head and said: "We got you, you son of a bitch.

Joker also did a sarcastic clap for the newly-promoted Commissioner Gordon. With the Joker in custody, Gordon and Batman believed that his madness was over but became alarmed when they were informed that Harvey was missing.

Desperate, Gordon let Batman interrogate Joker for information, but Joker seemed unshaken by the pain. Instead, Joker gleefully told Batman his view of people as selfish and violent, who only needed a little pressure before they descended into madness.

Joker also admitted that he could never kill Batman and considered him his only equal. Harvey's kidnapping was part of a test to see if Batman would save him or Rachel, whom Joker could tell that Batman cared for.

The Joker then willingly told Batman where Harvey and Rachel were located; however, Joker knew that Batman would choose Rachel and tricked Batman into saving Harvey instead and gave him Harvey's location and told him that it was Rachel's, and vice versa.

After most of the police were gone, the Joker took his guard hostage and escaped by detonating a phone-activated bomb that he had surgically planted in the stomach of Kilson who was arrested with him, with Lau in tow.

After he failed to save Rachel, Gordon came to the realization that it was a setup and that Joker had planned to get caught in order to get Lau.

Harvey and Rachel each awoke tied to chairs with barrels of explosive material that surrounded them and a speakerphone that was hooked up to the other's location.

Rachel then confessed her love for Harvey and agreed to marry him. Harvey fell on the floor and his left side was then completely immersed in Turpentine.

Batman arrived, but found Harvey instead of Rachel. Batman then realized that Joker had lied about Rachel and Harvey's whereabouts in order to further crush Batman's morale.

Batman then rescued Harvey as the building exploded and Harvey's face was badly burned, while Gordon was unable to rescue Rachel before the explosion.

At the hospital, Harvey was driven to madness over the loss of Rachel and blamed Batman, Gordon, and Joker. That act caused Maroni to tell Gordon the Joker's location and found Joker and his craziness "too much" for business.

The Joker then made a call to a news program where Coleman Reese threatened to go public on the news with information about Batman's identity.

Reese was interrupted by the Joker who then stated that he had changed his mind and believed that Gotham would to be too boring without Batman.

To in order to "give others the fun," Joker then threatened that if someone didn't kill Reese in sixty minutes, he would blow up a hospital.

Gordon then abandoned his ambush on the Joker and focused on evacuating all of Gotham's Hospitals. During the mass evacuation, the Joker disguised himself as a nurse and entered the hospital room of Harvey.

The Joker then introduced Harvey to his view of the world that his time in Gotham had introduced him to, that people, or "schemers" as he called them, were the truest form of evil in the world, as it was them who laid out the plans of society, including when human lives were expendable.

In order to prove his argument, Joker pointed out that if his threats were aimed at 'gangbangers' or 'soldiers', then people wouldn't really care as society trained them to see the death of such people as acceptable.

After he gave Harvey a gun, the Joker advised Harvey to break away from the law that failed him and turn to chaos, which the Joker described as the only truly fair system, as the fate of everyone would be only decided by chance, without the interference of the flawed laws of Man.

Harvey then responded by flipping his coin to decide Joker's fate, which gave him the same chance that Rachel had.

Soon after Harvey left, Joker detonated Gotham General Hospital, skipped merrily away down the street, before he paused and noticed that most of the explosives hadn't gone off, before he tapped the detonator again, which then exploded the remaining explosives.

Joker and his men then stole one of the nearby evacuation buses and kidnapped the TV reporter and his crew who were inside. Batman discovered not only the Joker's location at an unfinished skyscraper, but that the majority of his "gang" were actually the people that he had kidnapped earlier, who wore clown-masks with unloaded guns that were taped to their hands, and that the people, who were dressed as hostages were the actual criminals.

Eventually, Batman confronted Joker and, after the mad clown sarcastically claimed that he's "so thrilled" that Batman made it, initiated a final battle between them with Joker using a metal bar and a knife , also siccing Rottweilers that formerly belonged to the Chechen on Batman to gain more of an advantage.

Joker managed to get the upper hand, including temporarily disabling his vision, and pinned Batman under a scaffold.

The Joker then gets the drop on him and puts a knife in his face and tells him might be his origin story. Whether this or the tale he tells Rachel, is the real story, doesn't really matter.

It is a stunning bit of acting, during which Heath Ledger utters what are perhaps two of the most famous lines in the Batman film franchise :.

By Brian Cronin. Updated August 20, The Joker replies:. Everything burns! You know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars.

I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just DO things. Guns are too quick. So in a way, I know your friends better than you ever did.

Would you like to know which of them were cowards? They need you right now, but when they don't, they'll cast you out, like a leper! You see, their morals, their code, it's a bad joke.

Dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you.

Or perhaps he had escaped. Nobody was really sure. As a starting actor, Heath Ledger did not attach himself seriously to the roles he was playing.

This changed, however, when at age 22 he started to watch some of his films. Realizing that they were movies he himself might not actually have wanted to see, it made him more cautious and respectful towards his professional choices.

Director Christopher Nolan had met with Ledger over the years for different roles. While meeting for the part of Batman in Batman Begins , Ledger explained that he was not interested in working on such a film.

I couldn't pull it off and there are other people who can perfectly, but I just couldn't take myself seriously. Heath Ledger described the Joker as a "psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy".

Ledger and Christopher Nolan both explained seeing eye-to-eye on the Joker's appearance in the film, sharing common reference points for who the character was going to be.

Wearing the character's traditional color palette, the Joker is dressed in a thin tie and green waistcoat , topped by a purple overcoat, [17] stylistic choices that hearken back to the era of New Romanticism.

The Joker's hair is stringy, unkempt, and dyed green. His face is covered in a cracked and runny layer of white clown makeup, with his sunken eyes thickly rimmed in black.

A sloppy red grin is painted on the Glasgow smile beneath the makeup, extending from the mouth to the cheeks. The character's mannerisms carry a quality of unpredictability.

His voice frequently shifts in pitch, so that he speaks his dialogue hitting higher notes, followed by an immediate lower voice capable of landing two octaves below.

Nolan acknowledges this unpredictability to be part of the character's slinky physical movements as well, saying that Ledger's performance "[is] always a surprise".

Steve Alexander, Heath Ledger's agent, said the actor had a " pay-or-play " deal on The Dark Knight , "so he felt free to do whatever he wanted to do as the Joker, no matter how crazy.

During a span of six weeks, Ledger "locked" himself away in a hotel room, forming a character diary and experimenting with voices.

Christopher Hooton , writing for The Independent , said that the 'Joker journal' had several stills from Stanley Kubrick 's film A Clockwork Orange , joker cards , photos of hyenas, unhinged clown makeup and the word "chaos" highlighted in green.

Furthermore, it contains a list of things the Joker would find funny, such as AIDS , landmines , and geniuses suffering brain damage.

Ledger highlighted the importance of finding an iconic voice and laugh for the character, relating the voice as "the key to the demented killer".

The filmmaker also acknowledged that the voice performance was based on the Alexander technique. Ledger developed the Joker's voice and mannerisms slowly over time and during camera tests.

In hair and makeup tests, Ledger would start exploring the movements of the character. While test recording without sound, he shared his take on the Joker's voice and physicality, and "in that way he sort of sneaked upon it".

The actor developed the physical appearance of the character, being "very involved" with the painting of his face, says prosthetic supervisor Conor O'Sullivan.

Ledger also got to choose the Joker's weapon among different rubber knives, and he worked closely with costume designer Lindy Hemming on deciding the look for the character.

Nolan noted, "We gave a Francis Bacon spin to [his face]. This corruption, this decay in the texture of the look itself.

It's grubby. You can almost imagine what he smells like. She tried to present a backstory for the character "that he really doesn't look after himself".

Application of Heath Ledger's makeup was done with the actor scrunching special facial expressions.

Caglione called the application work "a dance". This technique created facial textures for white paint.

As Ledger closed his eyes tight, Caglione put on the black makeup. Then, water was sprayed over the eyes and the actor would squeeze his eyes and shake his head to create imperfections in the makeup.

To get in character for filming, Ledger used his Joker diary which he carried with him on set. Between takes, Ledger would stay in costume and makeup just being himself.

The actor would goof around, skateboarding while in his Joker costume on set, and smoking cigarettes. John Caglione described Ledger as helping others around to relax, never letting "the intense nature of the roles overwhelm him".

The first sequence shot was the film's IMAX opening, the "prologue". As the Joker wears a mask through the scene with minimal dialogue, Nolan set the prologue first in the schedule because he wanted to put off performance worries, allowing Ledger to enjoy that relief.

The interrogation scene between Batman and the Joker was the first scene shot with Ledger really showing the full performance altogether.

During rehearsals, the actors kept things loose and improvisational, saving for the actual shoot. Bale confirmed that Ledger did not perform the Joker's voice during rehearsals, waiting to get in character when the cameras rolled.

Ledger was allowed to shoot and direct the threat videos the Joker sends out as warnings. Each take Ledger made was different from the last.

Nolan was impressed enough with the first video shoot that he chose to not be present when Ledger shot the video with a kidnapped reporter Anthony Michael Hall.

Heath Ledger always showed up early onset. The first thing he would do, according to Caglione, was to give bear hugs to cast and crew members around the set.

On 22 January , after he had completed filming The Dark Knight , Ledger died, aged 28, of an accidental prescription drug overdose , leading to intense press attention and memorial tributes.

Ledger's death affected the marketing campaign for The Dark Knight [40] and also both the production and marketing of Terry Gilliam 's film The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus ; both Nolan and Gilliam celebrated and paid tribute to Ledger's work in these films.

However, with the first trailer released in , the film and its portrayal of the Joker received very positive response from audiences and entertainment industry professionals alike.

Mexican filmmaker Guillermo del Toro gushed of his impression for Ledger's performance, finding it "really, really edgy and scary".

Loeb, who had been critical of Jack Nicholson 's portrayal of the Joker in 's Batman , expressed his excitement for Ledger's interpretation, saying the casting felt "just about right.

I eagerly anticipate more! 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 It is a towering performance.

A force of nature". Tim Teeman commented for The Times that "Ledger is so terrifying and unpredictable that his very presence on screen makes you nervous.

This is the definitive Joker", calling the performance "a masterpiece". Denby called Ledger "mesmerising" and said, "His performance is a heroic, unsettling final act: this young actor looked into the abyss.

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 Academy Award for Best Supporting Actor in recognition of Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight.

He then abducts Alfred after apparently killing him with a hammer. The Joker then confronted Harley Quinn and locked her in a dungeon full of skeletons with Harley Quinn outfits that resemble other incarnations of the character.

It is unknown whether the Joker is lying to emotionally abuse Harley, or has in fact had many female accomplices before the current Harley.

The Joker goes on to confront other members of the Bat family individually, such as staging a wedding with Batgirl and capturing Robin, as well as the other members, presenting each with a silver tray with unknown contents, and flaunting a small book he has written that contains the secrets of the Bat family.

Later on, the Joker lures Batman to Arkham Asylum, in which Batman is invited to claim his "throne" which in reality is an electric chair.

The Joker himself takes the role of court jester. Batman is sent to sleep and awakens at a dinner table in a cave, with the other members of the Bat family bound and hooded around the table.

The Joker presents the "meal", taking the bags off the heads of each of the Bat family, revealing them wrapped in bloody bandages.

He has a Jokerized Alfred "serve" the family and reveal the contents under the silver platters; the face of every member.

The Joker reveals the reason he removed his own face, which was to prove a point: no matter how deep you go, behind the Joker's face is more Joker, and he says the same for Batman, that behind his mask, he is the same person underneath.

The Joker says no matter how deep you go with the other members of the family, you'll only find weaker people, nothing like the face they put on to the public.

The Joker ends up having the entire room set on fire, however Batman releases the pipes above to douse the fire.

The Joker, seeing his plan failing, flees, and Batman chases after him. The two-headed lion cub explodes whilst Batman is away, releasing Joker toxin and driving the members of the Bat family to fight amongst each other in madness.

The Joker attempts to attack Batman with an axe, Batman counters and the two begin to fight. The Joker almost falls off a waterfall, however Batman stops him, claiming that he wants to be responsible for whatever happens to the Joker.

The two continue to fight, the Joker preparing to use a crowbar against Batman a nod to how he killed Jason Todd , but is pinned to a wall.

The Joker uses his acid flower to blind Batman temporarily, but Batman catches the Joker again. Batman starts to intimidate the Joker by saying how in the year the Joker was absent, Batman deduced who he was.

The Joker becomes afraid, and uses his joy buzzer to electrocute Batman, and then dives off the waterfall, his face becoming detached and flying off as the Joker plummets to his apparent demise.

Batman finds the small book the Joker was always bragging about, and checks its pages, only to find they are all blank.

Bruce is later seen caring for Alfred in Wayne Manor, whilst trying to arrange a meeting with the Bat family. However, none of them wish to turn up, showing the Joker's plan had worked, as now there was an awkwardness amongst the members.

Bruce reveals to Alfred that he once visited the Joker in Arkham, as Bruce Wayne, and showed the Joker a joker card that had been mysteriously left in the Batcave.

The Joker looked at Bruce, and at the card, and clearly identifies the situation, but shows no reaction, choosing to ignore it entirely. It is from this Bruce deduces that the Joker does not care who Batman is; he only cares for Batman, and that to acknowledge Batman's true identity would spoil the Joker's "fun".

Bruce is later seen in the Batcave, with the Joker's profile on-screen, with "Identity Unknown" displayed, meaning Batman did not know who the Joker was.

The computer reveals a new element in the Joker toxin, "hahnium" Ha. Following an attack by Scarecrow, Batman recovers in his new base of operations; a safehouse seized from the Court of Owls.

Suddenly, Batman is attacked by Wonder Woman, who is determined to kill him. Batman instructs Alfred to enact plan "Fenrir", a powerful, robotic-armor designed by Batman to do battle with the entire Justice League, flanked by a gas attack that evacuates Gotham City's citizens from the area.

When Batman asks who has manipulated the League into killing Batman, Superman's mouth stretches into a wide-grin as he and the subdued league members begin to laugh.

Batman battles the merciless Superman, finally subduing him with Kryptonite-laced gum. The League is revealed to be infected with a more powerful strain of Joker toxin, customized to each individual.

Batman visits the Joker's former cell at the abandoned Arkham Asylum, where he meets with Eric Border, an orderly at the new Arkham Manor.

Border states that he has only tried to help the city and Batman since arriving there, but he sees now that Batman cannot be helped.

Batman is locked in Joker's cell, while Border removes his makeup to reveal himself as The Joker, having been using muscle relaxants and drugs to mask his appearance while revealing the name "Eric Border" is a word play for "Eternal Jester" The Joker confesses he now finds Batman boring following their final encounter, and now intends to bring their relationship to a permanent end.

Batman is incapacitated by a paralytic gas, as the Joker announces that he will be left helpless as his plan truly begins. Batman eventually recovers from his paralysis to find that the Joker has released an incurable airborne pathogen throughout Gotham, transmitted by laughter, that makes the victim look like the Joker, and turns feelings of love into violent hatred, triggering mass chaos.

Batman travels to Gotham Presbyterian hospital to research the first recorded infection, but finds an infected Joe Chill, and a recreation of the night Batman's parents died, revealing the Joker knows his identity.

Meanwhile, James Gordon researches the hospital and finds images appearing to be the Joker, taken decades before the Joker's first encounter with Batman.

The Joker attacks Gordon, who responds by shooting the Joker dead. While Gordon phones Batman to relay the news, the Joker rises up and incapacitates Gordon.

Batman finds Gordon dying, with an axe lodged in his chest. Gordon is revealed to be infected, and he suddenly attacks Batman, but is subdued by Alfred's daughter, Julia.

With Nightwing's aid, Batman deduces that the Joker is using a serum capable of healing him from fatal damage, and that the virus contains the serum's complete inverse.

They also discover that Paul Dekker, a crazed genius in regenerative technologies, was released into Border's custody a year earlier. Batman confronts Dekker, who reveals that he was only able to develop the healing serum and virus using a rare, natural component found in the Joker's spine; Dekker believes the Joker is immortal.

He injects himself with a serum given to him by the Joker, believing it will make him immortal, but it kills him.

Julia informs Batman that a search has revealed images of the Joker tracing back through centuries of Gotham's history, and that if a cure to the virus is not found, the infected will die within 24 hours.

Desperate, Batman turns to the Court of Owls for aid. The Court refuses to aid Batman, but he confronts their Talon assassin Uriah Boone, who has survived since the beginning of Gotham, about the Joker's supposed immortality.

Meanwhile, the Joker uses his regenerative abilities to survive the long swim into the Batcave and its defenses.

Alfred attempts to subdue the villain, but the Joker chops off his hand before absconding with Batman's crime-fighting trophies.

Joker then leads a parade through the city, leading floats bearing the trophies through the infected citizens.

Batman rallies his family and several of his greatest foes to band together against the Joker to save the city they all share.

Seeing their combined efforts, the Joker prepares for his "best trick of all". Batman battles the Joker, but he and his allies are subdued by Joker's lethal gas.

The Joker removes Batman's mask, revealing that Nightwing was pretending to be Batman as a distraction, while the real Batman searched the cave system beneath Gotham that the Joker would have traveled after falling off the cliff during the end of "Death of the Family".

Batman finds a cave rigged with Joker's explosives and housing a pool of Dionesum, the healing fluid that grants Joker his regenerative abilities.

The Joker confronts Batman and detonates the explosives. When the Joker attempts to stab a subdued Batman, he is pushed into the path of a falling stalactite which breaks his back.

As he desperately tries to crawl to the Dioneusum to heal, he is restrained by Batman until the cave roof falls into the pool, destroying it.

Resigned to their fate, Batman reveals that the Joker has failed, as Batman gave his allies small doses of Dionesum, to protect them from Joker's poison, while he has recovered a larger amount of the Dionesum to Julia to cure the citywide plague.

In the aftermath, Alfred refuses to have his hand reattached, asserting that he no longer has someone to tend to, while Dionesum recovered by Batman and given to Julia, allows the city to be cured of Joker's plague.

Discussing Batman's final letter, Alfred asserts that the story of Batman would always end in tragedy, and that while Batman had the resources to be immortal and escape death as the Joker offered, he was determined to only live in the time he had.

The note is shown, bearing only the word "Ha". It is revealed that Bruce Wayne had been exposed to the Dionesium pool being restored to life with no memory of his previous life.

While sitting on a park bench with everything but being the Batman revealed to him by Alfred Pennyworth he meets a stranger who smiles a lot It is heavily implied that this is the Joker who has no real memory of who either of them was.

While this is all going on Gotham in under siege by an onslaught created by a criminal known as Mister Bloom who Batman had faced before.

Thanks to his is talk with the smiling stranger Bruce Wayne realizes he is Batman and forces Alfred Pennyworth to restore to use a machine Batman designed to turn a clone of him into the next Batman.

During an investigation into Batman's activities, Hal Jordan and Duke Thomas discovered and accidently released him, leading to a brief fight between the trio.

Joker revealed that Batman was investigating metals, specifically Dionesium and Nth Metal, and he needed to be stopped before it was too late.

He escaped shortlay before Batman could arrive. The Joker commits crimes with countless "comedic" weapons such as razor-sharp playing cards , acid flowers , cyanide pies and lethal electric joy buzzers and Joker Venom , also called "Happy Gas" by the Joker, a deadly poison that infects his victims with a ghoulish rictus grin as they die while laughing uncontrollably.

This venom comes in many forms, from gas to darts to liquid poison, and has been his primary calling card from his first appearance till the present; he is immune to it.

He even created his own utility belt to contain all his weapons. The Joker is also very skilled in the fields of chemistry, genetics, and nuclear engineering.

In a miniseries featuring Tim Drake , the third Robin, he kidnaps a computer genius, admitting that he doesn't know much about computers.

In future issues, he is shown as very computer literate, presumably meaning that he researched the subject. The Joker has moderate skill in hand to hand combat.

Over the years it has been shown that although Batman is stronger, the Joker is faster and more agile. The Joker has been known to be able to hold his own in hand-to-hand combat against Batman, however every time he is subdued by Batman, it is through physical force.

However, the Joker has proven to be very skilled in the area of martial arts as well, this being proven when beating Batman once in a fight without "cheating".

However, this skill in fighting can also be questioned, due to different artists having different interpretations of the Joker.

In some cases, he is so weak, that Batman can take him down with a single punch, whilst in other cases, he has proven to be more than a match for the Dark Knight.

The Joker has cheated death numerous times, even in seemingly inescapable and lethal situations. Though he has been seen caught in explosions, been shot repeatedly, dropped from heights, electrocuted, etc.

Basically, the Joker's most powerful weapon is his mind and he is a cunning and manipulative intellect. Over several decades there have been a variety of depictions and possibilities regarding the Joker's apparent insanity, of which the following are a sampling:.

Grant Morrison's graphic novel Arkham Asylum suggests that the Joker's mental state is in fact a previously unprecedented form of "super-sanity," a form of ultra-sensory perception.

It also suggests that he has no true personality of his own, that on any given day he can be a harmless clown or a vicious killer, depending on which would benefit him the most thus explaining the two very different interpretations of the character that have developed over the decades; see below.

Later, during the Knightfall saga, after Scarecrow and the Joker team up and kidnap the mayor of Gotham City, Scarecrow turns on the Joker and uses his fear gas to see what Joker is afraid of.

To Scarecrow's surprise, the gas has no effect on Joker, who in turn beats him with a chair. In Morrison's JLA title, the Martian Manhunter rewires his own brain in order to think like the Joker, and later briefly rewires the Joker's brain to create momentary "sanity".

In those few moments, the Joker seems to regret his various murders and wishes to reevaluate his life.

He is returned to his usual self soon afterward. Various DC Comics Who's Who publications state that due to his level of insanity, at times the Joker manifests a degree of superhuman strength.

In an alternate depiction of the Joker called Elseworlds: Distant Fires , the Joker is rendered sane by a nuclear war that deprives all super beings of their powers.

In Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight , the Joker became sane when Batman put him in one of Ra's al Ghul 's Lazarus Pits after being shot, a reversal of the insanity which may come after experiencing such rejuvenation.

However, the sanity, like the more commonplace insanity, was only temporary, and soon the Joker was back to his normal self.

It is to be noted that during the brief moments of sanity, the Joker expressed regret for all the crimes that he had committed and begged for forgiveness.

The character is sometimes portrayed as having a heightened sense of self-awareness that other characters do not, such as being aware of being in a comic book.

This fourth wall awareness also seems to carry over to Batman: The Animated Series. The Joker is the only character to talk directly into the "camera" such as in Joker's Wild , where he says "Don't try this at home, kids!

The only one who should be aware of such events is Access who fixed these errors in dimensional overlap.

From the media, to the films and his relationship with the Dark Knight, the Joker's personality could be the obvious. The Joker is a homicidal, psychopathic, ruthless, sadistic, maniacal, lunatic, manipulative, intelligent and diabolical master criminal who wants nothing but chaos and anarchy wherever he goes, as well as reveling in the suffering of others.

In most speaking roles, the Joker is often given a high-pitched, comical, bouncy, silly, and over-the-top voice that occasionally stoops down to a slight growl, in accordance to his clown-like appearance and maniacal personality, with the only known exceptions being his appearances in Under the Red Hood and the Tim Burton Batman film, both of which give him a comparatively deeper, though still humorous voice.

In several sources, Joker's infamous brutality and insane nature was such that the Gotham criminal element feared him far more than even Batman himself, citing that while Batman was merely scary, Joker was downright terrifying and was even willing to inform Batman of his location just to get him off the streets.

His malevolent, sadistic sense of humor and psychopathic tendency of murdering whoever he wants to depicts him as Batman's greatest foe and not even Poison Ivy or even Two-Face could possibly beat the Joker.

The Joker is a genius but uses his intelligence for evil schemes in Gotham. However, he does not have any plan to kill Batman because he is "just so much fun" because he always plays his little "games".

The Joker also likes to corrupt his enemies in various media and that is perfectly shown in the Dark Knight movie, when he manipulated Harvey Dent into getting revenge on those who were involved in Rachael's death just so that he can pledge more anarchy.

In the Dark Knight Trilogy and the Batman Arkhamverse, there are two personality sides of the Joker-in the Dark Knight, his diabolically devious side is shown and in the Arkhamverse, his psychopathically ruthless side is shown but in both trilogies, the Joker is sadistic, evil, maniacal, chaotic, ruthless, murderous and rather cunning in his behavior.

He has some on and off alliances and on and off rivalries with Batman's villains, such as Two-Face, Penguin, Catwoman etc.

The Joker has a tendency of cheating death and escaping Arkham Asylum in order to create more chaos.

Joker then prepared to unmask Batman but Gordon, who was newly resurrected from his hoaxed death, stepped behind him, held a shotgun to his head and said: "We got you, you son of a bitch.

Joker also did a sarcastic clap for the newly-promoted Commissioner Gordon. With the Joker in custody, Gordon and Batman believed that his madness was over but became alarmed when they were informed that Harvey was missing.

Desperate, Gordon let Batman interrogate Joker for information, but Joker seemed unshaken by the pain. Instead, Joker gleefully told Batman his view of people as selfish and violent, who only needed a little pressure before they descended into madness.

Joker also admitted that he could never kill Batman and considered him his only equal. Harvey's kidnapping was part of a test to see if Batman would save him or Rachel, whom Joker could tell that Batman cared for.

The Joker then willingly told Batman where Harvey and Rachel were located; however, Joker knew that Batman would choose Rachel and tricked Batman into saving Harvey instead and gave him Harvey's location and told him that it was Rachel's, and vice versa.

After most of the police were gone, the Joker took his guard hostage and escaped by detonating a phone-activated bomb that he had surgically planted in the stomach of Kilson who was arrested with him, with Lau in tow.

After he failed to save Rachel, Gordon came to the realization that it was a setup and that Joker had planned to get caught in order to get Lau.

Harvey and Rachel each awoke tied to chairs with barrels of explosive material that surrounded them and a speakerphone that was hooked up to the other's location.

Rachel then confessed her love for Harvey and agreed to marry him. Harvey fell on the floor and his left side was then completely immersed in Turpentine.

Batman arrived, but found Harvey instead of Rachel. Batman then realized that Joker had lied about Rachel and Harvey's whereabouts in order to further crush Batman's morale.

Batman then rescued Harvey as the building exploded and Harvey's face was badly burned, while Gordon was unable to rescue Rachel before the explosion.

At the hospital, Harvey was driven to madness over the loss of Rachel and blamed Batman, Gordon, and Joker. That act caused Maroni to tell Gordon the Joker's location and found Joker and his craziness "too much" for business.

The Joker then made a call to a news program where Coleman Reese threatened to go public on the news with information about Batman's identity.

Reese was interrupted by the Joker who then stated that he had changed his mind and believed that Gotham would to be too boring without Batman.

To in order to "give others the fun," Joker then threatened that if someone didn't kill Reese in sixty minutes, he would blow up a hospital.

Gordon then abandoned his ambush on the Joker and focused on evacuating all of Gotham's Hospitals. During the mass evacuation, the Joker disguised himself as a nurse and entered the hospital room of Harvey.

The Joker then introduced Harvey to his view of the world that his time in Gotham had introduced him to, that people, or "schemers" as he called them, were the truest form of evil in the world, as it was them who laid out the plans of society, including when human lives were expendable.

In order to prove his argument, Joker pointed out that if his threats were aimed at 'gangbangers' or 'soldiers', then people wouldn't really care as society trained them to see the death of such people as acceptable.

After he gave Harvey a gun, the Joker advised Harvey to break away from the law that failed him and turn to chaos, which the Joker described as the only truly fair system, as the fate of everyone would be only decided by chance, without the interference of the flawed laws of Man.

Harvey then responded by flipping his coin to decide Joker's fate, which gave him the same chance that Rachel had.

Soon after Harvey left, Joker detonated Gotham General Hospital, skipped merrily away down the street, before he paused and noticed that most of the explosives hadn't gone off, before he tapped the detonator again, which then exploded the remaining explosives.

Joker and his men then stole one of the nearby evacuation buses and kidnapped the TV reporter and his crew who were inside.

Batman discovered not only the Joker's location at an unfinished skyscraper, but that the majority of his "gang" were actually the people that he had kidnapped earlier, who wore clown-masks with unloaded guns that were taped to their hands, and that the people, who were dressed as hostages were the actual criminals.

Eventually, Batman confronted Joker and, after the mad clown sarcastically claimed that he's "so thrilled" that Batman made it, initiated a final battle between them with Joker using a metal bar and a knife , also siccing Rottweilers that formerly belonged to the Chechen on Batman to gain more of an advantage.

Joker managed to get the upper hand, including temporarily disabling his vision, and pinned Batman under a scaffold. He then gleefully waited as the ferry's deadline neared, and was visibly disappointed when both groups of passengers refused to kill the other in order to save themselves: The civilians had voted to blow up the other ferry but could not bring themselves to actually do so, while Ginty stepped forward and, after he took the detonator, threw it out of a window, and said that the cops should have done that from the start.

As the deadline passed, Batman asked Joker if he was trying to prove that everyone was as ugly as him deep down and bluntly informed him that he was alone in both his corruption and insanity.

Before he could detonate both ferries, Batman knocked the detonator out of Joker's hand with his shooting wrist-blades, threw him over the edge, and also cited right before he threw him off, in reference to Joker's scar stories, that he knew how he got his other scars.

The Joker then laughed hysterically as he fell to his death, but Batman, who refused to kill him, instead caught him with his Grapple Gun and left him hanging for the GCPD to capture.

Though the Joker was neither seen nor mentioned, his prediction of the citizens of Gotham was proven correct as Gotham shunned Batman in the wake of Harvey's death.

Joker's prediction about civilized people's code being a 'bad joke' was also proven true, as Gotham fell into chaos in the wake of Bane 's 'liberation', and the citizens 'eat each other' as he had predicted, by way of homes being looted and Scarecrow's Kangaroo Court.

Heath Ledger's name was seen on the first poster for The Dark Knight Rises, so it could be assumed he was meant to be in the film portraying The Joker, prior to his death.

Joker subscribed to a morally nihilistic mindset he even briefly paraphrased German Philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche when he stated to the Bank Manager what he "believed" in and was obsessed with the limits of morality, while he also was described as having "zero empathy;" the two may have came together that reflected the Joker's doubts about the depths of human morality, based on his belief that "When the chips are down; these civilized people, they'll eat each other.

A similar display of his masochistic nature and his immunity to pain was demonstrated when Rachel Dawes, in an attempt to defend herself shortly after Joker gave his second "scar story," gave him a quick knee-jab into his groin, he laughed it off and then admitted that he "liked" the fact that she had a "little fight" in her while he approached her.

Joker then mocked him by making noises similar to that of someone being electrocuted, before he spit on him and resorted to his attempt at removing Batman's Mask himself.

That, along with the same henchman, who was later revealed to have had a wired bomb that was surgically implanted inside him, showed that Joker had no problems inflicting pain upon people who worked for him.

Along with being extremely sadistic through psychological torture, physical pain, and intimidation, the Joker also seemed to have no care for his own safety or survival, such as when he was told Batman to run him over with the Batpod as well as briefly cursed under his breath when Batman decided to crash the Batpod instead of running him over , and when Batman threw him off the skyscraper to his supposed death and did nothing but laugh both was due to the Joker believing that he would 'win' by provoking Batman into proving him right by forcing the Dark Knight to commit murder.

Joker seemed genuinely upset when Batman didn't kill him, to the point where he admitted his defeat and referred to Batman as "incorruptible" after their last fight.

Similarly, when Gambol attempted to have the Joker killed during a Mob meeting, Joker revealed that he had wired himself with explosives and anticipated the possibility that he'd be gunned down during that meeting.

During his interrogation at the hands of Batman, while he taunted him about how the latter had "nothing" at his disposal to break him, Joker strongly implied that Batman's only option for dealing with him was to murder him.

That proved that Joker absolutely didn't care about himself and his life at all, only his desire to spread chaos and anarchy and proving that all men could be corrupted if they were pushed hard enough.

The most notable example in his utter lack of self-preservation was when, at the hospital, when Joker gave Harvey a gun, forcibly pointed it at his head, and gambled his life on the chance that Harvey would adopt his philosophy of anarchy.

Though, subtly, Joker kept his finger in front of the hammer of the gun, which kept it from firing prematurely.

It was most likely that Joker would remove his finger when Harvey would have fired the gun as Joker was shown on multiple occasions that he did not care about himself at all.

In addition, when Harvey gave Joker the coin's options and told him that he would die if the coin landed on the bad side, Joker said: "now we're talking!

Joker exhibited various symptoms of an antisocial personality and blatantly disregarded laws and social norms far beyond standard deviant behavior.

The Joker also had a low level of inhibition and a relentless drive to disturb the status quo: He was driven by something other than greed, as he complained that the criminals of the Mob were just seeking a profit and that the city deserved "a better class of criminal," namely himself it was heavily implied, especially with his declaration that he intended to spread the message that "everything burns," that his motivation and idea for a better class of criminal was to cause chaos simply for the sake of chaos itself.

While Joker attempted to take control of the city by recruiting Mob henchmen, he appeared to hold his philosophy of chaos higher than himself: he described himself as merely an "agent" of chaos in his speech to convince Harvey to let go of his beliefs so that he could prove in his ultimate plan that even the noblest of men could sink down to the Joker's level.

Despite the fact that Joker never cared about money as evidenced by his burning of the Mob's money that he earned to recover Lau from the MCU and stated that his actions weren't "about money.

When Batman interrogated him, Joker casually said that without Batman he'd have to "go back to ripping off mob dealers," which showed how little he actually cared about them.

Joker was also shown to be very literal in his word usage, which allowed him to carry out his crimes and even betrayed his minions while, at the same time, he technically kept his word.

The last trait was especially evident when Joker turned on the Mob after he retrieved their money: When the Chechen angrily told him that Joker himself was a man of his word when Joker revealed that he planned to set the cash on fire, Joker confirmed that he indeed was that and made it clear that he only intended to burn the half of the money that he got from retrieving Lau.

Joker did it often enough that his trademark was claiming that he was "a man of his word. The Joker was a quite tall young man though his hunched posture made him appear slightly shorter than Batman , who was dressed in a custom-tailored purple suit that consisted of an elegant, purple coat and matching pin-stripe pants that were kept up by suspenders rather than a belt.

Underneath it, Joker wore a light grey jacket, a green vest, and a light grey patterned shirt.

Joker was almost always seen wearing chalk-white makeup on his face, which consisted of dark face-paint that blackened the spaces around his leering brown eyes, green hair-dye that was spread all over unkempt greasy brown hair, and a red slash of lipstick that was smeared all over a thin mouth with two gruesome scars that were lined at the corners that resembled a Glasgow Smile, which further implied his unstable psyche.

According to Happy and Dopey, Joker's use of clown makeup was meant for use in psychological warfare akin to warpaint, and that was at least one reason why he was given the moniker of "The Joker.

Obviously, Joker's extremely poor groomed appearance was linked to his nonexistent care for himself and his life. The Joker was a genius at planning and improvising criminal activities: He was incredibly intelligent and calculating and always stayed one step ahead of everyone else, including Batman and the GCPD.

Joker's unique if rather disturbed worldview, as well as the complete mystery that surrounded his identity also gave him something of an edge.

Having no connections, friends, former identities or family to be traced back to made Joker very difficult to predict, track down, or even understand.

Joker was also shown to be a fearless, and unpredictable fighter, who took on Mob henchmen and cops with ease and showed how lethal he was with many forms of weaponry such as shotguns, RPGs, machine pistols, handguns, explosives, and knives.

While he used guns on many occasions, the Joker expressed his preference for knives because "guns are too quick". The Joker was even capable of holding his own against Batman and trapped him near the climax of the film although he had assistance on both occasions when he fought Batman.

One explanation for his fighting skills might have to do with his psychotic personality: Joker didn't really fear physical damage to himself like a normal person did, and, even when brutally injured, laughed at his own pain.

His casual insensitivity to pain, and his extreme fearlessness, let Joker take risks that a normal person couldn't even attempt, and most people just didn't see his attacks coming, i.

The Joker's obliviousness to danger made him invulnerable to what was usually Batman's greatest weapon in combat: his ability to frighten low-level thugs.

The Joker's attack on the bank was mentioned in the final Gotham Tonight special episode. With the Dent Act , the insanity plea was thrown out for the most part, with felons who were predominantly imprisoned, rather than institutionalized.

Therefore, most inmates were moved to Blackgate Prison. However, the Joker was not found there, which lead some in Gotham to speculate that he was one of, if not the only, inmate at Arkham Asylum.

The Joker's whereabouts were never publicized, which left the possibility that he had escaped by the time of Bane's revolution: "The worst of the worst were sent to Blackgate, except for the Joker, who, rumor had it, was locked away as Arkham's sole remaining inmate.

Or perhaps he escaped. Nobody was really sure. The origins of the Joker were left deliberately ambiguous in The Dark Knight.

Christopher Nolan and his Co-Writer, Jonathan Nolan , suggested Joker's first two appearances in 's issues of Batman as crucial influences.

Just as in those issues of the Batman comic, the Joker's back-story was expanded upon little. Instead, the Joker was portrayed as an "absolute".

To me, the Joker is an absolute. There are no shades of gray to him — maybe shades of purple. He's unbelievably dark. He bursts in just as he did in the comics.

It's a very thrilling element in the film, and a very important element, but we wanted to deal with the rise of the Joker, not the origin of the Joker.

The late Heath Ledger described the Joker as a "psychopathic, mass murdering, schizophrenic clown with zero empathy".

Nolan wanted to work with Ledger on a number of projects in the past, but was unable to do so. When Ledger saw Batman Begins , he realized a way to make the character work consistent with that film's tone, and Nolan agreed with his anarchic interpretation.

To prepare for the role, Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulated the character's posture, voice, and psychology, and kept a diary, in which he recorded the Joker's thoughts and feelings to guide himself during his performance.

While he initially found it difficult, Ledger was eventually able to generate a voice that did not sound like Jack Nicholson 's take on the character in Tim Burton 's Batman film.

But we kind of flew far away from that pretty quickly and into another world altogether. On not being invited to reprise the Joker, Jack Nicholson remarked that he was "furious".

In turn, responding to his initially-controversial selection to play the Joker, Ledger stated publicly, "It would not matter who is chosen to play the [Joker].

But I know at the end of the day you are never going to please anyone percent…I refuse to carbon copy a performance.

That would not be a challenge and it would be mocking Mr. Nicholson, whom I have much respect for. The Joker's scruffy and grungy make-up was intended as a reflection of his "edgy" character.

Costume Designer Lindy Hemming described the Joker's look as reflecting his personality—that "he doesn't care about himself at all"; she avoided designing him as a vagrant but still made him appear to be "scruffier, grungier", so that "when you see him move, he's slightly twitchier or edgy.
