This is a 24 x 36 Poster. I did this poster based on the scene. Jedoch muss die Polizei feststellen, dass die Staatsanwälte Harvey Dent und Rachel Dawes kurz nach der Gefangennahme des Jokers spurlos verschwunden.
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.
This corruption, this decay in the texture of the look itself. It's grubby. You can almost imagine what he smells like.
Ledger described his "clown" mask, made up of three pieces of stamped silicone, as a "new technology", which took much less time for the make-up artists to apply than more-conventional prosthetic that usually required—the process took them only an hour—and resulted in Ledger's impression that he was barely wearing any makeup at all.
Rumors about the character's design spread after The Dark Knight 's release, with many who made connections with Tim Burton's character, Beetlejuice, due to the similar make-up design between the two characters.
The Joker kills Lau and the Chechen, burns his half of the mob's money and takes over the Chechen's gang.
During the ensuing panic, the Joker sneaks into Gotham General Hospital disguised as a nurse to meet with Dent and persuades him to take revenge on the people he holds responsible for Rachel's death.
He then blows up the hospital and takes a busload of hostages. The Joker rigs explosives on two ferries leaving the Gotham bay, one containing citizens and the other transporting criminals, and tells the passengers that he will destroy both boats unless one blows up the other by midnight.
While Batman fights the Joker, the ferry passengers choose not to blow each other up, Batman bluntly informing the Joker that, despite his attempt to prove "that deep down, everyone's as ugly as [him]", the Joker is alone in his corruption and insanity.
Batman subsequently apprehends the Joker, who states that he believes that they are meant to fight each other forever.
The Joker gloats that he has won "the battle for Gotham's soul", as the city's inhabitants will lose hope once Dent's rampage as the murderous vigilante "Two-Face" becomes known.
Batman ultimately foils the Joker's plan by taking the blame for Dent's crimes. However, the novelization of the film makes an ambiguous reference to the character while describing Blackgate Prison :.
Now that the Dent Act had made it all but impossible to cop an insanity plea , it had replaced Arkham Asylum as the preferred location for imprisoning both convicted and suspected felons.
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,  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  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 Michael Jai White [ 34 ] et Eric Roberts [ 35 ] jouent deux membres de la mafia.
