Wanna Know How The Dark Knight Begins?

7 Comments

So, you wanna know how the “Batman Begins” sequel, “The Dark Knight” begins, and how the Joker is introduced? Apparently it happens at the same time — the Joker makes his appearance at the very beginning of the film, and — well, head on below to find out how it happens. From everything I’ve seen of the Joker, he’s going to be a homicidal maniac through and through, parts insane and parts psychopath. You know, just the way he should be. Heath Ledger plays the Joker, and Christian Bale returns as Bruce Wayne, aka Batman.

From Latino Review:

The Dark Knight begins with the Joker robbing a huge bank (we’ve seen photos of this everywhere). The bank is where the mob and all the gangs in Gotham keep all of their money. The Joker takes this money and holds it “ransom”. The Joker then says to the mob and the gangs of Gotham, “If you help me take down Batman, you’ll get your money back. If not, I’m going to burn it all.” This is how the Joker assembles his army to take down Batman.

Speaking of the Joker, it just never seemed right with me that Batman would keep letting him live after all of his homicidal binges. How many people has the Joker killed in the comics, thousands? Tens of thousands over the years? And the Batman just keeps letting him get arrested, where he invariably escapes to kill some more. I’m just saying…

    Well, to me, Batman is no killer, and never should be. This is what separates him from not just his villainous rogue’s gallery, but also other vigilantes like the Punisher.

    Should the Joker be killed? Well, yes. He’s a mass murderer that should be put to death. But, by the legal system, not Batman.

    And besides, they can’t kill off the Joker! He’s Batman’s best villain!

    The cartoon Joker looks just like one of our ex prime ministers aka Tony Blair only with green hair – probably like the green in a sloth’s fur because he’s moving so slowly on the Arab-Jewish “peace” making process
