Recently watched all three of the Batman movies with Christian Bale and they are my favourite movies in the world! Love batman, but I also love the joker. I used to always hate the joker, but after re-watching the Dark Knight with a more open mind, I learned to appreciate the character. I think Heath Ledger was phenomenal and really fell into character. Also love Batman's gadgets and all the hidden messages throughout the movie. I would definitely recommend this trilogy!
Batman is more than likely the best proof to people that it doesn't take powers to be a superhero, saying this he still manages to be as good or even better than most heroes with powers, like the flash, green lantern and even superman. That is what I want my character to be seen as.
