Every hero needs a challenge

I absolutely love Dark Knight and Heath Ledger’s performance of Joker. I haven’t watched Suicide Squad yet (thanks to all those negative reviews, but it is on my to-watch list anyways) but I can never think of any other actor doing the role of Joker. For me, Heath Ledger will always be the best Joker. And I am sure a lot of people would also agree to it.

I found a video today which explains why it isn’t just the performance of Heath Ledger that makes the Joker of Dark Knight so powerful. He is, as is explained, only one side of the coin. He is the reason Batman becomes more powerful and more wiser. He is one of the best antagonist as a character goes in a story. Check out this video for more details.

My nephew’s latest possession and obsession : his Batman toy.  He doesn’t part with it even during his sleep.

Wanna visit Gotham?

For the record, my favorite superhero is Batman. So I was so excited to see this advertisement. Even though it is for the promotion of the upcoming film (which I am not sure if I will be seeing it, but then who knows!) it is still so amazing. Come on, why not have a city with that name heh? It would be so cool. Imagine having a set built like Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle, where you can go and see the city in its all glory. I am not sure if they already have one somewhere. But until then, enjoy the promotion 🙂

“People need dramatic examples to shake them out of apathy, and I can’t do that as Bruce Wayne. As a man, I’m flesh and blood; I can be ignored, I can be destroyed. But as a symbol… as a symbol I can be incorruptible. I can be everlasting.” – Bruce Wayne in Batman Begins
