"The Dark Knight" (2008)
In Sir Michael Caine's opinion, Heath Ledger beat the odds and topped Jack Nicholson's Joker from Batman (1989): "Jack was like a clown figure, benign but wicked, maybe a killer old uncle. He could be funny and make you laugh. Heath's gone in a completely different direction to Jack, he's like a really scary psychopath. He's a lovely guy and his Joker is going to be a hell of a revelation in this picture." Caine bases this belief on a scene where The Joker pays a visit to Bruce Wayne's penthouse. He'd never met Ledger before, so when Ledger arrived and performed, he gave Caine such a fright, he forgot his lines. ------------------------------------------------------
In preparation for his role as The Joker, Heath Ledger hid away in a motel room for about six weeks. During this extended stay of seclusion, Ledger delved deep into the psychology of the character. He devoted himself to developing The Joker's every tic, namely the voice and that sadistic-sounding laugh (for the voice, Ledger's goal was to create a tone that didn't echo the work Jack Nicholson did in his 1989 performance as the Joker). Ledger's interpretation of The Joker's appearance was primarily based on the chaotic, disheveled look of punk rocker Sid Vicious combined with the psychotic mannerisms of Malcolm McDowell's character, Alex De Large, from A Clockwork Orange (1971).

"All shall be explained in due time Theo but for now... how about we have ourselves a little chat" [𝐀 𝐅𝐄𝐖 𝐃𝐀𝐘𝐒 𝐏𝐑𝐈𝐎𝐑...] It was late night in Sinward City, Theo sat in the underground bunker following leads on a case of a potential new clan in the city under the alias "Shadoudemonzu" a Japan based cult, why were they here in Sinward? Personal vendetta? Strictly "business"? Alot of questions left unanswered.
Theo had some evidence which narrowed him closer to potential solid leads, a Japanese opera mask "シャドウデモンズ" inscripted into the inside of the mask coloured in deep red very similar to Theo's Falcon Interceptor Suit "Hmm fan clan?" He chuckled to himself but had to get serious as he needed to find them more specifically the head running the marching orders. [𝐏𝐑𝐄𝐒𝐄𝐍𝐓 𝐃𝐀𝐘...] Theo sat under a spot light, the room dark, bound at his arms and legs set in the middle of the room unable to move stripped of his suit from the waist up, he heard footsteps "Come on out don't be shy now" then a chuckle "Oh we are never shy of stepping out into the light Theo" The Leader stepped out weapon in hand "You're the son of the one and only Blackbird correct?" Theo said nothing which lead to him receiving a firm strong strike to the gut causing him to cough up blood laughing a little "G-Gonna need to do alot better than that to get me to break..." he said with too much of a confident smile "As you wish..." replied the leader, multiple men stepped into the light whips in hand, Theo wasn't intimidated in the slightest mostly due to his father being the scariest person he knew before they all took shots lashing at him taking off layers of skin leaving deep markings on his upper body screaming out in nothing but pure pain that he had never felt before as it went on.
