Counting Down Batman’s Best Scenes: Ever Danced With the Devil in the Pale Moonlight?

Batman (1989) The Joker's End

Two nights ago, we begin a countdown of Batman’s five greatest Scenes We Love, considering all of the contemporary cinematic appearances of The Dark Knight. It started with Bruce’s intro in Batman Returns before jumping forward in time to enjoy the glory of the Tumbler chase in Batman Begins. For the third scene on our list, we jump back in time again to Tim Burton’s series, all the way back to the original Batman from 1989. In this climactic sequence, Batman (Michael Keaton) and The Joker (Jack Nicholson) battle it out atop that big ass Cathedral (which has to be about 900 stories, wouldn’t you say?)

Have you ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight? I haven’t either, but it’s an interesting proposition…

Stay tuned for the rest of the countdown all this week. If you care to guess what scenes will make the list, please feel free to do so in the comments below.
