Counting Down Batman’s Best Scenes: How About a Magic Trick?

The Joker's Magic Trick

Here’s a funny joke. The final scene in our countdown of the Scenes We Love from the modern movies of Batman and friends doesn’t exactly feature The Dark Knight himself. In fact, his only presence is in conversation. Everybody’s talking about him. The bat and his many ways to make Gotham’s gangsters run for cover. There’s one man, a crazy clown, who talks about killing The Bat. And it’s his entrance that is truly special. Heath Ledger would go on to win an Oscar for his work as The Joker, and this moment would live on not only as the best of Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight Trilogy, but of all the movies in which the Caped Crusader patrolled the streets of Gotham.

And I thought my jokes were bad…

BONUS SCENE! We can’t let this list end without some Batman action. So how about The Joker and The Batman squaring off in The Dark Knight in a little game of chicken. Perhaps one of the more epic sequences Christopher Nolan will ever conjure up, the new chapter included. (Warning: This clip does contain a spoiler for The Dark Knight, so if you haven’t seen it… what’s your problem?)

Now there’s a Bat man…
