Best Dark Knight Trilogy Characters

List of the favorite characters from Christopher Nolan's great Batman trilogy.

The Top TenXW

1Joker The Joker is a fictional super villain created by Bill Finger, Bob Kane, and Jerry Robinson who first appeared in the debut issue of the comic book Batman (April 25, 1940) published by DC Comics . Credit for the Joker's creation is disputed; Kane and Robinson claimed responsibility for the Joker's design, more.

Heath Ledger improvised so many of his scenes in The Dark Knight and they were all exceptionally AMAZING! Him and Nolan made the film THE GREATEST SUPERHERO FILM OF ALL TIME and perhaps one of the best movies ever made. We can only see this kind of performance and film only once every 10 or even 20 years and therefore we really really should appreciate THE DARK KNIGHT.

Heath truly was ahead of the curve with this one

It's ashamed that Heath Ledger died. If he was still alive today, he would been in more great films like the Dark Knight. He would love this movie and he'll say it's his favorite movie he's in. - Metts

Truly incredible acting. Not only the best in the Dark Knight trilogy but one of the best actors of all time.

2Bruce Wayne / Batman

No doubt Heath Ledger was the BEST VILLAIN to oppose ANY "Superhero" figure in ANY production to Date. But then again Jack Nicholson was very good for the "type" of character the writing shot for. As was Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face and (yes) Jim Carrey as the Riddler... All "silly" characters... But purposely silly.
The list of Actors portraying "The Batman" is long... Never written to be "clumsy" or "foolish" - NONE even close to Christian Bale...
(EXCEPT for the "disguised voice" which made me cringe... You would think that GENIUS Lucius Fox, who had so many great toys, could have come up with some "band-aid" looking thingie over the larynx to alter the voice or something)
Who was the WORST BATMAN?

As far as I'm concerned there has never been or ever will be another actor who can portray batman better than Christian Bale period!

Christian Bale makes a good Bruce Wayne and an even better Batman.

The only batman who made people afraid

3Bane Bane is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

There is no villain that can be cool and calm and be so evil at the same time. Awesome acting done by Tom Hardy, and his mask ( the voice and the look) suits the character perfectly

The best parts of Bane in the Dark Knight Trilogy is when he snaps people's necks. It was disturbing, but awesome!

He's a good villain but not as good as the Joker. - Metts

4Harvey Dent

I think harvey dent or two face has the best charectisation in movie his man of politics and his a hero then he become a devil he shows that there is not good or bad there is only conditiones at end and his idealism at first then he became a nihilism and jokers ace in the hole he crush our emotions in movie

I like Tommy Lee Jones a little better and he's a better actor than Aaron Eckhart but Aaron Eckhart looks more realistic than Tommy Lee Jones. - Metts

He scares me even more than the joker

I think he is best after joker

5Selina Kyle

Catwoman was way better in Batman Returns than the Dark Knight Rises. - Metts

I do not really like Anne Hathaway but in this paper it looked sexy

6Alfred PennyworthAlfred Thaddeus Crane Pennyworth is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, most commonly in association with Batman.

Alfred is one of the few funny characters and also one of the few that has been in all three movies.

So loyal and inspirational, he should be higher on this list.

7Jim Gordon

Gordon helps mediate these films; instead of a campy superhero film, he gives the films elements of neo-noir and detective. Above all, his monologue in The Dark Knight truly made the film.

He sure acted nice, good old Oldman! - HezarioSeth

8Ra's al GhulRa's al Ghul is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.

Liam Neeson! Gotta be number one on any list. Just say his first name, it's awesome. You can;t help but say it in an Irish accent. Liam! - LukeDaDuke2

He's my second favorite villain behind the Joker. - Metts

9Dr. Jonathan Crane / Scarecrow

Refreshingly sadistic. Additionally, he was in all of the films.

10Lucius Fox

Morgan Freeman is better than the scarecrow... Enough said.

He's a great character and Morgan Freeman is a great actor. - Metts

Every character played by Morgan Freeman is awesome

He's black and awesome enough said

The Contenders

11John Blake

I really liked him. He was a great new character, his acting was decent(it was better on inception) and he was a good supporting character. He was revealed at the end to be called robin, and. It would have been great to see a new nolan batman film with robin. Just saying

12Rachel Dawes

Okay she should've like number six

13Carmine Falcone

Carmine was the first villian in the films, before Scarecrow and before Ra's Al Guhl. Made the movie feel like a gangster movie at times, which made it feel more real. Batman Begins was the best of the trilogy, and Falcone, more than Scarecrow, more than Ra's, was the Brut force behind the crime! - CaptainAmerica2000

14Talia al Ghul

Excellent how Christopher Nolan managed to keep Talia being in the final instalment under wraps. It was never advertised in the trailors, & even though its common knowledge that Ra's had a daughter, while watching the movie, her being in it, was still kept under wraps. Bravo to Christopher Nolan!

The twist was unexpected but a little off in timing

15Sal Moroni

Classic criminal played a perfect role as tertiary antagonist in the dark knight. - dominij
