Best Dark Knight Trilogy Characters

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

The Top Ten

Joker 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, ...read more.

Heath Ledger fitted so so perfectly as Joker in the Dark Knight Trilogy and after all his acting, he's proven all what an actor should be - versatile and beyond that - defining the character. The concept of the Joker is badass and defines the old phrase devilish laughter. What more of a villain do you want?

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.

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

Do I have to explain why? I mean, he's scary - every time I see the movie I get nervous like the first time.

Bruce Wayne / Batman Bruce Wayne is a fictional character appearing in the American comic books published by DC Comics. He is a wealthy American playboy, philanthropist, and owner of Wayne Enterprises. After witnessing the murder of his parents Dr. Thomas Wayne and Martha Wayne as a child, Bruce swore vengeance against ...read more.

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?

Batman is Batman after all. He defined it. He's a pure genius and he's a mastermind. He does things, he thinks things, he wins things and isn't bother about getting any credit for the things he does. That's how a true badass is. I love the movie very much and my username is also based on The Dark Knight

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.

Harvey Dent Two-Face/Harvey Dent is a fictional villain from DC Comics. Harvey Dent was one of Gotham's most trusted citizens until he had acid poured on his face making him go insane and become a criminal by the name Two-Face. In film, he has been portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in Batman ...read more.

Best villain from the DC universe for his psychological torment and the great schizophrenic struggle endured by his own duality and the conundrum of his existence. By far the deepest and best designed villain as well due to the scarred visage playing a dynamic role in his elegant and handsome side being a clever camouflage to his grisly and deadly side. Also, a powerhouse of a character due to the epitome of the madman within, a white knight who turned to a wicked persona worse than those he locked up, and the pure definition of justice with the toss of a coin... Fair, and without a shred of emotion. Best hands down.

He's more terrifying than the devil in the Exorcist.

He scares me even more than the joker

I think he is best after joker

Bane 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 has got a nice voice

Cool ass war lord

Alfred Pennyworth Alfred 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.

LOL, the picture is of the new Alfred. No one beats Michael Caine

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

Alfred is good, but this picture is from BvS not the dark knight

Jim Gordon James W. Gordon is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, most commonly in association with the superhero Batman.

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!

Goddamit gary oldman was good

Dr. Jonathan Crane / Scarecrow

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

Selina Kyle

She is an exceptional actress able to convey the cunning, mercurial nature of Selina Kyle.

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

Eh, I didn't like her portrayal of Catwoman, I prefer Michelle Phieffer's, Hathaway's was just too dull and lifeless

Ra's al Ghul Ra'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!

Lucius Fox

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

Every character played by Morgan Freeman is awesome

He's black and awesome enough said

Help this guy topple Scarecrew. please.

The Contenders

John 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

Rachel Dawes

Okay she should've like number six

Liked katie holmes bunches

Sal Moroni

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

If Sal Moroni isn't dead in 1 hour, I'll blow up a hospital

Don't remember this guy.

Scarecrow The Scarecrow is a fictional supervillain appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly as an adversary of the superhero Batman.
Carmine Falcone

Carmine was the first villain 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!

Lau
Gambol
The Chechen
Pencil Trick Thug

He needs more love

Like damn

Two Face Two-Face/Harvey Dent is a fictional villain from DC Comics. Harvey Dent was one of Gotham's most trusted citizens until he had acid poured on his face making him go insane and become a criminal by the name Two-Face. In film, he has been portrayed by Billy Dee Williams in Batman, Tommy Lee Jones in Batman ...read more.
Talia al Ghul Talia al Ghul is a fictional character appearing in American comic books published by DC Comics, commonly in association with Batman.

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

Barsad
Mayor Anthony Garcia
Miranda Tate

She was the same as Talia al Ghul! She can't have two spots on the same list!
