Main Plot

When the menace known as the Joker wreaks havoc and chaos on the people of Gotham, Batman must accept one of the greatest psychological and physical tests of his ability to fight injustice.


  • Christian Bale's character, Batman/Bruce Wayne, is the vigilante hero protecting Gotham City from the chaotic and menacing Joker.
  • Heath Ledger's character, the Joker, serves as the main antagonist and disrupts the peace in Gotham City.
  • Aaron Eckhart's character, Harvey Dent, plays the role of Gotham's district attorney who becomes the villainous Two-Face.


The Dark Knight ends with Batman taking the blame for Harvey Dent's crimes in order to preserve Dent's legacy as Gotham's White Knight. Batman goes into hiding as a fugitive, while Commissioner Gordon and Batman's ally, Lucius Fox, maintain the secret. Batman's sacrifice allows Gotham to continue believing in Dent's heroism, but also leaves Batman as a symbol of hope and fear.
