"Superheroes fill a gap in the pop culture psyche, similar to the role of Greek mythology. There isn’t really anything else that does the job in modern terms. For me, Batman is the one that can most clearly be taken seriously." - Christopher Nolan

Heath Ledger’s Joker Diary
"I sat around in a hotel room in London for about a month, locked myself away, formed a little diary" - Heath Ledger on his preparation for The Joker role in Christopher Nolan’s THE DARK KNIGHT.
Extract from the documentary “Too Young To Die”. Kim Ledger, his father, speaks.
"This is the Joker’s diary.
In order to inhabit his character, he (Heath) locked himself up in a hotel room for weeks.
He would do that. He liked to dive into his characters, but this time he really took it up a notch.”
"The hospital scene is interesting because when he was a kid, his sister Kate liked to dress him up as a nurse. He was really funny like that. He also was in the movie.
This is a make-up test which was done eight months before. Before the end of the shooting he wrote “bye bye” on the back of the page. It was hard to see this.’
