Great overall movie. Joker was perfect! 2face was great. Bruce wayne was great. batman was good, the voice is painful. For the 3rd one, I'm expecting the riddler, 2face and some talk about the joker with maybe a quick cameo of him but no real scenes. With this current storyline I could see Bane coming into play in the 3rd or 4th movie.

I think it's safe to say that DC has picked up the gauntlet Marvel threw down. NOBODY is topping Heath Ledger as Joker. Jack was closer in appearance and origin, but Ledger took the sick, twistedly funny aspects to a crazy new level.
Crazily enough, the only thing that looks like it will top this is Watchmen, another DC property.
Sadly enough? Although Marvel may never top Heath Ledger as a villain, niether will DC. In only two movies we've gotten Ras Al Ghul, Scarecrow, Joker, and Two Face. That is literally his four best villains right there. Ridler is a sad joke in the comics. Even when he pulls off something amazing (see: Hush), he doesn't really get any respect. He's the Aquaman of villains! Mr Freeze played by Patrick Stewart would have possibility, but it might not be the feel they're obviously going for with these new ones. Same with Penguin and Poison Ivy. Killer Croc is just a big monster. Okay as a quick secondary character, same with Mad Hatter.
Whoever in charge there who doesn't want Catwoman in there REALLY needs to read the Hush arc. She was by far the best part of the story. She wouldn't be the main villain, but she'd likely work with whoever was until she was betrayed.
I think the only villain who'd be able to deliver as a main baddy would either be Talia, opening the door for Ras to come back (Lazerus Pit!), or Bane. Batman's got an endless supply of decent, complex villains, but only a few that could follow up the Joker.

*I started my own thread about this, but it got shut down. I'll repost it here if thats o.k.*
O.k. So I saw the Dark Knight last weekend. It F'ing Ruled. I'm not even a quarter as big a Batman fan as GI.Joe or Transfomers. Still I recognize that the new Batman movie was great.
The New Batman movies are well made, well acted, well directed and definitely not just for kids. However you can't deny that some of Batman's encarnations have been..well..rather silly.
Like this. "Holy Sardine!!"
Or this craptacular Batman from a more recent 1997 exploit
GI.Joe has had it's fair share of silliness, Eco Worriors, Battle force 2000, Cobra-la, but I don't think it's ever gone past the redemption point though.
So what I am wondering is why not show the same respect to the new GI.Joe movie (or Transformers movie for that matter) as they have shown to Batman in his new movies?
This is a quote from a Tanker about the new Joe Movie
"..this movie WILL rule...if you are expecting saving private ryan-then you really dont know what gi joe is all about!"
I'm personally not expecting the GI.Joe movie to be like 'Saving Private Ryan' or 'Apocalypse Now' or 'Full metal Jacket'.
But please spare us Powersuits, comic relief characters, and Laser guns.
Were adults now dammit!!

********SPOILERS*********** Don't read if you haven't seen it!!!!!
Dark Knight was a very good movie indeed, but I have to say it has been way, way over-hyped by most. Some gripes I had - It was too long; had way too many scenes with too much chaos and characters which made it feel sloppy in its storytelling; Two Face was kind of wasted; Bale is wooden and boring as Bruce Wayne; Maggie G as Rachel was plain and you didn't care when she dies one bit; some plots are never explained and serve no purpose it seems (although the third movie could give them reason for being I suppose); and Batman's voice was overdone to the point of just being annoying.
The good. Heath Ledger was absolutely brilliant as the Joker (he makes the movie worth the price of admission); Two-Face/Harvey Dent was also done well (as I said, a bit wasted in my opinion); the action scenes were for the most part really exciting and done well; Bale in the Batman suit kicked major ass; the music and cinematography were both nicely done.
I give the movie a solid 8 on IMDB. A tie with Iron Man as the summer's best movie (Wall-E is my personal fave of the summer, though).
