Overview: Die Fortsetzung von Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, vereint Regisseur Christopher Nolan und Hauptdarsteller Christian Bale, der erneut die Rolle des Batman/Bruce Wayne in seinem anhaltenden Kampf gegen das Böse verköpert. Unterstützt von Lieutenant Jim Gordon und Staatsanwalt Harvey Dent setzt Batman sein Vorhaben fort, das organisierte Verbrechen in Gotham endgültig zu zerschlagen. Das Dreiergespann erweist sich als effektiv. Doch bald sehen sie sich einem genialen, immer mächtiger werdenden Kriminellen gegenübergestellt, der als Joker bekannt ist: Er stürzt Gotham in ein anarchisches Chaos und zwingt Batman immer näher an die Grenze zwischen Gerechtigkeit und Rache.
