Could the Joker be the secret and real hero of The Dark Knight? One theory suggests that his plan, chaotic as it was, actually saved Gotham City.
The dark knight It’s still considered one of the best superhero movies ever made, and as such continues to be scrutinized over and over by fans, with one of them having an interesting interpretation: The Joker is actually the hero, and his plan saved Gotham. City. The history of Batman on the big screen has been full of ups and downs, and it all began in the 1940s with two serial films, followed by the film adaptation of the television series starring Adam West and Burt Ward in the 1960s. The first successes of Batman in the realm of the cinema arrived in 1989 and 1992 with Tim Burton. bat Man Y Batman Returns, but it all came down with Joel Schumacher Batman forever (1995) and Batman and robin (1997).
After a long hiatus, The Caped Crusader returned to the big screen in Christopher Nolan’s film. The beginning of batman, released in 2005, which introduced audiences to Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne. The beginning of batman was followed by The dark knight Y The dark knight rises, forming the Dark Knight Trilogy, and although all the films were successful, the one that stands out for many reasons is The dark knight. The movie featured Heath Ledger’s Joker, who came to Gotham City to kill Batman, play with the mob, and wreak havoc throughout the city, and he accomplished the latter. However, despite how chaotic it was and as much damage and pain as it caused, his actions can be seen as somewhat heroic, and his plan was the one that saved Gotham, at least for a time.
Although the Joker is one of Batman’s most famous villains and his actions in all The dark knight caused a lot of destruction and death, it might actually have done something good for Gotham. TO Reddit The user shared his interpretation of the Joker’s actions and the results of these and concluded that he was more of a hero in the movie than Batman; the only problem is that their ways were much more violent. The author of the theory begins by explaining that before the arrival of the Joker the city was a disaster, controlled by the mafia and other organized crime groups, the city officials were corrupt and all allowed a masked vigilante to “roam” the city . Upon arrival, the Joker robbed a bank controlled by the mafia as the first step in his grand plan (because the Joker really is a “man with a plan”, contrary to what he says in the movie), which unleashes a chain of events involving the mob, Batman, city officials and Harvey Dent.
The Joker killed criminals and corrupt officials while Dent and Batman fought for the “souls” of Gotham, and the author even adds that Gordon’s promotion to Commissioner was part of the plan to improve Gotham, and the Joker’s applause during his scene from promotion were not sarcastic. but genuine. At the time, the Joker was on his way to get rid of organized crime and corrupt officials, but there was a major obstacle in his way: Batman. At the beginning of The dark knight, it is shown that there were many imitators and aspiring vigilantes who even dressed as Batman, so the real one had to be stopped but not killed as that would make him a martyr, so the goal was to break it from the inside. The Joker accomplished this by giving him the wrong address and killing Rachel Dawes, and managed to make him look like a villain after Dent’s death, which sent Bruce Wayne on an eight-year retirement. As for Dent, he was a better symbol and martyr for the city and the Joker knew that after Rachel’s death and the explosion that left him disfigured, Batman would have no choice but to get rid of him. Dent’s death ended up giving way to the Dent Act, which ended organized crime by incarcerating all criminals, thus ending the Joker’s plan.
At the end of The dark knight, Gotham was nearly clean, corrupt officials were dead or incarcerated, and Batman went into hiding for eight years, and it wasn’t until Bane’s arrival that The dark knight rises that chaos ensued again and Batman was forced out of retirement. This theory might be worth considering next time you see The dark knight, and in the end, each viewer will decide if the Joker was the secret hero of the movie or if he was just a man who loved chaos.
