Everyone agrees that Heath Ledger as the Joker in The Dark Knight was awesome.
But Christian Bale, who played the titular character, thinks Ledger’s performance as the Clown Prince of Crime outshone his own as Batman.
Speaking to Yahoo! Movies, Bale said, “I didn’t quite nail it. Heath turned up and just kind of completely ruined all my plans. He’s so much more interesting than me and what I’m doing.” Ledger posthumously won an Oscar for the role; he died before completing it in 2008.
With a new Batman v. Superman rolling into theaters in just 20 days, the comparisons between Bale’s performance and Ben Affleck’s will only increase. The Joker is also set to appear on the big screen again in Suicide Squad which will be in theaters on August 5. Jared Leto plays the green-haired criminal, and people are already comparing him with Heath Ledger.
All things considered, Christian Bale does not want to reprise the Batman role again. He said, “You know, I mean, we did our thing. It’s done. I’ve got nothing else to offer it.”SuperFable
