The Dark Knight Trilogy: An Ensemble of A-List Actors

Posted on the 14 January 2014 by Rukhaiyaaramrit
The Dark Knight Trilogy is arguably the best trilogy ever made in films. It was so good and character driven, that many of us actually forgets the great actor playing a certain Batman character. Nolan's masterpiece included the greatest of actors, its like he spent years deciding about the most appropriate people to portray characters like Alfred, Rachel, Harvey Dent, Gordon, Bane, Selena Kyle, Ra's Al Ghul, The Joker and of course The Batman. He impressed from the time Batman Begins came, he got all the A-List actors and convinced them to play little roles that may be important but still pretty mediocre for the status they have earned over the years. In BATMAN BEGINS, we saw Christian Bale, Liam Neeson, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine, Cillian Murphy and Morgan Freeman as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Ducard, Jim Gordon, Alfred, Jonathan Crane/ScareCrow and Lucius Fox respectively. For an actor as great as Morgan Freeman, Lucius Fox was a very small role to play, though it wasn't put in a way that looked unimportant. Even the character Jim Gordon was given a whole new dimension by Nolan, remember Gordon of Tim Burton's Batman, we can't even picture him properly. In the next film, THE DARK KNIGHT he introduced Harvey Dent and The Joker, played by Aaron Eckhart and Heath Ledger, there was controversy over Ledger's casting but Nolan knew it all, he knew those who criticize will return. Eckhart was as good as Dent as he was as the Two Face. plus he brought in Maggie Gyllenhaal replacing Katie Holmes. The Dark Knight Trilogy: An ensemble of A-List actors When Batman disappeared in the climax, we wondered how Nolan will make him return, it was hard to imagine a third installment as good as the first two films, especially for an iconic film like The Dark Knight. But Nolan certainly made a good third film, THE DARK KNIGHT RISES was certainly a classic piece of cinema as The Dark Knight was, but still he didn't disappoint. This time, he added more great actors in that massive list, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Anne Hathaway, Marion Cotillard and Tom Hardy. Tom Hardy as Bane, was pure evil, unlike the Joker who had a psychic way, Bane was physical torture, the destructive kind that made Batman look weak. Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight Trilogy had a superb cast that supported him in all the genius ideas he came up with. I will definitely come back with more love for THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY. -Amrit Rukhaiyaar
