The True Story Of Heath Ledger’s Joker

Join us as we look back on Heath Ledger’s iconic portrayal of The Joker as well as his tragic death. Subscribe to our channel:

Heath Ledger’s brilliant Joker is arguably the greatest comic book movie villain of all time.

At the very least, the antagonist from 2008’s The Dark Knight is right up there with the likes of Terence Stamp’s General Zod (Superman II), Ian McKellen’s Magneto (the X-Men franchise), and Tom Hiddleston’s Loki (the Marvel Cinematic Universe) in contention for that title.

This documentary will chronicle the story of the iconic character from beginning to end, in truly fascinating detail.

It will look at the initial casting of the Joker – including the other actors in contention for the role – and the initial backlash (which now looks a little silly) that it caused. It will look at Ledger’s preparation for the role and how seriously he took it. It will look at his tragic death, the circumstances surrounding it, and the idea that his dedication to the role of the Joker might have been the cause of it. It will look at the critical acclaim he posthumously received – including the awards he won – for being so brilliant in the role. It will look at the love and admiration he had from his peers – including those who worked alongside him on The Dark Knight. And it will look at the legacy he left, ten years on from his death.
