People like a legend. When Heath Ledger died of a prescription drug overdose in January 2008, he had just completed principal photography on his Academy Award-winning role of the Joker in Christopher Nolan’s grown-up Batman flick The Dark Knight.

Remember back before 'The Dark Knight Rises' came out and there was all that controversy about no one being able to understand what the hell Bane was saying? Christopher Nolan was very against modifying his voice, but seems he was pressured into making him more clear and easier to understand. In my opinion, it almost seemed like Nolan was kinda messing with the studio for making him do it, cause a
By now, unless you went into hiding before July 18th, 2008 with zero electricity or somethin, you've seen Heath Ledger's award winning performance as Joker in 'The Dark Knight'.
