It has been exactly five years since the world lost actor Heath Ledger. We are going to look at a few of his best known films.
Yeah, It's so sad that he died right after doing one of the most amazing performances in a movie.. I mean if you just think how big he was about to be, that's a shame, because he nailed that role as the joker... because of him I became the biggest fan of the dark knight -as I'm sure many people did- I thought he did the role so well that the movie will go down as one of the greatest movies of all time.. He nailed it, and made the batman movie unforgettable... R.I.P Heath Ledger, for you my friend will indeed be missed...
He's the only celebrity whose death actually moved me a little.
I still consider his Joker role to be the best acting I have ever seen. RIP.
I am disappointed that they threw away the joker character in Rises. I simply don't think they need to do that every time some one passes on (or when they can't get an actor to return). Joker in the Dark Knight series had proven his point (unlike the source material of the concept, Killing Joke)....that BEGGED for him to be a part of the uprising. Sigh.....well, whatreya gonna do?
Ledgers death rocked Nolan big time. He didn't want to do a third movie because of it.
Glad he did.
Even if he was alive, they would of gone with bane.
Point: Scarecrow. They wouldn't have completely ignored Joker.
I would imagine if Ledger was alive, he would of been in the new movie. Bane would probably would be checking in with the Joker once in awhile and maybe even the Joker would work with Bane to destroy the city.
That joker role has to be in my top 5 proformences of all time.
I really liked his movie A Knight's Tale and became a fan. I was really excited to see him in The Dark Knight but left me heartbroken when he passed away. I was looking forward for his next films after TDK. =/ Rest in peace Heath.
nicholson > ledger dont get me wrong it was a solid proformance but to sit here and say its legendary why? because he died give me a breake your in denial if you actually think the dark knight made all that money because of his joker it made that money for the simple fact it was his last movie im so sick of hearing how great he was just because he died wish he would have lived justfor that simple fact people hang on his nut bag WAY to much
That's your opinion which you're more then entitled to, but doesn't mean other people have to agree with it.
