Rationale: #Joker was never a villan nor a hero. He intended to restore balance in #Gotham city as he believed, goodness in abundance would eventually lead to destruction. He was a symbol more than #Batman, and was never really killed by Batman either, he chose to die once. He exists spiritually and would surface, when its needed.
Actor: #HeathLedger [ Posthumously received Oscar for best performance in a supporting role for Joker. In 2016, a documentary reveled the self written notes by Heath Ledger himself on how did the character take over him. He locked himself in a room and didn’t come out for months even before the shoot started. He enacted the character in front of the mirror, gradually got obsessed, and became the character for real. Even Nolan mentioned that he was calm throughout the production and always pondering about the character, he lived as Joker on and off the set. Eventually, obsession led to his biological death. He does exist spiritually among many of us]
Writers: #ChristopherNolan , #JonathanNolan
