Antiheroes In Movies That We Can’t Help But Love

The Joker – The Dark Night


Although Heath Ledger’s portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight is clearly the villain of the film, he can also be considered an antihero. The Joker was easily one of the most enjoyable aspects of the film which gave us a whole new dimension to this classic Batman villain. No matter what his end goal was, how many people he killed, or how creepy he was, it’s hard not to admit that he was an enticing character. He provided most if not all of the comic relief and the film which was done in a tasteful and impressive way. Also, yes, the Joker might have taken things too far, but at the core of his insanity, he had a set of principles and reasoning that was ultimately hard to fully disagree with.
