Ten years ago, on the 25th July (in the UK) director Christopher Nolan returned to Gotham to bring us the sequel to his reimagined, darker, more 'serious' Batman. Not only considered to be the best of the Dark Knight Trilogy, but universally hailed as the best comic book film of all time, The Dark Knight blew us all away in 2008. And opinions haven't much changed in the decade since. In this episode we revisit The Dark Knight and discuss the legend surrounding the film- did Heath Ledger really go mad in a hotel room? Was Michael Caine really too scared to act opposite the Joker? We talk about its legacy and the unfortunate, negative impact it had on the films that followed *cough, cough ,Man of Steel, cough* And one fan brings us all back down to earth by reminding us of the shit bits. Plus rubber nipples!
