(ANI): The Dark Knight's director Christopher Nolan has said that
Heath Ledger deserves all the credit for the film's massive box
office haul. In the movie, Ledger plays 'The Joker', the last full
film role he completed before his death in January (08) from an
accidental drug overdose.
Speaking at the film's Japanese premiere, Nolan said that Ledger
is behind the success of the movie. "(He was) what The Joker in our
film would need to be. (We were) looking for an actor with the
fierceness, excitement and teeth to do our version of the Joker," Contactmusic quoted him, as saying.
Christian Bale, who plays Batman in the record-breaking film,
also appreciated Ledger. "It's satisfying to see people celebrating
the incredible talent of Heath. I just want him to be recognised,"
he said in a press conference.
