[tps_header]6. The Dark Knight (2008), Directed by Christopher Nolan[/tps_header]
While Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy ranged from okay to horrible, the height of the series was undoubtedly “The Dark Knight.” The strength of the series has always come from the villains rather than its protagonist. What better villain to face off against than The Joker? Heath Leger gave an Oscar worthy performance as the legendary villain. His character alone makes this movie worthy of a place on any top ten superhero movie list.
