For Bale, like the world's box offices, 2008 would be dominated by one movie The Dark Knight, a sequel to Batman Begins and a reunion with master director Christopher Nolan. Although for once, Bales thunder was stolen by another actor cast out of type: Heath Ledgers Oscar winning turn as The Joker.
In addition to being forever associated with Heath Ledgers untimely early death (and final completed role), the film itself won unanimous critical acclaim as an action packed movie revolution of the genre, filled with real depth and atmosphere. It also stormed its way into the box-office hall of fame, taking more than one billion dollars worldwide!
