The performance also benefited, as a newly unearthed series of interviews with the cast describes, from more method acting than was previously known.

Nearly 10 years later, everyone still loves The Dark Knight, and it's become the standard of what makes a good superhero film.

It will be interesting to see how fans take a new anecdote from the production.

Without a doubt, one of the most memorable elements in the hit sequel to Batman Begins was that of Heath Ledger's Joker.

The interviews, between Ledger, Nolan, and Christian Bale (who played Batman in the film), were published in the book 100 Things Batman Fans Should Know & Do Before They Die by Joseph McCabe.

As printed by The Hollywood Reporter, the author speaks to Christian Bale as well as director Christopher Nolan about the 2008 film.

"As you can see in the film, Batman hits the Joker and realizes that this is not the enemy of ordinary". Because the more I beat him the more he enjoys it. Heath was behaving in a very similar fashion.

Adding, "He was kind of egging me on".

Baleman also confides that Heath Ledger wanted to actually receive hits in order to really know the pain on the Joker. It's going to look just as good if I don't.' And he's going, "Go on. Go on. Go on...." Go on. Go on....' He was slamming himself around, and there were tiled walls inside of that set which were cracked and dented from him hurling himself into them.

Clearly, Ledger did not back down from making his character as unhinged as he is in the comics. After all, if anything is going to make for one of the most definitive movies to feature the Caped Crusader, it's got to be the inclusion of his greatest nemesis, right?

The thing with the tongue was...he had this prosthetic that was covering his lower lip and it would come unglued sometimes. The more I'm giving him satisfaction. They don't feel like actorly touches.

It's fantastic just how involved Ledger seems to be in the development of his character and it certainly paid off. Ledger's role as the Batman's greatest foe not only assured his place as one of the pioneering actors of all time but his take on Joker also reinstated just how unbelievable the character from the comics is.

Ledger's Joker had a range of emotion.
