He's the hero that Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now.
So we'll hunt him, because he can take it.
Because he's not our hero.
He's a silent guardian...A watchful protector...

OFFICIAL SYNOPSIS:
"In The Dark Knight, Batman raises the stakes in his war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Harvey Dent, Batman sets out to dismantle the remaining criminal organizations that plague the city streets. The partnership proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a reign of chaos unleashed by a rising criminal mastermind known to the terrified citizens of Gotham as The Joker."
