This was absolute masterpiece of story writing and film making. Ledger's Joker will go down as the greatest performance of a comic book villian. Christopher Nolan has done an absolutely masterfull job of resurrecting the Batman franchise that was nearly extinct, no thanks to those circus-like, trainwreck sequals Joel Schumacher created, in the mid-90's, for the kiddies to enjoy. Actually, Tim Burton's vision wasn't much better. (A pudgy middle-aged, balding Joker??? Give me a break.) This is what comic book films should be...accurate, edgy , and pushing buttons. After having to endure the melodramatic Spiderman disasters that Sam Raimi created (If you disaggree, just ask yourself why was it necessary for Peter Parker to cry in each movie?) We get two films that are absolutely perfect and, for once, not directed toward making the families happy for a change. The pressure will be on Warner Bros. and Christopher Nolan to create a third sequal worthy of the first two films. However, I have no doubt they both, especially Nolan, will find a way to create, or perhaps complete the greatest comic-book trilogy of all-time (That is, if they don't screw it up). The Dark Knight, like Batman Begins, was perfect and has changed the standard along with Iron Man, for better-made comic book films. Hopefully this will be the death-knell of the disneyesque films such as X-Men 3 and Ghost Rider, just to name few more recent disasters.
