'The Dark Knight' Movie Stills

Some fantastic new pictures from the next Batman installment have surfaced!

The Dark Knight features Christian Bale reprising his role as the titular hero and Aaron Eckhart as Harvey Dent/Two Face (not pictured).

The Joker (Heath Ledger) can be seen holding a knife to the throat of D.A. Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal). Cillian Murphy (The Scarecrow in Batman Begins) also makes his return to the series. Very, very exciting!!!!!

The superhero flick opens next summer — July 18th.

    FIRST

  • janet

    MAGGIE GYLLENHALL IS A DUMB BITCH THEY SHOULD HAVE CHOOSE SOMEONE PRETTIER NOT SUCH A FACK SLUT.

  • AH

    Janet: You need to get laid. Maybe that’ll get rid of some of that pent up energy.

  • selwyse

    Can’t wait to see this movie!! Christian will be great (and Heath, too). Ok, don’t get me wrong, I love Maggie G and she is actingwise a vast improvement over Katie Holmes . . .but that pic of her is from SUCH a bad angle!! Makes her look like she has man arms =(

  • kelana

    looks good!

  • SILVIA

    THIS MOVIE LOOKS GOOD

  • dorothy

    I am dieing for this movie to come out :) It is going to be so good!! Christian Bale will be so HOT! =D

  • meemee

    Luv Christian !! I so can’t wait to see this sequel !

  • Lydia

    Bale looks smaller and old. Ledger Im not sure is a wise choice for the Joker. Rather see Katie back than ugly beeyotch like Maggie.

  • Gina

    Bale is not as hot from Begins.He looks so skinny and more like Patrick Bateman instead of Bruce Wayne.

  • Mr.J

    If not for my man Gary Oldman I wont bother watching this film because I cannot stand Maggie Gyllenhaal and Heath Ledger.
    Their acting is average and they’re ugly.

  • DC

    The look of the Joker is a laughingstock.

  • Isla

    I hope Maggie Gyllenhaal gets killed by the Joker.

  • bdj

    The stills look cool. Heath should be an interesting Joker. It will be fun to see if he can top Jack N.’s campy joker.

  • Daniel

    janet,

    What the hell is wrong with you, fool?! Your holier-than-thou extremism is nauseating. Essentially, you’re saying she’s “mean” and “sexual.” Quick, someone call Amnesty International!

    Dumb fuck!

  • Mona

    Pic 2…why does Bale look thin and so old? He’s still good looking but has bad genes. I dont wonna hype this movie too much because I might end up being disappointed.
    Yuuuuckkkk why do we have a fat,uglylooking and old Rachel Dawes now?

    Bring on Batman and the Joker because the romance factor is hell eversince Maggie was attached on this.

  • [~Famous~]

    This movie will rock, even though I’ll have to close my eyes every single time super-fug maggie is on the screen.

  • magnus

    This movie is the already the best movie of the decade and they’re not even done shooting.

    The script is just too damned good.

  • Watchmen

    Batman the best movie of the decade???? Are you high Magnus?
    Im betting right now NOT ALL BATMAN FANS will be gushing about this movie. There will always be Burtonites and fanatics not happy that their version of Batman or the Joker was not fulfilled.
    I have read the TDK spoilers and side scripts and its really original.Its just like any other superhero flick except a bit on the realistic side but most of it is so predictable.

    Batman will not be in America’s Film Institute or win an Oscars.
    Other geeks say the same thing that Iron Man is the best,Spiderman but boy did they hammer Sam Raimi. Fanboys thought Superman Returns will be the best or top the box office of Marvel films but fanboys hate Bryan Singer now. Fanboys are fickle.

  • FF

    That’s not the Joker that’s Heath Ledger with makeup.

  • KarenA

    Those are great, Jared. I love the one of Joker kicking and the one of Batman and Joker in the interrogation room!

  • KarenA

    Actually, gotta amend. Also love the one of Christian just smiling (02) and the one of him and the cityscape! Thanks again for these, Jared. Saved ‘em!

  • selwyse

    wow, what did Maggie G do to inspire all of this hatred, except just be an unconventional beauty . ..

  • Amy

    I love it, scarred Joker, Maggie, the fake batman cluster. Hehehe

  • V

    Maggie is hated because not only she is fugly but she thinks America deserves 9-11 and like Rosie O’Donnell the dog feels America is behind it. Maggie also dissed Katie and dissed Batman calling it a little film and that other action movies are silly. But ofcourse Nolan’s Batman is superior than the rest of the action movies.

    ROTFLMAO!!!!!!

  • marga

    can’t wait for this movie. maybe christian didn’t wanna get as big as in begins so he can fit into the batman costume. i heard it was tight before. not looking forward to seeing maggie. doubt they’ll have any chemistry.

  • Tanya

    Joker wants to kill Mags because the Gyllenhaal he thinks that’s hot is JAKE.

    I agree we got a slimmer Batman this time. The only Batman for me is Kilmer.

  • marga

    christian’s looking a wee bit older but still hot! i doubt he and maggie will have chemistry! they should have cast someone else.

  • Angelina

    Only Michael Caine looks the same and healthy. Hmmm no more steroids for Bale this time around?

  • http://www.tropicaan.com Matthew Hartman

    Looks great!

  • Juliet

    Christian looks wrinkly. Nolan said at the Wizard con that he’s not doing Justice League because he’s already burnt out with Batman.
    They all look burnt out to me. I rather see Katie than Maggie so I hope Maggie’s Dawes gets Jokerized. Im cautiously optimistic about this one. Ranking my Batmen:
    Micheal Keaton
    Christian Bale
    Val Kilmer
    Adam West
    George Clooney

  • Raichill

    I have to agree Maggie was a poor choice for this role. She isn’t attractive or feminine enough.

  • Amanda

    Bye Christian Bale hello Ben Barnes of Prince Caspian of Narnia.
    I echo the rest that Maggie Gyllenhaal is so not Batman lady material.My poor eyes and I need pepto.

  • Corey

    Of course, everyone on here doesn’t like Maggie cause she’s not hot enough to bang up…did it ever occur to anyone that it’s the acting that counts, not how beautiful she is? Oh wait, these are young MEN talking!

  • http://www.workcandy.com dusty

    This franchise has been revitalized so well. Katie Holmes was kind of vacant but Maggie. Ug. I hope they can keep this thing fresh. They have so much great material to pull from. Hopefully the studio execs who wish they could write don’t poke their head into future scripts.

  • http://criticalmassreviews.blogspot.com/ Pete2007

    No offense to the majority of you, this is aimed at Jamet, Mr. J and all the other superficial jackasses. You’re idiots. Judging an ACTOR only on their looks is like judging a doctor on his skills at chess. These people are actors, not models. Keep your idiotic opinions to yourselves in future.

  • NIN

    Bale look f**king hot! Ledger is going to be a great Joker I reckon, dark and an absolute head case.
    I love Bale.

  • Javiperillas

    Ok, let’s see…

    … Christian Bale looks older because -let me think… he IS older? I mean, time goes by, doesn’t it? And well, he looks slimer, ok, but I don’t think that’s too bad as long as he still acts like the Batman. And that, ladies and gentlemen, is something we can never see in still photos.

    The Joker. We’re speaking of a realistic approach to the Batman universe. A full-time white-skinned Joker would NEVER look realistic, and everyone would end saying “It looks fake”, as it happened to Nicholson’s Joker. So this time we have a Joker who already IS suposed to look fake. He puts that make-up on because he wants to, he is not crazy because of that accident that turned his skin white and his lips red… he paints his skin white and his lips red BECAUSE he is crazy. Of course this will not be something everyone will like, but anyway… we’re not going to see if Heath Ledger can be the Joker until he find him acting, and that is something we can never see in still photos (again).

    And about Maggie Gyllenhaal… ok, her face looks like a muffin, but for me it’s a change for good. I mean, Katie Holmes?? Oh, please. I didn’t realize I liked the CHARACTER of Rachel Dawes until I thought of her WITHOUT Katie Holmes’s face attached! Her performance was far from good, so at least we’re going to see something different. And of course, we’re never going to know how she will do until we see her acting… and that’s something we’ve already talked about, isn’t it? :P

    Another movie I will be watching!!

  • Lauren

    Christian Bale is so hot! I love him in his role from the Batman Begins! Hopefully this film will be just as good as Begins.

  • Chelsea

    I’m very interested to see this installment of Batman! I have seen the movie crew filming all around Chicago. For that matter in the building where I am now, they have taken over my office building. I’ll try and sneek some more pictures for you all to see and send them to Jared. I have seen lots of fake dumbies and one even hanging from the ceiling…sort of weird. I do have some pictures o GCP police cars and SWAT team.

  • Halle

    This is Batman not citizen kane the movie and Batman’s women are hardly Oscar winners. Katie has class which Maggie knows nothing about.

    Katie is still better than the rest of the other superhero chicks except Margot Kidder and Michelle Pheiffer.

    So true Bale looks old for his age. Yes he is older in this movie but have you seen other actors in their 40′s? they are still hot and VF made a lists of actors in their 40′s who are way hotter than the 30′s. Batfans are worried how he will look for part 3.

  • Kylie

    Maggie can act??????

    showing her saggy tits and having sex is equivalent to Paris Hilton sex tapes. I think most actresses and even regular people can do that.

  • ALI

    I LOVE CHRISTIAN BALE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    THANKS JARED!

  • Green Genes

    Maggie Gyllenhaal is beautiful. Much nicer than your typical blonde whore. Plus she’s an amazing actress. Secretary was one of the best female roles ever played.
