It’s a foregone conclusion that ‘The Dark Knight’ is the best comic-book and superhero movie ever made — and it will probably forever remain so. There are at least a dozen of comic-book movies that get made every year and more than hundred have been made since the release of ‘The Dark Knight’, but still no single movie has been able to match the pedigree of Nolan’s film. Have you wondered why?

By reimagining the approach to make a film based on a comic-book, he proved that superhero films can be thought-provoking and entertaining at the same time. And by making a film that carried several underlying themes of chaos, anarchy, order, heroism, morality, he transcended the boundaries of a conventional action film.
