I received a lot of emails today reminding me that it’s the 5 year anniversary of Heath Ledger’s death. Ledger left the world too soon on January 22, 2008 due to an accidental drug overdose. He shocked audiences all over the world with his portrayal of the Joker in The Dark Knight. In 2009, Ledger was honored with a posthumous Oscar award for his chilling performance.
Here we are five years later and I think the best way to honor Heath on Batman News is to look back at his most memorable role… the Joker from The Dark Knight. I’ve added a gallery with over 95 HQ photos from The Dark Knight after the break.
