Bruce Wayne and his alter ego Batman have been one of the most complex characters in pop culture, endlessly analyzed, since his first appearance 75 years ago. From comics, to television and to film, Batman and his creators have designed a layered, flawed and fascinating character. Never was this truer than in director Christopher Nolan’s brilliant Dark Knight Trilogy, beginning with 2005’s Batman Begins, continuing with 2008’s The Dark Knight and ending with 2012’s The Dark Knight Rises. Nolan essentially stripped Batman and it’s themes to their bare bones and created a world that both honored and challenged what we knew of this character. Nolan’s trilogy examines ideas of integrity, morality, chaos, heroism and faith.

**Obvious spoilers ahead for the entire Nolan series**

Heroism

“Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. »
