I believe that whatever doesn't kill you, simply makes you... stranger.— Heath Ledger
Skyrocket Batman Movie quotations
No! Try not. Do, or do not. There is no try.
I don't believe in superheroes but I love Batman movies.
There's a part of every person that is entertained by the idealistic, the fantastic.
...some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.
I'm not interested in a realistic look - not at all, not ever. Every film should look the way I feel.
If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal, you become something else entirely.
Sometimes you just can't get rid of a bomb!
Some men just want to watch the world burn
All you need to make a movie is a girl and a gun.
A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
You either die a hero or live long enough to become the villain.
You can call me Joker. And as you can see, I'm a lot happier.
I think movies are getting dumber, actually. Where it used to be 50/50 and it's 3% good and 97% stupid.
If you make yourself more than just a man, if you devote yourself to an ideal and if they can't stop you, you become something else entirely - legend, Mr Wayne.
You'll hunt me. You'll condemn me. Set the dogs on me. Because that's what needs to happen. Because sometimes truth isn't good enough. Sometimes people deserve more. Sometimes people deserve to have their faith rewarded.
We work in an environment where your options are to do, you know, Batman 10, so when you get to do a movie that's a really great film like this, people really step up to the plate and enjoy it.
Great moments are born from great opportunities.
Let's put a smile on that face!
I seek … the means to fight injustice. To turn fear against those who prey on the fearful.
Have you ever danced with the Devil in the pale moonlight?
To make a great film need three things - the script, the script and the script.
Look at every action movie in Hollywood.
Every leading man from Spider-Man to Batman to James Bond, 'Bourne Identity', every one of them possesses martial arts skills.
If you're good at something, never do it for free.
Rather like Batman, I embody the themes of the movie which are the values of family, courage and compassion and a sense of right and wrong, good and bad and justice.
Way back in the '70s, I was approached to talk about the story I'd write for a Spider-Man movie. They also talked to me about Batman. I had to think about it, but that was way, way back when.
Now comes the part where I relieve you, the little people, of the burden of your failed and useless lives. But remember, as my plastic surgeon always said: if you gotta go, go with a smile.
One of the first movies I ever saw was 'Batman,' based on the TV series with Adam West and Burt Ward.
Decent people shouldn't live here. They'd be happier some place else.

If someone stands in the way of true justice, you simply walk up behind them, and stab them in the heart.
I won't kill you but I don't have to save you.
Ladies. Gentlemen. You have eaten well. You've eaten Gotham's wealth. Its spirit. Your feast is nearly over. From this moment on...none of you are safe.
'The Dark Knight,' for me, has the same problem that every other 'Batman' movie has. It's not about Batman. I think Heath Ledger is just phenomenal and the character of the Joker is beautifully written. He has a particular philosophy that he carries throughout the movie. He has one of the best bad guy schemes.
I have given a name to my pain, and it is Batman.
The training is nothing! The will is everything! The will to act.
There's so much technology [in the Batman movies] that's unbelievable and seems unreal, so it's hard trying to get the audience to believe that it all exists. So we got Morgan Freeman to tell them that it's real. And that is why Christopher Nolan is a genius.
I'm gonna do four or five of these movies, and it's going to become my career.
I'll have to keep expanding the bat suit, because I get fatter every year. I'll be bankrupt. I'll be out opening shopping malls, going from appearance to appearance in a cheesy van. On playing Batman
We like Batman - we understand him, we suffer with him.
On the other hand, we want to be Superman. But they're conflicting philosophies. Let's bring them together in one movie and see how we, as an audience, wrestle with our inner demons.
We deserved it. I mean, if you get a pummeling, you deserved it. But isn't it wonderful to remember a time that America was once so innocent that all we had to worry about was the next "Batman" movie?
I make the joke, all the time, that if you have the word "man" and a number in the title, like Batman 2, Spider-Man 2 or Iron Man 12, you'll get it made. The kind of movies I make, studios don't make them. I've made a lot of movies, and at Castle Rock, we've made 125 movies. None of them get made at a studio. I've got to scrounge around for money, every time. I just like to tell stories. I'm a storyteller, so I want the most people to see it.
I remember when we were doing "Batman Begins" and to watch Chris Nolan go from "Memento" to "Batman" and take that leap from such a smaller size to a big movie, that's inspiring. But those movies are their own type of art and you have to really understand it and really know that world and I would have to take a long time to figure that out.Because my brain doesn't naturally go there.
