Re: Heath ledger Joker and Harley Quinn
The only way Harley Quinn would work in the universe Nolan constructed is if she was characterized as she was in Birds of Prey: as a Moriarty-like psychologist manipulating behind the scenes. The moment she starts behaving like a kid as she did in TAS, the illusion is broken.
"I defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the B---- of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?"
One of the best soundtrack sections. Ever.
