'Dark' is subjective, but I compare the tone and look of Batman '89 to Nolan's films. There's nothing really unique in Nolan's trilogy in those terms, it looks and feels like most modern films. The general feel also, grittier and gothic. The look of Anton Furst's Gotham City, etc.

He's much darker than Nicholson's. For instance that TV broadcast where he terrorizes the copycat Batman was creepier than any scene with Nicholson's Joker.
The poor acting of the "copycat Batman" ruined that scene. Yeah, dark, but only if you compare it to a disney film.

Seeing Joker's girlfriend take off her mask to reveal her scarred face was way more ****ed up than anything shown in The Dark Knight.
