Not sure if this was mentioned. The wrestler Sting had years ago begun to copy the mood and look of The Crow, which actually became pretty popular. Now he's imitating the joker, which is actually, well embarrasing. Anyways, you be the judge.

I made a thread like this back when the DVD first came out, my first pointing out of influences from TDK were much more tongue-in-cheek though

TDK Is Influencing Practically ...Everything.

But it's nice to see people notice how much more the movie has "changed things", if you will.

Aziz Ansari has a joke in his stand-up act where he chastises certain members of his audience after asking them to raise their hands if they've never seen The Dark Knight.

Jay-Z quotes Harvey Dent in the song "So Appalled" on Kanye West's My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy album.

Just go on youtube and search Aziz Ansari- Harris. I would just post the link, but the bit has some swearing. He only mentions TDK for just a few seconds in the beginning, though.

*I hope that's what you were asking for.

Anyone seen that political anti-EPA ad on TV with the bull rider? The rodeo clown has his face painted up like the Joker (weird too they mention Obama's name right when it focuses on the clown's face)...?

edit: here's the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Wssm9Hg9jc

you can see the clown's face clearly 21 seconds in, could just be a regular clown, but it strongly remsembles the Joker's face imo)

Dean Ambrose is very Joker-esque.

Whiplash always felt like Iron Man 2's attempt at making their version of Joker to me.

I could name the interrogation scene of the Avengers and Skyfall, but that's too obvious. What caught my eye more was the cross cutting of Bond in the Tube and Q relaying him information, the way the camera swirls around Q is very reminiscent of the way the camera acts around Lucious Fox in the climax of The Dark Knight.

And this might necessarily not be an inspiration, but the way the love interest is swiftly killed reminds me of this film. Only I found it more chilling in Skyfall.
