Throwback Thursday is a weekly update that we do here on Caught on Set. Every Thursday we post pictures from the set of a movie you haven’t seen in a while, or possibly ever.
This might be the oldest movie we've ever thrown it back to... or the exact opposite. 2008's The Dark Knight was to be Heath Ledger's second to last movie and featured him in perhaps his most memorable role as the Joker. The Dark Knight's cast also featured the amazing talents of Christian Bale, Aaron Eckhart, Michael Caine, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Gary Oldman and Morgan Freeman.
I know 2008 isn't that long ago, but 4 years is a pretty long time. Besides with the release and subsequent success of The Dark Knight Rises makes this week's Throwback more relevant. I wonder if Heath Ledger had not tragically taken his own life, would they have tried to bring him back for TDKR? He was so great in the role, even winning the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor, it's hard to imagine him not being involved in TDKR if he were still available.
