Retro-Reimaginings of The Dark Knight Trailer

Posted by Kris Madden Categories: Movies, DC Comics,

2008’s The Dark Knight was not the first time Batman faced off against his archenemy Joker on the big screen, or even the small screen. Thanks to YouTube’s community of film-editing hobbyists, there are three trailers for previous Batman films replaced with the audio track from The Dark Knight trailer. Enjoy.

Batman: The Animated Series (1992)

The best treatment of The Dark Knight trailer’s audio is a clip made from episodes of the early 90’s TV cartoon Batman: The Animated Series. The cartoon becomes a Gothic “Hanna-Barbera” nightmare and seamlessly goes along with soundtrack as if it was meant to be that way all along.

Batman (1989)

Tim Burton‘s 1989 Batman is given a healthy dose of Heath Ledger’s, already classic, Joker voicing as well. In this cut, Heath’s vocals amp Nicholson’s portrayal of the Joker to a new level of crazy-creepy-psycho-villainy perfect for a re-envisioning of The Dark Knight trailer.


Batman: The Movie (1966)

The classic 1960’s Batman gets a dark makeover with the replacement of its audio track. Once again, Ledger’s overdubbing brings a new level of insanity to Cesar Romero’s Joker performance.
