You could make the argument that the Batman comic books and movies have always been a dark, psychotic franchise. However, with today’s culture of unbelievably real special effects, and the selling of superhuman fantasies and violent power, it’s a wonder that so many people today enjoy living in a power trip fantasy land, which often includes gratuitous  violence. Add on top of movies video games like The Dark Knight shooting games, 1st-person shooter games, MMORPG’s, console games with fake guns you can shoot at the TV screen with impeccable aim, Batman shooting adventure games, etc. But the scary part is when you mix in people who don’t separate fantasy from real. There is a recipe for disaster.
 
 

 
 
Heath Ledger, who played the Joker, died from a drug overdose shortly after filming The Dark Knight. Michael Caine, who was also in the film, said Ledger threw himself into the character of the Joker so completely, that at times he was so frightening he forgot his own lines. Did he have trouble detaching from the character, thus making his insomnia worse? Seems that question will never be answered.

Video games today look so real, you would think they’re live-action movies. But there’s one big different between a movie and a video game… You control the action. Which also means you control the amazingly real violence and shooting via assault rifles, shotguns, handguns, rocket launchers, you name it. Bombs, booby-traps, anarchy, massacres, wars. If it’s violent and provides the powerless with a sense of power and dominance, it’s selling and you can virtually live in that all too real fantasy.

A famous quote from The Dark Knight, delivered by the Joker: “Introduce a little anarchy, upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos, I’m an agent of chaos , and you know the thing about chaos? It’s fair.” In the mind of the psychotic, things like this have the potential to be taken too seriously.
