A playing card from the production of Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight.
Billionaire Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) has become a hero to his city as his alter-ego Batman, but has lost the woman he loves to aspiring DA Harvey Dent (Aaron Eckhart). The emergence of a new threat brings the two men together, but can justice prevail against a force so chaotic as The Joker (Heath Ledger)?
This card and others like it were made for use in the production, and ultimately given away as part of the film's viral promotion campaign in 2008.
The Joker used playing cards throughout the film, and this style of jester design was shown just above the central card in the scene where Judge Surillo (Nydia Rodriguez Terracina) was murdered by a car bomb, leaving hundreds of the Joker’s “calling cards” behind.
Made of stiff card with a textured semi-gloss finish, the card features a red, orange and yellow, flipped mirrored illustration of a demon wielding a club, with the word ‘Joker’ in the lower right and upper left corners. The reverse of the card is orange with a Longma-like creature in black.
The card remains in overall excellent condition.
Materials: Paper, Card.
