I never understood the last lines of the Dark Knight , what’s the point of “hes the hero Gotham deserves but not the it needs right now” “Commissioner James Gordon : Because he’s the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So, we’ll hunt him, because he can take it. A Dark Knight .”
They do actually ” need ” Batman to keep protecting Gotham , but after how they wanted him to turn himself in/blamed him for the city’s problems, they don’t really “deserve” him. I get the meaning of the actual line in the movie, but to be honest only the second part fully makes sense.
Batman was the first symbol for Gotham, and he inspired Dent just as he ( Batman ) intended to do . Dent was, therefore, the “white knight” who would come along and save Gotham, in the eyes of the public and in the eyes of Batman . Notice, however, that Gordon was always more skeptical and less trusting of Dent .
The ending of ‘The Dark Knight ‘ sees Jim Gordon, injured but alive, explaining to his blonde-haired, blue-eyed son why Batman is now on the run as a fugitive, even though “he didn’t do anything wrong.”
“If this man is everything that you say he is, then this city needs me.” – Bruce Wayne, The Dark Knight Rises. After Alfred alerts Bruce that Bane is wreaking havoc on Gotham, Bruce makes the decision to go back out into the city as Gotham’s hero, Batman .
To know just how alone you really are?”
Gordon: He’s the hero Gotham deserves , but not the one it needs right now. So we’ll hunt him. Because he can take it. Because he’s not our hero .
Batman is a true hero . If their was a gotham city, I wouldn’t go if he’s not there to protect us. What makes him a hero is not his inteligence or gadgets, but his devotion to not letting people go through what he went through. In that sense, he doesn’t want others be hurt like he was when he was just a kid.
The quote means that Gotham deserves a hero that will fight for the city and do what is right no matter what the personal cost. Someone that will stand up to the city’s criminal element without corruption. Batman epitomizes those ideals.
He wants to show the world that everyone is a monster when pushed onto the abyss. When Rachel died, Harvey lost his mind, he made it his personal mission to kill the person who couldn’t save her, Jim Gordon. The joker pushed Harvey onto the madness from where there is no return, this is why Harvey became bad .
Harvey is able to do what he does in the light — which makes him Batman’s hero — and any person who’s batman’s hero is a clear protagonist. The Dark Knight’s true hero is Harvey Dent , a character who technically lives up to his creed and dies before he becomes Harvey Two-Face, the film’s villain .
Batman’s mission is to protect Gotham, so The Joker figures that Batman would go to any lengths, even revealing his own secret identity, to ensure the safety of the city’s inhabitants – at least in theory. In practice, he’s lucky he’s rich enough to pay for all the property damages he caused throughout the movie.
That’s right: Batman and Joker are half- brothers , at least according to Penny. The movie never explicitly makes clear whether that’s true or not. Though the film is populated with comic book characters, no iteration of Batman has revealed Bruce is related to his ultimate archenemy. (He’s famously an only child.)
Comic book characters have a long and storied history of dying and coming back to life, but fans might be surprised to know that Joker , Batman’s most iconic foe for nearly a century, dies in the Caped Crusader’s very first book, Batman #1.
