The Dark Knight Trilogy is a superhero film trilogy, based on the DC Comics character Batman. The trilogy consisted of Batman Begins (2005), The Dark Knight (2008), & The Dark Knight Rises (2012).
Following the critical failure and box office disappointment of Batman & Robin (1997), Warner Bros. decided to reboot the film franchise. The trilogy stars Christian Bale as Bruce Wayne/Batman, Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth, Gary Oldman as James Gordon, and Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox. All three films were directed, written and produced by Christopher Nolan.
Each film in the series was a box office success, in particular the second and third films, which both earned over $1 billion worldwide. As well being considered a massive improvement over the previous series of Batman films, the trilogy has received near-universal acclaim from critics and audiences, being praised for Nolan's direction, the performances of the main cast, its thematic storytelling and depth, being more grounded in reality and darker in tone, breaking certain superhero clichés, its reinvention of the source material, focusing on Bruce Wayne as the central character, its major use of practical effects over computer generated imagery, and for being a complete story-arc. The trilogy has gained widespread recognition as being both the greatest achievement of the superhero film genre and three of the best films of all time. Because the trilogy was meant to be a stand-alone series, the character is set to be rebooted once again for the upcoming DC Comics' shared universe films, starting with Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016.
