10 Insanely Dark Joker Moments That'll Never Make It To Film

From killing children to skinning people alive...

Scott Snyder's Death of the Family arc was a reminder of just how dark and suggestive The Joker can be, with him tormenting Batman in a way that we had not seen for a many a year. The Dark Knight's long-time nemesis was back with a disgusting, traumatic, sadistic bang... and many comic book fans absolutely loved it. Whilst many may think of the Joker from the Adam West-starring Batman series (played by Cesar Romero) or of the mischievous and entertaining Mark Hamill-voiced Joker in the legendary Batman: The Animated Series, this is a villain who really is a piece of work when he wants to be, and someone who certainly pushes the boundaries of good taste and decency when given the chance. On the big screen, fans have been given vastly different versions of the Clown Prince of Crime from Jack Nicholson and Heath Ledger. Whereas Ledger's Joker was clearly the darker of the two, there are still a whole host of heinous acts that Mr J's carried out over the years that surely could not make it to a live-action feature. The Joker is someone who thinks nothing of mass death, torture, rape, and of making his crimes and punishment sometimes as personal as you can get. So with that said, it's time to look at 10 of the Harlequin of Hate's darkest moments that are highly unlikely to ever make it to the big screen at any point soon.
