Batman Film ‘The Dark Knight’ Is Officially Added To The National Film Registry

Batman has finally gotten the recognition he deserves as one of the most iconic legends to come out of the United States.

According to USAToday, the 2008 Christopher Nolan adaption The Dark Knight has officially been added into the National Film Registry. It will now be preserved in the annals of American cinema history, a very deserving award.

All I can is, Wow! That is fantastic. Forget comic books, Batman is one of the greatest myths to come out of America. He is permeated every level of culture and is one of the most recognizable superheroes internationally. The Dark Knight is a near-perfect adaptation of the character, played by Christian Bale, and his most famous antagonist The Joker, played by the late-great actor Heath Ledger.

“This is not only a great honor,” Christopher Nolan said according to Culture Crave. “…this is also a tribute to all of the amazing artists and writers who have worked on the great mythology of Batman over the decades.”

Here is the trailer for the modern classic:

For those unfamiliar, the National Film Registry is a branch of the Library of Congress that perseveres “culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant films.” They add twenty-five films every year and the DC Comics / Warner Bros. production The Dark Knight was among those for 2020.
