There's an aura surrounding Heath Ledger's performance in The Dark Knight; his turn as The Joker has already become legendary. You talk to not only comic book fans, but film aficionados, and all of them will tell you his performance is one of the greatest from the last decade. His death only solidified the mystifying nature of his performance, earning him a posthumous Oscar for Best-Supporting Actor. It also makes these previously unreleased set photos even more surreal.

John Caglione Jr. was the man behind The Joker's make-up, and has released brand-new, previously unseen set photos from The Dark Knight
