It’s been almost ten years since the classic The Dark Knight was released, the same move that introduced us all to arguably the best portrayal of The Joker all thanks to the late Heath Ledger. But even though everyone and their mom has seen that movie, and even though it made a ton of cash, it is just now that people are realizing a hilarious small detail in the film that you may have missed the first time around.
That small detail we missed occurs when Harvey Dent wakes up in the hospital after burning half of his face off only to be met by the Joker dressed as a nurse. And let’s just take a look at Dent’s reaction to this.
Twitter Keeps Laughing At A Small Detail Everyone Is Just Now Realizing About ‘The Dark Knight’
A great moment in movie history is when Harvey can’t recognize The Joker until he takes off his surgery mask. pic.twitter.com/nFbS8qMn4F

That’s right, folks. Dent didn’t realize it was the Joker until after he took off his mask? I mean, come on now. Didn’t the hair give it away? Or, I don’t know, the clown makeup? Get it together, Dent.
And you just knew that Twitter was going to chime in at this hilarious detail.
This is right up there with Clark Kent taking off his glasses. https://t.co/VndCS8mQEj

“She goes a little heavy on the makeup at work for my taste, but hey who am I to judge?”

She’s at the end of a 30 hour shift, don’t judge her makeup!

I’ve always hated this scene specifically for that reason.

To be fair Joker’s aesthetic is really just hot mess smokey eyes, with concealer that’s too many shades too light. We’ve all been there.
