]In the dark knight the hero’s journey is only completed to an extent. When compared to the five point story arc it fits in perfectly however when compared to the hero story arc The Dark Knight only fits with some of the points and tend to skip over key points that most superhero movies have. For instance the crisis (which is suppose to happen at the end of the movie) happens at the end of the movie. Yes you could argue that Rachel death is a crisis and that is true however the two boats is a true crisis. I would argue that The Dark Knight is the first half of the journey and the squeal is second half of the journey.
