Without a doubt, Christopher Nolan's The Dark Knight is one of the highest-rated superhero films of all time, with phrases that have gone down in history.
But… what if Harvy Dent was wrong? The movie of The dark knight has a very interesting character, such as the district attorney Harvy Dent (Aaron Eckhart) who wants to fight crime, the mafia and corruption. But when suffering the attack of Joker (Heath Ledger) that burns half his face and when his beloved dies Rachel Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal), becomes a villain seeking revenge.

Before all that happens, there is an interesting scene in the middle of the movie from The dark knight where Harvey Dent tells Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) the famous phrase of "Either you die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself turned into a villain." Bruce agrees with him, since he knows it cannot be Batman forever and needs someone like Harvy Dent to fight crime. But… What if this sentence was not correct?
Attention SPOILERS from The Boys. The great superhero series of Amazon based on the comic written by Garth ennis and drawn by Darick robertson. It shows us that the fine line between good and evil is very difficult to see. And someone can be a hero by committing some reprehensible act and returning to the right side of the situation. Therefore, it is not necessary to be as judgmental as Harvy Dent from the movie The Dark Knight since there are many paths, instead of just two. As they are the absolute good or corrupted until being evil.

The Boys scene that proves it.
At one point in the second season of The Boys, there is a very intense scene when Annie / Starlight (Erin Moriarty) Y Butcher (Karl Urban) must transport Hughie (Jack Quaid) to hospital. Along the way, Starlight accidentally kills an innocent man. She explains that she is full of guilt, but that little by little the bitterness in her heart is diminishing. It is at that moment when The Boys take away all reason from The Dark Knight. Since Starlight is corrupted by her actions, but that does not make her a villain and she is still the heroine.
Annie's story shows that the best heroes have major flaws and can't be perfect 100% of the time. Instead of heroes like Harvey Dent being suddenly corrupted by personal misfortune, the protagonists of The Boys constantly walk a tightrope between good and evil. This is an ethical balancing act that the Dark Knight movie ignores. Since the phrase of "The end justifies the means", could replace "Either you die a hero or you live long enough to see yourself turned into a villain". In fact, even Batman has had very dark times that he is sure to later regret. But what he never does is stop being the great hero of DC Comics.
Here we leave you the best phrases of the trilogy of The Dark Knight.
