Batman The Dark Knight Pinball Machine by Stern
Batman The Dark Knight Pinball Machine by Stern was manufactured in 2008. It is based on the action-adventure movie, The Dark Knight. Pinball Hall of Fame artists Kevin O’Connor and Margaret Hudson created the artwork, and Ken Hale did the sound.
The follow-up to Batman Begins, The Dark Knight reunites Christopher Nolan and star Christian Bale, who reprises the role of Batman/Bruce Wayne in his continuing war on crime. With the help of Lieutenant Jim Gordon and District Attorney Havey Dent, Batman sets out to destroy organized crime in Gotham for good. The triumvirate proves to be effective, but they soon find themselves prey to a rising criminal mastermind known as The Joker, who thrusts Gotham into anarchy and forces the Dark Knight even closer to crossing the fine line between hero and vigilante.
