8 Times The Dark Knight Became The Date Knight And Romanced His Own Villains

The Dark Knight is a ladies’ man! And it’s not shocking at all! He has the money, looks, lifestyle everything.  It’s safe enough to call The Dark Knight a billionaire playboy. So when he is romancing other heroes or common people, it is not a shocker. But apparently, he has had some serious romances with his own villains! Weird right? But considering his intense schedule and the fact that he spends more time with these villains than he does with others, it’s not really surprising!

Even Matt Reeves’ The Batman starring Robert Pattinson does show Catwoman played by Zoe Kravitz opposite him. Most of his relationships have ended on a bad note, but he has his way through women! Here are some of his relationships!
