Lau or Mr. Lau is a supporting antagonist in Christoper Nolan's second installment of his Batman franchise; The Dark Knight. He's a Chinese crime boss.


Lau is the CEO of Lau Security Investments, a major business in Hong Kong whose success drew the attentions of Wayne Enterprises. He and other crime bosses came up with a plan to protect their money from both the GCPD and The Joker, who referred to him as "the television" causing Lau to turn off his television, but one thing they forgot, Batman has no jurisdiction. He eventually got arrested by Batman. Joker ends up capturing Lau and left him on top of Joker's half of the mob money. He died because Joker burned his half of the money which he may have burned to death or the smoke suffocated him.
