Dale Pipe asked "Why so serious?", the phrase uttered by Heath Ledger's character in the film The Dark Knight, after he attacked a man who was using a urinal at Belle Vue Leisure Centre, Consett, County Durham.
The former chef, who had armed himself with a number of knives, was then overpowered by staff and went onto barricade himself into a toilet.
His victim suffered multiple injuries and had to be airlifted to hospital for treatment.
Pipe admitted attempted murder and three charges of possessing an offensive weapon at a hearing in May.
