Trivia: Director of Photogrophay Wally Pfister used several interesting filming techniques on the film, eventually earning him a "Best Cinematography" Oscar nomination. One of these was how he shot the sword duel between Bruce and Ducard - holding a steadicam and being dragged around the action sitting on a sled.

Trivia: The first thug we see Dr. Crane get off with an insanity defense is named Zsaz. If you look closely you'll see he is covered with scars. In the comics, Zsaz is a homicidal maniac who keep score of the people he kills by marking it on his skin. Every one of those scars is supposed to represent one of his victims. And although you don't see it in the movie, his body is covered.

Trivia: The Batmobile holds about 10 gallons of gas, but only gets single digits in mileage.

Batman: It's not who I am underneath but what I do that defines me.



When the Tumbler leaps toward the steeply-angled rooftop (the shingled roof with dormers), beyond it is a tall office building on the opposite side of a highway that is running perpendicular to the Tumbler's direction of travel (and parallel to the face of the office building). In order to leap onto this highway, the Tumbler will need to make a hard left or right turn, as going straight will take it across the highway into the face of the office building. But as the Tumbler reaches the end of the angled roof, suddenly the office building has moved far to the left, and the highway is now nearly in line with the Tumbler's direction, running into the distance next to the office building, and passes along the left side of the shingled roof, making it easy for the Tumbler to leap easily onto the roadway.
