The Dark Knight
The Dark Knight mistake picture

Continuity mistake: During the interrogation scene, when Batman beats up Joker, Joker's hands are holding Batman's forearms upside down (from underneath). When the frame changes his hands are now on top of Batman's forearms, then it cuts back and his hands are under again.

Visible crew/equipment: During Batman's interrogation of the Joker, when he picks him up and slams him against the wall, for a very brief moment you can see the camera and the cameraman in the reflection of the mirror on the right.

Visible crew/equipment: In opening scene of the aerial view of the building adjacent to the bank, you can see the reflection of the filming helicopter on the left side of the building.

Continuity mistake: During the bank scene, the Joker shoots the bus driver and he falls dead in front of the bus. As the Joker approaches the Bank manager to put the gas can in his mouth, you can still see the body. But after he removes his mask and walks toward the bus, the driver's body is gone.

Continuity mistake: When Joker puts the smoke bomb inside the bank manager's mouth, watch a green sign behind lying on the floor, with a tree painted on it. It has a stick on top which moves around between shots with no one touching it.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: In the interrogation scene, when Joker sits on the floor, in one shot there's cracks all over the wall, but in the next one there is only one crack, and then again it is full of cracks.

Continuity mistake: In the chasing scene where the Peterbilt truck hits a swat van, the truck's right front light is damaged. In the next scene, the light seems to be undamaged and then, damaged again.

Continuity mistake: When Dent dies, his right arm's position keeps changing between shots.

Sacha

Continuity mistake: The Joker fires a rocket-propelled grenade at the Tumbler, sending it crashing end over end. In the final tumble, as it loses the last of its momentum, it's rolling to rest on its roof. The camera angle then changes and it's suddenly regained momentum, rolling again so it lands on its wheels.

Revealing mistake: In the scene where Batman is taking down the SWAT members to prevent them from harming the wrong people, one of the SWAT guys is lying on the ground and attempts to stand up. The clip for his gun contacts the ground and flexes like a rubber stunt gun would, not a real clip and gun.

Continuity mistake: When Joker is looking for Harvey, he grabs Rachael and holds her head. Camera cuts and his grip on her head/face changed instantly.

A Demon

Factual error: When they reconstruct the bullet in the scanner, the fingerprint goes the whole way down to the bottom of the bullet. This would not be the correct pattern, as there should be a blank ring at the bottom where the bullet would have been covered by the casing.

Other mistake: The television that Lau used to communicate with the crime lords was a regular set carried in by Lau's operatives and placed on the table (which didn't have a mic or camera on it), and there were no cameras in the room. So how was Lau able to see/hear/interact with the crime lords?

Revealing mistake: In the opening sequence, when the robbers are on the zip line, two Chicago Police squad cars (white cars with blue markings), not Gotham PD (blue with white markings) can be seen blocking off Van Buren Street for the filming.

Revealing mistake: As Harvey Dent is tied up in the warehouse with the explosive barrels talking to Rachel, if you look in the lower right hand corner of the screen, a green blanket on the floor moves up slightly as Harvey tries to get out of his restraints. It's too far away for Harvey to touch. A person's fingers or hand is also momentarily visible in the previous establishing shot when Dent is regaining consciousness.

Continuity mistake: When Eric Roberts gets in the car with Two-Face, the car seems to go from being parked to going full-speed in a split-second. As he's getting in the car, Roberts is talking to his driver, and just as he sits down, he sees Two-Face, and the background appears to be moving by very quickly behind him. The car wouldn't have had time to even pull away from the curb yet.

Revealing mistake: When Harvey Dent turns on the Bat Signal, Lt. Gordon comes out of the rooftop stairwell. As the door opens you can see that there is no back to the stairwell enclosure, and you can see the city.

Continuity mistake: During the chase on Lower Fifth, the refuse truck's left headlamp is alternately present and lit, or completely missing (not just unlit).

Visible crew/equipment: When the Joker first meets the mobsters you can see the reflection of the green screen on the table.

Continuity mistake: When the Joker reveals to Batman that he's also got Rachel, Batman slams the Joker into the wall. The tiles behind the Joker's head have little cracks in them. Cut to another shot from the side, all the cracks are gone.

Continuity mistake: When the Tumbler has been hit by the Joker's RPG, the camera changes to showing the GPD van trying to regain control, but the Tumbler is nowhere to be seen in the foreground.

Continuity mistake: After the Batmobile is hit by an RPG, Batman steers the car through the concrete barrier out of the traffic lane. As the car crashes through another wall, it lifts from the rear and the driver side rear tire is seen flying off the car. For the rest of the scene, all the tires are still attached.

johnrosa

Revealing mistake: In the opening scene, the Joker is picked up by some of the other crew members. While he is sitting in the SUV, he inserts a magazine into his Glock pistol and pulls back the slide to chamber a round. However, when he does, the slide locks back, indicating that the magazine is empty.

Continuity mistake: When the Joker first opens fire on the prison van, you can see that his pistol locks open as if it were empty. However, if you look closely, you can see the empty shell is stuck between the slide and the chamber. In the next shot, he keeps on firing like nothing ever happened.

Friso94

Continuity mistake: When the Joker is taken to Gambol, he shoots a pool ball. We hear it connect with another ball, and then five seconds later the ball reappears. When it reappears it is moving too fast to have taken the time it did.

Visible crew/equipment: In the scene where the convoy is driving through the entrance of the tunnel you can see the black helicopter the film crew uses right behind the police helicopter.

Continuity mistake: On lower 5th, the SWAT driver yells lock and load. When he does he has 2 cable ties in loops on his left hand side of his jacket that are exactly equal in size, both the loop and the "tail." We see outside the van for a few seconds. When the camera returns to the driver, the loops are now different sizes as evident by one having a longer "tail".

A Demon

Revealing mistake: When the Joker shoots the bank manager and he stumbles to the floor, you can make out the shape of knee pads under his suit.

A Demon

Continuity mistake: The bank manager shoots one robber in the back with the shotgun. We then see clown dive behind a counter for cover. In this shot, the manager has left the office and is a fair distance away from it. Camera cuts and he's just outside his office again.

A Demon

Factual error: Harvey Two face should be incapable of pronouncing certain consonants due to the incomplete seal over his mouth. He has no such impairment.

Trivia

To prepare for his role as the Joker, Heath Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character's psychology, posture and voice (the last one he found most difficult to do). He started a diary, in which he wrote the Joker's thoughts and feelings to guide himself during his performance. He was also given Alan Moore's comic "Batman: The Killing Joke" and "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth" to read. Ledger also took inspiration from Alex in A Clockwork Orange(1971) and Sid Vicious.
