Continuity mistake: In the scene where the joker fires at Batman using his extra long gun, the barrel is straight and solid, yet when he is forcing Vicki up the Cathedral steps, he collapses the gun into a pistol.

Continuity mistake: Notice The Joker's chin in the bell tower. It's covered in blood when first shown, a shot later it's suddenly just the center of his chin.

Rob245

Character mistake: The newspaper that reveals the combination of products that activates the Joker's poison has at least two grammar mistakes on the front page. The word "deodorant's" should not have had an apostrophe and the word odoreaters was spelled "odoureaters, " which has the British spelling of the word odor (Gotham City is obviously in the United States, not the UK). (01:17:10)

AD

Continuity mistake: While Vicky is talking with Bruce at the Batcave she has some tears on her face which disappear between shots.

Continuity mistake: When the Joker is giving the money to the people a bill sticks on the top side of the throne which disappears and reappears between shots.

Continuity mistake: When Nic is dangling helplessly above the back alley, Batman changes position on the building's ledge from one shot to the next (note the seam between his boots). (00:06:30)

Revealing mistake: After the Batmobile's pair of machine guns riddles a straight line of bullet holes through a bay door of Axis Chemicals, it drives in and eventually goes on to blow up the plant. It might seem like the bullet holes themselves would weaken the bay door enough for the Batmobile to push through. But instead - as the bay door falls to the ground - notice how a ready-made seam splits apart directly above the line of bullet holes. (01:34:15)

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: Right before the Batmobile is forced to park in front of a tractor's plow, it drives down the same stretch of road twice in consecutive shots (note the swerving car). (01:08:35)

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: At the beginning when both muggers are about to be jumped by Batman, one of them lights a cigarette and reassures his buddy that there's nothing to be afraid of. But while he's talking, the load of cash in his right hand vanishes between shots. (00:05:25)

Continuity mistake: At Gotham Globe when Vicki and Knox are talking about wildlife at the desk, Vicki's black shirt conceals her wristwatch between shots. (00:13:50)

ryguy_1983

Continuity mistake: When Knox walks into Gotham Globe and gets mocked about his recent Batman article, a co-worker hands him a funny Batman drawing just to rub it in. But watch as a coffee cup on the worker's desk turns itself completely around between shots. (00:13:10)

Other mistake: A lady is looking / smiling straight at the camera and crew at the start of the film when a character is trying to get a cab.

Matthew Johnson

Other mistake: In the scene at the beginning, when the robbers take Harold's wallet, the robber who had the gun says "American express card" but, when he says "don't leave home without it" the subtitles say the goon on the left says it, even though you can see the goon on the right move his mouth. (01:04:30)

Tony

Continuity mistake: While Bruce is talking with Vicky at the Batcave he is clean shaven, but after he attacks Axis chemicals he has some stubble on his face.

Continuity mistake: In the shot where Batman deflects Jack Napier's gunshot in the chemical plant, you can see that the makeup around Batman's eyes is not as dark as it is for all other parts of the scene.

Question: Probably a dumb question, but when I first saw this film.I thought that the opening scene where a young family is mugged in an alleyway was supposed to be a flashback to when a young Bruce Wayne lost his parents. Of course we know it isn't, but is that what the filmmakers wanted us to think. Or was it just my way of thinking?

Gavin Jackson

Chosen answer: It foreshadows what will be learned about what happened to Bruce Wayne's family and what set Batman on his path.
