Continuity mistake: When the Joker's henchmen are trashing the museum, one guy puts purple handprints all over a portrait, later the Joker walks by the same portrait and the handprints are gone.

Batman mistake picture

Continuity mistake: After Batman rescues Vicky he has a voice remote for the Batmobile. As the car approaches he orders the car to stop by speaking into the remote and then lowers it to his side. When the camera shot changes showing the car stopping right in front of him, he is still holding the remote to his mouth.

Visible crew/equipment: When the Batmobile is driving itself to Batman and Vicky Vale, you can clearly see a hand turning the steering wheel.

Continuity mistake: During the beginning of the parade sequence, the green-haired, big-nosed balloon is shown being decently high with the Joker's float underneath it. Yet when the Joker is shown dancing in a few close up shots, the face of the balloon is directly behind him.

Continuity mistake: When the "automated" Batmobile is sent into Axis Chemicals to blow it up, six of the Joker's men are shooting at it before it explodes, killing or seriously injuring everyone. Three of these same henchmen are also on the Joker's parade float at the very same time or very shortly afterwards in Gotham Plaza and one of them flies the Joker's escape copter at the end of the movie.

Batman mistake picture

Continuity mistake: When Joker is at the top of the building and taunting them, his chin is red (presumably from his blood when Batman socked him in the jaw.) After he falls off the building, and we see him lying on the ground, his chin is not covered in blood like it was before.

Continuity mistake: When the Joker is shooting Carl Grissom wildly, you can hear the sound of the glass behind him being hit only once. Later when the Joker is sitting at his desk, you can see two bullet holes to the left in the glass.

Continuity mistake: During the Joker's parade, shots looking at the Joker from the side show that his float passes the same shop twice.

Continuity mistake: Harvey Dent is on the telephone while smoking a cigar that is partly ash. Two camera angles later he is smoking a brand new cigar with no visible ash.

Batman mistake picture

Revealing mistake: Harvey Dent and the mayor argue in Dent's office which has an unusual semicircular shape. In the next scene, Alfred uses the telephone in Wayne Manor, and you can see that it's the same room, just with different furniture and dressings.

Madstunts

Continuity mistake: When the mimes open fire on the gangsters, watch the police officers to the left and right above them on the top of the steps. In the overhead shot, right after they open fire, they disappear.

xx:xx:xx

BillyBlake

Continuity mistake: Vicki has five photos of Bruce Wayne on a table. She picks one up, but when she is looking at it, through the back of the photo paper the snapshot looks different from the one she picked up.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: At the end when they show the Joker dead on the pavement after he fell, look closely during the first few seconds of the shot and you'll see him blink twice.

xx:xx:xx

Nancy Burger

Continuity mistake: At the beginning of the movie when the police are standing outside of Axis Chemicals, Eckhardt has very distinct facial hair. In the next shot when they are inside the plant he is clean shaven.

xx:xx:xx

Continuity mistake: At Axis Chemicals, Jack's face is cut by broken glass and has blood gushing out of it. But in the next shot, Jack (probably the stunt double) does not have any blood on him as he goes over the edge of the rail.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When the Joker is having the party with all the balloons, Vicky Vale tries to escape from the gas by getting into a car. If you look at the back window while she is driving off, the window is rolled down, which would have led to her death.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Joker's dead body is shown, the rope around his leg that was tied to the gargoyle is gone.

BillyBlake

Revealing mistake: When Jack and his goons are breaking into Axis Chemicals, there's a scene where they're cutting the lock off of a safe. When the safe door is opened, you can clearly see that there is no locking mechanism in the side of the door.

Add time

Batman mistake picture

Visible crew/equipment: When Batman comes through the skylights in the museum just after Vicki throws water on Joker's face, you can see the stunt cable that lowers Batman down. Batman does use a system of cables and grappling hooks because he has no superpowers, but the cable lowering him down disappears as soon as he hits the ground. It was used to lower the actor down safely, not the character.

Continuity mistake: In the alley, Bruce places two roses on a sidewalk and then walks away. But when Vicki gets to the roses, they have changed positions.

xx:xx:xx

Revealing mistake: When the Joker is in the basement getting surgery, he walks up the stairs laughing and when you see the side of his body before the end of the scene, if you look closely, you can see that his face is still normal Caucasian tone.

Nancy Burger

Revealing mistake: When the shields of the Batmobile are engaged, the metal plates come from nowhere. There isn't a place for them to come from or go to when taken off. And if you watch carefully, the shields coming from the sides of the Batmobile come out of thin air.

Continuity mistake: When Batman initially fires the rope around Joker's ankle at the end, the rope only goes around the statue's legs. The next time we see it, it's somehow re-tied itself, and is now looped around the statue's backside.

xx:xx:xx

Jon Sandys

Revealing mistake: Right after Joker falls off the top of the cathedral, Batman and Vicky fall too and we catch them three times before Batman's grapple digs into the stone. On the second and third time you can actually notice Vicky's face expression doesn't look one bit scared, so you know they're not falling. You can also see there's a screen in the background.

xx:xx:xx

BigOLB

Continuity mistake: When Batman jumps off of the remaining bell at the top of the cathedral, the goon uses Batman's momentum to throw him into a set of stairs, his trajectory parallel with the near wall. Since the goon wasn't standing near the wall when he threw Batman, this angle would not be possible to achieve.

Continuity mistake: When Batman is gliding down to get Napier, there appears to be nothing attached to his belt, but when he is about to land, his rope gun has magically appeared on his belt.

Revealing mistake: When the Joker first appears, you can see a purple splodge on the left side of his neck.

Continuity mistake: When Joker and his goons are trashing the paintings, Joker writes "Joker Was Here" on the painting by the statue. In the next shot the painting disappears.

Continuity mistake: In Joker's hideout, Bob gives Joker the pictures he took and throws the folder that the pictures were in on the floor. But later in the shot above the room, the folder is no where to be found.

Continuity mistake: When Bruce smashes the vase in Vicki's apartment, it's further from the wall in the initial shot than when we see it actually smash in the close up.

Add time

Jon Sandys

Plot hole: Right after the Joker goes into the cathedral with Vicky, Batman follows him with no one else entering in between the two parties. How then did Joker's goons get to the top of the cathedral before Batman or the chopper? They couldn't have planned it since Joker had to tell them where to pick him up, and they didn't know he would chase after Vicky to that particular location.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At the cathedral scene, when Batman & Vicky are hanging at the ridge, and the Joker is about to be picked up by the helicopter, the color of Joker's jacket changes from purple (front shot) to red/orange (shot from above) and back again. The orange one may be his blouse, as it has the same colour visible under his jacket in the front shot. Then, the same jacket and hat are seen hung over the gargoyle just a few seconds later.

Add time

Continuity mistake: When Joker sees himself for the first time he hits the light and the bulb smashes against the wall. In the wide shot the light is still swinging and you can see that the bulb is intact.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Joker has broken in on the mayor's televised speech to the citizens of Gotham to challenge Batman to a "big duke-a-roo", Bruce freezes the live broadcast on a close-up of the Joker. He then flashes back to his parents murder. After the flashback, he looks again at the freeze frame picture of the Joker, but it is a different picture. When he freezes it, Joker's eyes are closed. When he comes back to the picture, his eyes are open.

Add time

Continuity mistake: In the scene where the Batmobile automatically drives to Batman's and Vicky's location, a couple of patrol cars start following the Batmobile. When the Batmobile reaches Batman, they have mysteriously disappeared.

xx:xx:xx

Audio problem: Unlike the second movie, the jet engine sound was not dubbed over the piston engine sound. The fact is, the jet engine in the Batmobile is a fake.

Sol Parker

Continuity mistake: When Batman and Vicky are running from Joker's museum plot, and are running from Joker's henchmen, he shoots a cable up to a walkway. As the camera shows him firing, he fires the rope at a 45 degree angle, yet when he and Vicky are going up on the rope, the walkway is directly above them and the rope is perpendicular to the ground.

Add time

Continuity mistake: At one point during the car chase through downtown Gotham City, the Batmobile maneuvers a sharp turn with the aid of a cable that launches from the driver's side and hooks onto a steel beam structure nearby. But as the Batmobile starts cornering, notice how the cable appears fastened in a different manner. Between shots, it has tied itself completely around the beam instead.

Continuity mistake: Towards the end of the gunfire exchange scene at Axis Chemicals - from the point at which Joker was pondering an escape on the catwalk until Batman turns around to see the shadow of a police officer closing in on him - notice how the exit bears an altogether different appearance between views.

Visible crew/equipment: In the museum rescue scene, as Batman lifts Vicki up to ride the Gauntlet/zipline to safety, an extra supporting hand can be seen around her waist as they cruise out of the frame.

Continuity mistake: After asking Joker if he's ever danced with the devil in the pale moonlight, Batman throws a right hand punch. However in the following shot Joker is seen getting hit with the left fist instead.

Audio problem: When Vicki is kissing the Joker's arm near the end, the sound of her kissing is a fraction of a second off, enough to be noticeable.

Continuity mistake: As Vicki waits at the museum cafeteria, you can see "Fluegelheim Museum" is printed on the menu on her table. But when she escapes with Batman, the sign at the front entrance of the building says "Flugelheim Museum".

Continuity mistake: When Batman collects the balloons' cables in his flying vehicle's anterior contraption, he gets 6 or 7 cables caught, but when he closes the scissor-like mechanism, there are only 5 visible cables. Also, when he collects them, they gather at the back of the mechanism, but when he closes it, they are neatly caught in small notches.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After electrocuting the guy at the end of the table in the crime-bosses scene, Joker (Jack Nicholson) clearly tries to put the scarf into his chest pocket but fails and lowers his hand while still holding it. But in the next shot the scarf is perfectly in place.

Add time

Continuity mistake: Whenever shots show the view looking down on the ground when Batman and Vicky are hanging from the cathedral, it only shows two spotlights shining upwards from the ground. In other shots just showing the upper part of the cathedral, there are three or four beams visible. Also, the movement of the beams from the ground and the ones actually on the actors don't correlate between shots.

Add time

Revealing mistake: When the Batjet crashes, if you pay close attention to the scale of the jet, cars and buildings in relation to the scale of the fire and explosions, it is very clear that this scene was created with models.

Continuity mistake: When Batman is first seen at the beginning of the scene at Axis Chemicals, he pulls a thug over a rail and hangs him from it. But when we see Batman standing over the rail, the thug is hanging from a pulley on the ceiling.

Audio problem: Knox is thrown from the hood of Vicki's car into a pile of garbage. He cries "No, no, no." He is obviously dubbed, as his cries continue briefly after he has already landed in the garbage.

Add time

Continuity mistake: After rescuing Vicki from the museum, Batman leads Joker's henchmen on a downtown chase with the Batmobile. One car on his tail causes a major pileup at the intersection near Monarch Theatre. A short time later when the unmanned Batmobile is making its way down the street, it passes right through that very same intersection. This time, however, there are no indications that a pileup ever took place just moments before. All mangled vehicles and debris have disappeared.

Continuity mistake: The background behind Bruce's TV set changes all by itself in the scene where he and Alfred are watching Joker's Smylex commercial.

Continuity mistake: In the scene where Vicki introduces herself to Knox at Gotham Globe, the newspaper she's reading changes between shots.

Revealing mistake: When Jack falls into the chemical vat it's obvious the vat is quite shallow as he doesn't actually sink into the chemicals but instead just kind of lands and then sits there as liquid splashes out around him. To top it off, the subsequent shot of him disappearing into the chemicals is reversed as several bubbles can be seen 'unpopping' and growing smaller.

Add time

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.

Add time

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.

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: 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: 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).

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.

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).

Continuity mistake: During the Batmobile car chase scene, Batman bangs a left from the side street near Monarch Theatre, leading Joker's henchmen and several patrol cars on a straight path for a few seconds. But right before the car pileup in front of Monarch Theatre, Batman is seen turning left onto the very same side street he came from to begin with.
