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.


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.


Visible crew/equipment: When Joker is being lifted by the helicopter at the end the lines from the safety harnesses that attach him to the ladder are briefly visible. (01:57:25)

Visible crew/equipment: Set lights are reflected in a building's second story window just before the Joker and his goons start tossing handfuls of cash to the crowd. (01:36:30)

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. (00:59:55)

Trivia: Here's a nice touch. Look at the picture of "Batman" the artist shows Knox (the one of the bat in a suit.) In the lower right corner of the paper is the autograph of Batman creator Bob Kane. Additionally, the artist is named "Bob the Cartoonist" in the credits.

More trivia for Batman

Question: Given how narrow that ledge is, just how could the Joker grab hold of it and silently pull himself onto it prior to yanking Batman and Vicki Vale over the side?


Answer: Most likely, in real life, this would be impossible. Movies take liberties with facts and realities in order to tell the story.
