Trivia: A point in the score from Tom Cruise's Jack Reacher, by Joe Kraemer, inspired The Batman's signature motif by Michael Giacchino. After the phone call between Jack and Helen when he warns her potentially not to trust her father, he's driving across a bridge and the music is almost identical to the "" theme from this movie.

Trivia: Robert Pattison's casting as Batman was met with some backlash online. Some fans even created online petitions on websites like to try to get him fired. Former Batman actor Christian Bale supported Pattison, and likened the situation to the casting of Heath Ledger as the Joker in "The Dark Knight," as Ledger's casting was met with initial disdain. And, just like Ledger, Pattinson's performance was similarly met with typically stellar reviews when the film was finally released.


Trivia: Nirvana's "Something in the Way" from their 1991 landmark album "Nevermind" saw a surge in digital streams when it was featured in the trailer for this film, and then again upon the film's release, which features the song twice.

Trivia: In essentially every other live-action Batman movie, the black eye-makeup around Batman's eyes has a tendency to just "disappear" whenever he takes his mask off. This is the first movie in which it actually remains on his face and he must clean it off.


Trivia: Is the longest Batman movie ever released in theaters, and the second-longest theatrical superhero film of all time behind "Avengers: Endgame." (Which was only about six minutes longer that this movie).


Trivia: Colin Farrell reportedly went out and grabbed a coffee during a break in filming while he was in his prosthetic Penguin makeup. The prosthetic makeup was so convincing in-person that literally nobody realised it was him.


Other mistake: When Batman is video calling the Riddler and passes the phone over to the D/A, you can see Batman's face still looking at the phone in the reflection of the Riddler's glasses.

Question: Is this film supposed to be set in the same universe as the DC Extended Universe (in other words is this supposed to be a prequel, with Robert Pattinson's Batman being a younger version of Ben Affleck's) or is this set in a completely different continuity?
