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.

More quotes from The Batman

Question: Has it ever been established that Gotham City is some sort of separate district similar to Washington D.C.? In the Dark Knight films it was pointed out that the license plates said "Gotham" on them rather than whatever State Gotham is located in. Here, we see Edward's drivers licenses and they also say "Gotham" on them, rather than a State name. Also, has there ever been a distinction made between "Gotham" and "Gotham City"? Because why wouldn't the licenses have the word "City" too?


Answer: In "The Dark Knight," we see Gotham State Police setting up barriers. In short, Gotham has never been shown to be anything akin to the District of Columbia, probably because Gotham is never meant to be the capital of the country.

Answer: It's also been referred to as its own separate state. The city, county and state of Gotham.

Answer: Gotham City is in Gotham County, New Jersey.

Not always. In some comics or shows it's in New York, Chicago, or Connecticut. So the question remains, has there ever been a version where it's a separate district or city state?
