The Dark Knight

Corrected entry: There's supposedly several police officers observing Joker from outside the interrogation room through a two-way mirror, but none of them notice Joker taking Stephens (his guard) hostage until he escapes the room.


Correction: There are no other cops present, they have all gone to rescue Rachel and Dent. Only Stephens is there.


Corrected entry: When the Joker greets Chenchen at the warehouse, Lau is seen alive and moving on top of the huge pile of money. When Joker sets the money on fire, Lau isn't heard screaming in pain even though it's obvious he is being burned alive.

Correction: Lau is not moving on top of the pile. He is tied up and there is a gag in his mouth. He couldn't scream even if he wanted to.


Corrected entry: Just after Harvey Dent starts his press conference, there's a shot of the audience shown while Harvey is speaking. On the left side of the screen, an audience member appears to be shouting, yet no sound is heard from him - you only hear Harvey speaking.


Correction: The man simply mouthing to himself. There is nothing to indicate "shouting".

Corrected entry: When Batman is crashing through the glass in Hong Kong to kidnap Lau, he's been flying around the skyline using his cape, but when he swings into the building we can see a wire attached to Batman that enables him to swing in.


Correction: At no point is a wire visible connected to Batman. There is a structure behind the building that due to its placement makes it look like a wire is attached.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Joker is doing the "magic trick" with the pencil, he first stabs the pencil through the table, and we can see that he stabbed it because it is leaning to the side and the metal band is at the top. After he slams the guy's head down onto the pencil, there is no hole in the table.

Correction: If you look closely, it appears as though he uses some kind of blu-tak like substance to hold the pencil steady.

Corrected entry: During the bank robbery, the camera operator's shadow is visible on the vault door as he/she passes it.


Jack Vaughan

Correction: This is too vague. There is more than one instance where the vault door is seen during the heist.

A Demon Premium member

Corrected entry: During the opening heist, when one of the robbers is suddenly hit by the bus that smashes through the front of the bank, watch closely. The bus comes nowhere close to actually hitting the man.


Correction: The bus doesn't, no. However all the debris from the wall does, and sends him flying.

A Demon Premium member

Corrected entry: A minor quibble, but it would be near suicide to ride a motorcycle wearing a six-foot cape. The drive assembly and or rear wheel/axle would eventually grab it and snap your neck.

Correction: Not true. In the special features of The Dark Knight, Christopher Nolan shows the audience the film-making process with behind-the-scenes footage, including the logistics of the bat-pod. He states that the original plan was to have Batman's cape shoot back into his suit in a backpack-like fashion, but he found when they were filming, the cape immediately caught the flow of the wind and never got caught up in the back tire, which he was very pleased to find out.

Corrected entry: When Reese unfolds the blueprints of the 'Tumbler' and puts them on Fox's desk, the drawing of the right-hand side of the vehicle is incorrectly labelled 'Left Elevation'.

Correction: Right and Left Elevations are determined as if you were looking at it from the Front Elevation. In this case, looking at a car from the front, the passenger side would be the Left. This is how the Tumbler is, correctly so, labelled.


Corrected entry: When the Joker, Grumpy and Chuckles get out of their station wagon and rush into the bank, you can see that they are parked on the south side of Van Buren Street and their car is facing east, just west of the drawbridge over the river (as indicated by 301 South Wacker Drive being visible in the background). They then enter through doors at the east end of the lobby. When the Joker is starting up the bus and pulling out of the bank's west lobby doors, the entrance suddenly changes to being on the north side at the west end, as he only makes a 90 degree right turn to join in with the other buses, which are driving east on Van Buren Street. He should actually have to make a full 180 degree clockwise turn through the intersection of Canal Street and Van Buren.

00:02:05 - 00:07:00


Correction: If this scene were set in Chicago, you'd have a valid mistake. But it's set in Gotham City, so all this talk of directions is moot since it's impossible to say which directions this fictional bank's multiple entrances face.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: When the batman goes into attack mode in his tumbler on the Lower Fifth chase, he shifts in the right side of the cockpit. But when he ejects the batpod he appears to have comes out from the left side of the cockpit.

Correction: When Batman goes into attack mode, he shifts to the CENTER of the cockpit. When he activates the ejection for the Batpod, he shifts back towards the driver's side. This happens off camera, but you hear the whine of the hydraulic motors that move the seat positioning.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: Bruce says to Fox that he is playing this one close to the chest. When the joker is caught after the underground chase Dent says to Gordon when he opens the door to the truck 'You do like to play things close to the chest.' Its like the lines got mixed up with the wrong characters in the script.


Correction: Two characters using a very common saying is not a mistake.


Corrected entry: Batman scans a shattered bullet in a wall and finds a fingerprint on it. Firing the bullet would have certainly destroyed the fingerprint, as the bullet would be in contact with the barrel. Part of the fingerprint is seen on an area which would be in direct contact with the barrel. Airflow over the bullet would also more than likely destroy a fingerprint.

Correction: Much of Batman's technology is more advanced than "the real world." So we have to accept that his fingerprint scanner does work. Also, you can't remove fingerprints by simply blowing air on it. Airflow cannot remove fingerprints.


Corrected entry: When pointing the gun at himself, the Joker's finger is on the hammer in one shot, and in the next, his finger is pointing straight up.

Correction: The Joker is shown raising his finger to point at Two-face. It's not done between shots but on camera.

Corrected entry: During the opening bank robbery, after the robbers fire a few rounds into the air to get the attention of the customers and tellers, one robber, Chuckles, grabs one of the guards, drags him over to the desk, and pistol whips him over the back. Seconds later, right before Chuckles is killed by the shotgun-wielding bank manager, the same pistol-whipping moment is repeated as a close-up.


Correction: No it isn't. This isn't even a repeated scene because you would've seen a big camera in front of the guard the first time. The thug pistol whipped the guard again because he wasn't cooperating. Also, directly after whipping the guard the second time the thug made a speech about about anyone not cooperating will get punished.


Corrected entry: At the start of the scene were Wuertz is killed, you can see that the beer taps are right in front of him. Then Dent arrives and the beer taps are gone.


Correction: Not exactly true. Look carefully, the beer taps are to Wuertz right. When Harvey comes in he stands right in front of him. The taps are to Harvey's left and remain out of the camera's view for the rest of the scene.


Corrected entry: When the SWAT team surround Batman there are six SWAT members then Batman forces them over the edge off the building but only five go over the edge.


Correction: Obviously the sixth one wasn't tied up. If there had been five swat members and six fall out then this would be a mistake.


Corrected entry: Toward the end of the movie, Harvey Dent is threatening to harm Commissioner Gordon's family. Gordon's wife is cowering on the floor holding her son and covering his head. Dent says "we have a winner" and chooses the boy, pulling him up and away from his mother. The next shot shows Gordon's wife crying out in protest, and she's still holding her son. The next shot shows Harvey lifting the boy off the ground.


Correction: Gordon's wife is holding both their son and their daughter. She is holding the daughter after Harvey pulls the son away.

Corrected entry: During the interrogation scene, right after Gordon leaves, the lights turn on. But, a split second before batman slams the joker's face into the table, the joker squints his eyes. It's possible that Heath Ledger could've done it because he knows that his head is going to be slammed down so he makes a face to prepare for it.

Correction: Well, you try sitting in a really dark room and then have somebody switch on the lights. You'd squint - everybody squints. It's a natural reflex under those circumstances.

Corrected entry: When the chase begins on the lower fifth the van carrying Harvey Dent is struck from behind by the garbage truck. When it hits they cut to a shot inside the van showing Dent being pushed back against the wall behind him in reaction to the crash. But Dent is sitting in a sideways-facing seat, facing the driver's side of the van. When the Van was struck from behind Dent's body should have been pushed to his left.

BocaDavie Premium member

Correction: Dent's lurch is the result of a combination of him bracing himself against the wall after the impact, and the driver swerving after being hit.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: In the prologue, when the Joker is acting as one of the thugs, he has combed back, tidy, brown hair. But then as soon as the bus driver crashes through the building and opens the door, the Joker's hair turns green, but still tidy and combed. And then when he goes up to the bank manager and takes off his mask, his hair then changes again, to messy and uncombed.


Correction: The Jokers hair is messy because he removed his mask, he slides it up above his hair which messes it up.

Corrected entry: When the Joker shoots the window out while holding Rachel, he points the gun too far to his left to hit the window, yet it shatters.

Correction: I've reviewed this scene and from the angle he was holding the gun the bullet could have contacted the outer edge of the window, causing the whole window to shatter.

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: In the interogation room scene, Commissioner Gordon leaves through the door facing the Joker. When Batman appears behind the Joker, there is a door behind Batman. Two doors yet Batman only barricades one door to keep the police out, and Gordon only runs towards one of the doors, not even trying the other one.

Correction: First, Gordon is only one person so he is only able to run to one of the doors. We are never shown where the other door goes. If it was an exit that only led to the holding cells (a logical choice, since that is where you take prisoners after interrogation) the people in the viewing area would not be able to access it. Also, it could just be a door to a bathroom or storage room.

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: When the hospital is exploding, the shot from a helicopter shows a car exploding at the very bottom of the screen, when it is too early and therefore nothing else could have caused it.



Correction: The Joker has placed bombs throughout the building; putting a bomb in one or more of the vehicles outside to increase the mayhem would be in keeping with his character.

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: This is the first Batman film in which Bruce Wayne does not appear in a tuxedo.

Jedd Jong

Correction: He does; he is wearing one during the restaurant scene.

Corrected entry: When Bruce Wayne and Lucius Fox are looking at new Batman equipment, after Bruce picks up one of the arm plates, he presses a button which makes the blades come out, and as he does this, he is holding it towards himself, so the blades are facing him, but in the next shot, he is holding it to the side of his body, and so when he pushes another button, the blades shoot out and hit the wall, when they should have hit him in the chest.


Correction: Not so. Just before the shot changes, we see the arm plate turn away from him.


Corrected entry: Upon seeing a burning fire truck blocking the road, the police convoy taking Dent diverts to the sub-street, effectively trapping them and rendering the helicopter useless. The convoy could have just used the on-coming lanes above ground since they were closed to traffic. A layman can make such an error and it would be plausible. An entire team of SWAT professionals, using an airborne spotter, would not make such a blunder. The helicopter crew would instruct them to take the oncoming lanes so that they remain in the helicopter's view.

Correction: It was not an entire team of SWAT professionals making the blunder; just the one person on the microphone telling everyone to divert below. He only had the two choices and had only seconds to make the call; he just made the wrong decision. Since he was in the police car leading the convoy, the rest of the convoy had no choice but to follow him.

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: When the SWAT truck is pushed into the river, you can see the shadow of the helicopter that's filming the shot on the wall just above where the truck fell into the river.

Jack Vaughan

Correction: Or is it the helicopter that is supposed to be guarding the convoy? No way to tell, but since they did have air support it stands to reason that the shadow could be from that helicopter.

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: When The Joker gets on the bus after blowing up the hospital about halfway along inside the bus is a large camera set-up.



Correction: Those are probably camera crew from Gotham Tonight that the Joker had kidnapped. After all, the Joker would need a camera crew if he is going to film his hostage video that we see later.

Brad Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Joker tries to kill Batman after his racing is off, and someone interrupts him, he says, "Could you please, just give me a minute?" Then James Gordon appears and you can see that his glasses are broken. The next shot, his glasses are not broken anymore.


Correction: He's wearing completely different glasses in the second shot. He goes from wearing glasses that were more compatible with the SWAT disguise he was wearing (which aren't broken, by the way) back to wearing his regular glasses.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: During Batman and the Joker's final struggle, the Joker manages to get Batman tangled up in a net and goes to take a swing at him. During that time, he says, "All the old familiar places", yet his mouth isn't moving.

Correction: The Joker is not on camera for the entire line. He could've said it while the camera wasn't focused on him.

Brad Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene just after the Batmobile basically blows up, and the little motorcycle thing is ejected, the building that Batman rides through is Millenium Station, a train station in Chicago.

Correction: Lots of Chicago landmarks are visible in this film and several others - this is nowhere near special enough to qualify as trivia.


Corrected entry: In the scene where the Joker interrupts the mob's meeting with Lau, Gamble asks the Joker why he shouldn't have his "boy" pull the Joker's head off. During the shot where Gamble makes the threat, the man next to him begins to stand up. The camera switches to the Joker as he responds, "How about a magic trick?" When the camera switches back to Gamble, the man is sitting again as if he had never moved.


Correction: This is no mistake. He probably sat himself down again when the camera was on the Joker.

Corrected entry: Just after the Joker blows up Gotham General Hospital he climbs into the back of a school bus. If you look at the fourth window from the left, on the bus, you can see a camera used to film a close up of the Joker. The footage from this camera can be seen in the Special Features on Disc 2.


Correction: This could also be Mike Engel's cameraman. Just before the hospital blows up, the GCN newsmen climb aboard the very same bus (which is how the Joker is holding them hostage later).

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: In the scene when Bruce laser scans the bullet fragments he found in the wall, he said there was a thumb-print on the bullet from when the round was thumbed into the clip. However, loading a magazine your thumb would touch the casing, not the bullet itself - loading one by putting pressure on the actual bullet would be ridiculously awkward.

Correction: When inserting rounds, it is common to place the rear of the casing on top of the round at the top of the clip, push down with one thumb on that part, and use your other thumb to push the round backwards, seating it in the clip. When doing this, the thumb of the hand applying the backwards pressure to the round does indeed press firmly against the bullet.

Corrected entry: The Joker kills one of Gambol's henchmen with a pencil in the kitchen scene. Later, when the Joker goes to kill Gambol, the henchmen is alive, with a gun to his head, on the right.

Correction: Comparing the two individuals in question, it's clear that they're not the same man. See here.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: After the semi flips in the street and the Joker gets out and starts shooting at cars, no bullet holes are produced on any of the cars he hits.

Correction: Bullet holes in movies are often drastically overdone. Since there are no real close-ups of the cars, the bullets probably just dented the cars and ricocheted, especially given that he's firing at a very shallow angle.

Corrected entry: As Two-Face is talking to Salvatore Maroni in the car, you can see they are driving past buildings and cars. After Two-Face shoots the driver, it is shown that the car flips over near a railroad.

Correction: There are many cities that have railroad tracks going right through the middle of them, past buildings.

Corrected entry: In the bank robbery scene, one of the "clowns" drills a hole into the door of the safe. Later, when he spins the lever to open the safe door (just before he is shot) the area in which he drilled is clearly visible and there is no sign of any damage.

Correction: There are two holes visible to the right of the dials - one where the drill was stabilised and one where the hole was drilled.

Corrected entry: When being harassed by the Jokers henchmen, why would any sane person choose to drive his vehicle underground, making the helicopters covering the vehicle useless? The answer was that the roadblock forced the convoy underground. However, given the presence of helicopters, the helicopters would see the roadblock many blocks in advance, warn the convoy on the ground of its presence and route the convoy around the roadblock. Police helicopters already do this for getting around traffic and vectoring cars to escaping criminals. The helicopter would also never fly between buildings (look at flying regulations and see if this can ever happen without the pilot losing his/her job), and so would not be susceptible to the method employed to bring it down.

Correction: The roadblock was set up too quickly for the helicopter pilots to see or react to soon enough. Besides, they also followed the truck underground to make sure the Joker and his henchmen wouldn't stop somewhere below and escape. Helicopter pilots can and do fly between buildings without losing their licenses. An immediate example is pilots' landing on a hospital rooftop, legally. Emergency vehicles, of which helicopters used for police or ambulance services, have an exemption to the rule about not flying between buildings. I have been routed through major cities flying a fixed wing aircraft by ATC, and was nowhere close to the minimum altitude normally required to fly over a city. My cousin has flown helicopters, and landed on major highways and in parks to rescue medical aid victms.

Corrected entry: It shown that the only entrance to the makeshift 'BatCave' is on a platform which lowers down from a cargo crate. The night after Batman apprehends Scarecrow, Alfred comes down and unlocks a padlock to enter the crate, goes down and finds Bruce stitching himself up, making it clear Bruce has been there all night. Therefore it's impossible that the crate is padlocked, as you'd need to be outside to do it and there's no other way to get into the underground lair.

Correction: The only entrance shown to the underground lair is via the cargo container, but that doesn't mean that there isn't another access point. When Alfred unlocks it, it is a very standard model of cargo container - the maximum width for such containers is eight feet. Given that the Tumbler is nine feet four inches wide, it is clear that another entrance must exist.

Corrected entry: When the Joker pulls the bus out of the bank, two other school buses follow behind him. You can hear kids talking loudly; however, there are no kids to be seen on either bus.

Correction: The reason why you hear children talking is because they are in the other school buses. The Joker timed it so that his buses would blend in with buses from schools. There are easily 12 buses in the shot, some from the robbery and some from schools - that way the cops can't tell them apart.

Corrected entry: When the Joker is in Harvey Dent's room when he is being hospitalized, one of the security guards goes into the room and asks if "she" can leave, when the Joker turns around to shoot at him, for a brief moment you can see that Harvey Dent's full face is visible, without his burns and scars.

Correction: If you look closely, you will see that only the right side of Harvey's face is completely visible. His burns are on the left side of his face.

Corrected entry: In the opening bank robbery scene when the Joker places the smoke grenade in the bank owner's mouth and drives away pulling the pin out of the grenade, when the camera cuts back to man with the smoke grenade in his mouth the pin is still in the camera shot even though it should still be moving with the bus.

Correction: The scene is correct. The pin goes away with the bus, the thing that stays on the floor is the handle for the granade.

Corrected entry: The character who has the smoke grenade in his mouth when the Joker gets on the bus at the beginning should have just spit it out and crawled off. Nobody in their right mind would have kept biting down on it waiting to have the pin pulled.

Correction: An item the size of a grenade exceeds the jaw's ability to open and remove an item (without assistance of a hand) and thus he was unable to simply spit it out. It is a matter of physical ability and not desire to do so.


Corrected entry: When the Joker crashes the party and talks to Rachel, he holds her face with his right hand. During the scene his hand switches constantly between two different positions.

Correction: The Joker is holding her face with both hands during his monologue. He grabs her face with his right hand but then uses his left hand, too.

Corrected entry: In the end of the chase for the armored car, when it leaves the tunnel, the left side of the car appears clean, without any of the bullet signs from the Joker's shots. They appear from inside when Dent is talking with a officer.

Correction: All through the chase sequence, exterior shots of the armoured car shows little sign of damage - the dark paint combined with the poor lighting means that the dents simply don't show up well. The light colour of the interior, combined with the better lighting inside the vehicle, shows up the damage better.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: During the opening bank robbery, the Joker is holding the gun and shooting with his left hand until he shoots the final robber. He shoots the last robber right handed and is right handed for the rest of the scene.

Correction: Where's the mistake? Many people are equally skilled with their left and right hands.

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Corrected entry: During the SWAT chase on the underground street, when the Joker switches weapons and pulls out an RPG, the SWAT passenger says, "What is that, a bazooka?" It's actually a Soviet-designed RPG-7 - while most lay people might call any cylinder-shaped weapon a bazooka, a trained SWAT officer could easily tell the difference, and would have no reason to use the wrong name.

Correction: He doesn't really care what it is, only that it's big and aimed at him. It's a high-stress fast-paced situation, no matter what training he's had. Given those facts, the only remaining important factor is which rolls off the tongue easier, making his point clear to his associates quicker: "What is that? A Bazooka?!" or "What is that? A Soviet-Designed RPG-7?!"

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: In the second scene of the movie, when Batman jumps onto Scarecrow's van as he is trying to get away, Batman leaps from the edge and the front of his body is facing a side of the van, but in the next shot when he crashes onto the van, he is facing towards the front of the van.

Correction: It is entirely possible to change your orientation when falling. Even more so if you happen to be wearing a cape. We only briefly see his initial fall, at which point it cuts to the van coming around the bend, Batman then lands facing front aligned with the vehicle. So it's completely reasonable that he simply just did a slight half spin during his free fall.

Corrected entry: When Harvey Dent is in the hospital, he can be seen to be wearing nothing but a hospital gown. However, after he leaves the hospital, he is once again wearing his burned suit. Even assuming that it had not been discarded and that he had time to locate it before the hospital collapsed, there is no way it could possibly have still been scabbed onto his burned flesh, as it was, since he had obviously had enough time in the hospital for his burns to stop oozing, or the hospital gown would have been soaked in ichor.

Correction: Harvey Dent would have been wearing his suit when he was taken to the hospital and since the staff did not discard it, they most likely would have put it in the closet in his room. As we can see in the film, it takes the Joker several minutes to blow up the hospital after he leaves Dent's room, giving him more than enough time to locate his suit. Additionally, there is nothing to indicate that the suit is "scabbed" onto his flesh because only his face and the top part of his neck were burned, both of which do not touch his suit while he is wearing it.

Corrected entry: The ink in money doesn't burn red.

Correction: No, it doesn't; but the gasoline Joker poured all over the money does.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: The right side of Dent's face burns - but in hospital, it's the left side that's burned off.

Correction: It was always the left side of his face which is burned.


Corrected entry: When the Joker is talking to Dent in the hospital - It flips quickly back and forth between shots where the gauze is on Dent's skin and then it suddenly disappears.

Correction: You are mistaken. There's never any gauze visible on his face, what little of it you can see.

Corrected entry: During the bank robbery, when the bus backs into the building, the bus has an Illinois license plate.

Correction: It has a Gotham license plate, which were made for the film to very closely resemble Illinois license plates so that if any -real- Illinois plates are visible in the background, they'd match the film's Gotham plates.

Corrected entry: Joker escapes from the bank robbery by crashing a school bus into the bank, and then drives out and simply joins what appears to be a convoy of such buses driving down the street. Even assuming Joker organized the bus convoy for his benefit, people are still seen walking down the street, unconcerned by anything. There aren't even any curious onlookers. Did they all just miss a bus crashing backwards into a bank, then pulling out? Not to mention all the gunfire inside the bank, etc, some of which took place after the bus crash, which certainly did away with any soundproofing the bank had.

Correction: There is a time lapse from when the bus crashed into the bank and the initial gunfire, which would likely make the first witnesses run or hide, and the bus leaving minutes later. At this time new witnesses would be on scene, and not have witnessed the robbery or initial crash. In big cities, people tend to mind their own business. I was in a theater where a gang member was shot, people kept buying their movie tickets and popcorn as if nothing happened. Only those immediately next to the shooter had a reaction. Also, Gotham City is said to have become riddled with crime, and as such, a bank robbery may be a common occurrence.

Corrected entry: When Bruce is on his red and silver sport bike, he passes a silver Volkswagen that makes the distinctive sound of an air cooled, rear engine Beetle exhaust. The problem is that it is a New Beetle, which is front engine, liquid cooled, and has no distinguishable exhaust note like the air cooled Beetles.


Correction: This sound could actually be the engine of Bruce's sport bike, and not that of the Beetle that he passes. You can hear a faded version (since it is driving away from the camera) of the same high pitched twittering sound occur twice as the bike pulls away from the storage area between 01:00:02 and 01:00:04 in the movie.

Corrected entry: Towards the end of the Batmobile chase when the vehicle is hit by the Joker's RPG, it flips through the air. During this time the underside of the Batmobile is visible and it is completely smooth and looks bolted on, revealing that this car is merely a stunt model.

Correction: Or Fox/Batman has decided to add an extra armor plate to the bottom of the Batmobile, covering all exposed mechanical parts and reduce their vulnerability. It IS designed as a tank, after all.


Corrected entry: In the Harvey Dent party scene, where The Joker crashes the party, we see a piece of hair across his forehead towards the beginning, but around when he sees Rachel, it disappears.

Correction: We actually see him wet his fingers and move the lock of hair when he sees Rachel and says, "Well hello beautiful".

wizard_of_gore Premium member

Corrected entry: When the Joker holds the knife to Rachel he (Keith) cuts his face, upper lip. In the next scene it's cleaned up.

Correction: If he is holding the knife to Rachel, how does he cut his face? No such thing happens. And his name is Heath, not Keith.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Joker blows up the hospital, he enters a bus just as the explosion starts. You can spot a camera in the bus capturing the Jokers reaction to the explosion. This shot wasn't used in the film but can be seen on the two disc DVD version.

Correction: The problem with this submission is really the phrase 'The shot wasn't used in the film'. Movie mistakes are about mistakes that actually appear in the movie - it's pretty specific like that.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Joker is robbing the mob bank (in the first 3 minutes of the film), a Clown Thug is seen knocking down the security guard in the background. A few shots later, the same security guard is knocked down in the same manner before the Clown Thug is shot.

Correction: The clown thug does knock the guard down, but is shown pulling him up and along before shoving him up against a table. It is only later in the scene, just before the bank manager shoots him, that the thug hits the guard with his gun.

Corrected entry: After the Joker tells the citizens of Gotham that he wants Mr. Reese dead in an hour or he will blow up a hospital, Bruce leaves to go to his Lamborghini. When Alfred says, "The Lamborghini then, sir?" the news is still on the TV in the background. The scene later cuts back to Alfred when he says, "Much more subtle." The TV is now off, but you never saw anyone shut it off in the one second between Alfred's lines, nor is Alfred holding a remote control.

Correction: This is not an accurate description of the sequence of the scene. The TV is off when Alfred asks if Bruce will need the Batpod and Alfred (and the TV) is off camera when he asks about the Lamborghini. We actually see the TV turn off while Bruce dictates instructions to Alfred, as he moves to the elevator. While we don't see Bruce or Alfred activate a remote at the moment it turns off, Bruce may have used the remote as he was getting up from the couch (an action he was finishing when we cut to this scene). And Bruce's TV system may simply have a delay (like my own TV at home).

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: In the first scene when the thieves are sliding on a wire between buildings(a shot from above), a black spherical camera is seen sliding before them on the same wire.

Correction: I believe this has already been submitted and corrected. It's not a camera, it's the thieves' equipment bag, which we see them hooking onto the line just before they jump.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: Just before the Batman/Joker interrogation, when Gordon is in the room, there's a lamp on the table. When Gordon turns the light on, showing Batman standing behind the Joker, it's gone for the rest of the scene.

Correction: The lamp can be seen several times in the scene: When Batman pounds Joker's hand; just before Joker says "You complete me"; and when Batman grabs him across the table. Then the lamp is seen on the floor after Batman has slammed him onto the table. It was likely knocked down when Batman sweeps Joker across the table against the wall.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: When they are trying to get Reese to safety, going into the alley and out of the building, you can see a cameraman running down the stairs after the police and Gordon.

Correction: Of course you can - you can see him throughout the sequence. Reese, Gordon and his men are being accompanied by reporter Mike Engel and his cameraman - at one point, you even hear Engel specifically telling his cameraman to keep rolling.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: After The Joker blows up the hospital and sits down on his bus, a crew member in the back can be seen cuing the bus driver.

Correction: That's just one of the Joker's henchmen who took over the bus before he left the hospital and are waiting to pick him up. Joker gets on board, the man at the back who's been holding open the door closes it and gives the go signal to the man in the driver's seat.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: After the tunnel ambush when they get air support again they show the view from the helicopter of a SWAT member with an M16 and an EOTech sight attached. If you look closely the red dot scope is mounted backwards on the weapon.

Correction: It's definitely not an EOTech or EOTech clone sight. The darkness makes it hard to tell exactly what it is, but is very likely a Trijicon reflex sight, mounted on a carry handle mount, like this one: that would mean it's mounted correctly.

Corrected entry: In the opening when the Joker gets picked up at the corner, he is holding his mask in his hand. The van pulls up beside him in a way that the other robbers would be able to see his face. Supposedly his face is painted prior to arriving to the bank: wouldn't the other robbers already know he is scarred and wears face paint, revealing that he is the Joker from the get-go? I also think that some people would be freaked out if the Joker was standing in the corner in broad daylight wearing face paint with scars on his face.

Correction: The van pulls up past him and he puts the mask on almost immediately. He's also standing with his head down, making it even harder to see his face. They might catch a glimpse of the makeup, maybe, but it won't be detailed. It's also shown in the sequence that some of the thieves don't actually know that the Joker wears makeup anyway, so there's no guarantee that, even if they did see him well, that they'd make the connection. As for the public, yeah, some of them might find it a bit odd, but no odder than dozens of other street performers that you could find on the streets of any major city.

Corrected entry: During the underground chase scene, we see Batman inside the Batmobile accelerating. He pushes the throttle stick using his left hand, thus the Batmobile is right-hand driven. After he hits the garbage truck and spins around he is seen using his right hand to push the throttle and the Batmobile has become left-hand driven.

Correction: It looks more like the Batmobile is driven with a lever on each side, like a tank, or bulldozer, thus you use both hands to operate the throttle.

Corrected entry: In the bank robbery scene, from when the Joker says, "No, no I'm supposed to kill the bus driver," and up until the robber holding a gun to the Joker gets hit by the bus, you can see in the close-up shots of the Joker's face that his eyes have no black paint around them, just normal skin. You have to look closely but it is there.

Correction: The Joker does have black make-up around his eyes under the mask. It stops just short of going completely to the edges of his eyes. So he is to appear to his henchmen as not wearing make-up under his mask. When he takes the mask off, pause the DVD. You can see a thin pink rim of skin where the make-up stops just short of his eyes.

Corrected entry: After Dent shoots Maroni's driver, you can see a geyser under the car that helps it flip.

Correction: If you look closely enough you can see that the tire is causing the smoke.

Corrected entry: In the hospital scene, while the Joker is holding the gun up right after he shot the police officer, look very closely under his arm. You can see Harvey's face. The left half isn't burnt at all, even though he's in the hospital because half his face was burnt off.

Correction: Actually if you look closely you can see its burnt around his left eye, it just looks normal because he moves so quickly.

Corrected entry: When Batman cuts out the chunk of wall to retrieve the bullet, it is a square shape with the bullet hole slightly off-center. Then, when he is shooting various sample bricks in his lab, the one he chooses is rectangular with the bullet hole dead-center. When he actually performs the scan to find the fingerprint, he is using the rectangular sample brick, not the square one he cut out of the wall. This means he is somehow able to yield a criminal's fingerprint off a bullet that he shot in his own lab.

Correction: Incorrect. He's scanning the brick that he shot to determine exactly how the test bullet inside broke up on impact, in order to determine the sort of pattern that the segments would end up in. He can then scan the wall section taken from the apartment, examine the dispersal pattern of the bullet fragments within and create a virtual construct of the original bullet, using the data from the test as a guideline.

Corrected entry: Heath Ledger wanted to have the Joker's clown makeup to have a "real" quality so he applied the clown makeup himself every day.

Correction: Film-making requires strict continuity, particularly with regard to makeup and other items that can easily change during a scene. With scenes shot over multiple days, there is no way an actor would simply be allowed to slap the makeup on themselves. They have makeup people skilled in maintaining continuity for that sort of thing.

Corrected entry: When The Joker was arrested and taken to the holding cell, why did the police not remove his make-up? They had time to go through his pockets, take fingerprints and check the labels on his clothes, and didn't think to remove his make-up in an attempt to identify him?

Correction: We can not know and probably will never know their decision not to remove the makeup. Simply because they decided not to at that time does not constitute it a mistake. Interesting, but not a mistake.

Corrected entry: Harvey Dent continually talks about how he received a lucky coin from his father when he was young. However, late in the movie he shows the face of the coin and the date on it is 1999.

Correction: It actually says 1922 on it.

Corrected entry: About midway through the movie, just as Harvey Dent is being loaded into the armored police truck, as the door closes one can see the sticker on the right back side of the truck says Police Department; City of New York, not Gotham.

Correction: Upon multiple viewings of the movie, I can confirm that it does say Gotham, not New York.

Corrected entry: When Harvey is set on fire, he put his hand directly into the fire for about 3 seconds, but both his hand and sleeve are unaffected (no burns - even minor ones).

Correction: He was rolling around and moving his hand into/out of the licking flames. This can be harmless so long as the hand is kept moving enough to not allow any portion to become over-heated. This is an old barbeque & campfire stunt folks do all the time. I once waved my arm through tall flames for nearly a half-minute and had no skin or clothing damage at all.


Corrected entry: In the beginning of the bank heist scene, the Joker is standing on a street corner with a clown mask in his hand. As the van pulls up he puts the mask over his face. Later, he takes the mask off and is shown wearing makeup. This means that while standing on the street corner without the mask on, his makeup would have been visible to the public.

Correction: And if true, he'd have been a guy, standing on a corner with clown make-up on. An odd, quirky sight in a large, densely populated city like Gotham, but nothing that would necessarily alarm anyone as his intentions weren't known yet. His presence might be something like a man, wearing only his underwear, standing in the middle of Times Square, New York, playing a guitar- which today is a 'normal', well-known sight, but is still odd enough to make many people look twice. No mistake.


Corrected entry: When Lucius Fox arrives in Hong Kong, he's greeted by an assistant to Lau at the helipad. He's played by actor/singer Edison Chen. He's also the guy who tells Lucius to leave his phone in the lobby's reception. Edison Chen was involved in a sexy pictures scandal in Hong Kong early 2008, when photos of him having sex with Hong Kong singers and actresses (some of them since married) that were stored in his computer were leaked online. His few seconds onscreen are probably the last we'll see of him as his showbiz career is now kaput.

Correction: The actor's sex scandal really has nothing to do with The Dark Knight, and is therefore not valid trivia.

Corrected entry: When Gordon comes back, he taps the Joker and when the Joker looks up for a split second, you can see that he doesn't have a scar on his face. Upon turning back, the scar is there.

Correction: This shot is not done in close-up - there's simply not enough visual information to state that his scar is missing. Having watched for this specifically during my last viewing, the Joker looks no different from any other shot in the film.

Corrected entry: When The Joker arrives at Dent's fundraiser, Rachel and Harvey are away from the party in one of the other rooms. Bruce comes and drags Harvey away, saying, "They're coming for him". So why does Rachel end up amongst all the party guests for The Joker to threaten? Surely she would have stayed hidden and out of the way. And why didn't Bruce simply hide Rachel with Dent to ensure her safety, or at least hide her somewhere, like wherever he got the BatSuit from, for example? These are some baffling character decisions that don't make sense at all.

Correction: It's established from the previous film that Rachel is stubborn and indignant when it comes to justice and right (going up against the mob, for instance). Bruce may very well have put her in a safe place, but she refused to allow the Joker to intimidate her. A questionable choice, but hardly out of character for her.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: Two-Face's face should drool (also known as ptyalism or sialorrhea) saliva from his mouth openings; it just looks too waxy.

Correction: Swallowing the saliva, damage to salivary glands in the fire, wiping his mouth off camera; several explainations. As a former medic I've treated people with severe burns; Harvey's appearence in the movie is a good approximation of what someone looks like with their skin completely burned off.

Corrected entry: When the Joker attacks the police convoy with Harvey Dent, why is it that none of the policemen shoot back at him, or at least tries to defend himself with a gun? There were many policemen out there (some were killed, of course), policemen usually carry guns, and there was enough time between the Joker's attacks to take out a gun and shoot at him. I think I would give guns for people who were transferring one of Gotham's most wanted criminals, and who are expecting to be attacked by the most brutal criminal in town.

Correction: Carrying guns yes, trying to fire them and control the vehicle at the same time is something different. They are traveling at high speeds with a homicidal maniac firing rockets at them. The likelihood they would be able to roll down the window and take him out would not be too smart or effective.

Corrected entry: In one of the final scenes where Batman goes into the building where Joker is conducting his "social experiment" with the two ferries, Batman's "sonar eyes" appear and re-appear through many different cuts.

Correction: That's because they're being activated, deactivated, reactivated, etc. They don't stay visible because they don't stay on.

Corrected entry: During the convoy scene, The Joker's men are set up to ambush the police copters. how would they know where to set up? Even with inside info from dirty cops, they couldn't know where the driver would detour and resurface to street level.

Correction: The detour was forced by the burning fire truck, which funneled the convoy onto Lower 5th Street where the attack began. Being an underground roadway, exits would be limited, so if only one or two turns off are possible plus an exit at the end, Joker only needs to have his guys covering those three possibilities. Had the convoy not been diverted onto the lower roadway, it would've had far more options for escape, but the roadblock worked.


Corrected entry: Toward the end of the bank heist scene, when the pin is pulled from the grenade that is in the bank manager's mouth, you can see a tube that releases the smoke from the grenade, running from his mouth to the inside of his collar.

Correction: It's not a wire. It's a crease in his cheek from having to open his mouth so wide.

Corrected entry: In the shot where we first see Gordon again after he 'dies', a part of his glasses frame is missing (on the left), but in the next shot, when we see him with Dent his glasses are perfect.

Correction: They're two different pairs of glasses. He's first wearing tactical glasses to match his SWAT uniform. Later, he's switched to his usual frames.

Corrected entry: If Harvey's eyelid was in fact burned off in the fire, leaving his eye intact, it would eventually fail to function and even be damaged beyond repair due to a lack of hydration which occurs through the process of blinking.

Correction: Correct! It would eventually dry up. Interesting medical fact. Not a movie mistake, though. It is never revealed in the movie if he is able to see out of the damaged eye; it may already be blind from the injury.

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: One side of Harvey's face is severely burnt, also leaving his eye without an eyelid, if this was the case that the fire got so close to his eye to take the skin off then his actual eye should have been equally damaged.

Correction: The eyelid was burnt to a point that it could not be saved, but had protected the eye beneath. The hospital would have removed such a damaged eyelid.


Corrected entry: During the Batman/Joker interrogation scene, the amount of make up on Joker's face changes between shots. This is particularly noticeable on his chin and forehead, and is not consistent with reasonable rub off from the altercation.

Correction: Watching the scene carefully to spot this, I find no blatant differences from shot to shot.


Corrected entry: When Harvey Dent is on fire, it's understandable why only one side of his face burns. But it's unlikely that one side of his hair would be left unburned. Since hair is flammable, both sides would be missing.

Correction: Hair is not flammable to the point that lighting it in one spot causes it to travel quickly all over your head. If you hold a flame to hair, then remove the flame, the burning hair extinguishes itself very quickly.


Corrected entry: Batman uses a thick drill to cut out the bullet hole from the wall, yet when he removes the brick containing the bullet hole, it is in a perfect rectangular shape, like something flat was used to cut the wall.

Correction: Batman uses a saw-type tool to cut out the rectangle, not a drill.

Corrected entry: Batman cuts out the bullet hole from the wall to look for Joker's fingerprints, but Joker wears gloves.

Correction: Joker usually wears gloves, yes, but that doesn't mean that he wears them every hour of every day. While it makes sense that he'd wear them while out creating mischief, to avoid leaving his fingerprints, there's no particular reason for him to wear them when hiding out and preparing. Bruce is hoping that the Joker wasn't wearing them when he loaded the bullets into the magazine, something that turns out to be correct.

Corrected entry: The events of this film take place immediately after the events of 'Batman Begins'. In the previous film, Lucius Fox introduces and describes the 'Tumbler' to Bruce Wayne as a military prototype 'bridging vehicle', designed to jump across ravines and chasms to drag lines which would then be used to pull bridges across. The vehicle is then used in that film is ways that are consistent with the expected features of such a vehicle. However, in this film the Tumbler (now officially the 'Batmobile') suddenly acquires the ability to shed its outer skin, revealing the motorcycle-like vehicle from within. Not only does this serve no conceivable purpose for an intended 'bridging vehicle', but that ability would preclude the interior passenger space shown quite thoroughly in the previous film. Also, there has not been any time between the two films' timelines in which to make the modifications necessary for such a feature, even if they only recently decided to add it.

Correction: Incorrect. The Joker makes reference to it having been a year since the mob had it all their own way, Harvey Dent has risen to prominence and has had the time to start what's an ongoing relationship with Rachel (they're at the point of talking marriage), Bruce has set up a sophisticated underground lair, Gordon is now senior enough in the Gotham Police to be selected as the new Commissioner, despite only being made a lieutenant at the end of the previous film. Clearly some considerable time has passed since the first film, a year at an absolute minimum. Plenty of time for Fox to have tinkered with the Tumbler. Not that the feature couldn't already have been there anyway. Think about it - you're designing a military vehicle to leap across rivers into what could well be hostile territory. Designing a system that would allow the driver to escape swiftly in the event of terminal damage to the vehicle makes perfect sense. And given that we really don't know exactly how the 'eject' system works, your assertation that it would preclude the internal space seen in the first film is flawed at best.

Corrected entry: On the prisoner's ferry, supposedly just before midnight, the prisoner stands up to take the detonator from the guard. As he stands up, the clock shows it's roughly 11:30/11:35. Then his body covers the clock and he moves forward. When you see the clock again, it shows it's just before midnight.

Correction: The clock consistently shows it's roughly 11:55pm. There is no sudden change of the clock's time and there is no transition to a new angle, so there wouldn't be a way for the clock to suddenly jump 20 minutes.

Corrected entry: When Bruce is swimming to the plane the smugglers would know who he is,yet when they pick him up he is in his Batman guise. Surely they would realise who he was?

Correction: Different people. One group picks up Bruce Wayne and drops him off somewhere. Another, completely unrelated group, picks up Batman and drops him off somewhere else.

Corrected entry: During the big finale in the unfinished skyscraper, Batman discovers that the clowns are really the hostages. Why doesn't he contact Gordon and let him know right away? Batman was just in contact with Gordon on his way there (his batsuit is obviously equipped with a headset). Gordon could easily have alerted the SWAT team, and Batman would not have had to go through the trouble of methodically bringing down all the SWAT team members so they didn't fire on the hostages.

Correction: He was not in contact with Gordon. He was in contact with Lucius Fox.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: When the Joker kills Gamble, he offers two of his thugs to duke it out with a broken pool cue, so one could join the Joker's clan. What happened to that fight scene?

Correction: Not showing the fight does not constitute a plot hole, neither is it any other kind of mistake.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: When in the interrogation room after The Joker says, "Good cop, bad cop," Batman is about to push his head down, and the Joker closes his eyes and looks as if he were hurt the second before he actually gets hurt.

Correction: It looks more to me like he's reacting to the sudden bright light rather than any pre-emptive pain from Batman ramming his head into the table. Remember, he's just gone for near-darkness to bright light. A somewhat pained reaction is quite understandable.

Corrected entry: When Bruce Wayne is back in his penthouse after having saved Dent, but Rachel is dead, he is sitting in a chair in the Batman costume. The cowl and some other suit parts are on the floor behind him as if he shed them just before sitting in the chair. When you see his face, he has no eyeblack on. There seems to be no other way he gets the eye mask openings to be black - no fabric, no lenses - looking carefully it must be makeup of some kind.

Correction: The disappearing/reappearing eye makeup issue has been covered previously in scenes where it instantaneously changes. Batman does not wear eye make-up, period. The black is part of the cowl/mask. See the scene in Batman Begins when Alfred hits the defective mask with a hammer (00:58:35). You can clearly see the black membrane in the eye holes.

Corrected entry: Batman drops Maroni off of a fire escape which breaks his legs. A few scenes later outside of Dent's hospital room, he confronts Commissioner Gordon and he is walking just fine as though nothing happened. A few scenes later at the dock, Maroni is at least walking with a cane, but after a fall like that he would probably need a wheelchair.

Correction: He wouldn't exactly need a wheelchair. When he falls, he only grabs one leg, implying that only one broke. So if one is still unbroken, he would not need a wheelchair. Also, the broken leg could have had a leg brace, as said about a similar mistake.

Corrected entry: During the scene in which Maroni's men meet with the Scarecrow, you see the black Suburban pull up. As it comes to a stop, you can see finger smudges on the driver's door that were a result of earlier takes. When he gets out, he puts his hand in exactly the same spot.

Correction: There are smudges on the paint near the handle of my truck as well, from being used all the time. In this case, the truck is used by grimy criminals, so the smudges make perfect sense.

Corrected entry: In the opening scene as Joker's cronies are using a zip line to cross roof tops, a suspended camera is momentarily caught on scene while following the second person using the zip line. The following wide angle frame of the guys zip lining is obviously the camera that was caught in the frame just moments before.

Correction: That's not a camera, it's a bag full of their tools. One of the clowns is shown hooking it to the line and sending it before they go.

Corrected entry: In the beginning when The Joker is robbing the bank, he shoots one of the bank workers. Later, he takes off his clown mask and he has his full clown makeup on. Yet with the mask on he had no black rings around his eyes.

Correction: This is because the mask was totally covering his face, making his eyes totally invisible while he wore it. Hence, you couldn't see the makeup.

Corrected entry: When Gotham's citizens were being evacuated, there was an aerial shot that showed a gridlocked street (shot at Wacker and Wabash in Chicago) with many cars and individuals. In the next scene, Commissioner Gordon and the Mayor are speaking in his office. The view out his window are on the same streets (Wacker and Wabash) but with normal traffic flow.

Correction: Wacker and Wabash are streets in Chicago, not in Gotham City. Just because they used a nearby location for the Mayor's office does not mean it is intended to represent a nearby part of Gotham.

Corrected entry: When Bruce is on the balcony at Dent's party he dumps his glass out over the ledge. However, when Rachel walks out and it shows Bruce's back, you can see there is a ledge that the champagne would have splattered on that is dry.

Correction: When the champagne is tossed out of the glass, there is no sound of liquid hitting the ground. Obviously Bruce tosses the liquid past the balcony's ledge.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Bruce Wayne is standing on top outside of the building without his mask on you see his whole face. Once he puts the mask on the dark rings around his eyes magically appear black even though he didn't put any make-up on.

Correction: The black is part of the cowl/mask. See the scene in Batman Begins when Alfred hits the defective mask with a hammer (00:58:35). You can clearly see the black membrane in the eye holes.

Corrected entry: When Bruce first walks off onto his balcony during the party, he completely empties his glass over the edge. When Rachel comes out to speak with him, his glass still has a small amount of champagne left in it.

Correction: We do not see him completely empty his glass - he throws the champagne out with a flick of his wrist and it is more than possible that some remained inside. There is only a small amount left in the glass (less than there was before he threw some out), so it fits that some was thrown out but a small quantity was caught in the glass.

Corrected entry: When the Joker blows up the police station, in order to help him escape, everyone around and close to him, including his hostage, gets knocked out with the impact of the explosion, except him.

Correction: He knows what's going to happen - he's prepared for it. Nobody else in the building has any clue what's coming, so they get thrown to the ground, ending up either unconscious or so dazed and confused that they're unable to do much to stop the Joker leaving.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: After Gotham General is blown up; while Gordon is on the phone, he walks by what seems to be a boom crane on wheels behind him. Why would video production equipment be in front of a hospital? This thing surely didn't roll off a news van.

Correction: Why not? Joker made it known to the public that he was going to blow up a hospital. Any self-respecting news crew would make sure to be at a hospital ready to catch the breaking news, hoping they'd picked the right one.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: When describing ways to fly into Asia, "South Korean smugglers operating out of Pyongyang" was a possibility. However, Pyongyang is the capital of North Korea, not South.

Correction: So they're smugglers from South Korea who operate out of North Korea. Hardly implausible.

Corrected entry: When Batman is on the Batpod, he rides up to the shopping mall and starts shooting guns at the glass door. Inside, you can see the shopping mall beyond the glass doors, and next shot, the Batpod is driving through a concrete underpass. Next shot, the Batpod smashes through the glass doors of the shopping mall. The shot of the concrete underpass should not be there.

Correction: Previously submitted and corrected. The building has outer doors that he goes through first, then up a lengthy wheelchair access ramp to the inner doors. As he goes through the second set of doors, you can see the ramp behind him.


Corrected entry: The bus slams into the wall backwards during the robbery. (1) It would never have had enough speed to break the wall while going in reverse due to the other buildings across the busy street. (2) They easily open the rear door that would have been damaged and or stuck shut due to the impact.

Correction: The bus goes through glass doors, not walls, and needs little speed to do so. It strikes the wall above the doors, breaking it up a bit, and then comes to a stop quickly. And since the bumper hit the doors and the roof hit the wall above, the bus' back door hit nothing on the way in, so there's no reason to assume the door would be jammed- especially given how little the bus is visibly damaged in the remaining scenes.


Corrected entry: Lau, who is video conferenced in the mobster meeting, seems to see the Joker. But how? All we have is a TV set in the room; where is the camera?

Correction: Just because the camera isn't immediately visible, it doesn't mean that there isn't one there; Lau would hardly set up a video link conference where he couldn't see the other participants. Lau wishes to control the meeting - given that, he would conceal the camera, making sure that none of the mob bosses could switch it off, cutting him out of proceedings.

Corrected entry: During the bank robbery in the beginning, the Joker's hair turns from brown to green within one shot.

Correction: Heath Ledger's normal hair color is brown. There are "tinges" of green in his hair for the first scene of the movie, that change depending upon which direction the light is hitting him. Much like iridescent cars.

Corrected entry: When Batman is about to dive off the building in hong kong to kidnap Lau, he is wearing a high pressure mask with breathing apparatus that cover his face. However when he finally crashes through the building, the mask and helmet change to the normal Batman mask.

Correction: He only wears his new Batman mask that Fox re-designed for him so that he can turn his head. There is no special breathing apparatus or high pressure mask; you can see this clearly when he puts his new headgear on. He's not that high up, he would need no special breathing equipment on a skyscraper or for his extraction on a low-altitude airplane (if he did, he would also need to bring equipment for Lau).

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: Once inside Lau's building, Lau's bodyguards fire several shots at Batman while he is fighting. The bullets shatter the glass partitions inside the office but the exterior windows of the building, directly in the line of fire and only a few feet further than the partitions, are all entirely undamaged.

BocaDavie Premium member

Correction: Previously submitted and corrected. The shots hit Batman and either embed in his suit or deflect away from it, never striking the building's outer glass. The shooters are professional bodyguards, standing still, aiming at a target just a few feet away. We have no reason to assume they missed.


Corrected entry: In the "Clowns are hostages" scene, in which Batman and Fox are using the cell phone sonar, there are no cell phones in the building. It's a construction site and the only people in the building are the Joker, the clowns, and the doctors. Even if each of them had a cell phone, Batman and Fox both see all of the empty floors of the building perfectly.

Correction: One phone showed an entire office building lobby. Their phones all work together to enhance the signal. We don't know entirely how this fictional technology works so we can't say what it can and can't do, really.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene with the exploding hospital, the Joker has rigged what seems like every room in at least the wing shown on our right (since the explosive charges set off one at a time). It would require an absurd number of man-hours setting up so many explosive charges without being discovered, but the Joker has only been in the business of terrorism for a very short while.

Correction: Ignoring that we can't know how long Joker has been involved in terrorism prior to the events of this film, he has numerous henchmen to aid in his projects so that his role in planting the explosives can be quite minimal if he chooses.


Corrected entry: When Two-Face has hold of Gordon's kid and is flipping the coin to "decide" who gets to live, he flips and catches it in his left hand. Between flips, there's a close-up of the kid's face, and Two-Face is stroking the kid's hair - with his left hand. No coin in sight.

Correction: During the flips, when Two-Face strokes the kid's hair, the coin is between his thumb and index finger.

Corrected entry: The Joker's hair length changes dramatically throughout the film. It is noticeably shorter in the police interrogation scene than in the rest of the film.

Correction: When a person's hair is under different conditions whether it be wet or blow dried, or if someone was laying on it for some time, changes in volume occur. The hair seems to change in length but it is only to match the conditions in which the character has been engaged.

Corrected entry: During the 'know your limits' speech Bruce takes his shirt off and we can see that he is covered in cuts and bruises, yet when he's on the boat a day or so later he has no marks on him what so ever.

Correction: There is makeup called "concealer" for that sort of thing. Bruce is very wealthy so I'm sure he could afford plenty of the very best kind, and the stuff works wonders.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: When Batman is using his sonar technology in the unfinished building near the end of the movie, the Joker's black eye make-up shows up on the image. However, it shouldn't, as there is no reason for this make-up to resonate differently than the paint on the rest of his face.

Correction: Without knowing what each type of make-up he uses is made of, there is no way we can be sure how each would resonate.


Corrected entry: In Batman Begins, Jonathan Crane (Scarecrow) is seen with very bright blue eyes, but in The Dark Knight, the very same actor and character has brown eyes.

Correction: I re-watched this scene two times thinking the same thing. On closer inspection it is the dark lighting of the parking garage that makes his eyes appear brown. On some of the close-ups with the proper lighting (like when he is talking Batman) you can see the natural bright blue color of his eyes.

BocaDavie Premium member

Corrected entry: When Gordon smashes the bat-signal at the end of the movie, it is switched on. Aside from being a highly dangerous thing to do, there is no reason for the signal to be switched on in the first place. The whole point of Gordon smashing the signal is that the cops don't trust Batman, so they wouldn't be signalling for him. And it's not like Batman would answer it, since he already knows the cops are after him. Plus Gordon would probably get electrocuted since he used a metal axe.

Correction: A symbolic gesture - and a character choice, not a movie mistake. Gordon was there for Harvey's death and knows Batman will not respond. The wooden handle of the axe would protect him from electrocution.

Corrected entry: After Batman dives to save Rachel when Joker drops her from the party for Harvey Dent, we don't see what happens to the Joker and his henchmen who are still up in the penthouse terrorizing party guests. It's left unaddressed how the Joker gets away.

Correction: Something being left unaddressed is not a mistake. Think about it for a minute. The Joker and his armed minions are left behind in a room full of notably unarmed Gotham socialites. Who is there for them to 'get away' from? Once the Joker, who you may recall is there specifically looking for Harvey Dent, established that his target wasn't present, they just left. There's nobody there to try to stop them.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: When Bruce Wayne is done giving his speech about Harvey at the party, he goes outside and empties his champagne glass over the balcony. Yet, he doesn't have a champagne glass prior to that.

Correction: There are servers with trays of food and drink walking throughout the room. He could have grabbed the glass on his way to the balcony. The only purpose of this was to make it look like he was drinking thereby perpetuating the "party-boy billionaire" image. If he were holding a champagne glass in the middle of the room people would notice he wasn't drinking from it.

Corrected entry: During the scene where the SWAT caravan is taking Harvey Dent to central lockup, the helicopter above changes positions in regards to the truck as they approach. It appears to fly overhead, then hit the wires, crash, and fall in front of them when it should have already been behind them.

Correction: They're looking out their windshield at it. If it were flying over head they wouldn't be able to see it that way. The helicopter is always in front of them.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: Joker, being a notorious criminal, would be placed in lock-down/isolation in the county jail away from the rest of the everyday criminals.

Correction: This is an opinion, not a mistake. It's made entirely clear throughout the film that Gordon doesn't trust the staff down at County. While he's not entirely sure if he can trust his own men either, at least if he keeps the Joker nearby he can keep an eye on things personally. Plus the Joker's only in custody for, at most, a few hours, barely enough time to process him, let alone send him packing off down to County, even if Gordon was happy with the idea.

Corrected entry: During the end of the car chase, when the Joker is out of his truck and Batman is on the Batpod coming towards him, you can see a store sign that reads "Chicago Supply".

Correction: Not really a mistake. I live in Georgia and we have a New York Tailor Shop, San Francisco Grill, Chicago Dogs. That could just be the name of the company that happens to be located in Gotham.

Paul Brannon

Corrected entry: Alfred tells the story of when he was in the Army during the British occupation of Burma. The British left Burma in 1948. Alfred would have to be at least 80 years old for this to be a possibility.

Correction: Alfred never says that he was there as part of the British occupation, nor, for that matter that he was there as part of the British Army. The precise circumstances of his presence there are left extremely unclear. As such, the timeframe of his presence there cannot be stated with any certainty. Not to mention we don't know Alfred's age.

Corrected entry: When the Joker gets out of the flipped over truck and trips, the sign on the right reads "Sweet Home Chicago" (the movie was largely filmed in Chicago). A bit out of place in Gotham City.

Correction: It is not unthinkable that another American town could be advertised in the city of Gotham by a tourist board or some other company.

Corrected entry: When Harvey Dent falls into the gasoline, supposedly covering only one side of his face, he is sputtering and spitting and splashing gasoline onto his lips and the "clean" side of his face, yet in the hospital there are no signs of minor burns on the "clean" side of his face at all.

Correction: The small amount spattered on his lips and the other side of his face would have either evaporated or been wiped off by the time he was set on fire.

Corrected entry: At the fundraiser for Harvey Dent, as the Joker is intimidating Rachel, he says "You've got a little fight in you. I like that," then we hear Batman say "then you're gonna love me" and he hits the Joker. There's no way he could have got so close to the Joker without being noticed earlier, considering it's a brightly-lit room full of party guests and several of the Joker's henchmen.

Correction: All eyes are on the Joker, and Bruce Wayne was trained to be a Ninja - to become "invisible" when needed. The combination of these elements makes it very possible for him to appear in the room undetected. In the words of Jim Gordon, "He does that".

Corrected entry: Joker's henchman backs a stolen schoolbus into the bank's front doors. Despite the significant damage to the building, the bus suffers no appreciable damage, and it blends in unnoticed with a procession of other buses outside.

Correction: Shots of the bus inside the buidling show significant paint scraped off and a busted right-side tail light.


Corrected entry: Jim Gordon works in the major crimes division but wears a SWAT shoulder patch when the Joker is locked up.

Correction: Of course he is. He's supposedly dead until just before that point, and is disguised as a SWAT officer forming part of the transport team to move Dent to County. He just didn't change clothes yet - he's been a bit busy.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Harvey "Two Face" shoots the driver in Maroni's car, as the car flips over, you can see the Sears Tower in the background, obviously Chicago and not Gotham City.

Correction: Gotham is a fictional city. As such, there's no reason why it can't have a building resembling the Sears Tower.

Corrected entry: Cillian Murphy appears in the beginning of "The Dark Knight" selling his drugs, but does not seem to be psycho, this doesn't make sense as he was poisoned in "Batman Begins" and his dosage seemed to be more than enough to make him crazy (as evidenced by Rachel's dosage earlier in that scene). He is normal and calm during the deal and isn't crazy or acting out.

Correction: The Dark Knight is set some time after the events of Batman Begins. We don't know what's happened in the interim. The effects of Crane's toxins may simply wear off with time, Crane may have found a way to cure himself (even when crazy, he's still a genius biochemist), or he may simply have found a way to live with his insanity - recall that when we last see him in Batman Begins, after he breaks out of Arkham, he's calling himself Scarecrow but is otherwise operating relatively normally. Any one of these would explain how he appears normal in his Dark Knight appearance.

Corrected entry: After the hospital explosion, Commissioner Gordon calls in the National Guard. Only the governor can do that.

Correction: Gordon says that they'll need the National Guard. They could have shown Gordon contacting the governor, explaining the situation in detail, him agreeing that the Guard are needed, picking up the phone and making the call, but it would be a bit boring, don't you think? Waste of valuable screen-time? The filmmakers don't need to show every step in a process. Gordon wants the National Guard called in; the next scene shows them arriving. It's up to the audience to fill in the blanks.

Corrected entry: In the truck flip sequence, the Joker should fly through the windshield.

Correction: No. The Joker had forward momentum, yes, but the truck flipped so fast, he'd have smacked into the roof since that's what would have been in front as he continued forward. To put it another way, the truck rotated around Joker as he flew forward.

Corrected entry: When the Joker comes out of the hospital as it is exploding, he gets on a school bus via the back door. If you look closely you can see a stagehand/technician close the door, and is visible sitting up and giving a 'thumbs up' to the driver to inform him that he is able to drive off.

Correction: The Joker has multiple henchmen, and the bus is loaded with hostages (including the TV reporter). Joker's men are at both ends of the bus, guarding the hostages, and the one at the rear simply helps Joker in, then signals the driver that they are clear to leave.


Corrected entry: In one scene, Two Face's coin says it is from the year 1929, and in a later scene it says 1922.

Correction: More likely a trick of light or mistaken witness, as there's no reason to mint multiple coins with different years on them. The filmmakers would make multiples of one coin for the filming. For verification, a more specific accounting of when/where these views occur is needed, as the coin is shown very often throughout the film.


Corrected entry: During the chase on Lower 5th street, the Joker's truck is on one side of the armored van, but when the Joker begins shooting, bullet dents appear on both sides near Harvey and the SWAT officer.

Correction: Absolutely NO such damage is seen on Harvey's side at any point in the chase. And even if it had, there are other vehicles in the chase, as well as henchmen on foot, in windows, on fire escapes, etc- along the route.


Corrected entry: In the scene where Batman is on top of the building in China across from Lau's office he shoots approximately 3 timed explosives that stick to the exterior windows of Lau's office. When doing this he is at the top of a very distinctive building with "ribs" pointing up and over the top of the building itself. When Batman jumps off this building he glides across, away and down to Lau's office BUT as he gets closer to the building, just before crashing into Lau's office, it is the same one as he was standing on in the scene before.

Correction: I thought this at first, too, but if you watch closely in the wider shots, you see that these are actually two 'twin' buildings.

Corrected entry: In Batman Begins, we see and hear Gordon's infant child (when Batman talks to Gordon at his home), and then 6 months later in The Dark Knight, he has two kids which appear to be about 7.

Correction: So Gordon has three children, the youngest of which is either not home or just not discovered when the family is taken.


Corrected entry: When 'Two Face' Dent is holding Gordon and family hostage, only the undamaged side of his face is visible, while the deformed portion is in shadow. However, the edge of the damaged side is partially visible, and it is clear that there are some undamaged areas that were damaged before.

Correction: I watched for this specifically, and there's nothing inconsistent about the heavily-shadowed side of his face.


Corrected entry: Two-Face has only one eyelid. After 30 seconds or so, this would begin to cause harm, and very soon, blindness and deformation of the eyeball. It would have been more realistic for him to have a dead eyeball on the left side.

Correction: This has already been corrected. If he only has one eyelid he has no choice but to leave it open and seeing as how he has only had the facial scarring for a short time period, it's reasonable to suggest his facial features are not yet further deteriorating.

Corrected entry: When Batman fires his spikes into Joker's face to get the upper hand I found it really odd that Joker did not have the spikes in his face, or at least some obvious injuries, as Batman saved Joker from falling to reel him up. This is because earlier in the film, the spikes are able to stick to walls, but they can't stick to human flesh now?

Correction: Batman fires the spikes, but they hit the Joker's shoulder, not his face.

Corrected entry: When the Joker is riding away from the police station after he 'detonates' one of his henchmen, he is seen hanging out of the back of a squad car. For obvious reasons (possible escape) the back windows of a squad car are inoperable and the back doors can only be opened from the outside.

Correction: The electric windows in a modern police cruiser cannot be rolled down from the back seat; only from the front driver's side.

Corrected entry: At the end of the movie, Commissioner Gordon says that Two Face killed "5 people, 2 cops." Two Face only killed 1 cop; he didn't kill Ramirez. He also killed Maroni's driver (and maybe Maroni indirectly). That equals 3 people, 1 cop.

Correction: We didn't necessarily see everyone that Two-Face killed. Only the plot relevant murders.

Corrected entry: When the Joker is in the jail cell and the interrogation room with Batman, his hands are visible with paint stains and long nails. Once he escapes in the police car and is hanging out of the window he is wearing his purple leather gloves again.

Correction: Two totally different scenes with several minutes, at least, between them. He could have retrieved his gloves or been given another pair by whoever is in the car with him.

Corrected entry: The Joker's suggested backstories of an abusive father and a gambling wife are taken straight from the graphic novel "The Killing Joke", which along with "The Man Who Laughs" were the main influences for the Joker's portrayal.

Correction: In the graphic novel "The Killing Joke" the Joker starts out as a failed stand-up comedian who turns to a life of crime to make ends meet, there is no mention of "an abusive father and a gambling wife".

Corrected entry: In the scene near the end where Two-Face is holding the coin up to show the police officer and his family, the coin switches from the clean side to the burned side when the camera switches back onto Two-Face.

Correction: Ample time for the switch to be made off camera

Corrected entry: Every scene of the Joker shows him with very yellow discolored and crooked teeth, except in the video tape close up from the news footage, which is running on a loop in the equipment bay area, where his teeth are straight and white.

Correction: All of the televised video shots are in black & white, so you wouldn't be able to see that his teeth are yellow. Even the Joker's red smile appears dark almost black on the videos.

Corrected entry: In the scene where the Batman is interrogating the Joker, when the Joker is explaining to Batman how they are similar, there is a shot in which the Joker's vest it folded up, revealing a suspender strap. The shot changes to Batman, and when the camera returns to the Joker no strap is visible.

Correction: This one is simply explained, as Batman talks the Joker has ample time to fix his strap.

Corrected entry: The film contains several Bond movie references: the "skyhook" technology that Batman uses to extricate Lau is similar to that used by Felix Leiter at the end of "Thunderball", and Joker's hidden blade in the shoe is very reminiscint of Rosa Klebb's weapon of choice in "From Russia With Love".

Correction: The bootknife could just as easily be a reference to Kevin Kline's use of one in Wild Wild West, which is to say it's not a reference to either. The skyhook is a reference to the actual technology developed by the military, not to some movie which mimicked the same technique.

Corrected entry: As Harvey Dent is being transported in the SWAT van, the Joker shoots at the van many times with various guns. Each time they show the interior of the van, there are jagged bullet holes tearing through the sheet metal from the Joker's bullets, yet from the outside they show that there are no bullet fact, no visible damage at all.To top this off, as the bullets rip holes in the side of the van, the cop inside inexplicably says to Dent: "Don't worry, they'll need something a lot bigger than that to get through to us", right before the Joker uses his 'bazooka'(actually an RPG launcher).

Correction: There are dents from the bullets. There are no holes, no tears. These would be much harder to spot from the outside than an actual hole would be. Given the dark colouration of the van and the badly lit environment, they simply don't show up.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: This one bothered me throughout the trailer and in the film. Batman is driving through the mall-looking area on the bat-pod and shoots out the glass to the doors, the shot cuts to him riding up a ramp and then back to Batman now crashing through the glass he had just shot. The shots seems out of place.

Correction: There was a wheelchair ramp in front of the doors.

Corrected entry: When Batman and the Joker have their final confrontation towards the end of the movie, Batman throws the Joker off the building and he falls a significant distance before Batman saves him with his "zipline" device and hauls him back up. But we see Batman pulling up his zipline with his hands only a few times before the Joker is pulled the entire distance back up. Those few tugs of the zipline would have pulled the Joker up perhaps several feet, not the long distance he originally fell.

Correction: The gun is pulling the zip-line too. Batman is only using his hands to help it go faster.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Gordon and his officers rescue the consultant (Reese) who's about to reveal Batman's identity, they rescue Engel (Anthony Michael Hall) from the TV studio also. He is seen with Gordon and Reese in the police SUV when Bruce Wayne saves the day with his Lamborghini. However, Engel all of a sudden appears as one of the hostages being hustled into the school bus at Gotham Hospital, and is shown in the Joker's hostage video.

Correction: Nope. There's the driver, the officer with a wife in the hospital, Gordon, and Reese.

Corrected entry: Maroni was dropped from however many stories up, and an audible "crack!" is heard. However, we see him later walking without crutches. He does have a cane, but doesn't even use it while walking around to get into his car.

Correction: He may be wearing a cast boot over the cast on his leg. These boots cover the cast and help support the leg making it easier to walk even without crunches or a cane.

Corrected entry: In the scene of the assassination attempt the Joker, without his makeup, is disguised as one of the police officers who will give the gun salute. Even if we can suspend our disbelief that nobody recognized him specifically as being the Joker (even though he does have the same facial scar), how on earth could he have gotten himself chosen as one of the cops who would give the salute and therefore hold a loaded gun literally next to a high-ranking city official? I'd think that the police force would double-check and then triple-check who got selected to hold a gun in that type of situation. How did he get past that and fool everyone?

Correction: He and his thugs abducted and detained the men who were selected and took their place. He didn't show up at the police station, sans makeup, and apply for a position in the 21-gun salute then, after being legitimately selected, somehow convince the other six officers to fire on the mayor with him.

Corrected entry: In the scene where Alfred is burning documents in the 'batcave' furnace, it starts with furnace open where you can see him shoveling papers into a burning pile. The next shot shows him closing the door to the furnace, except there is no visible flame in the window. In the next shots the flames are visible again through the window.

Correction: Alfred is tossing, not "shoveling", and it's only one schematic that we actually see him throw in. Second, we can't see the flames because of the angle. In the next shot, the angle is different.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene with the 2 ferries, after the black guy throws the detonator out of the window, you can see Dr. Jonathan Crane(the scarecrow) standing in what appears to be a guards uniform, looking panicked.

Correction: No, you can't. There's a vague resemblance, but it's clearly not Cillian Murphy.

Tailkinker Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene where Batman is holding the Joker off the edge of a building and the Joker is obviously upside down, the camera angle is showing an very poor upright version of him. It's very obvious that he has a fan blowing underneath him and he is swaying back and forth.

Correction: His cheeks, lips, each individual hair on his head, and his coat all must have strings pulling them up too, then, because all those things appear as they would if Heath Ledger were actually upside down. And Batman isn't holding him either. He's hanging from Batman's zip line.

Phixius Premium member

Corrected entry: In the scene where Jim Gordon caught the Joker (after the car chase), we can see Gordon wearing "SWAT" glasses, but a few seconds later, he speaks with someone else and now wearing standard glasses.

Correction: Jim Gordon normally wears prescription glasses so he must have put them back on during those more than ample "few seconds" since he didn't need the safety glasses anymore.

Corrected entry: In the scene when Bruce Wayne is driving his Lamborghini through the city streets to protect Reese, his car's license plate says Illinois.

Correction: Actually, it says "Gotham" in cursive lettering similar to the Illinois plate.

JC Fernandez

Corrected entry: In the scene where Joker sets fire to his half of the money with Lau sitting on top, where did the money come from? Lau took the mobs' money out of Dent's jurisdiction. Joker had time to kidnap Lau, discover the location of the money, divide it in half and stack it to stage Lau's demise?

Correction: Since you ask, here's the answer: yes. See, Lau never said he took the money out of Dent's jurisdiction, only that he himself could leave Dent's jurisdiction. The money could have been hidden anywhere, even the very warehouse in which it was burned.

Corrected entry: In the shot of the construction building where the Joker is watching the boats in the harbor, Bruce uses the cellular waves as a sonar and you can see the S.W.A.T. designs on the back of the officers' vests. This is impossible due to the fact that the S.W.A.T. lettering is flat and would not show up as another color. Instead, almost all surfaces would show up as one color.

Correction: That part of the vest resonates differently due to having the plastic like acrylic paint covering the canvas, and therefore looks different on Batman's imaging device. It is, after all, a fictional technology described only as being like sonar.

Corrected entry: As the Joker begins the explosions to destroy Gotham General Hospital, bricks are raining down all over the street, yet the car and ambulance parked in front suffer no damage.

Correction: Watched this scene closely twice now... the Joker is standing a good distance down the street when he sets off the explosions, and there are no good close-up shots of the two vehicles after the explosions. It's not possible to tell the extent of the damage, and it is also possible - although unlikely - that the two vehicles didn't get struck with any of the debris.

Corrected entry: *Spoiler alert* During the car chase scene while transporting Dent the armored truck says GPD (Gotham Police Department) but later Gordon is told he is the new commissioner and his turtleneck says GCPD (Gotham City Police Department).

Correction: This happens throughout the film, but it's not uncommon in other cities. In Baltimore, the Fire Department has some equipment marked BFD and others marked BCFD, and still others marked BALTIMORE CITY FD, so as not to confuse it with Baltimore County materiel. The license plates are marked BFS (Baltimore Fire Service). Go figure!

Corrected entry: In the scene of the assassination attempt the Joker, without his makeup, is disguised as a police officer. And yet not one single person, not even one of the legit police officers, ever notices that something is wrong? Here is this guy with the same facial scar as the Joker right in front of them and nobody recognizes him?

Correction: Joker's appearance as a police officer is markedly different from that of his white-faced look. The fact that you and I recognize him in uniform is because we know Heath Ledger, and the plot demands it. In our reality, we'd have a very difficult time recognizing the clown from our kid's birthday party when his make up is off and he's shopping at Wal-Mart. Also, he's replaced all the cops in the honor guard with his henchmen, and Gotham is a big city where no cop knows every other cop, so it's even easier to not recognize that something isn't quite right.


Corrected entry: Although the Joker is by far the most popular Batman villain, this is only his second major feature film appearance.

Correction: Third, sorry. The Dark Knight, Tim Burton's Batman back in 1989 and the 1966 movie based on the Adam West TV series.
