Visible crew/equipment: When the Joker gets on the bus, after blowing up the hospital, about halfway along inside the bus is a large camera set-up. It can't belong to Mike Engel's news crew as it is not only too large to be hand held or shoulder mounted (it is one of the IMAX cameras used to film a shot from within the bus that wasn't used in the final cut) but also has a thick black cloth draped over it for the cameraman to work beneath. Obviously not a camera used by any news crew. (01:48:00)

Continuity mistake: When Joker puts the smoke bomb inside the bank manager's mouth, watch a green sign behind lying on the floor, with a tree painted on it. It has a stick on top which moves around between shots with no one touching it. (00:05:50)

More quotes from The Dark Knight

Trivia: To prepare for his role as the Joker, Heath Ledger lived alone in a hotel room for a month, formulating the character's psychology, posture and voice (the last one he found most difficult to do). He started a diary, in which he wrote the Joker's thoughts and feelings to guide himself during his performance. He was also given Alan Moore's comic "Batman: The Killing Joke" and "Arkham Asylum: A Serious House on Serious Earth" to read. Ledger also took inspiration from Alex in A Clockwork Orange (1971) and Sid Vicious.

More trivia for The Dark Knight

Question: In the scene where Batman shows Lucius his giant sonar thing, why is he talking in his big scary voice? Lucius knows who he is, so why does he bother disguising his voice?

Answer: It's habit, and a sensible one at that. When he's in the mask, when he's being Batman, he uses the voice, even if the person he's with knows who he is. If he drops back to his normal voice with some people, it sets the precedent for using it while wearing the cowl, which means that he's more likely to slip up and use it around people who don't know, potentially revealing his true identity. If he sticks rigidly to using the voice when kitted up as Batman, regardless of situation, it minimises that possibility.
