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)
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.
