Question: Was that really supposed to be the Scarecrow (from Batman Begins) at the beginning of the movie? (I know Wiki says it is but I'm not convinced this is the case for the following reasons): 1) I would assume that he's in jail. 2) Part of me thinks that this was a Scarecrow impersonator (just like the Batman impersonators), because he did look slightly different when they took his mask off. 3)If I remember correctly, Scarecrow was really an arm of the League in Batman Begins, so I don't see what he would be aiming for now that Batman has defeated the League. Anyway, any ideas out there?

Chosen answer: Yes, it's the Scarecrow. It's the same actor, the same mask, the same methods (drugs up the sleeve) and they state at the end of Batman Begins that they failed to recapture Crane after he broke out of Arkham. While Crane worked for the League, he has his own agendas too; with the defeat of R'as al Ghul, Crane's simply started working for himself again, supplying specialist drugs to the criminal underworld.


Question: Does Two-Face (Harvey Dent) die at the end? The film makers make it seem as if he does die from the fall, however, Two-Face is the main villain along with The Riddler in another film. Even if they don't plan on making another movie with Two-Face as the villain, they left the question of whether he's alive open.

Chosen answer: The suggestion appears to be that Harvey dies - Gordon and Bruce talk as if he's no threat any more and certainly show no rush to call an ambulance or to restrain Harvey, as you might expect if he was still alive. You can ignore Two-Face's appearance in Batman Forever - the two franchises have no connection other than character.


Question: Is there any reason why this film was toned down so much in comparison to the previous two films? Much of this film played like a Saturday-morning-cartoon, and less like the gritty and violent predecessors. Just curious as to why this radical (and unnecessary) change was made.

Chosen answer: They wanted to make the film approachable to a broader age group. Kids were into Robocop, even though the movies weren't necessarily "kid friendly", so they made the third movie one that parents wouldn't mind their kids seeing in an effort to get more sales.


Question: Why do Gordon and Batman say that Dent has killed 5 people? I only counted Maroni, his driver, Wuertz and possibly Ramirez.

Chosen answer: Harvey himself killed Maroni, the driver and Wuertz. The Joker killed a second cop in Harvey's hospital room - as the police don't know that the Joker was there, they would assume that Harvey was responsible. That's four. The fifth is possibly Maroni's other guard - there's one by the car as Maroni gets in, and Dent presumably kills him so he can get into the car too.


Question: What's the name of the first techno/dance song that's played in the masquerade ball scene?

Question: Has there ever been any clear indication that Luanne does or doesn't know about Nancy and John Redcorn's affair?

Chosen answer: There is nothing to specify that she did or didn't know but most of the characters bar Dale and Peggy before she found out, acknowledged it was common knowledge. As Hank pointed out to Peggy about how else do you explain Joseph.


Question: How does Batman break his and Rachel's fall from the building? They just seem to land on the car and they are both okay.

Chosen answer: With his cape. It wasn't large enough to allow them to gently glide to the ground, but it did slow their decent to a safe enough speed.


Question: In Charlie's house, why do all four grandparents sit/sleep continuously on the same bed all the time? Especially when one of them, who went with Charlie is perfectly capable of walking. How can four people be comfortable on one bed all the time? Secondly, what is in the middle of the bed, where they keep the food tray and where Charlie sits, during one scene?

Chosen answer: All four grandparents sleep in one bed because there is only one good bed and the family gives the one comfy bed to the elderly. His grandparents aren't supposed to be able to walk .


His parents weren't able to walk in the original but, in the 2005 movie toward the end when the house was moved into the factory, all grandparents are at the diner table.

Question: If the nanobots made Red Dwarf microscopic, why do they need to go around the asteroid field?

Chosen answer: Everything's relative: microscopic asteroid particles would now be just as much a threat as their larger counterparts.

Question: Exactly what is the significance of Harvey Dent using a two headed coin, before he becomes Two Face (other than to hint at his eventual transformation)? As Two Face, I understand it of course serves as a symbol of his duel mentalities and their constant clash for dominance, but as simply Harvey Dent what is it meant to represent?

Chosen answer: It's something that he uses to put people off-balance a little. He appears to put chance into his decisions, however, as both sides of the coins are heads, in reality, he'll always get the answer he wants, simply by calling that option as heads. As a rule, Harvey doesn't take it terribly seriously, but it does illustrate his repeated point that there's no such thing as luck - that you make your own luck. By using a double-headed coin, he's doing just that.


Question: Is Matt LeBlanc one of the dancing football players at the costume party?

Chosen answer: No. He was not.

Question: When Xavier and Addison are arguing, Xavier says, "The only door you know how to open is between your legs". How does he know she is a prostitute?

Chosen answer: He doesn't know she is a prostitute. He says that as an insult. Most likly implying she is, without knowing it's true.

Question: Commissioner Gordon's son, not the daughter, is featured as a Batman admirer. In the sequel, is there going to be a Robin that's the Commissioner's son, even though Joker's semi had the circus on the side?

Chosen answer: There's no indication at all that the creators of the current film series intend to add Robin as a character and given the aim towards a certain realism in the film series, it's hard to see how they could realistically work the character into the film. Christian Bale, for his part, has stated that if they try to introduce Robin, he'll chain himself to something in his trailer and refuse to come out until they ditch the idea.


Question: The Website Spook Central features an original teaser for the film with a noticeably different theme song. What song is it and who performs it? (It can be heard at

Chosen answer: IMDB says that it was a temporary song just used in that trailer. The song is appearantly by Glenn Hughes and Pat Thrall and can supposedly be found at Hope this helps.

Question: I can't figure out why the lizard is screaming when he is flying through the air because I'm sure that lizards don't scream.

Question: In the movie, when Viola is becoming a guy, they play "Love Is All Around" by Joan Jett & the Blackhearts. But the version on the soundtrack is sung by The Tea Queens. Any particular reason why?

Chosen answer: A. The music supervisor wanted a cover instead of the original. B. It's sometimes cheaper to pay for the rights to a cover than the original song.
