Question: In the very beginning in the fight between Batman and Scarecrow, Batman grabs a rifle and bends it with his bare hands. I've never known Batman to have super strength before. I know he is strong and agile above Olympic levels, but not to be able to bend metal. Or does his Batsuit give him a boost in strength? This is something also that would be new since Batman is known for his utility belt and being the greatest detective in the world, but not for super powers.
Question: Near the beginning of the film, in 1946, Rick and Evie are asked to take the Eye of Shangri-La to China as a peace offering from Britain, and a subsequent shot is them arriving in China in 1947. Since the task seems to be of extreme importance, why do they wait an entire year to deliver it?Cubs Fan
Question: On the DVD's front cover it says that this film is based on a true story, but I have heard a rumour that this is a complete lie and the entire film is fictional. Is this true and if so are they allowed to say it's based on truth, when it's totally made up?
Question: Near the end of the film, we are shown what is presumably a memorial service to a deceased Harvey Dent. Yet, I read on IMDB a few days back that Aaron Eckhart, the actor who plays Dent, has signed up for a sequel. My question is this: since Eckhart IS coming back, does that mean the memorial service, and the smashing of the Batsignal were mere speculation on Gordon's part, or is he brought back to life somehow, despite Nolan's insistence on a "realistic" take on Batman?
Question: When Peter goes to the doctor after losing his powers, he lies to the the doctor about a dream that he had, where he was Spider-Man and he was losing his powers. Then, after describing it, he says that it is actually his friend's dream. Chances are that the doctor saw through him, and suspects that Peter really is Spider-Man. Will the doctor end up being a villain, or at least have a significant part in upcoming movies?
Question: Why did the Russian man keep kidnapping women (not men) for the doctors to attach the bald Russian man's head to?
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?
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.
Question: What's the name of the first techno/dance song that's played in the masquerade ball scene?
