Questions about specific movies, TV shows and more
These are questions relating to specific titles. General questions for movies and TV shows are here. Members get e-mailed when any of their questions are answered.
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 is it that in the part of the movie, when Banner has a beard, the beard does not show up when he transforms into the Hulk?
Question: When Gordon comes back "from the dead", what does he say? There was so much screaming and clapping that I couldn't catch it.
Question: Why did the Russian man keep kidnapping women (not men) for the doctors to attach the bald Russian man's head to?
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: 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: When Baby helps Penny out by dancing with Johnny at the Sheldrake hotel, it is stated that it is Thursday night (when Penny has the abortion). At breakfast the next day Baby's dad says they are leaving tomorrow, even though they are paid up til Sunday. Thursday night is the first night that Baby and Johnny sleep together, yet they seem to be seeing each other for ages before Johnny even gets sacked, let alone the time that's past when he comes back. I don't see how all of this be squeezed into 2 days?
