Who Almost Played the Dark Knight?

It's tough to picture anyone other than Christian Bale as Batman in Christopher Nolan's trilogy, but plenty of other actors were considered. See who they were.

Trivia

Some of the scenes in the film have x's in them. This may be a nod to Martin Scorsese's The Departed(2006).


Quotes

Grumpy: Three of a kind, let's do this!
Chuckles: Huh, that's it? Three guys?
Grumpy: Plus two guys on the roof. Every guy gets a share. Five shares is plenty.
Chuckles: *Six* shares. Don't forget the guy who planned the job.
Grumpy: He thinks he can sit it out and still take a slice? I know ...


Goofs

Gordon tells his men not to inflict any physical punishment on the Joker, because he doesn't want to give his mob lawyer any reason to question their methods. He subsequently knowingly leaves him alone in an interrogation room with Batman.


Crazy Credits

Large blue flames dissipate in the center to form the new Batman symbol. The film title does not appear until the the closing credits.


Alternate Versions

The Blu-ray version of the movie has several of the big action scenes and high altitude photography scenes in ordinary 16:9 (1.78:1) widescreen ratio while the rest of the movie preserves the "scope" format (2.39:1). This is because these scenes were filmed in IMAX, whose format is 1.44:1, thus attempting to recreate the effect witnessed in IMAX theatres, as well as preserving as much of these shots as possible.
