(at around 1h 22 mins) Following the truck flip at the end of the car chase, the Joker approaches Batman, and 2 of his henchmen are visible: One who touches Batman's mask and gets electrocuted, and another who stands to the left of the screen, doing apparently nothing. This henchman disappears completely after Joker spits on the other, and is nowhere to be seen when Gordon arrives.
Christian Bale is credited with playing "Bruce Wayne" but not "Batman" in the closing credits.
