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.

Quotes

Grumpy: Three of a kind, let's do this!

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

(at around 51 mins) When The Joker confronts Rachel at the party and tells her about his wife, the angle at which he's holding his knife changes several times between shots - in one such change, he holds it against Rachel's cheek at a side-view, then has it under her nose immediately afterward during a close-up.


Crazy Credits

The DC logo contains two comic-book images: a shot of the Riddler, and picture of Batman punching him out.


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.
