Quotes

Grumpy: Three of a kind, let's do this!
Chuckles: That's it? Three guys?

Goofs

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 1.43:1, thus attempting to recreate the effect witnessed in IMAX theaters, as well as preserving as much of these shots as possible.
