The OFFICIAL 'The Dark Knight' Thread

Since we have a few threads popping up left and right, let's try to put all the film news in this single thread.



Check that out. It's a creation someone made and sold on Ebay.


The new Batsuit:

It was constructed from 200 individual pieces of rubber, fiberglass, metalic mesh, and nylon. The new cowl was modelled after a motorcycle helmet and separated from the neck piece, allowing Bale to turn his head left and right and nod up and down. The gauntlets had their razors made retractable and able to be fired.

The bike has 508 millimeter front and rear tires,and made to appear as if it is armed with grappling hooks, cannons, and machine guns. The engines are located in the hubs of the wheels.

  • Michael Caine as Alfred Pennyworth: Bruce Wayne's trusted butler who tends to Wayne Manor.

  • Morgan Freeman as Lucius Fox: The recently-promoted CEO of Wayne Enterprises who had supplied Bruce Wayne with the gear necessary to carry out Batman's mission.
  • Maggie Gyllenhaal as Rachel Dawes: A childhood friend of Bruce and one of the few to know he is Batman. She serves as assistant district attorney under Dent.
  • Eric Roberts as Sal Maroni: A Mafia kingpin.
  • Nestor Carbonell as the Mayor of Gotham City.
  • Anthony Michael Hall in an unnamed role.

The film is schedgled to be released, in the USA, on July 18, 2008.

You'd better lock the other threads and redirect them here.

They replaced Tom Cruise's daughter as Bruce Wayne's love interest? Good, maybe now she'll look older than 12.

Heath Ledger as the Joker?



I'm glad I haven't been following the cast developments, let alone with any anticipation. Hopefully it's better than the last and they've refined a few things.

I like how the Joker looks more psychotic, but he needs to be grinning consistantly.

How did the Joker's face get mutilated like that? From what I understand, which is very little, it was just make-up and not actual scars.

What you must understand, SavedFromSin, is that the new Batman is hip and hardcore to the x-treme. It takes itself waaay seriously. And you should, too!

Have they even begun principle photography yet? I know that Indy Jones 4 just started shooting (or will in the next few days).
