  • It is the first live-action Batman film without the word "Batman" in its title, which Bale noted as signaling that "this take on Batman of mine and Chris' is very different from any of the others." And the first film to be ranked #1 on the IMDb within two days of its theatrical release which made more money than Batman Begins (2005)'s entire domestic run in only 6 days of release.
  • For its release in IMAX theaters, Nolan shot four major sequences in that format, including the Joker's opening bank robbery and the car chase midway through the film, which marked the first time that a feature film had been even partially shot in the format.
  • In the scene when The Joker gatecrashes Bruce's party, Michael Caine was originally supposed to have a line when the elevator arrives but he was so spooked by Heath Ledger's appearance that he didn't speak. Caine referred to him as "terrifying".
  • Heath Ledger designed the Joker make-up himself, using white clown makeup and cosmetics from a drugstore, reasoning that since the Joker himself would design and apply it, Ledger should do so as well. Once his design was approved, the makeup team was responsible for replicating the look each day for filming.
  • Christopher Nolan doesn't believe in deleted scenes. His tight and efficient way of writing and working meant that the script of The Dark Knight is all up on there on the screen. Except for one small scene. After The Joker gatecrashes Bruce's party, he gets into a getaway car, which can be seen in this rare still.
  • During the ambitious Joker/SWAT chase scene, an IMAX camera was destroyed. No biggie, you might think. Except that it was one of only four IMAX cameras in the world at that time. Oh, and each one costs $250k.
  • The Dark Knight was officially the film which received the most amount of complaints to the BBFC. In total, there were 364 of them, all appalled with the film's 12A rating in the UK.
  • In preparation for his role as The Joker, Heath Ledger hid away in a motel room for about six weeks. During this extended stay of seclusion, Ledger delved deep into the psychology of the character. He devoted himself to developing The Joker's every tic, namely the voice and that sadistic-sounding laugh.
  • Blood is only ever seen three times on-screen: on the face of the civilian Batman that the Joker hangs, on Harvey's pillow in the hospital, and on Batman's arm due to the dog attacking him; most of the violence either occurs off-screen or is obscured by camera angles.
  • Heath Ledger's posthumous Best Supporting Actor Oscar win marks the first time an Academy Award has been awarded in a major category to a comic book movie. Also Heath Ledger posthumously won a total of 32 Best Supporting Actor awards for his work on this film, including the Oscar, Golden Globe, BAFTA, SAG and Critics' Choice award.
  • Many believe that one of the key reasons why the Academy moved from five Best Picture nominations to 10 was because two of the best received films of the year - The Dark Knight (2008) and WALL·E (2008) - were not among the five nominees.
  • This was the first comic book movie to reach the $1 billion mark and this was the highest grossing Batman movie, and in fact the highest grossing of any film adapting DC Comics characters. Also 39 vehicles are crashed, shot, blown up, bumped, or otherwise involved in some sort of violence in this film.
  • Held the record for reaching the $500 million mark the fastest, after 45 days. The former record holder was Titanic (1997) (98 days). It has since been surpassed by Avatar (2009) (32 days), The Avengers (2012) (23 days), Jurassic World (2015) (17 days) and Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens (2015) (10 days). As of December of 2015, these are the only 6 movies to have reached this milestone.
  • Bruce Wayne drives a Lamborghini Murcielago in the film, which is the Spanish word for “bat.”Also it is the first film without any live or computer generated bats in it.
  • The luminous ceiling in Batman's secret bunker was lit by a grid of 300 fixtures each containing six 800-watt bulbs, consuming a total of 1.44 megawatts (1,440,000 watts)

Gordan:-Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now, so we'll hunt him. Because he can take it, because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector, a Dark Knight .
