Dark Knight footage

As expected, DARK KNIGHT footage was shown over the weekend during the film's panel over at Wizard World Chicago. On hand were some of the film's stars including Christian Bale, Gary Oldman, and Aaron Eckhart, along with director Chris Nolan, and screenwriters Jonah Nolan and David Goyer. Although the footage itself hasn't popped up online (I don't think it will), WizardUniverse.com has put up a detailed description of some choice cuts from the film.

Some of the highlights included our first full shot of the Joker, seen with "a mess of white face, smeared red lipstick and sweaty, straggly green hair." At one point, he is arrested by Jim Gordon who says "no prints, no ID, custom clothes, no tags.” In an interrogation room, there's a shot of the Joker smiling with what appears to be blood on his face.

A scene occurs where Harvey Dent and Bruce Wayne meet for the first time, Harvey saying “Rachel’s told me everything about you” with Bruce responding "I truly hope not."

There's a scene where Batman and Joker are fighting in what appears to be a hospital room, with Batman launching the Joker over a table, who's dressed in his signature purple suit. There's a lot of Batmobile action, driving through flames and what not, leaving many to believe that maybe the Joker has set Gotham on fire. There's a shot of the Joker walking down a street, maniacally firing a machine gun, and a television closeup of him laughing hysterically.

Finally, there's essential confirmation that we'll be seeing Two-Face in the movie:

Two major additions to the speculation that Two Face will appear in the film came in the form of a single shot of a spinning 50 cent piece and the final image: after the action montage has slowed down, the camera cuts to a bartender looking at Harvey Dent, whose only onscreen presence is his left shoulder and a bit of a reddish-purple scarred neck. “Dent! I thought you were dead!” the man gasps, to which Harvey replies, “Half.”

Extra Tidbit: Are they bringing Two-Face in too early?
