Dark Knight footage

08.12.2007
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.”

Hmm..any reservations I had about the Joker NOT having bleached skin is gone with this. The Joker sounds fucking AWESOME..I really hope they release this as another trailer...in December probably? Yet another thing to look forward to before the year is up.

if someone has a video of it...honestly i would be shocked dead. the security there was completely insane. they didn't allow even so much as a basic cell phone (no camera or video attached on it). a buddy of mine who i went with said that 3 people were removed from the line in front him because they had a phone on them or some sort or other recording device. plus, they closed the doors and had security stationed there. believe me, there will be no video. to add to the secrecy of it, nolan took

Wow I would've killed to be there. That sounds absolutely fantastic.

Anyone know where this video can be found??

TWO FACE - in Nolan we trust

The first movie was perfect. Why should we assume he is going to screw it up? As for 2-Face...my guess is that could be the final shot of the movie - the one at the bar. In keeping with what was started in the first one...the last scene is the playing card and the suggestion of the Joker. The last scene of this movie could be Two Face appearing, letting us know who to look forward to in the next movie.

believe me 'paulie,' had you seen the footage and the way the joker was presented, you would have been like "holy shit, that is creepy AND thats the joker!" i dont think you would have rolled your eyes. then again, people who weren't there are entitled to their own visage and opinion of how they perceive the footage. if gary oldman says "it will blow you away" then it's gotta be true.

I fail to see how having Harvey Dent in a movie spoils the notion that he'll become Two-Face a some point. That's like having Bruce Wayne become Batman, no surprise there either.

Joker

Sounds like this Joker will give Nicholson's a run for his money. I thought Nicholson's was a good joker but not 'scary'. Anywho, I think Riddler is kind of a lame villain to begin with. Even on the animated series the creators confess they only gave Riddler 3 episodes because they found it difficult to write stories about him. I'd rather see Penguin.

awesome

That line that Bruce pulls is slick. Very niceeeeeeeee.

Hope they aren't pulling Two Face in too early, sounds like Venom deja-vu to me, and unfortuantly, Venom was not the best part of Spidey as he should have been.

I'm taking this the same way I did with Venom. Saying we're going to see Two-Face on screen doesn't mean he's going to be a major villain. It could be a two plot film with Joker as the villain and focus, but showing a second plot to the audience that Bruce Wayne doesn't see coming in the form of building his relationship with Dent and preparing for Two-Face and then having the scene described above be the final scene.

PLEASE GET TWO FACE RIGHT!

Please please please Chris Nolan do this right with Two Face, ease the character in and use his character in the next film for a bigger role. Don't let it be another Venom incident! Too much too soon just doesnt work. Who agrees?

I don't doubt the clever guy, and all I can say as a regular Schmoe is--wish I'd been there. I'm really hoping that Two-face is brought in to be the main villian in III, and I'd rather see a good version of the Penguin than the Riddler, although these guys can probably do a better job with the character than anyone but the great Gorshin himself.

the riddler hasnt been confirmed, nor has anthony michael hall being the riddler. i would love that you're right, but no one has confirmed it. plus, two-face is not a main villian (again, unconfirmed), but from my understanding from the panel, they're setting up harvey dents character throughout the movie and then more than likely showcasing him towards the end (hence the "only half" quote...at least thats my assumption).

Did everyone forget the riddler

I'm pretty sure that Two-Face will be a main villian in this movie along with Joker, and Anthony Michael Hall will show up near the end as the Riddler, and he'll be the main villian in the third movie.

i was lucky enough to sit on this panel, and oh my fucking god was it amazing! literally amazing! and yes, i'm putting it extremely lightly. i will say this: for any doubters...HEATH LEDGER IS THE JOKER! although there was no audio as far as the joker is concerned, heath ledgers performance, at the glimpses, indicate that HE IS the joker and as gary oldman himself put it at the panel: "it will blow you away!"

The Dark Knight

As long as they put Two-Face's appearance toward the end of the film to suggest that he will be the central villain in part three.

On the other hand, if that IS the ending, then the surprise the ruined.

Warning!

I love to hear about some footage but this may have to have a SPOILER WARNING tag with it because this seems to tell me alot about the movie. Especially the Two Face part. Other than that, I cant wait to see this! Hopefully the art direction is top notch still..
