  • "The Official "The Dark Knight" Thread"

    I'm a huge Batman fan, and I've seen one other member with Batman stuff in their sig, so I thought it would be a good idea to have a thread for this awesome movie that is coming out this summer.

    Anyways a few notes about the movie that I found:

    *There will be a new trailer attached to 10,000 B.C. The trailer will focus on Harvey Dent and Bruce.

    *Speeking of Dent, some pics of the TDK Two Face have found their way to the internet. I'm sure you guys can find them if you look. I myself was hoping that no two face pics would be released before the film so I won't be looking for them.

    *Sarah Jayne Dunn was signed for an unknow role in the film. It was assumed that she would be someone's arm candy, but movie sites are know reporting that she plays Harley Quinn.

    A bit early for an official thread eh? lol

    Anyways, thanks for the info on the new trailer, I'll have to look for it.

    As far as Dent goes, I'm hoping that they introduce and develop his character but don't fully turn him until the very end of the movie to setup the next one. Thats what I was hoping for with Venom in the last Spiderman and was thoroughly disappointed.

      *Spoilers involving Dent*








      Here's what I know about Two Face in the Dark Knight *Spoilers*
      *Dent shows up in a bar already scarred and the bartender sees him and says, "Dent? I thought you were dead." Two face responds, "Half"
      -This was a scene in footage shown at a comic convention.

      *In another scene Two Face gets into Maroni's (mob boss who scars Dent in the comics) car and flips his coin. He looks at Maroni and says something along the lines of, "Your lucky this time, but your driver isn't so lucky." Then he kills the driver.
      -This scene was described in an interview with the guy who plays Maroni.

      Other then that, I don't know anything about Two Face in the movie. I just hope Dent's story is very sad and tragic so the audience will feel sorry for him. I was hoping they wouldn't even reveal two face was in the movie, because I don't think common movie goers know Harvey Dent becomes Two Face.

      Can't wait for the movie though.


      I'll post anything I find on the film including pics, interviews and viral marketing stuff in this thread.

          Here are a few sites to warm you up whilst you all wait.

          I mean, I'm assuming everyone's already seen these but, here ya go:

          http://www.whysoserious.com

          for this one, if you click on the newspaper clippings, they burn away, revealing a treat...and there's also audio...and other little tidbits.

          This site was extremely active during Comic-Con and Wizard World Chicago when a lot of new TDK viral marketing exploded.

          like this site:

          http://www.rent-a-clown.com

          this is a site comprised of the many, many faces and individuals who were involved in the viral marketing during Comic-Con, and their scavenger hunt...

          I will try to find the video that reveals the phone number in the sky. I don't know if the number still works, but it was creepy as hell.

          also:

          http://www.thedarkknight.com

          the "official" website for the film....if you click on the bat symbol, you get:

          http://thedarkknight.warnerbros.com/HeathMemorial.html

          this is pretty somber stuff. before this tragedy happened, you would get this:

          http://www.ibelieveinharveydent.com

          When I Am Legend premiered, this site was launched:

          http://www.atasteforthetheatrical.com

          those who found the then new posters of Joker drawing a smiley face with blood would find that inscription on the bottom and be taken to that site where they could download the HD version of the theatrical trailer (not to be confused with the 7 minute prologue that debuted on IMAX prints only.

          also, a month before that film's release, hunters would come upon this site:

          http://www.thegothamtimes.com

          this is a four page mock-newspaper that reveals another certain hidden message if you know what you're looking for, much like the older, "hahahaha*see you in december*" hidden message that popped up a half a year ago and was all the buzz. I guess they kept their promise because we got the prologue with the IMAX "Legend" and we got that newspaper mock in hard copy if you went to the premiere.

          For now I think that's a good up to speed....I mean, there are tons of pics of The Joker, and many many more Batman online everywhere. Good sites to visit are http://www.superherohype.net

          and http://aintitcoolnews.com

          do not visit Jett's Batman site though because he's full of it, and will post anything he hears without doing research.

          Also, here is propably the first official TDK thread on this board...actually not first...a quick search within Anything But Football will reveal an entire list of threads about TDK...

          http://forums.denverbroncos.com/show...ht=Dark+Knight

          But yeah, it'll be nice to talk about the movie I've been excited to see since the credits of Begins ...uh.....began....

                hahaha, yeah, no kidding.

                actually someone on imdb was saying that they work at that starbucks and got to see some of the filming while they were at work...

                Also, it's been confirmed by my buddy at the theatre I used to work at:

                The new trailer for TDK WILL BE on 10,000 B.C. He said they got it in yesterday, but obviously won't place it on anything until they get the B.C. prints.

                  Also, the website: http://www.ibelieveinharveydent.com has been updated to allow users to enter their e-mail address in order to "join the fight" with Dent, etc.

                  still waiting on the e-mail myself but it's supposed to say:

                  "Citizens of Gotham! The future of our city rests in your hands! Alone, we are helpless against the thugs and killers menacing our city. Together, we have the power to take back Gotham. In just a few days, you'll find out how. Please, click below to verify your email address: ****************

                  Keep an eye on http://www.ibelieveinharveydent.com -- and get ready to join a movement that will transform our city!"

                    I signed up a few days ago, and haven't gotten an email yet either. Also gave them my number. Hopefully I'll get a phone call from Harvey Dent.

                      i checked yesterday and still hadn't gotten anything.

                      i don't think i'll be giving them my number, but the message you heard when you called the number they wrote in the sky at Comic-Con was downright disturbing!!!

                          i still haven't received any email.

                          also, did you notice Croc Jones at the bottom............hmmm that's intriguing, although that would be a stupid move on Nolan's part.

                            I believe the website is a fake. But it is still very cool.

                            Isn't Killer Croc in the anime film that's going to connect Begins with TDK?

                              I just voted in the poll, and it opened a link to a trailer, I thought for sure it was the new one, but it was an old one. I hope they release the trailer before 10,000 BC, so I don't have to go see that movie.
