‘The Dark Knight’ Exclusive: Chicago Cell Phone Captures ‘The Dark Knight’ Batsuit

While I was out of town this weekend, I was informed that Sarah Piper Brown captured via cell phone “The Dark Knight” batsuit on a Chicago set.



After these photos were shot by Sarah, they were transferred to the Treo of a friend named Troy at the Holiday Club near the Clarendon set. Troy then ran in to Phil Tadros.

I finally received them from Phil’s friend and colleague, Anand Danak, and published them on HollywoodChicago.com. These mobile photos were taken on June 16. While it is unclear for certain whether Christian Bale is within or whether this is a stuntman, one expert claims the latter.

“This is a stuntman [or] stand-in wearing a version of the suit for blocking purposes,” said costuming expert Paul J. Wares of these photos in a public post.

He added: “[This is why] it’s during the day [rather than the night]. Go back to the ‘Batman Begins’ special edition and look at the suit the stuntman is wearing for the scenes where he’s taking the monorail/wire ride. You’ll see what I mean. Panic not [about how the suit looks].”

Here is a link to the photo that appeared in Entertainment Weekly, which is the only other picture of the batsuit known at this time.

By the way, I recently screened the film “Rescue Dawn,” which is being touted as Bale’s performance of his lifetime.

6/27/07 update: Following a vast array of news articles written in response to the photos first published on HollywoodChicago.com in this post, it has been globally accepted that these are exclusive first images of the live batsuit.

TV, DVD, BLU-RAY & THEATER REVIEWS

  • Bad Words

    Looming over “Bad Words” is the potential it could have had, as is, were it released ten years ago. With its focus of R-rated behavior poking at the projected innocence of children, along with the couple of chromosomes that keep Bateman’s Trilby from being a Vince Vaughn character, this movie is certainly a product of the comedies that have sculpted out the manchild story in the past decade.

  • Winter's Tale

    The theatrical poster for “Winter’s Tale,” after promising that “It’s not a true story, it’s a love story,” made a large demand from its viewers at the bottom: “This Valentine’s Day, Believe In Miracles.” While there is indeed a difference between filmmaking and marketing, it is hard to not imagine writer/director Akiva Goldsman whispering “believe in miracles” into the ear of every executive who helped “Winter’s Tale” come to life, immediately after throwing glitter on them.
