20 Behind-the-Scenes Secrets from The Dark Knight
All Three Villains Disguise Themselves as a Henchman
One interesting detail that unites every villain in Christopher Nolan’s Batman universe is how we meet them. In all three films, the central figure disguises themselves as a henchman before revealing their actual identity. This is certainly a clever ploy, and it’s one that’s easy to miss when you’re first watching the trilogy.
Even so, it’s the kind of touch that makes every movie in the series feel unified without being too obvious. Batman’s villains are, for the most part, remarkably cunning. As it turns out, they also have some very similar ideas for how to sneak up on or surprise their enemies.
