15 Things You (Probably) Didn't Know About The Dark Knight

After Christopher Nolan saved Bruce Wayne from the eye-torching embarrassment of Batman & Robin with the excellent Batman Begins, we were expecting more of the same with his follow-up. But no one quite expected The Dark Knight to ignite the way that it did.

After we shared some nuggets of information about Nolan's first batcapade, here are 15 things you probably didn't know about The Dark Knight.
