To set the record straight about the last line in the spoof, it is not at all related about Heath Ledger, that never even crossed our minds until it was mentioned in the comments, we just thought the line was funny and could be related to heros in superhero movies. We would not make fun of a man who created the coolest and scariest villain to hit the movie screen in years. Give Heath Ledger the Oscar!!
The trailer took a couple months of planning, finding locations and time to make the costumes, it took 3 weeks to film/edit the movie. We made this video just for fun because we are all very very excited about the real Dark Knight Movie and couldnt wait any longer to see it so we decided to make our own. There are real shots of Chicago in here, but all main scenes where filmed in the suburbs around the city.
The deck of cards is a “Hooters” pack, so there is no nudity on them lol the blurry video makes it seem that way though and the music is all from the “Batman Begins” soundtrack
For everyone wondering about the joker costume…we made the entire thing from scratch, alot of looking for the right colored fabrics and finding patterns that matched his clothing…it took a while to make, and the dress shirt we made a stencil of hexagons and drew them in.
