The DC cinematic universe is full of awesome villains. Joker, Zod, Two-Face, Lex Luthor, Poison Ivy, Bane, and Harley Quinn are among the villains that translated wonderfully to the big screen. This means that their weapons and fighting styles translated nicely as well.
As such, here are weapon and combat details fans noticed about DC movie villains.
In 'The Dark Knight,' The Joker Opens Both Doors To Fire An RPG Out Of A Trailer
Redditor u/herrfrosteus pointed out this detail, which has been praised for its accuracy. When the Joker fires the RPG from a trailer, he makes sure both side doors are open. If they weren't, everybody on board would have been injured by the back blast.Hits the mark?
The Joker's Pencil "Trick" In 'The Dark Knight' Was A Real Stunt That Knocked Out A Stuntman (Three Times!)
Nolan, who had worked with his production team on magic tricks in previous film The Prestige, decided to stage the stunt for real, with the stuntman swiping the pencil away at the last minute – so swiftly and at such an angle that it wouldn’t be obvious to the viewer.
“We did a couple of half-speed rehearsals just to get the hand action of my right hand sweeping across, taking the pencil as my body was going down, and my head striking the blank surface,” stunt actor Charles Jarman recalled to Vulture. “It was a little hairy, because the pencil’s stuck in the table. If, for some reason, I didn’t get my hand in time, we wouldn’t be having this conversation. Well, possibly through a Ouija board.”
Jarman apparently had “three knockouts” while filming the scene, which was the only time Heath Ledger broke character, asking Jarman “Are you okay? Are you okay?”Hits the mark?
