Trivia

In the library of Wayne Manor Bruce Wayne sits in front of the painting "Oath of the Horatii" (Le Serment des Horaces), by Jacques-Louis David. The iconography of the painting is traditionally seen as about self sacrifice to a greater good, heroism, loyalty to family, and sorrow about impending doom or loss, all themes in keeping with the Batman mythos.

Goofs

One weather balloon cannot lift an adult up in the air. For an adult like Lt. Bill Cranston weighing 200lbs or more you would need around 35 balloons. See more »
