New this month Trivia: The use of "Rock and Roll Part 2" by Gary Glitter within this film caused controversy shortly after the film's release due to the perceived possibility that Glitter, a convicted sex offender, might collect royalties from the song's use in the film. This concern was unfounded, though, since Glitter had long since sold the rights to the song's use; the US rights are currently held by the Universal Music Publishing Group.zendaddy621
Trivia: While the time period of the movie isn't explicitly stated, the movies showing at the cinema the Waynes are at (Zorro The Gay Blade, Wolfen, Excalibur, and Arthur) were all released in 1981, making that the likely year it's set. The Zorro reference is certainly a nod to established comic continuity, where the Waynes were watching The Mark Of Zorro.
Trivia: Arthur and Sophie go to a diner on Jerome Avenue. The Gotham TV series featured twin brothers, Jerome and Jeremiah, the latter of which ended up becoming the Joker in the series.
Trivia: Arthur's dressing room for the talk show is 404. Batman #404 was the first section of the Batman: Year One storyline, covering the early days of Batman's crime fighting.
Trivia: Arthur's joke "When I was a little boy and told people I was going to be comedian, everyone laughed at me. Well no one's laughing now" is a near-direct copy of a joke from late British comic Bob Monkhouse.
