The Standard is not known for comic book movie adaptation news. Instead, it is known as a source of information for Pan-Asian businesses. So, it was kind of surprising to see them reporting that the next Batman movie will be filming in Hong Kong:
Workers and residents in Central and Western should be prepared for chaos when Batman arrives in Hong Kong in November, a district councillor warned yesterday.
Kam Nai-wai, of the Central and Western District Council, also warned residents to prepare ear-plugs as the producers intend to use a helicopter in the late hours of the day.
Oh, I get it. The most interesting part is that they’ve given a bit of the plot away in the process:
Kam’s warning followed a district council meeting yesterday at which the distributors for The Dark Knight, a sequel to the hit movie Batman Begins, outlined how the caped crusader intends to move from Gotham City to fight his enemies who are gathering in Hong Kong.
So … The Joker is in Hong Kong for some reason?
