Dark Knight, The - So, Chicago is Gotham??
Ok, so why didn't they choose a city to represent Gotham City that wasn't full of obvious landmarks? You could tell they were in Chicago by the buildings and scenic attractions they filmed...Navy Pier, the Water Tower, Upper and Lower Wacker Drive, Michigan Avenue, a sky shot following the river running downtown through the buildings, the Tribune Building with "Chicago Tribune" clearly written, LaSalle Bank, Merchandise Mart...I could go on for pages! I think they should have either used a lot city they created or an obscure city somewhere that wasn't so recognizable!
