2:09 PM TEXAS TIME: Director Chris Nolan and producer Charles Roven talked to KINO.DE and here's a bit of what they had to say (Note: translated via Google):

* As we already know, The Batman (Christian Bale) travels to Hong Kong. Producer Chuck Roven confirmed TDK‘s Asian trip, but would not reveal why Batman goes there. “Gangster hunting” was mentioned.

* The new Batman suit will be equipped with “lenses” -- some sort of Bat-sonar equipment.

* That prologue that will be shown in IMAX in December is the first 5 minutes of the film.

* Here’s a translated quote from Chris Nolan: “[THE DARK KNIGHT] is not ‘The Joker Begins.‘ We did not want to tell how The Joker became what he is. In those five minutes [of the prologue], we show how The Joker goes from being a small-time crook to Gotham‘s greatest villain. It‘s like ‘The Rise of the Joker.’”

Thanks to all the BOF'ers for sending the heads up!
