Gotham City Has A Freedom Tower? And It’s Also Under Construction?

THECOUNT.COM "ALWAYS OPEN! Since 2005!" - July 19, 2012

Get ready to suspend your belief systems big-time because in several establishing shots of the Gotham City skyline we see a prominent Freedom Tower, exactly like New York City’s Freedom Tower, and it’s even under construction, just like the real tower would have been during the filming of The Dark Knight. Huh?

Even-though Gotham is supposed to be a make-believe city, Christopher Nolan decided to use the tower as a specific call-back to the events of 9/11, a representation of New York City’s Gotham City’s complacency in the years following the Joker’s reign.

So you think I’m reading too much into all this? Just check out one of the posters created for Dark Knight, remind you of anything?
