Sandy Hook Reference In Batman: Dark Knight Rises Movie

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

After all the weird coincidences with the Colorado Movie Theater “incident” and Batman… Now check this out.

In this movie scene from Dark Knight Rises, “Sandy Hook” is about the only legible text on the whole map, and a guy puts his fingers on it. Someone in another thread says the dialogue at this point i “There are no coincidences.”



Coincidence?  This is getting super spooky now.  How weird is this.  1:58 into the movie, watch it.  This is more than enough of a coincedence i thinkbecause of the Aurora theater shootingand the theme of it all that there is indeed some mysterious group behind this.  This is just too odd…  -Mort

      Can anyone verify this…a screen shot perhaps?

      • Anonymoose

        OK, I missed your pictures…I blew them up and sure enough, it says “SANDY HOOK” on the map.

      That is frikkin stunning! Thanks for posting it and lets spread the word. No coincidence at all and blatantly obvious predictive programming by our satanic elite. One of their rituals is to telegraph there intent right in our faces like this. Awesome catch – well done:)

      moose, try the links in the article – screenshots are waiting for you. Top left corner zoom right in. It also appears there’s a red pentagram immediately adjacent the ‘Sandy Hook’.

      You guys know that Tv show ‘person of interest’? It’s about a gov surveillance program. Well the creator of that show happens to be the brother of the dark knight director. :shock:

          I don’t know if this is a genuine wow or a sarcastic wow? :???:

    • stranger in a strange land

      So were these children sacrificed?? Its one of the first items that came to mind. This evil knows no boundries. Please wake up America, we are about to lose our country. They will do anything to gain control and this proves it. Satanic evil, lucifer is their god, wake up.

      • chris from oz

        Yup. No doubt about it. They’ve jumped the shark on this one though – it will shock a lot of people who normally scoff at the truth. It’s a sheeple shaker and will spread fast – very difficult to get a lid on it too, as the movie has hit the stores (and probably downloaded a billion times). A person would have to be in denial to the point of dementia to not accept the implications of those few chilling frames. We are livestock to the elite, and this pre-planned, pre-meditated ruthless massacre will show the masses who see the truth how far they’re prepared to go.

        • TruthHurts

          people ARE in that type of denial though.

          and im not going to be the one to get yelled at and attacked for saying this is obviously a false flag either. if people have not awakened yet…they probably never will.

          i did my own research, no one ever held my hand, not once! your mind and your perception is up to you. its not up to me to teach these idiots anything.

    • Chris Jacob

      wow..this just blew me away….so it was another psy-op as suspected by the alternate media.

      Wasn’t we just got a Sandy Hurricane just like a month ago.

        what to you mean “but USA first?”

        the whole world has basically been disarmed already! the USA is the only country left!

    • terry the censor

      I made a quick check:

      Sandy Hook, Connecticut
      Sandy Hook, Kentucky
      Sandy Hook, Maryland
      Sandy Hook, Mississippi
      Sandy Hook, Missouri
      Sandy Hook, Wisconsin
      Sandy Hook, Virginia

      Sandy Hook, British Columbia
      Sandy Hook, Manitoba
      Sandy Hook, Ontario

      Yeah, Sandy Hook is not a rare name. I’m sure others can add to this list.

      • TruthHurts

        are you stupid?

        i cant stand sceptics like you. i bet you dont believe in anything do you? always a way to debunk anything at all isnt there?

        i’ll spell it out for you moron:

        1. dark night theater shooting in military industrial complex capital of the world – Colorado

        2. sandy hook massacre referenced in hollywood movie.

        if you dont see the connection, there is no helping you. you’re done.

        @terry the censor

        This thread is not for you, believe me. Get out while you can.

        • Anonymoose


        • Medical Student

          Since the movie was released before the shootings occurred – one could also argue that the shooters intentionally carried out their crimes where they did because they saw the words ‘Aurora’ and ‘Sandy Hook’ in the movie.

          That is most likely not the case – but this argument would be just as valid as the one on this thread.

          (Btw @Terry – I hope you understood what I meant by my comment).

        • Mayhem

          I hear that.

          Your ‘which way round does the horse and cart go’ argument is interesting but is it pertinent as to whether or not the powers that be are harvesting us? I’ll over explain….

          Was the crime committed because the movie instructed it. Or. Was the crime foretold by the movie and does either precept reduce culpability?

          Food for thought.

          ps You and I have history it is true, Mr Student, I bring none of that with me here.

        • Mayhem

          You’re right and hilarious about terry the censor. :lol:

          He should run being a little afraid. :mad:

        • RAINSCRYPT

          Med stu and Mayhem.. the point presented here also struck me as the “chicken or the egg” variety.. and a good point, valid as can be. in talking to a person recently who is definitely not unfamiliar with the conditions of mental disorders, she made the same point. if lanza did indeed have autism, asperger’s.. and also other conditions such as schizophrenia, (thus far unknown), then he could easily have picked up on subtle references within the film and acted out on what he may have perceived as a confirmation of his angers and fears. so, the question is, did adam lanza watch the film and was he particularly susceptible to perceived suggestion?

      There have been numeorus TV programs and movies that have shown people the “future”. Star Trek is one famous example of a TV program and movie series wherein the technologies used in the series became a reality. Vanilla Sky, Minority Report, Sphere, Terminator, War of the Worlds are just a few of the movies that have shown, through their symbolism, what is to come. Look at the video games that are out now! First person “shooter” video games don’t have any effect on people, especially young minds, do they? Theres nothing EVIL in these, and other games, like Guitar Hero, in which there are numerous Satanic/Luciferian images and lyrics, right? When humanity figures out what is really going on, which some of the posters on here are beginning to, will it be sheer terror to understand that EVIL is taking over? Batman is an evil personality disquised as a hero! Same for Superman and Spirderman! These hero’s espouse the purely humanist idea that MAN can, through the applications of science and technology, whether accidentally or purposefully, become SUPER HUMAN, GODLIKE!

      Tried to post a comment on this but it was censored. Must have hit a nerve! Seems this is happening alot lately on various websites with similar content like this website. Anyone questioning why there is so much similarity in what is being brought up for discussion on these types of websites?

    • curiousAKgirl

      Sandy Hook is referenced in there twice. Look at time stamp 48:16. Mentions something about Sandy Hook being funded to be replaced with monorails instead of busses. Funny how they announced the school is being closed indefinitely.

      Funny, how Dark Knight was opposed to guns.

      • TruthHurts

        well i wouldnt say its funny.

        • curiousAKgirl

          Yes, you are right… not funny at all. Strange is the word. :)

    • Quantum Kev

      Wow, I gotta’ say – THAT is creepy! And if it is a coincidence, it is an incredibly disturbing one. Good find, whoever caught this!

        “Good find, whoever caught this.” I assume you dont mean Lanza kid.

      Surely the director of dark knight rises (Christopher Nolan) must be taken in and questioned over this. According to wiki, him & his brother Jonathan wrote both the story and the screenplay, along with a David S. Goya. Aurora and Sandy Point both being shown so clearly on the screen…along with the hunger games connection??? We need some answers NOW and these three wise guys are the obvious place to start.

      • pbjfb

        his brother jonathan is the creator of person of interest. if you ever watch that show, you know how they have a computer program that can watch EVERYTHING we do. :idea:

      Here is a great picture of the map.

    • DeniBow

      So how do you make the jump from to the reference in the movie to the individual responsible for this -what would be the theory on that one? Just curious.

    • Breeze\\\\\\\'sMother

      Does the map indeed match Sandy Hook Connecticut? I assume so.

      Very chilling and wish this was more public.

    • rebecca dagg

      I have watched the movie. and sandyhook was NOT wrote on the map.. this is a photo shop.. in future look for the source material instead of believing the edited crap people choose to show you.


        not sure what movie you watched but the one i watched certainly does have this scene and sandy hook written on the map….. just because you choose to be a sheeple doesnt mean the rest of us will….

    • Archer

      Here’s one with a close up on Sandy Hook. It’s VERY clear here. Sick!

    • Pinkandpepper

      In my copy I can’t see it, (but I have a bad copy of it). The whole map art is pretty blurry. I’ll have to look into it more..

    • Redspider

      Could it not just be a coincidence? Afterall, Gotham is supposedly located on America’s west coast in the vicinity of New York/New Jersey. If you would care to take a look at the map of that area, particularly beneath Staten Island/Brooklyn, you will see Sandy Hook Bay. Maybe that area was named many years in advance in reference to these tragic events.
      If you type Sandy Hook into Google maps, it will take you to a place in Kentucky. Perhaps you can make some kind of diabolical link to that too.
      Get a grip. coincidences happen, especially when it comes to place names in the USA.
      Americans aren’t exactly the most imaginative of peoples.

    • jenny

      Gets even stranger in Wikipedia. For the Aurora 2012 shooting, it says: “In the wake of the shooting, DC Comics delayed the release of Batman Incorporated #3,[89] which includes a scene in which a female Leviathan agent brandishes a handgun in a classroom full of children while disguised as a schoolteacher.”

    • komorusan

      what this means is that we will be taken to the civil war they need to begin the process of taking total control. This means that we will end up in NWO weather we like it or not. Its the beginning of sorrows. The beginning of the new age of enlightenment into the kingdom of Lucifer. The beginning of the end. Well, just bible prophecy being fulfilled.
      Hold on to the Cross my friends.

        Religion is not the answer. A change in gun laws and better understanding and care of mental health is.

      • Mayhem

        A fundamental shift in our understanding of the difference between right and wrong would do far more than a million laws ever could.

        You show fear and you want the nanny state to tuck you in and read bedtime stories.

        Canadastan has a lot more guns per capita than Americastan does let look at the crime statistics.

        • Mayhem


          Meet the new world order same as the old world order they are still just the powers that be. Total control has already been ceded the only option left is for we the sheeple to rise up and take control back. It’s all in how you view at things.

          The powers that be want us to think we are fighting for our last few privileges. This way we are distracted from realising that we already have no rights. This powerful elite are laying awake at night worrying that we are all learning many truths and that soon we may well have them in our sights.

          This system’s gonna fall soon, to an angry young tune and that’s a concrete cold fact. Rodriguez, The establishment blues.

    • Sossy

      Mort, others are in agreement that this was no coincident. Nor was the Colorado theatre killings. Also, the father of the Colorado killer was to be a witness in a Congressional hearing with evidence that the father, a computer expert, stumbled upon including names of what is about to happen in the banking businesses. And I have a funny feeling, too. Life is all about timing. And timing is the gun control issue, without a doubt to my mind. The poor darlings that suffered in the meantime. Those little souls are in heaven, most certainly!

      Dogcom, watch this video on Hurricane Sandy and you tell me?

    • MissingRonnieR

      Not three minutes ago I saw a commercial for the new Tom Cruise movie where Tom walks in to an Advance Auto and asks to see “Sandy”. That is fact and occured during Monday nights recording of “Pawn Stars”. You know what it means? Nothing. It means nothing.

      Here is one for you . Make note of the next time you go through a day without hearing the word “Monkey”. They will be few and far between.It means nothing.

      so we who are not blind and dumb and just plain stupid know our government is evil and has sacrificed those poor children to their god lucifer,and at the same time are gonna use this to make a gun grab,so what do we do,how long are they gonna get away with this kind of evil without someone making them pay for it,the sheep will all be killed there is no hope for them so there is no use trying to explain this to any of them.

      The two tenets of the Illuminati 1) In plain sight 2) Plausible deniability. If you pay attention, you will discover that our world is completely controlled by evil; not just here and there but everything. Earth is a prison planet for evil beings that have been forced to reincarnate here for thousands of years. Most are not part of the imprisoned on Earth but they are controlled and manipulated by the evil group, who took over the planet. They have made slaves of us all by introducing money. The slaves snap into line, when you demand a certain behavior, so that they can get their food and shelter. Earth is a slave planet. No civilized world, uses any form of money, there is no hunger and disease is all but unknown, there is no war and there is no deception. Earth is a creep show that scares the hell out of alien races. We have been conditioned to call life on Earth “normal” but it is hideous and we lack the perspective to know the difference. What I am saying is very, very basic and if you follow the threads of info, you will discover that we live in a truly monstrous world. The veil is about to be lifted and the evil elite will never reincarnate on Earth again.

      I have confirmed this and with this post you will also see that exactly 365 days before Sandy Hook, this map was sent out to fanzines of Batman (Fully referenced), and also how Hurricane Sandy (the hurricane that “hooked” to the east coast, i.e., Sandy Hook) entered Manhatten via the exact place on the map (There really is a Sandy Hook barrier island, but not where the map shows it, and not the same shape / size). You can also overlay the map of the Batman movie on the google map location of the school and it lines up perfectly (again in my post). Finally, on the Batman map, just up from the Sandy Hook reference is Hoboken, and the street where Ryan Lanza (The brother) lived. Please visit the fully reference post (including the clip from the movie) at and share this information so we can get it out. I will be posting an in-depth article about all the inconsistencies of this story in the near future.


        it was only a dream, eh? that was brilliant.

      • WinstonSMith1948

        I have updated the post so it is now at

        • WinstonSMith1948

          the person who actually designed this map is Elliot R. Brown, who was an artist for D.C. Comics, and you can read his story on how he designed the city map and why here: You can see, through reading the story and the drafts of the map, how it did not start out looking like the final version from the beginning (ie, the map’s shape and locations). Now, the fact that “Sandy Hook” is prominently displayed on the map may be due to Scott Getzinger, however, as you say, he died in Apr 2012, so no way to confirm (Unless you can provide me a link). The point being, if he DID create the blue lines on the map that line up perfectly with the google map of Sandy Hook elementary, Why did he do it, and why would he circle the exact area on the map as the Sandy Hook elementary school when both this map and Google maps are lined up? Lastly, why would a prop master be given the leeway to show an important plot device any way he wanted to (i.e., to make it so everything lines up with Sandy Hook elementary?)…too many coincidences for my blood, but that’s why I allow all commentary here. Thanks again for this insight, and for pushing me to research it a little more…here is the finalized map Elliot R. Brown produced:

        • WinstonSMith1948

          If you look at the film credits at the end of “Dark Knight Rises”, there are two different locations listed: U.S. and U.K. In the U.S., the Prop Masters were Mychael Bates (Lead), and Assistants Tommy Altobello and Matt Cavaliero. In the UK the Prop Master was Barry Wilkinson and assistant Peter Bigg. Either Scott Getziner did NOT work on this film, and did not annotate the map, or he did, and they for some reason do not want to give him credit. Again, it would make no sense for him to be given leeway to create a plot element on the map (which, as I have already shown, was not designed by him) so it would line up with Sandy Hook Elementary Google maps, and I have to assume, unless proof is given otherwise, he played no part in it, as I would accept the actual film credits as authoritative.

          U.S. Property Master credits screen capture:

          U.K. Property Master credits screen capture:

          Scott Getzinger’s resume (which does not list Dark Knight Rises) –

          And yet, we have the N.Y. Times stating he was a prop master on Dark Knight Rises:

          Lastly, I have searched line by line through the entire film credits and cannot find his name listed anywhere, under any position. Another strange anomaly in this strange saga…

    • Bill

      OK – so this is simple. The evidence is there – so now the cops need to go to the makers of the movie to ask them exactly whose idea it was to have that map say ‘Sandy Hook’ instead of Tri-corner as it did before. Whoever came up with that must know something. It is way too much of a co-incidence. First the batman shootings, now this. How can that possibly be a co-incidence? Any police investigator that thinks that is a co-incidence is a fool.

    • Just_Pietzche

      Did anybody consider checking out who the prop master was for the movie? I did.
      The prop master for The Dark Knight Rises was Scott Getzinger of Newtown, CT, which means there is a very reasonable explanation for the words “Sandy Hook” to appear on a map in the film — he did his shopping in and around Sandy Hook. I consider this debunked.

      • bigbuffalobill

        Scott Getzinger of Newtown, CT Just died in a car ‘accident’. Google. If you don’t believe it, Google “Scott Getzinger of Newtown, CT,” Is this still debunked?

    • Zahra

      In th esame movie, there is a building shown that has “Aurora” written on it…..that’s the name of the area of colorado where the movie theatre shootings took place…….just keeps getting creepier!
