The Dark Knight has a Spider-Man cameo that I guarantee you missed

The Dark Knight has a Spider-Man cameo that I guarantee you missed

Spider-Man swings by in Gotham City

The Dark Knight is widely regarded as one of the best superhero movies of all time and is watched by millions, but we can pretty much guarantee that you missed this Spider-Man 3 cameo.

Released in 2008, The Dark Knight is directed by Christopher Nolan with Christian Bale returning as Batman. However, the star of this highly-rated movie with a score of 94% on Rotten Tomatoes was the late, great Heath Ledger as the anarchist, Joker.

The Dark Knight is hands-down one of my favourite movies of all time and I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve watched this masterpiece. Yet, despite how many times I’ve watched this movie, not once did I notice this amazing Spider-Man cameo and I very much doubt I’m alone with this realisation.

As reported by, Tobey Maguire’s version of the friendly neighbourhood hero from Sam Raimi’s 2007 Spider-Man 3 can be seen in The Dark Knight as long as you squint your eyes and face-plant the TV screen. Well, I say “friendly neighbourhood hero” but this version of Spider-Man isn't always friendly considering that he’s been corrupted by a symbiote for most of the movie.

Tobey Maguire’s Spider-Man makes his cameo at the very beginning of The Dark Knight just before Joker pulls a heist on the Gotham National Bank. This cameo is very hard to see as seen in the image above and even if you thought you may have seen it in real time, I would assume your mind may have dismissed the prospect of Spider-Man appearing in a DC movie instantly.

I doubt we’ll ever get a proper live-action DC and Marvel crossover, so we might as well take this very small win. If for whatever reason you’ve never watched Christopher Nolan’s Batman trilogy, go and watch it now, but as for Spider-Man 3, you’re not missing much.
