Default Dark Knight paper research - Fan behaviours and Pilgrimage

Hi everyone,

I hope nobody minds me posting this here. My name is Ed Coleman and I am a film studies student studying in the UK. I am working on a paper about fan behaviour, specifically fan pilgrimages - people who travel to locations that are signigficant or relevant to a text, whether that is a book, film of whatever. I am very interested to hear from anyone who has visited any locations featured in any of the Batman films, while they were being shot or after the film came out. If this is you and you want to talk about your experience and Dark Knight fandom, please email me at!

Alternatively I have created a survey that anyone wishing to do so can complete here:

The survey only offers the opportunity for superficial responses, but it does give a reasonable idea of the types of things I would like to find out. Ideally respondents will contact me directly.

There is no ulterior motive here or big company involvement - I just need first hand data to research for my paper.

Thank you in advance for any assistance you can provide in my research, I look forward to hearing from some of you!

Kind Regards,

Ed Coleman

THE JUSTICE BULLETIN published some of my thematic analysis on the symbolism in Nolan's superhero saga.
I call it Heroic Archetypes. You can read the parts on Batman Begins in the following links:
