Batman Begins is a feature film adaptation of the Batman comics, starring Christian Bale. The film was the first of a trilogy which included 2008's The Dark Knight and 2012's The Dark Knight Rises.

Jim Henson's Creature Shop provided 2D compositing fixes in post production, as well as CGI rendering for the "memory cloth" shown to Bruce Wayne by Lucius Fox, which would later become the material for Batman's cape. Dan Sheerin served as Senior Technical Director for the Creature Shop.[1] In all, the Creature Shop worked on over 60 shots for the film.[2]
