1. In The Dark Knight, Joker introduces himself by taking off a clown mask, the same way that Cesar Romero's Joker introduced himself in the 60s Batman TV show -- their masks even look similar

5. The stinger with the Joker card at the end of Batman Begins isn't much of an easter egg -- it's a pretty blatant reference

6. This is a deep cut, but bear with us. When Bruce Wayne arrives at a party, he does so on the arms of ladies wearing three different colored dresses -- one is Cyan, one is Yellow and the other is Magenta -- the very same classic colors used in comic books
