Théories du complot à propos du 11 septembre 2001
Le 30 avril 2009, Daniel Sunjata annonce sa participation en tant que narrateur dans Loose Change: An American Coup, qui était le dernier d'une série de documentaires, collectivement connus sous le nom de Loose Change, qui argumentent que les attentats du 11 septembre 2001 ont été planifiés par le gouvernement des États-Unis. Il a aussi déclaré : « Je crois absolument à 100 pour cent à cette théorie ».

Les producteurs de la série télévisée Rescue Me, inspirés par les opinions des fans de l'acteur, ont créé une intrigue secondaire lors de la cinquième saison de la série, dans laquelle le personnage de Daniel Sunjata, Franco Rivera, suscite la controverse dans la caserne des pompiers quand il annonce ces mêmes points de vue à un journaliste.

Eight years after Harvey Dent's (Aaron Eckhart) death, the Dent Act grants the Gotham City Police Department powers which nearly eradicate organized crime. Feeling guilty for covering up Dent's crimes, Police Commissioner James Gordon (Gary Oldman) writes a resignation speech confessing the truth but decides not to use it. Batman has disappeared, and Bruce Wayne (Christian Bale) has become a recluse. Cat burglar Selina Kyle (Anne Hathaway) obtains Bruce's fingerprints from his home, kidnaps a congressman, then disappears. Selina hands Bruce's fingerprints to Phillip Stryver (Burn Gorman), an assistant to Bruce's business rival John Daggett (Ben Mendelsohn), in hope of having her criminal record erased. Stryver double-crosses Selina, but she uses the congressman's stolen phone to alert the police to their location. Gordon and the police arrive to find the congressman, and then pursue Stryver's men into the sewers while Selina flees. A masked militant named Bane (Tom Hardy) captures Gordon. Gordon escapes and is found by John Blake (Joseph Gordon-Levitt), a once-orphaned patrol officer who has deduced Batman's true identity from their similar backgrounds. Gordon promotes Blake to detective, with Blake reporting directly to him.
