The Dark Knight Rumor: Film Edited Due to Heath Ledger's Death

by at . Comments

Cinema Blend has published an interesting rumor regarding The Dark Knight.

According to that movie site, a scene has been deleted from the next Batman installment because it too closely reflects the unfortunate passing of star Heath Ledger.

Reportedly, the scene involves The Joker pretending to be dead, photographed in a body bag.

If this rumor is true, we think it's a mistake by producers. The Joker was Ledger's final performance. The best way to honor the actor is to showcase the role in its entirety. Don't panic and cater to overly sensitive, misguided, politically correct-minded people who can't differentiate between reality and fiction.

What do you think? Should The Dark Knight be edited down due to Ledger's death?

The Dark Knight Quotes

I had a vision, of a world without Batman. The mob ground out a little profit and the police tried to shut them down, one block at a time. And it was so... boring. I've had a change of heart. I don't want Mr.Reese spoiling everything, but why should I have all the fun? Let's give someone else a chance. If Coleman Reese isn't dead in sixty minutes then I blow up a hospital.

The Joker

Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one it needs right now...and so we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a silent guardian, a watchful protector...a dark knight.
