Christopher Nolan’s “The Dark Knight” is still a year away, but that hasn’t stopped every scrap of information and spoiler from leaking onto the net along the way. Instead of trying to protect every little bit of information, Warner Bros. and the filmmakers should feel kind of good that so many people are THIS excited about their movie. The latest big spoiler comes from the folks at /Film, who just got an email from a scooper who claims to know some interesting SPOILERS from “The Dark Knight”, namely regarding Batman, The Joker, Rachel Dawes, and … a second Batman? Yes, it’s true. Well, not true true, but true that the spoiler (if it turns out true, that is) does involve those people/characters.
So here’s what /Film says:
* When The Joker (Heath Ledger) kidnaps Rachael Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal) from a big party, Dawes is forced to reveal Batman’s true identity, Bruce Wayne. Later, however, The Joker becomes convinced that Dawes lied to him when he encounters both Bruce Wayne and Batman in the same room together simultaneously. I have no idea how Bruce pulls this off. I would assume that if a Batman impostor exists, Joker would likely be in on that joke. This causes Joker to think that Bruce Wayne is NOT Batman and that Rachel, in fact, lied to him… His accusation of her deception doesn’t end well.
* Apparently there is an impostor posing as Batman who is running around Gotham City. The cops believe he is the real Batman and that he is on their side. How this plays into the big story is unknown. I know that this may seem very unlikely and improbable, but my source has not been wrong yet.
Yikes. So I guess when the Joker puts that knife to poor Rachel Dawes’ face, he’s not playing around… Or is the Joker the kind that goes for … acid? Hmm…
Anyways, /Film promises more SPOILERS tomorrow, including something about Two-Face.
