How IMDB leaked the ending of The Dark Knight


Considering just how top secret all information is around the new Batman movie its a hard thing to imagine but yes without any spolier warnings IMDB have posted on their website the ending to the Batman movie.

First we want to let you know that there are going to be no spoilers in this article. Since its been ruined for us we dont want the same for you!

Since the tragic end of Heath Ledger recently IMDB has been posting all the news from the Associated Press directly. What they included on their daily Movie/TV news page is nothing short of giving away the ending to the movie. The article called “Australia Mourns Ledger Loss” has an interview with a movie producer by the name of Clint Morris. Included in his quotes are statements that give no doubt about what happens to The Joker in The Dark Knight and what happens at the end.

For those who do want to read the spoiler it can be found here. Half way into the paragraph. As you can see it doesn’t exactly take a rocket scientist to figure this one out. For a set of movies where everything is kept secret to the point where fake production titles are being used we can imagine that Warner Bros will be talking to IMDB very soon.

We don’t want to spoil you purposefully or anything, but just in case IMDB takes it down, we present before you the news as it is on IMDB:


Australia Mourns Ledger Loss

Nicole Kidman and Mel Gibson have become the first stars to speak publicly about fellow Aussie Heath Ledger‘s shock death. The Brokeback Mountain star, 28, was found dead at his apartment in New York on Tuesday and Kidman admits the tragedy has left her heartbroken. In a brief statement, the actress says, “What a tragedy. My heart goes out to his family.” Gibson, who played the actor’s father in The Patriot, states, “I had such great hope for him. He was just taking off, and to lose his life at such a young age is a tragic loss.” And leading movie news source, Clint Morris, reveals Ledger’s fellow Australians have been left stunned by the news of the actor’s sudden death. Movie producer Morris, the man behind website, says, “The whole of Australia is in deep shock. I liked Heath. He was a good guy. Loved his daughter. Knew his sister too.” Morris reveals Ledger’s death will present problems for Batman producers – because the actor had already signed on to reprise his role as The Joker in the follow-up to this summer’s The Dark Knight. He adds, “I guess they can easily re-write it or re-cast. But yes, it’s true, Heath was supposed to return in the next Batman movie.” Hollywood is also mourning the actor’s death; John Travolta has revealed Ledger was “one of my favorite actors,” adding, “His abilities are rare.” And Alan Horn, the President of Warner Brothers – the studio behind The Dark Knight, reveals the shocking news has left movie executives “devastated.” Horn says, “The entertainment community has lost an enormous talent. Heath was a brilliant actor and an exceptional person.”

  1. dude, thank you very much, really I’ve been looking for this info all around the internet, thank you very much in did.

  2. it was widely known among Batnation that Heath had been signed to a two film contract. whether the joker’s role in the third film was large, or perhaps a smaller role like that of Cilian Murphy playing the Scarecrow, was not known because the third film is not yet written. This was hardly a spoiler.

  3. Duuuh… ok so what’s the spoiler? That the Joker character survives to come back for another fight with the Batman?

    …maybe the website would have been in real trouble if instead it revealed that (aaak) (slam) (kapowwwwie) (boff)

    [i]… tune in next week kiddies, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel for more exciting adventures…[/i]
