Less Joker in Dark Knight???

by Irma Arkus

Cinema Blender reports a rumour that scenes featuring Joker are being edited out of The Dark Knight film.

Scenes entailed are featuring Joker’s pretense of being dead, wiggling out of a body bag, which is somewhat of a trademark for the character in both comics and animation.

Purported reasoning for this additional editing is merely tied to sensitivity of Heath Ledger’s death. Fans however, are concerned that this is unnecessary. Furthermore, I might even add that this mars Ledger’s final cinematic effort, and that to commemorate his work would translate into demand for more Ledger’s screen time, not less.
