Dark Knight, Deep Throat

The Dark Knight rumours are getting more and more fun by the day. I'm not sure how many of them I believe - not many, anyway - but I'm honestly enjoying the circus of it all. There's less real news than in a double page spread of the Daily Sport, and twice as many fake boobs, but it's every bit as entertaining. The 'Hitler's Bus Found on Moon' of film stories.

This might be the most amusing set of 'spoilers' so far - not least because they come in the form of a video. To share it with you, I tried to upload it using Blogger's new video button, but that seemed to stall, so I settled for YouTube.

Now, I can't really make out every word, so you might not be able to either, but the general drive is clear: details of two scenes, each of them key, and each of them fairly well supported by things I already know for sure from other sources.

I'm expecting more of this stuff, which could be cool, but I'm not going to hold my breath. Many of the anonymous e-mailers who send me stuff (even stuff that turns out to be 100% accurate) fail to ever rematerialise. I guess we each only know what we know.


A lot of this is hard to hear but the odd gem is crystal clear - if you pardon the expression. Enjoy.

Sorry to keep my identity a secret from you. But it's properly for the best. It's appropiate anyway when dealing with a film like the dark knight with people with secret idenitys and wearing masks…
I've got things I want to talk about today, the first is a very important scene, and you might like this one… the joker has a big part in the dark knight. He's going to destroy gotham city and kill a LOT of people, he's setting the stakes really high then?! so the city decides to evacuate a lot of people. But they make a mistake being government officals. They forget about all the normal people, for the people they consider to be more important. They use all the boats, but the Joker threatens to destory the boats if te city doesn't reveal batmans real identity. So what he does is: when the city won't reveal his identity he gives them an ultimatum he rigs both the boats to blow up. One with all the important people on, the other with all the criminals and lots of lower class people. The problem is, that's quite a difficult morale dilemma. And you might aswell blow them both up anyway. It does explain something about the politicians I suppose. As you can tell from that scene, the joker is quite set on finding out the identity of batman. Who's real name is bruce wayne. At which in some point in the film Harvey Dent comes forward and pretends to be batman. Which thinks this will foil the jokers plot, which of course it doesn't. but it does endevor a lot of good feelings between bruce and Harvey. At which some point of the film Bruce comes out and protects Harvey. Now this party is full of important people. Now theres a scene in this sequence where batman has to go into a panic room and put-on/pull-off all his suit. As up there in the penthouse it's not exactly the bat cave. Now these are quite important scenes in the plot really. Two scenes main one which have already taken place, and another with the evactuess on the water being taken away by boat.most of that filming still to come and I wouldn't be surprised if lots of pictures appear all over you tube. Expect to see shots of batman atop of the penthouse. bruce actually goes up the panic room, raises up through the skylight then faces off with the joker. Infact this is properly going to be one of the sequences which is filmed in imax. As far as I can tell, it changes to the imax format as soon as he goes into the panic room. But I could be wrong. Got to wait and see, he might change his mind on the day. As I said, sorry to keep my identity a secret. But I hope you appreciate this information I share with you, and If I get anymore I'll pass it along. Thanks very much. Oh and if you think you know who I am, why don't you try getting in touch with me and ask me.
