Coincidence of Curse?
The Dark Knight Trilogy has been plagued by tragedy
The horrific mass murder during the midnight premiere on Friday is the latest in a series of horrific tragedies and that have surrounded Christopher Nolan’s Batman films. These events included deaths and damage at such an extent perhaps not seen in any other production.
Prior to the massacre, the most prominent of these events was the January 2008 death of Heath Ledger from an accidental prescription drug overdose.
In October 2007, towards the end of production of The Dark Knight, special effects technician Conway Wickliffe died when a camera truck struck a tree.
During production for The Dark Knight Rises, in November 2011, an unidentified man died of a heart attack while on break from the rehearsal for a large scene that included hundreds of extras.
Morgan Freeman received serious injuries and had to be cut from the vehicle after a car accident in rural Mississippi in August 2008 and had to receive surgery. He was later sued by the other passenger in the car.
Christian Bale was accused of assaulting his mother and sister during the London premiere of The Dark Knight in 2008. He was later cleared of the charges.
During production of The Dark Knight Rises, a stunt woman for Anne Hathaway stuck and damaged some expensive camera equipment.
Several days later while filming a sequence for Batman’s area vehicle “The Bat” it was severely damaged.
A trailer for the production also crashed into the gate at Wollaton Hall.
Thankfully no one was injured from these accidents.
Whether you believe in curses or not, there is no denying that the consistent tragedies surrounding these films is adnormal. Perhaps paranormal.
