    1. Heath Ledger's Death
    2. Christian Bale arrested at the London premiere.
    3. Morgan Freeman's car accident with his mistress.
    4. One of Nolan's brothers kills someone.
    5. The Colorado Shooting.

    Coincidence... or something more?

    Maybe a big fan of the other Batman films that didn't want the series to reboot? Or maybe just a coincidence

    If anything, using the term 'The Dark Knight' seems to be a curse.

    I wouldn't say it's cursed. But for those who are, don't forget Michael Caine hurting his face somehow and not making it to any of the pressers/premieres. I never did hear what exactly happened to him.

    Not this curse nonsense again. Everytime a movie or TV show or something has some kind of unfortunate incidents that happen to some of the people involved, someone brings up this "Is it Cursed?" garbage. Projects of this size are gonna have a lot of people involved (oftrn hundreds), and it's more statistically likely that at least a few of them will have something bad happen to them than it is that something won't. S**t happens, no need to bring in such supernatural claptrap. Pick a hundred random people up off the streets, and I can guarantee at least a half dozen or more recently had something bad, if not outright tragic, happen to them.

    Katie Holmes and Tom Cruise happened at that time and it completely overshadowed the film's release. Holmes went on talk shows to "promote" Batman Begins, and the only thing that happened was her relationship getting all the attention.

    The Dark Knight is my favorite Batman film, so I don't know what you're talking about. :confused:

    Correction:

    Katie Holmes was kidnapped by Scientology. Yeah... I guess we can add that to the list.

    Referring to somebody that didn't like the fact that they rebooted with Batman Begins, i have seen a lot of fans that didn't like this happening, the rumor of the Superman curse is that it was the character's creator who created the curse for DC screwing them over, but if it wasn't clear, i was joking, things like this happen, Bathead gave a good answer

    That is sad. Anything known of him since?

    I knew that Bale had a quarrel with his mother and sister, I thought he was arrested while it happened, not in a London permier.

    People didn't know that Nolan's older brother killed someone?

    Actually I forgot about that one, but I remember it now.

    You guys know that psycho wanted to kill Bale and the rest of the main cast during the NYC premiere right? The guy didn't try because he was paranoid about getting caught with a car full of weapons.

    I'm pretty confident he wouldn't have gotten anywhere close to succeeding because of tight security, but the thought is still a troubling one.

    Edit: I think everyone already knows about his original intentions. I'm pretty sure this is where I first heard about it, lol.

    Jack White, you should edit your post where you mention the murder by name. Dont give him ANYTHING. Besides people will get confused and think Katie tried to kill people...
