Actor says the new Batman film is a tribute to Heath Ledger
‘I know there are a lot of people out there who don’t think this movie should be shown,’ 34-year-old Christian says. ‘But I think that’s insane. It’s an insult to Heath and everything he stood for.’
Fans say the scene in which Heath’s character The Joker is carried into the street in a body bag should be removed.
But Christian, who plays Batman in the movie, says the movie should remain unchanged as a tribute to the 28-year-old.
‘I don’t think anything should be cut – it’s the movie he wanted to make,’ he tells Live magazine.
‘The guy was brilliant. He was a fantastic actor and he put everything into this part. I absolutely know without question that he would have wanted everyone to see it.
The Dark Knight is released on 25 July.
