The Curse of The Dark Knight?

The Curse of The Dark Knight

Ominous music plays in the background. There’s an unholy mist swirling on the dark streets threatening the residents of Gotham or perhaps just the people who play them. Is it the Curse of The Dark Knight? When all else fails to explain the bad stuff that sometimes happens do the most logical thing and blame it on a curse.

When actor Morgan Freeman was in an auto accident on Sunday, the Curse of The Dark Knight reared its ugly fictional head. Freeman was the fourth The Dark Knight participant to have something bad happen to him.

The first was Conway Wickiffe, a special effects technician killed in an accident when his truck hit a tree during a test run of the Batmobile. The most famous is the untimely death of actor Heath Ledger, the Joker, from an accidental overdose of prescription drugs in January. Then came the incident and arrest of Batman himself, Christian Bale, on charges he verbally assaulted his mother and sister.

And finally the car accident that sent Morgan Freeman to the hospital with what were described as serious injuries. The actor is now described as having a broken arm, elbow and shoulder damage. It’s said he’s doing well.

Is there a curse? And why would there be a curse? Are the Olsen twins somehow involved? Are they part of a secret coven with witches yet to be named? So much mystery and we need to know the answer. What do you think? Is there a curse on The Dark Knight? Or is the curse all wet and it’s just happenstance?

But her first love is writing fiction and film criticism which some people think are the same thing.
