Director Christopher Nolan said on Friday that a planned scene in which Batman dived in Hong Kong’s Victoria harbor was cut not because of water pollution, but instead because of script changes.
Nolan said: “That was my decision, nothing to do with pollution. It was simply a script decision. Once you see the finished film, you will understand why. As far as the pollution question goes, I honestly have no problem dumping movie stars in it.”
Nolan was responding to a report from the AP which said the scene was cut because the water’s pollution contents poised a health risk (you can read that article here).
The Dark Knight, follow-up to the hit 2005 film Batman Begins, hits theaters on July 18, 2008.
