Reply To: Batman stunt guys snub filthy Victoria Harbour


Now, denial that story change in Batman was due to pollution – but is this true, or is this holy PR?

Director Christopher Nolan said the scene was axed due to a script change, and that it had nothing to do with the health risk posed by the harbor's filthy water, as had been widely reported in Hong Kong media. "That was my decision (to cut the scene), nothing to do with pollution. It was simply a script decision," Nolan, who also directed the earlier "Batman Begins" told reporters in Hong Kong. "Once you see the finished film, you will understand why. As far as the pollution question goes, I honestly have no problem dumping actors in it."
