Did David Letterman Ruin 'Dark Knight' For The Rest Of Us?


David Letterman may have ruined the ending for anyone who intended to see "The Dark Knight Rises," which translates statistically to everyone in the world.

Anne Hathaway, who plays Catwoman in the film and was a guest on Thursday night's show, didn’t seem pleased as she gasped, "Dave!"

Then tried to save her own butt by distancing herself from the pending media storm, “I just want you to know the wrath that you have just invited onto yourself.”

And threw in a disclaimer for director Christopher Nolan banning her from ever working again (it’s that serious), “Chris, I had no part in it, I'm sorry."

Dave joins a long list of people who think it's appropriate to ruin key plot points in lieu of being able to intelligently discuss a film without totally blowing narrative elements that are slowly, carefully developed to surprise/thrill/shock/elate the audience.

Well, heads up all you reviewers/interviewers/bloggers, some of us live for this stuff, and it’s not fair of you to soil the experience looking for headlines and sound bites.

I mean, we are still going to buy our tickets and overpriced popcorn, sit back and wait for the magic to happen -- but just so you know, you've created a dark cloud over the theater that essentially rains all over what some of us have been waiting for, for years.

Shame on you Dave. The Dark Knight himself ought to swoop out the sky, and kick your ass.
