Audience Upset Over Heath Ledger Scene In Dark Night Screening


Heath Ledger's
portrayal of The Joker in the upcoming movie The Dark Knight might be a little too much for audiences to handle. 

An early screening of the movie left viewers stunned to see Heath's character playing dead in a bodybag.  The unsettling scene has prompted studio bosses at Warner Brothers to consider cutting the footage from the sequel when it hits theaters in July. 

While it is very disturbing to see given the circumstances, it doesn't seem like Heath would have wanted it to happen. A source close to Hollyscoop that worked on the film said Heath put his heart and soul into his role as the Joker. It only seems right to keep his entire performance, or as much as possible, in the movie.
