Chistopher Nolan Denies That Pollution Affected ‘The Dark Knight’ Stunt

The director of the next Batman film said Friday a planned scene in which the caped crusader dived into Hong Kong's harbour was cut because of script changes and not the water's severe pollution.

Producers had reportedly been forced to pull one scene involving the hero of "The Dark Knight" -- played by Christian Bale -- jumping out of a plane into the city's famed Victoria Harbour, as the dirty water was too dangerous.

"That was my decision, nothing to do with pollution. It was simply a script decision," said British director Christopher Nolan, who also co-wrote the screenplay for the latest instalment of the Batman franchise.
