The Dark Knight Trilogy is one of the most critically acclaimed and financially successful movie series of all time. By merging modern world issues with classic Batman lore, writer and director Christopher Nolan played a key part in ushering in the current age of superhero movies. People love these movies, and so naturally many are constantly on the prowl for new snippets of intriguing facts detailing their production. However, Nolan is known for being a particularly secretive director who, similar to a magician, likes to keep details of filmmaking a mystery. He is not especially fond of commentaries and, yes, deleted scenes. In fact, since he usually doesnt start filming before he is completely satisfied with a script, not much is actually deleted from his films. And since he considers his theatrical cuts to be his directors cuts, dont expect to see what little deleted material there is any time soon. Because of this situation, the deleted scenes of The Dark Knight Trilogy have a certain mysterious quality to them. You want to see them but you cant, and so much speculation surrounds them. Between production shots, scripts, and novelisations, the line between what is genuine deleted material and what isnt is blurred. The following is a collection of these deleted scenes, some of which were left on the cutting room floor, while others never made it beyond the script.
