Let me start this post by saying I don’t think there’s any truth to the following rumor. I’d like to get your opinion on it though, so I’m going to give you a brief summary and a poll to participate in. ShowBiz Spy is claiming that their sources say Christopher Nolan wants to pay tribute to Heath Ledger’s Joker by giving him a cameo in The Dark Knight Rises. This would be achieved by using extra footage from The Dark Knight, as well as some CGI.

It’s easy to dismiss this rumor since Nolan has stated multiple times that he wouldn’t feel comfortable having The Joker in his final Batman film. The idea is interesting though. What do you guys think? Vote in the poll below and discuss it in the comments.

Update: Warner Bros.’ response to this rumor? “It’s just not real”. [via Moviehole]
