Christopher Nolan has put to bed one of the most bizarre rumours of the year - that the late Heath Ledger would appear in the next Batman movie.
Despite passing away in 2008, the film industry has been abuzz with rumours Nolan was going to include unseen footage of the star in The Dark Knight Rises.
There was speculation that leftover footage of the Aussie star would be repurposed to include in the third installment of the Batman franchise.
So is it true?
Nolan has shot down the rumour, firmly stating, "I heard the rumour. We're not doing that."
He also shot down any suggestion that he should include Ledger in the film, saying his Oscar-winning performance should remain strictly in the confines of the previous movie.
So there you go!
