Heath Ledger died of an overdose of sleeping medications and painkillers in January after wrapping filming on "The Dark Knight." He had had trouble sleeping and his disturbing role as the psychopathic "Joker" was hard to shake, the actor told the press.

Batman/Bruce Wayne actor Christian Bale‘s mother and sister filed a complaint with local police in London alleging the actor had assaulted them the day before the big "Dark Knight" premiere there.

Now Morgan Freeman, a third "Knight" star, has been in a one-car accident in Mississippi and has been airlifted to a hospital in Tennessee.


Is there a "Dark Knight" curse? Or is this just all just a series of very sad — and very eerie — coincidences?

What do you think?
