Is Batman jinxed?
Morgan Freeman seriously hurt in car accident.

“They had to use the jaws of death to extract him from the vehicle,” McFerrin said.

First Heath Ledger’s death, then Christian Bale’s arrest and now this?

I dont believe that nonsense.

Heath died while making another movie, he had finished principle photography on TDK.
Christian's arrest only got big publicity because of TDK's success.
As for Morgan's accident, Shia Lebouf not affiliated with Batman was also in a car accident recently.

Its just bull for people to talk about. Where is the source for this 'curse' 'jinx' stuff from?

Well I'm not superstitious by nature but all 3 guys played major roles in Batman and they've all had some pretty serious, bad things happen to them within the space of one year. I try to balance not reading too much into things with being open-minded.

i hope and pray he'll be fine..He's one of my very favourite actors..

I think he will be. He was lucid during the extraction and he cracked jokes with the bystanders. He's a wonderful actor and apparently, a very strong man, both physically and spiritually.

I hope he's okay.

I think he will be. The article said he was lucid when he was extracted and he was making jokes and laughing. He seems like such a strong guy. I'm sure he'll be fine.

They are freaky coincidences but I don't think it is a curse.

You're probably right. Maybe just one of those really weird coincidences.

BTW, have you finished Breaking Dawn yet?

I just got it yesterday and am about 200 pages in. I maybe done by Friday night the latest. A big review will be up by the weekend for sure.

I finished now.

Have mixed feelings about it. There's a whole lengthy review on my journal.

It's a fairly weak jinx, if that's what you want to call it. While Ledger's death was pretty tragic, Bale's problem wasn't nearly as serious as it initially seemed, and it sounds like Freeman is going to be okay.

It does sound like a weird series of unfortunate events, but it is a BIG movie getting a lot of attention, so if something happens to members of the cast/crew, they're bound to get a lot of attention as well.

I thought he was arrested for attacking his mom and sis? That's pretty hard-core.

The thing is that nothing in the article linked Morgan Freeman's accident to Heath Ledger's death. So it wasn't like it's the media - or at least this particular source - that is trying to make out the jinx...

Christian Bale was arrested? Really? Wow, i am so not up-to-date with this stuff...

Hi girl! How're you doing?

Yeah but that was ages ago. A lot of drama occured around the time of the Dark Knight premiere.

Oh right... hmm yeah i didn't know that.

BTW i know you're probably not in the Gossip Girl fandom but I checked out this discussion community right? And there's this couple, Chuck/Blair, it's my favourite canon ship on the show but the discussion was "who should apologize" and I'm AMAZED how many people (whom i assume most are girls) thought Blair was in the wrong because she asked Chuck to tell her that he loved her after he ABANDONS her on their vacation together to sleep with another women... i mean sure, Chuck is a bastard womenizer, and Blair knows that, she's a bitch too, they're equally manipulative which makes them perfect for each other but as much as I LOVE Chuck, I'm amazed at how many women would side with him instead of her and saying stuff like Blair shouldn't expect Chuck to change immediately... which I didn't think she did at all, Chuck was the one who thought he wanted Blair back and tried to change on his own to get her back, Blair had accepted that he was that way and dumped him because he wasn't the kind of guy she could see herself having a happily ever after with, Chuck wanted her back, tried to change then freaked out at the last minute and ditched her. He comes crawling back and she asked him for one thing, "3 words, 8 letters", I didn't think she was asking him to change, she was asking for assurance! And he couldn't do it, so she left with another guy.And people are like Blair's demanding! WTF? I mean, Chuck is my favourite character on the show, i love him to bits, he's my reason for watching even but for god's sakes, is there no female solidarity left in the world? Or at least the world of fandom?

Sorry for the rant. I know you probably don't watch the show but this is one of the few places i feel safe ranting about the injustice of the treatment of female characters.
