We're sorry to disappoint any of the people in hopes for a director's cut of "The Dark Knight," because it is most likely NOT going to happen. This is based on reading the script that has been floating around online the last week. While, it isn't a carbon copy of what happened in the film excatly, it's close and there really are only one or two small parts that are in the script that aren't in the movie. One of those parts is Bruce Wayne jumping out of the small air plane into a body of water in Hong Kong. That is really all it is. The next scene is what happens to Heath Ledger's Joker after 'Batman' and Rachel take a dive out of the penthouse window. The Joker and his thugs get into a car and drive away while the Joker says how he is going to eventually get Aaron Eckhart's character because he is a man of his word [ed. ah, we were wondering what the hell happened there].
Other than multiple differences in the Joker's quips, a few other lines were changed or removed, for example, the character of Reese talks about his family and kids in the original script, but they were not mentioned in the final product. Also, Gordon's wife is given some cheesy dialogue to say to 'Batman' after she thinks her husband is dead. It was removed for good reason. But as you can tell all of this is minimal changes at best. The big chase scene in the middle of the film is taken directly from the script and there is an unintentionally funny description of the driver, who is Gordon, but we don't know it because he is wearing a mask. The script describes him: "The Driver is all business."
