Letterman To Spoil Dark Knight Rises Tonight? – UPDATED

As several of you have told me in the last hour or so, David Letterman spoiled the ending of The Dark Knight Rises during the recording of tonight’s episode.

His comments apparently came during his interview with Anne Hathaway, which may make it harder for them to be edited out before broadcast. There’s always a way.

Cynically, this could all be framed as perfect marketing for both Letterman and the movie. I’m not sure about that, though. I expect he just had a line of questioning he wanted to pursue.

If I can, I’m going to tune in and see what goes down. Please no spoilers in the forum, though. Your peers are likely to not want to know.

UPDATE: I’ve just seen the show as it aired here in San Diego, and David Letterman said something that, if it is a real spoiler, will cause a heck of a lot of fuss.

There was also a clip from the film and I think you can look forward to seeing that on the web shortly too.
