Heath Ledger died in January 2008 in his Manhattan apartment before The Dark Knight was released later that year in July. The tragic death was caused by combining the consumption of prescribed medication (anxiety, insomnia, pain, and the common cold) with alcohol. 

Some debated that the film should not be shown to the public out of respect, but as Christian Bale put it, “This was not his private work, he did this and it was meant to be seen. It would be insulting not to release the film.”
