Though the fate of the Joker is never revealed in the film, the novelization does mention his whereabouts in passing: he is the lone resident of the newly-rebuilt Arkham Asylum, held in solitary confinement and thus has no one to "play with" as ultimate punishment for his crimes.

Out of respect for Heath Ledger, the Joker is never once mentioned for the whole film.

brawljeff's rating:

After The Dark Knight was released, Aaron Eckhart expressed interest in returning as Harvey "Two-Face" Dent. Christopher Nolan stated that Dent was definitely dead, and that his death would leave lasting repercussions across Gotham.

Reunites Inception stars Tom Hardy, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Michael Caine, Marion Cotillard, and Cillian Murphy.
brawljeff's rating:
Christopher Nolan said that this film's theme deals with "Pain". For Batman Begins, it was on "Fear", while The Dark Knight deals on "Chaos".
brawljeff's rating:

The original story treatment by David S. Goyer was to have Two-Face as the principal antagonist for the film. Initially, at the end of The Dark Knight, the Joker would have scarred Harvey Dent at a courtroom trial, setting up the third film. Dent's death and fall was put in at the end of the second film instead to set up the aftermath that follows.
brawljeff's rating:

In the film there are a total of four Oscar winners: Christian Bale, Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Marion Cotillard, and four Oscar nominees: Anne Hathaway, Gary Oldman, Tom Conti, Liam Neeson.

When Nolan was threatning not to direct the 3rd movie because '' Heath Ledger dead was affecting him'', Zack Snyder was supposed to fill in.
Also, don't forget that the role of the riddler was linked to every actor in the planet !! héhéhhéhéhéé

I, too, think these films were overrated but they were quite good. It baffles me, though, why Hollywood cannot simply take the source material and be true to it - instead of rewriting and changing characters, names, appearances, etc...to suit themselves.

Still, neat list. I do love trivia! :)
