Like how some Gothamites don't trust anyone or have gone crazy ( as the Joker himself said in TDK)
Remember in TDK, they talk about the Arkham psychos Joker has hired.
At the end of BB, Gordon is worried about the ex Arkham inmates who were still out there.
But in TDK, there was no mention of the LOS or RAG ( correct me if Im wrong)
Back to TDKR, they could also bring up the fact that all mob is locked up or killed
Yes I was actually thinking about this. I mean, I really
hope there will be some mention of the Joker, but if Ras Al Gul wasn't brought up in TDK then there's a chance the Joker won't be in this one. But, as others have said, because Harvey will be spoken about in TDKR then maybe the Joker will.
