Default Re: The Joker sized elephant in the room

While I don't know how The Joker will be handled in TDKR, I'm fairly certain this film will link to the previous films rather blatantly. The press says Ra's is back in some form, Scarecrow is rumored to be back, Bane rips up Dent's photo, and Nolan has said no to The Joker appearing in the new film because it makes him uncomfortable. But a reference, who knows.

Quote:
“Without getting into specifics, the key thing that makes the third film a great possibility for us is that we want to finish our story.” “And in viewing it as the finishing of a story rather than infinitely blowing up the balloon and expanding the story... I'm very excited about the end of the film, the conclusion, and what we’ve done with the characters. My brother has come up with some pretty exciting stuff. Unlike the comics, these things don’t go on forever in film and viewing it as a story with an end is useful. Viewing it as an ending, that sets you very much on the right track about the appropriate conclusion and the essence of what tale we're telling.”
-Chris Nolan

Quote:
“The title of the new film is ‘The Dark Knight Rises‘ and we will be shooting and exhibiting the film in 2-D.” “We want the look and feel of the film to be faithful to what has come before in the first two films.” “There was a large canvas and operatic sweep to ‘The Dark Knight’ and we want to make a film that will carry on with that look and feel.” “There’s an intimacy at times [with spatial illusion of the 3-D effect] and we didn’t want to lose scale…. Our ambition for the third movie is to complete a story that has begun.” “This is not starting over, this is not rebooting. We’re finishing something, and keeping a consistency with what’s come before has real value.”
-Chris Nolan

Quote:
“I read the script 2 weeks ago, and he’s done it. Plain and simple — he’s done it. It’s a phenomenal script. He’s still in the process of cutting it back because it’s a very long script right now, but it’s really phenomenal. And he actually had me go back and wanted me to watch, in IMAX, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight again. When I watched those I had read the script for The Dark Knight Rises and was like, ‘dude, it is a perfect trilogy.’ I think that was his intent, to work off those two pictures — and they are very different pictures. And it’s funny, we all had different opinions about which picture we like better.”
-Wally Pfister

Quote:
"I haven't seen the script yet." "I know the story and it's a great story. You look at 'The Dark Knight' and you go, 'How's he going to top it?' But I think he has." "The scope of it and also the way he brings it back to 'Batman Begins,' and really what Bruce Wayne discovers about himself, what he learns about himself at the end of this one [will top off the trilogy]."
-Gary Oldman

Quote:
"He sort of brings it back… he brings it around [to Batman Begins]."
-Gary Oldman

Just some of the quotes I've compiled on the matter.
