Hearing he exists in BB is fantastic....but hearing he still exists in TDKR is terrible?
In BB we had hopes for a sequel with the Joker. In TDKR we will know that Heath is dead, that this is the last movie, etc. I think it would be too much of a bittersweet sad ending to have the Joker mentioned and would suck part of the impact away from Batman's victory in this final film.
