There's a very clinical way Bane goes about things in TDKR. He didn't even tolerate his own goons bringing Gordon down into the sewers, prematurely spoiling his plan somewhat. Rather quickly, he would have the same amount of disdain for the Joker as Batman himself. And he would look to eliminate him completely, sooner than later...
