It was Nolan's call, but I won't pretend to understand his reasoning, let alone agree with it.
Yeah they should've mentioned the Joker at least once. I mean I get that the idea is that "We have bigger problems than the Joker" as TDKR starts off, I also get why they felt like they needed to move away from the status quo of superheroes and supervillains that was a staple of the last film, but since they mentioned almost everyone else, the Joker should've been given that nudge.

Maybe they respected the character/performance too much that a passing mention looked bad on paper?


THE JUSTICE BULLETIN published some of my thematic analysis on the symbolism in Nolan's superhero saga.
I call it Heroic Archetypes. You can read the parts on Batman Begins in the following links:
