Re: Bane or the Joker?
^^ I fully concur.
And to back that up, here's a quote from Nolan himself on Bane:
"Bane is absolute...he just knows exactly what it is he's doing. He's completely convinced of the rightness of it in a completely fanatical way."
It's at around 7:00 in this interview with Nolan on The Treatment. A great interview as always.
