You're right to a certain extent, but just imagine Bale's Bruce and Heath's Joker sharing a prison cell. That would have given TDKR an entirely different kind of psychological depth. It wouldn't just be about the villain helping out the hero but rather the hero learning something existential about himself from his arch-nemesis on a very personal level.
Think of the all the possible scenarios that could have played out from this.
Brilliant. If Joker had been in the film, I could TOTALLY see something like this happening.
