Re: A theory about an alternate TDKR with the Joker
....How would the GA and yourselves have reacted if Nolan had Bane use Arkham as the Pit for the people he wanted tortured? Only, instead of nameless nobodies (Joker excluded), you'd see low-tier freaks like Croc, Zazz, and anyone else you care to name. We wouldn't have seen most of them on-screen prior to TDKR, so I don't know if critics would call it pointless or what.
"I never asked for this crown. Gold is cold and heavy on the head, but so long as I am the king, I have a duty … If I must sacrifice one child to the flames to save a million from the dark … Sacrifice … is never easy, Davos. Or it is no true sacrifice." - Stannis Baratheon
