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 defeated your uncle Victarion and his Iron Fleet off Fair Isle, the first time your father crowned himself. I held Storm's End against the power of the Reach for a year, and took Dragonstone from the Targaryens. I smashed Mance Rayder at the Wall, though he had twenty times my numbers. Tell me, turncloak, what battles has the Bastard of Bolton ever won that I should fear him?" - Stannis Baratheon
