Well I didn't saw it hinted towards it, because I already saw that confrontation. Still, we saw that in TDK.For example, I don't think a montage of various Batman villains being taken down in that time span would have been worthy. Many of the rogues in the gallery deserve more screentime than just that. My point being is that the feeling would have been similar to TDK, not because the villians are similar, but the format is.

That's seems just a little arbitrarly, because most of us know that the Joker doesn't have a past per se. Those little tidbits helped to strenghtend that notion and were true to the character. Also, we are talking about characters, not events. On a greater canvas like films, I for one would have wanted to see more rogues on the loose. But as I said, the feeling would be similar, and the storytelling would be rehashing the format. Would they be great movies? Of course! But were they necessary to tell the story? Perhaps not.


A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
