Re: Stuff you like to believe happened in Nolan's series
I like to think that Joker was taken into federal custody after TDK. It makes more sense than him being the only patient in Arkham. I like to think Gotham is a level of Limbo and all the characters are facets of Cobb's personality at different stages in his life.
"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
