Joker will always be Batman's mortal enemy. Only not really, cause they won't actually kill each other ('cept in Batman 89). They're locked in perpetual battle. That's why the, "You and I are destined to do this forever" line always worked for me without any expectation of The Joker returning in a sequel to TDK. It's almost metaphysical. Like somewhere, somehow, on some other plane or alternate universe...they'll be at it again, because they're just two larger than life concepts battling it out. They can't escape each other.
And as we all know, indeed we will one day see them facing off on the big screen again.
