I think all Nolan said was that Heath created a character that "you'd want to see 10 more movies about", but that's a bit of hyperbole so it's tough to say exactly where he stood on it. Goyer said something to the same effect, that it would have been a "no brainer" if Heath had lived.
I still don't believe Joker was intended to be the main villain in a sequel after TDK became what it was. A memorable cameo would have been the best option.
