If it is done well,it could look good(Like in TSSM)
His death was normal in TSSM, though.
There wasn't any extra added to that there.
So what's your point?
Either way, his death shouldn't be trifled with. There's no good reason, planned or not, for them to tie his death to some source outside of a random thug.
Hell, I think Batman 89 is a fantastic film, but I would be lying if I said I didn't think Joker being Thomas and Martha's Killer was stupid.
