Re: All Things Superman and Batman: An Open Discussion - - Part 11
It can be both. You hear this "well I don't know unless the plot calls for it" talk on every single superhero movie; it's just a way for those in the know to avoid giving away spoilers for upcoming films. The second that the card comes up, it's clear that the next villain of the batman series has to be Joker, regardless of whether they knew the second movie was assured or not. It was an allusion to upcoming events, plain and simple. Moving on.
