Re: How much did Ledgers death change the ending of DK?
But Magneto did take affairs into his own hand and ordered Stryker's son to wipe out all of humanity right at the climax's head. I envision the Joker getting what he perceives as the last laugh at the end as well. And what would entail as that to the Joker? What would amuse him? I could see him somehow telling the Gotham denizens they are very soon disintegrating by a fusion bomb. The cloud of despair in their hearts will content the Joker, as he himself happily prepares for death.
And this is a personal fantasy, but how awesome would it have been to see the Joker kill Bane, instead of Selina Kyle?
Alan Moore on comics:
They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
