Re: How much did Ledgers death change the ending of DK?
I agree. The idea of Joker doing it is just a cool fanboy moment, but it doesn't make much sense in context. Also, what happens once Joker vanishes? That's too obvious of a setup for another movie where Blake goes at him. Bruce wouldn't retire knowing that Joker is back on the streets either.
Another reason why us fanboys shouldn't write the script.
