At least with Loki he (like the Joker) had a reason to be caught.
But really it's pretty sad that you see such an innovative idea, and immediately some big movies start copying it.
So you're implying that TDK was the first movie to have the villain let himself be captured? Do me a favour lol
Hell Return of the Jedi did it but with the hero instead of the villain. Luke let himself be captured so he could try to persuade his father and confront the Emperor himself.
