This is where we differ. I cannot imagine a complete Batman story without the Joker being in there somewhere. It's like Jonah Nolan and his insistence to put Catwoman into TDKR, as he felt he could not imagine Batman's story without the most important female in Batman's world.

Shouldn't Nolan's rep be solely on Nolan's rep and not just because of Joker, though?
I never said the Joker, I said The Dark Knight. The movie itself really launched Nolan into fame, and it made audiences and comic book fans wet themselves.

Some people who saw it had never even seen Begins and still loved it. The fact that TDKR was a sequel to one of the most popular and successful movies of all time was enough of an attraction and publicity for it.
