I thought this was standard knowledge among Batman fans, but hey, you learn something every day right?

That he was always steps ahead of Batman?

From Riddler's first comic appearance:


Yes very much. Especially when it comes to motives.
Well you're saying the Joker should always be a step ahead of Batman. That sounds like a match of wits to me.

"The physical component of what Bruce Wayne does as Batman is of extraordinary importance, and we had not truly challenged that in the first two films.

"I really wanted to see Batman meet his match physically, as well as intellectually. Bane is raw strength with a fanatical devotion to duty, and that combination makes him unstoppable."
Studio execs had strongly suggested that the Riddler be the film's primary villain but filmmakers felt the character too derivative. The filmmakers ultimately decided to use Bane as they felt he was strikingly different than the Joker from the previous movie.

There's also a Nolan quote about it somewhere... wish I could find it.

I never said that's what he's all about did I? I said we always know what his schemes are about because he tells us. Meaning he always has a point and a motive.
Ok. I thought he just does them because he is Joker. That his crimes make sense to him and him alone. Which kind of negates us being able to comprehend them.
