I hope that sheds a little light. Personally, I wasn't a heavy reader of Batman comics and the ones I have read were back when I was in elementary/junior high. However, I've always loved Bane as a villian.
Thanks. The 'South America prison' thing rings a bell. I did watch TAS every now and again and that's probably where I heard it before.

Edward Norton is a great actor and would fit in well in the series . . . BUT, he's now involved with the Hulk (and Avengers) series, so it's unlikely he'll be heavily involved with this franchise.
And Lord Simen, I see where you are coming from but recasting the Joker would fucking suck especially in the same trilogy.

I WASNT one of those people saying Jack couldnt be topped. I thought Heath was a brillant choice. With that said, I just think they should somehow make a storyline that the Joker is locked away for good and will never be seen again.
And get a different villian entirely.
You're right, it wouldn't be the same now that we've seen Ledger's awesome and incredible portrayal. If Nolan's original plan was to continue a Batman vs. Joker storyline, I do hope he'll go a different route. But if that wasn't the original plan, and there was only a plan for a bit part, or cameo, then I hope they do go ahead . . . for the sake of the awesome and incredible storyline that Nolan (and Goyer) has come up with.
