Great TDK article
The director wasnt interested in plumbing the murky origins of the Joker himself - the Clown Prince is more a Loki-like force of chaos. Hes like the shark in Jaws, Nolan explains. The Joker cuts through the film, hes incredibly important, but hes not a guy with a backstory. Hes a wild card.
Im surprised theyre not giving the Joker a back story, but the performance might work better that way. After all, evil is more terrifying when you cant explain it.
