Subj: Some questions about The Dark Knight (the movie)
Posted: Wed Jul 30, 2008 at 08:02:01 pm EDT (Viewed 2 times)

First off, what happens to the Joker? We see him getting arrested, but he had no problem escaping from jail earlier and he even tells Batman that they'll continue fighting until one of them kills the other. I think it'd be a terrible idea to have a new actor play him in the sequel, not to mention disrespectful to Heath Ledger's memory, so why does the movie imply that he'll be back?

Also, is Harvey Dent supposed to be dead, or will he be returning too? The fall he took didn't seem that bad, and Batman suffered no injuries at all from it. If he did die, it'd mean Batman finally killed someone, which completely goes against the theme of both movies. But if he didn't, how can Gordon possibly cover up his crimes if he's still alive and clearly insane?

(I don't see what role he could have in a sequel anyway, he already confronted all the people he wanted revenge on and it'd be lame to bring him back as a random criminal like they did with the Scarecrow.)

Also, Gordon says that Dent killed five people, but I only recall him shooting the old man and the limo driver. I guess Maroni could've died in the crash, but it doesn't seem likely if Dent could survive it with half his skin gone. And who was that old man anyway, what role did he have in Rachel's death?

Finally, what was up with that scene where Batman and Rachel fall from a skyscraper onto a cab and get up just fine? Did I miss something where Batman did something to slow his fall, or did he somehow survive a 50+ story fall just by being Batman?
