So… What Happened To The Joker?

Well, most of us have seen The Dark Knight Rises but fear not, I will not spoil anything here just in case there’s a few stragglers that haven’t seen it yet. After the tragic death of Heath Ledger, we all wondered how The Joker’s absence from Gotham would be handled by Nolan. As it happens, it wasn’t. He isn’t mentioned in any way in the movie as a mark of respect for the late actor.

Would it really have been disrespectful to at least mention where The Joker was, just in passing? I don’t think so, but Lord Nolan knows best. I respect his decision as the film was an absolute triumph, despite once again being sadly surrounded by tragedy.

Anyway, I’m not sure if this is fan art or some early promo for the film, but it looks like The Joker was in Arkham all along. You are sadly missed Heath and may you rest in peace.
