What If Heath Ledger Didn’t Die?
My question is referring to the last Batman movie. Think carefully about this. If Ledger didn’t die, would he have been in the last movie. Would they have taken the approach the comics and TV show goes, where he breaks out and he and Batman fight?
More importantly, would Bane be in the movie? I don’t think so. I think this movie was made with Bane for the sole reason that Ledger died. If the Joker and Bane were in the movie, then Bane would’ve killed the Joker in the end.
They couldn’t co-exist as villains. They had completely different plans. Bane was a suicide bomber in the end. He brought a nuke into Gotham and was going to blow it up with him in it. The Joker wasn’t about sacrifice, especially himself. He inflicted fear and destruction in The Dark Knight, but never did he try to kill himself. Or do something crazy that he would’ve gotten killed.
In the final scene, when Batman through him off the building, The Joker was laughing all the way down. Not because he was crazy, because he knew Batman was going to save him. Even after everything The Joker did.
There was no way they could’ve co-existed. Anyone who would think that would be crazy. Not saying it’s not possible they could’ve been in the movie, I’m saying that they wouldn’t have worked together. If anything, they would be enemies and I think The Joker would’ve ended up helping Batman.
