Re: The Joker - What would you do now?
Could go either way. He was a major character in the last film and in general, representing Batman's opposite and worst enemy, so there could be a recast (Paul Bettany looks close enough and could make the character his own while still a continuation; Michael Pitt has the looks but I don't know about acting skills). Or they could go in more of a new direction. It depends a bit on how long after TDK the third story takes place.
