^That actually would have been a great character moment. It makes sense in terms of Bane's character. He wants to create chaos, to be sure--but as a means to an end, not an end in itself. His intention is to be the pupetmaster controlling and channeling the chaos. The Joker's desire for chaos as an end in itself, solely for amusement, would seriously derail Bane's plans.

After all...as the Clown Prince himself noted, he specializes in taking "plans" and turning them on themselves....
