Benedict Cumberbatch was awesome!
He was, but he didn't have enough time to flesh out the character and to show the audience how dangerous he really is. I think they did this a lot better in The Dark Night. The Joker came across as truly menacing, while nuKhan didn't even begin to show his potential. Wasted opportunity!
I think this movie just screams for an extended cut!
I would love an extended cut, but I don't agree at all with what you said. Not to badmouth Heath Ledger's performance, or anything, but seriously, The Dark Knight is, imo, totally overrated, and the Joker right along with it. His motivation is pretty sketchy, and in no way is he fleshed out more than Harrison/Khan. That, I believe, is a matter of perspective.
