The trailer's style somewhat vaguely reminded me of Brian Azzarello's Joker comic book.

Might be a weird statement to make but this movie looks good, but not really as a Joker movie?

The thing with The Dark Knight is that at that time Nolan (and his brother and Goyer) really like having characters give big speeches about what they themselves represent, what each other represents, what other people in their lives represent, what certain ideas represent; it can get a little like watching a film with the optional extra to watch a film studies lecture about the film turned on. So when yet another character gives such a speech it’s hard not to take it at face value. But maybe that’s the film’s masterstroke?

Presumably there would have also been some kind of conclusion or twist with the character had Ledger lived to make the third film.

Its really been the nature of a lot of Nolan's films since then hasn't it? they tend to state there ideas very openly, you could argue I spose the price to be paid for working with massive blockbuster budgets.
