I dont think he is dead. I think there was an instance in the comics when he was reported dead and actually got transferred to Arkham Asylum for psych treatment and stuff like that..
Even if Nolan may not be following this plotline, I still think he's not dead.. Severely injured definitely, but dead? No.
I hope he comes back in the 3rd part. Cos he was too good a villain to be killed off so tamely.. In fact, this was my only regret after watching The Dark Knight.
And yeah, did anyone notice the irony that the villain who is still alive [Joker] at the end of the movie has expired, while the villain who is/might be dead is alive? Pretty fucked up, huh? Fate can be a bitch sometimes...

Yeah, I would regret that if I really thought he was dead.
also, someone said Montoya could compromise him since she knows...but I think she feels too guilty to go against Gordon's wishes like that at this point.
I am seeing this in two hours and I am geeking out so fucking hard I can't even believe it.
I don't know that I've been this excited for a movie since the first X-Men, or possibly Episode 1.
More to it, I haven't heard anything to suggest that this won't more or less meet my high expectation that this be the best comic book movie ever.
Well, to be fair, it is drastically different from the other contenders for "best comic book movie," so I wouldn't say that for sure. It was realy, really good, though.
i give this movie 5 out of 5.
does it have flaws? of course.
but no movie is perfect.

well, the coin that landed next to Dent had the good side face up, possibly hinting that he is alive if anything. So they could be just hiding him away. But I hope they wouldn't make him return.
The Joker...could be alive, he could be dead. They left that up for interpretation. He's hanging there, slowly going down, and then he's lowered in front of a Swat team with their guns drawn. As far as we know, they may have gunned him down there or they may have captured him. It could swing either way
Great movie, loved it, plan on seeing it again tomorrow
I'll probably watch it again on Saturday, and next week on Tuesday.
After seeing this movie, I'm leftr wondering how do you top that? The Riddler? Catwoman? Who can they bring in for the next film that'll be better than what we just recieved?
"My former associate has a thing for bats? You took up a pipe to quit smoking cigarettes? Wait, howzabout - holy mistaken identity!"
Blown away doesn't even begin to describe how I feel right now...
I like watching the internet eat their words; can't wait for monday when we get the final numbers... and I can look back at the "Box Office Predictions" thread. Hopefully it'll be like looking back at the first few pages of this thread.
