I don't know. They never mention Arkham at all, do they? I think they only mention Blackgate. Maybe if The Joker was freed, he was out plotting his next big heist.

Joker is more than just a band robber. In the comics he filled entire grave yards. 

 

Just watched Batman: The Dark Knight Returns. Told in 2 parts but that was more story in 2 and a half hours than in BVS Ultimate edition's 3 hours.

I'm quite aware of who and what The Joker is. I've been a fan since I was five. "Next big heist" does not limit it to robbing banks.

According the the TDKR novelization, Joker was in Arkham. The patients there were not freed by bane. Only regular prisoners in regular prison were.

so for those whole 8 years, including the 5-month long events of TDKR and the end of the Nolanverse, Joker is just sitting in Arkham twiddling his thumbs the whole time. 

Now that I think of it, I kinda wish they at least hinted in TDKR that others would use the imagery of the joker, just like how in TDK we saw others using the imagery of batman. Plus, it's suggested at the very end that gordon-levitt would also adopt the imagery of batman. Doing something similar with joker-related imagery woulda tied back with the line "I think you and I are destined to do this forever." Which also fits with how there's been so many incarnations of these characters, with seemingly plenty more to come. So doing something like that woulda been nice and meta.

I bet the bomb was written because The Joker had to be written out. Bane takes over Gotham, lets the city destroy itself, Batman comes back to save the city, Bane goes to Arkham and releases The Joker. The Joker kills a whole bunch of people forcing Batman to kill him.  Batman defeats Bane, fakes his own death and the people of Gotham are inspired to do good again.

I think the writer, David Goyer, said that if ledger were still alive, his role in the third one would've been a Hannibal Lecter-type of role, where he's in jail the whole time and batman comes to visit him to try to get him to provide information that could possibly help him defeat whoever the new villain would've been. Then at the end, joker has an epic breaking-out-of-jail scene.

I remember reading that. What could have been.

Affleck is apparently pretty apathetic about continuing to play Batman. And his replacement director just walked too.

DC's unstable movie universe is collapsing.

I hope Affleck does at least one solo Batman movie. He wasn't bad.

I ordered Batman V Superman and Suicide Squad on blu-ray so I'll be re-watching them soon and see how my opinion changes, if at all.

New reports are saying that Jennifer Garner is now finalizing her divorce from affleck. Poor dude's life is falling apart.

also, according to the guy from Collider who broke the story on affleck wanting to quit batman altogether, apparently the studio no longer wants him playing batman either. The theory is that an announcement will be made soon claiming that affleck still loves the role, but then after justice league finishes its theatrical run in early 2018, a different announcement will be made saying that he's done.
