I have been pleased with this series overall but Snyders next arc takes place after and the series will be spoiled. That fact has given me trepidation about continuing on given the fact that this will be much cheaper to read in trade.
This could work in a scenario where the Joker confronts Bruce Wayne rather than Batman. Bruce forced to make a life or death decision, preferably one that any Gothamite could find themselves in. No Bat suit no gadgets just the risk of inaction against action with innocent life or lives at stake.
Good portrayal by Hardy, I wood say at least Nolan captured the core of the character. No matter who was cast in the role they had a tough act to follow after Ledgers Joker and being in one of the most hyped films of all time. There was always going to be a strong negative reaction on the Internet. I personally rank Rises as the second best ending to a trilogy after The Good The Bad and The Ugly.
