Speaking of Iago, and risking a hefty tangent, does anybody know if there's been 
any discussion about his echoes in the character of the Joker in the new Batman 
movie?

Now that you're done laughing, I'll just offer this: the writers behind this 
Joker seem to be both familiar with Auden's essay and to have designed the 
character as an over determined, ultimately motiveless malignity.

Does this sound plausible to anybody else? In all of the discussion over the new 
movie, I haven't heard anybody present it yet.
