Both would die, but the Joker would win. Hannibal would kill the Joker early on in the fight, and would prepare him as a meal.
However, Joker spent the day leading up to the fight ingesting enough “Joker Venom,” which he’s built up an immunity to over the years, so his body was practically saturated with the stuff.
Three bites into the meal, Hannibal starts to succumb to the poison, and he suffocates laughing at the Joker’s final joke.
I know a lot of people who watched the Dark Knight Rises and critiqued it by saying “everyone in Gotham is just going to die of radiation poisoning from the fallout of the nuclear bomb that detonated right outside the city”
Except the bomb in the movie was a fusion bomb, and fusion bombs only leave fallout radiation because they use a fission reaction to achieve the levels of heat necessary to create a fusion reaction
And the movie’s bomb was powered by Bruce Wayne’s fusion reactor, which is very explicitly described thusly: “No radiation, no fossil fuels. Free, clean energy for an entire city.”
So while it sounds like they’ve just noticed a glaring plothole, what they’re actually saying is “I wasn’t super duper paying attention during the movie but the screenwriters stepped outside of my very limited understanding of nuclear reactions and I assume that means they wrote the movie poorly.”
Watched “Son of Batman” last night!
