Kellvin Chavez of LatinoReview.com has a scoop on the Joker’s first scene in The Dark Knight, apparently from having “dinner with an executive high up on the Warner Bros. food chain.”
According to Chavez and his anonymous source, Joker will rob the bank holding all the Gotham City underworld types’ money, holding the money “for ransom”. Joker tells all the crooks that if they help him take down Batman, he’ll give the money back. If they refuse, he’ll burn the money. This is where Joker gets his army to go against Batman.
