However, Riddler reveals this was his plan all the time. His entire goal was to get Joker to laugh. But he’s failed. Joker isn’t laughing as Riddler explains everything he did including killing Kite-Man’s family was to get Joker to laugh.

Batman having enough of Riddler’s ranting, picks up a knife, tells Riddler, “Hell Yeah,” and then thrusts the knife forward. However, Joker intervenes putting out his hand to stop the blade. The blade pierces Joker’s hand whose maniacal response is, “Now that…that’s funny!”
