Different franchise. One thing Nolan has been adamant about is that his movies have been a reset of the original batman franchise. He attempted to make thee movies as if the Keaton/Nicholson thing never happened or any of the other spin-offs/remakes that have been done since.
On the contrary, this next movie will be an extension of the current universe that Nolan has created, so how the Joker is portrayed is much different than comparing him to a whole different take 22 years ago.
