Batman Begins. Bruce Wayne was starting up as Batman, so we were introduced to the suit and what it does, the cape and what it does and the Batmobile and what it was originally for.. They can't just go. "Ok, Bruce Wayne flies back to Gotham. He instantly gets his suit and Batmobile. Now he can go fight crime". Hell, they even showed him making the little Batman symbols he throws..
Yes, Batman's origin has been told plenty of times over seventy years. This is the first time anyone has felt the need to explain the Batmobile.
There is no Marvel/DC rivalry. Most of the great comic creators worked for both; Jack Kirby, Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Walt Simonsen, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, John Byrne, Steve Englehart, Mark Waid...even Stan Lee.
