Man please the whole purpose of that arc is Batman in itself it's something that has thematically happened in the comics as well. Psychology has become a big aspect of the mythos. Plus once again this is a film it's supposed to cater to a wider audience with different sensibilities than just comic fans and this is coming from a lifelong comics fan. In a film you need to have a hook and themes to engage the viewer beyond just the obvious.

Pull list: Saga, Thief of Thieves, The Manhattan Projects, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Harbinger, X-O Manowar, Archer & Armstrong, Shadowman, Green Lantern, Red Lanterns, Justice League 3000, Action Comics, Superman/Wonder Woman, Batman & Robin, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Red Hood & The Outlaws, Swamp Thing, All-Star Western, Earth 2, Daredevil, All-New X-Men
