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.
