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.

I enjoy comic book adaptations but I'm a comic book fan first and foremost. Not a comic book movie fan.

Pull list: Saga, Thief of Thieves, TMNT, Action Comics, Sensation Comics, Batgirl, Grayson, Gotham Academy, Batman '66, Aquaman, The Flash, Green Lantern, GL: Lost Army, E2: Society, Section 8, Green Arrow, Starfire, Black Canary, Dr. Fate, Martian Manhunter, Omega Men, Cyborg, JL, JLA, JLU, JL 3K1, Bat-Mite, Bizarro, X-O Manowar, Rai, Ivar Timewalker, Ninjak, Daredevil, All-New X-Men
