Because some concepts are just plain silly when you think about it from a non comic fan perspective. The film makers are not catering to us, they have to cater for everyone, and in that case changes are inevitable. You can't really take the characters at face value any more and say 'that's just how it is', not in a post BB/TDK and IM world.
