Re: Characterization of the Knight - Nolan and Bale's Bruce Wayne/Batman - Part 2
Yeah. I think he was happiest (or maybe most hopeful is the better word like what you said) during the time he came back to Gotham in BB and was preparing to be Batman. He had full of ideas back then and I don't think he anticipated the tragedies that will arise from him being Batman. He knew it wasn't going to be easy but I don't think he fully expected all the tragedies that will happen to him in TDK and TDKR.
