This just doesnt make sense at all when considering the character and the films before.
I understand Batman going into hiding in the context of the story and the events of TDK.
Bruce wouldve and shouldve still been active in watching over his city.
He has an advanced computer in a working batcave.
It wouldve been so much better that he became a recluse in the cave.
Obsessively keeping watch on his city and Being similar to "oracle" and helping Gordon keep the streets clean as his silent helper.
You could still have Alfred imploring him to get out and find a life.
"Your'e not Batman anymore".
All this still wouldve worked and it wouldve been more true to the character.
He couldve, wouldve and shouldve still been in decent shape. although out of form. Still keep the battered body scene somewhat. showing the toll being Batman took on his body.
My problem with the film is it couldve been better if certain changes were made to the story and it was longer to further elaborate 2nd and 3rd acts.
Nolan bit off a bit more than he could chew in this film.
It was good. It couldve been great.
What would he have to watch over? People forgetting to bring back books in the library? There was nothing to watch over.
