Default Re: Characterization of the Knight - Nolan and Bale's Bruce Wayne/Batman - Part 2

That's the part that really gets me. Bruce (and likely Selina) don't know how to live a normal life. They've never experienced one.

But they're taking the plunge anyway and embarking on that adventure - together.

I dunno, that just gets me right in the feels because I'm getting married soon and that's what I imagine marriage to be like.
