Re: Lack of impact in Batmanīs appearence scenes
I actually think the relative lack of screentime helped the character in a way. All of Batman's scenes were great and had a certain impact because he wasn't around as much. It helps with the mythic aura Batman had, which plays with the legend theme that comes to full fruition in the film.
Fiery the angels fell
Deep thunder rolled about their shores
Burning with the fires of orc
