He also said in Rises everything was much more organic , and every spectacle we see was according to what the felt the story needed (and not the other way around)

About this i brought up , and the whole TDKR looked like a bunch of set pieces thought beforehand , and a narrative to glue them...its funny how sometimes perception is completely distorted from reality.

From the book

In scripting the film , Nolan and his co-writers didn't invent action sequences for their own sake ; rather , the action grew , organically , out of the story. "In Putting together the story for Begins " , said C.Nolan , "and then moving on to TDK , David and I had plotted out exactly how many action beats we would need , where they would be in the film , and so forth. When we came to TDKR , it was very important to me that we not engage in that process at all. It had worked very well for us in the first two films, but for this one , I wanted to throw that away and just write the story that needed to be there for the characters-and then we would create whatever action arose from that story naturally.

"The danger of going into a third action film is that you inflate the action components as a way to meet audience expectations. Most third films are very disappointing to people exactly for that reason. So i wanted to go with the characters and their stories , first and trust the action would arouse out of that approach.

"We absoluted resisted the idea of making TDKR bigger just because it was a thrid movie " affirmed David Goyer. We didnt go into it saying that we were going to make an epic war movie , and then develop the story from that idea. It was decidedly the opposite of that. In fact , again , the first thing that we came up with was the ending , which was very personal , and we wrote the beginning that also had Bruce Wayne in a very personal place. That's what we had when we started. It wasn't until a month or two into the writing process that things got very big and destructive in the middle.
