Default Re: Am I the only one that feels like TDKR prevents Nolan's trilogy from being perfec

While BB and TDK were also inspired by many Batman stories and had a couple of scenes here and there that you can consider straight from a Batman comic, the movies were their own stories at the end of the day. TDKR is without a doubt the movie with the most story influence from the comics out of the trilogy and I would say that about half or more of the plot in the film is plot from the comics. This isn't really a bad thing but I think it shows that Nolan either could not come up with a story for the third movie (once again, he couldn't use the one he originally had in mind because he didn't want to recast the Joker), lost the passion to come up with a complete solid story due to Ledger's death, or both.
I think you should brush up on your Batman mythos, there's WAY more from the comics in BB and TDK than you've listed here. This might help:




They are pretty even in terms of ideas used from the comics.

I've never been able to understand this idea that Nolan planned on using the Joker again. There's no real evidence to support that idea. One line from Goyer about his story doesn't really prove anything. I also remember reading some where that Nolan did everything he wanted to do with Joker in TDK.

You're right when it comes to the overall story of TDK being influenced by the comics but I was specifically talking about individual scenes. TDKR has more individual scenes that mirror individual scenes in the comics than BB and TDK did (and in my opinion, some of them don't work well together in the context of the movie).
Same here. There's more than you realize. I didn't even know just how much there was until I read that list.
