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

I'm not entirely sure if Bruce leaves Blake ALL of his Batman stuff. He only had two batsuits - one was destroyed by Bane in the sewer and the other has a stab hole in it thanks to Talia.

I like to think that Bruce leaves Blake the detective tech which is all in the cave, but not the actual Batman weaponry. Blake does not question his morals as Bruce does (cell phone sonar, anyone?), and if he keeps an eye on things from afar without showing up in a cape and cowl and publicly kicking asses, nobody would be none the wiser.

Or if his parents could speak with him from beyond the other realm. Point is, they wouldn't have wanted Batman for him.
