Selina was excited he came back, though maybe the "no guns. no killing" thing surprised her if she bought it. Her reaction should be, "from the guy that killed Dent?" This guy is supposed to be a cop killing crazed murderer but not too many people seem to buy it. It was one of the things I was anticipating but it was odd it's downplayed.
Exactly. Excellent post.
For all the times Nolan talked about the 8-year-gap being necessary to show that Dent's death had an impact on Gotham, TDKR has so many inconsistencies with TDK's ending. Most of those inconsistencies have to do with Batman. He's supposed to be a crazed criminal now... but we never get to see cops hunting/hating him, citizens fearing him, and criminals thinking "wow, Batman really is knocking off criminals!"...
That's why I just feel like there should of been a third movie in-between TDK and TDKR... or TDKR, the final film, should have been a 2-part film... like Potter and Twilight did on their final films.
