Re: Why did the League of Shadows want to destroy a peaceful city?
The question is was the LoS thing required in the first place. I maintain eliminating that aspect of the story and giving Bane his own motivation would make for a much better movie. The other thing the LoS stuff does is dilutes both Talia and Catwoman. I believe this film shows exactly why Talia works best when Ra's is in the picture and was the exact thing I feared going into this film.
