Default Re: How Long Was Bruce Wayne Actually Batman in this Trilogy?

Imo, Nolan's Batman was not one to mess with the random purse snatcher so Bruce was intent on just waiting until something bad happens next which is what Alfred alluded to in TDKR.
That's my point, hint to some things that were worthy of Bruce's attention. But when they are gone. He keeps being Batman, trying to stop "small" crimes like murders, rapes, carjackings, but they aren't worth the toll on his body.

Of course, but, imo, I'm glad they did.
Bringing in the League seemed like trying to arbitrarily tie it to Batman Begins.

It's not infinitely blowing up the balloon though, the story would have still ended. It's keeping Bruce as Batman within the timeline of the film series. Did you feel cheated that The Dark Knight hinted towards confrontations between Batman and Scarecrow between Batman Begins and The Dark Knight? I sure as hell didn't.

I found appropiate his creative choices. Those gaps are opportunities, yes. But then, we would need another director, and perhaps his vision would compromise the themes of the trilogy, who knows?
Would we? Hints towards events doesn't mean we have to see them. Like Joker's origin for example.
