I think the whole trilogy is one giant multi-layered epic and all three of them comprise one of the great modern myths. I'm just saying BB, and especially TDKR go for more of that "Lawrence of Arabia" kind of vibe. Evoking the epic, just as TDK evoked the crime film/psychological thriller. Thematically, they're all dealing with very universal and old ideas.
Moral of the story...Batman is epic.
