Yea you're right he did try to do it but from the moment the initial power shots didn't do squat to Bane after how easily he dismantled everyone else before I think even the average fan knew it was over. I was leaning more towards a scenario like Batman realizing Bane isn't normal and go for the mask ,fight smarter and keep his distance you know.
This was my question in my original post. If Batman could kick through bricks, he could've kicked bane in the head, and Bane dies.
If Bane could punch through a pillar, he would've killed Batman with a couple head shots in the first fight.
All in all, it's just a movie. But like all movies, film makers will look back at their work and notice the same things we bring up.
Exactly but these things are still haunting us because the movie itself wasn't up to par making everything wrong standout.
