Re: NOW which film is your favourite??
It's still Rises for me. It just ticked all the right boxes for me as a viewer.
I always found it difficult to choose between TDK and BB (still do) because they each have their strengths. I loved the personal journey and character exploration of Bruce in BB, and I felt it was a more 'Batman' film than TDK. But TDK had a much more exciting story, villain and overall sense of scope.
TDKR for me felt like the combination of the two strengths.
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
