I think with Bale people were expecting more somehow because they'd seen him in things like American Psycho. But like someone said earlier, a lot of the time the heroes performance is subtle/understated and ends up under-rated because there are those that seem to think good acting means showing extreme displays emotions or playing a wacky or evil character.
That's why it's so often the villain that everyone raves about being amazing. Like Bardem in Skyfall for example.
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.'
