Default Re: In hindsight what changes would you do

In hindsight, I would have loved to see Bruce actually need to be Batman in a personal sense. It's set up pretty well in Begins, but in following films he's clearly just looking for a way out the whole time.

Bruce Wayne is a man driven to fight crime because of his past, and to me has an obsession with justice that borders on madness.

He didn't quit because of Rachel, and he couldn't continue the fight for 8 years because there was nothing to fight against. This Batman was more about organized crime than the small timers because that's where it begins. That's the root of the problem. There was no organized crime to fight against in the 8 years.
Which, in itself is pretty unrealistic, and kind of missing the point of the concept of Batman. Nolan did his own thing. It works as its own thing. The existing mythology's take is far more compelling, layered, and powerful.
