For me, chalk that up to the recast breaking the connection, but more importantly the way they wrote her character as someone completely different - even unlikable.
I've talked to people (mostly general audience types, not really fans) who were glad
she died, because they found her annoying in TDK. Such a shame, 'cause her character (actress regardless) started off so nicely in Begins, and that was meant to be at the heart of TDK, her death the big turning point. Feels a bit wasted.
