I understand Blake needed sufficient screen time, so that when the last shot of him "rising" in the cave comes up, we buy that he will be Batman's successor. But when you have other characters like Selina, Bane, and especially Bruce's outward journey; seeing Blake on screen in the second act is just a chore. I think I would rather Bruce die at the end, and just take Blake out of the film altogether. Have more Selina, Talia and especially more Gordon screen time.

They handled Blake's arc just fine for the most part, to be fair, but he's the only main cast character in the trilogy that I wasn't fully engaged with. I mean, we can all agree that Talia was underdeveloped, but when she was revealed I so wanted to see more of that character.
