Yeah Nolan and/or Goyer got inspired by those for many elements throughout the trilogy But characters(appearances and portrayals)and Gotham City(Begins came very close though)for the most part just didn't get handled well.
The dark tone/Gotham in Begins/Some story elements/Alfred in BB&TDK and Joker(for the most part)are the only things truly faithful to the Bat mythology in the comics!
The dark tones(especially B'89)/Batman in Burton's films(yes even the killing since Bob Kane had Batman kill in the first couple of issues)and Gotham in B'89 were done justice!
Even Schumacher got Bruce Wayne AND Batman in Forever better than Bale's in Nolan's films!
