And right there I just want to walk up to Nolan's Batman and say "Yes! Yes, you're supposed to understand every word of that because you're The Goddamn Batman and you trained your body and mind to perfection so that you could understand **** like that in such crisis! What the **** were you doing for 7 years?"
I strongly agree with this. That was a face palm moment for me when I saw BB for the first time. It was bad enough Fox was the one to find an antidote (Heck Batman from TAS still went after Scarecrow while infected with fear toxins), but explaining how he came up with it to Bruce. And making Bruce come off like an idiot in the process was an insult to the character, imo.
