Also, one of my biggest gripes with TDKR was how cut-and-paste the story felt because the comics they chose to base TDKR on didn't mesh that well together in the execution.
Joker also brought up a great point. No one has been a slave to the comics so far. In fact, Batman Begins and The Dark Knight are more faithful than some of the MCU movies were.
I don't understand how someone has a problem with that happened with Bruce in TDKR, but yet they're fine when Bruce mentioned creating a symbol that's everlasting back in BB.
