Having a supervillain kill them negates that (I hated when Burton did it as well). I agree with the rest of your post though.
I forgot all about in the first couple issues of Jeff Loebs' Superman/Batman they tried to imply that John Corben was Wayne's parents' killer. Oh god I hope they don't go that way here to tie it into Batman. Why does it sound like something Goyer might do though after having a cursory read through that series...
