That was also because a "reboot" was not nearly as known or understood as it is now. Where Begins inspired the modern reboot arguably.

You'll still have the people who might be disappointed Bale isn't back as Batman though. That's why the actor cast in the role better be damn near perfect as there is going to be a lot of scrutiny. WB was actually smart to introduce the new batman this way though than in a solo reboot. Less pressure on the actor.
