The origin side of the story in undoubtedly the best one. The tone is just great. problem is that, as you say, the film takes a lot of time to show us the hero in the outfit but when it does,... it doesn't really.

Well, many movies before BB weren't afraid to go all comic book mode. And you have to admit the impact of a tragic ending story. Hamlet was originally written with a happy ending (Hamlet gets married), then Shakespeare changed it to a tragic ending and nobody else bothered to remember the original story.
That said, the ending of BB (rooftop scene and Joker card) was phenomenal, but the Bruce/Rachel thing didn't end happily precisely, although not tragically either.
