I felt that managing to give Bruce a satisfying arc alongside Blake's origin was a testament to the Nolans'/Goyer's abilities as writers and ideamen. I didn't feel like Blake's arc really detracted from Bruce's story. If anything, I'd wanted more from Blake's past. And Catwoman's. And Bane's.
"...the historians will write of our suffering, and they will speak of it as the suffering of those who served the Crippled God. As something … fitting. And for our seeming fanaticism they will dismiss all that we were, and think only of what we achieved. Or failed to achieve.
And in so doing, they will miss the whole ****ing point.”
