It works for Dexter sure. But I don't think I want to see it in Batman.
If you read comics, you already see it in Batman.

But no, I see the argument for both sides. It's just with these inherently stoic leads, you have little wiggle room to explore them without "resorting" to methods like inner monologues.

So it's either you have a fairly shallow presentation of Batman, or you're forced to be creative and make the narration work. After decades of the former, I'd be more interested in the latter.

It's not like we're not familiar with the method. I think everyone is aware how Shakesperean and expositional Nolan's films can be. This would simply remove that stage play element and give it solely to the one character it would make sense to have their thoughts uttered out loud.
