TDK was the only really dark ending. Begins was somewhere in the middle.
BB ending was a **** YEAH moment. TDK's was a goosebumpy but dark as hell ending. TDKR was a super emotional but happy moment.
Well have to disagree but to me Bruce Wayne is Batman and when he stops been Batman the story isn't interesting for me. Also I only feel like he needed to stop been Batman in the 3rd one, the others I didn't get that same feeling. Rises was a happy ending for Bruce but not in my eyes as a Batman fan cause its supposed to be the never ending battle. Are we supposed to believe Bruce Wayne will be happy living in France with Selina Kyle if he hears ****s going down in Gotham again? Not for me.
