Instead he and Talia both die in very unflattering, inglorious ways, unaware that their ultimate mission will fail. Poetic justice.

What's so odd about Catwoman teasing Batman in a humorous way? It's her MO essentially.

I thought that moment was pure Catwoman snark, very fitting for her character. Although the line did take me out of the scene a little bit on subsequent viewings. But I digress.

Now that would have been a surprising end to the trilogy.
How very inspiring.
