Yeah, I don't know why they didn't go with at least portions of it. The characters are fairly mute without it because the internal dialogue colors them deeply. And not just Batman; nearly every major character has a monologue at one point. Some of the greatest pieces of writing in the comic is the self-narration and it held the movie version back.

There has been an awakening.
Have you felt it?
