I disagree. First of all, like I said before, is this not the premise of the riddler's agenda?
Second of all, the first film made it more believable, with Bruce returning, and first being the playboy and then later dismissing Batman as something to be respected. The third film made it silly with both him and the Batman figure being in the shadows for 8 years.
