Re: 8 years of no Batman or Bruce Wayne, and NO ONE could pick up the trend?
I disagree that it's a repeat, just a parallel. But if it is indeed a repeat, i felt it was awesome to end things by returning to the first film. Like a bookend. The beginning story and end story, mirroring each other, with a crime epic in the center.
"Lets make one thing very clear here - Nolan's films are as faithful an adaptation as there is. It pays homage to its source material, remains true to its characters and above all else places the story first and foremost." - jmc
