Default Re: 8 years of no Batman or Bruce Wayne, and NO ONE could pick up the trend?

It is why the board members (at least the one from BB and the one played by Sen. Leahy) show him more respect, as he was taking his father's mantle...and drove it into the ground as Daggett gleefully points out. It is also how he could divert half of WE's R&D into an energy project that he then "mothballs."

Man, I wish we could have seen this stuff. That would have been great.

True, but which one do we pay to see in a BATMAN movie?

You're right though. Even though the clean energy orb itself is silly, it IS a nice little philanthropic goal for Wayne. It's just too bad it's something that had to conveniently be turned into a damn LoS weapon. I think I'd be easier on it if it wasn't explained in exposition (with freaking Talia no less) but rather, shown to us.

It's even like that in the comics between Selina and Bruce. You're just desperately trying to hate this trilogy, especially the final piece.
"Desperately trying to hate this trilogy". Riiiiight. Let's get dramatic about it.

Only Rises here buddy. I suspended my disbelief in Begins, I just made sure I'd bring up the "issue" from Begins so I wouldn't be accused of purposely overlooking issues in Begins and Dark Knight in favor of condemning TDKR.

Begins is great and I LOVE The Dark Knight. It's much easier to tear down something you don't like than it is to critique something you enjoy. Joker rigging buildings > Bane getting motorcycles inside a the market district every day of the week.
