Re: 8 years of no Batman or Bruce Wayne, and NO ONE could pick up the trend?
Not me! I adore his voice!
But that's an interesting point. I do agree that it should have been stretched out longer, or made into 2 parter, or even a book. They would have been able to do more things with the scenes and fleshed it out. I have zero problem with the 8 year gap or anything about this movie but it would have been cool to see some sort of montage (this works if it was a 2 parter) where Batman is in the shadows taking down criminals or battling rogues after TDK.
