Re: Should Batman be portrayed as a Protagonist or Antagonist in this film?
Except if you're dealing with an extremely cynical and older Bruce Wayne, then why would he suddenly be inspired by Clark? Given that Bruce will also see the mess that transpired in Metropolis and Smallville, it would make him even more suspicious than hopeful.
At least TDK's Bruce had reason to be hopeful because Dent did everything that Batman could do, except more efficiently, not to mention that Dent represented a the potential for Bruce to have a normal life. Also, it depends on how Batman is treated. Nolan's Batman was a temporary solution to Gotham's problem, whereas the comic book Batman is meant to be a long term solution (mainly because comic issues and money).
