Eh. The TDK canon wasn't THAT faithful. It lacked the fantasy elements of his comic counterparts. Batman quit pretty early in his career. No Robin, no Barbara Gordon (either as Batgirl OR Oracle), Huntress, etc.

Not to mention Batman himself was tense and passionate, rather than the generally stoic character of comics and animation.

And that's not mentioning that his ninja fighting ability was limited, and that they didn't spend a lot of time focusing on his detective ability. Also, he didn't use Batarangs as weapons until the third film

Furthermore, Lucious tends to be a minor character in comics, but who can object to more Morgan Freeman?

So yes, Batman and his rogues gallery can fairly easily be better adapted. But making movies with the amount of groundbreaking detail, memorable performances, ambition, good dialog, and strong narrative structuring will be the hard part.
