Incidentally, being a 'love interest' has very little to do with it. They'd both female characters that the respective heroes care a lot about and who wind up dying as a result of the hero failing to save them in time and were killed (both, in-story and from the writer's intentions) to induce angst and trauma for the hero in question rather than for anything relating to their own identities.
meh. i rarely see the media "compare" comic films... unless it's a reboot of a past film of the same character. The only people that will honestly compare this.... are nolanites and douchey bat-fans (note to all, not all bat-fans are douchey, i'm just talking about those who are douchey)
