And I believe, if nothing good comes out of that long and hopeful battle against evil, then what was the point of it all? There is no point in telling a story of a man persevering through his own problems and the evils of society if it ends no better than what it started. Batman tries and IS an inspiration to all. Bruce ended on a happy note, but Batman continued, as evil will always remain.

I like Bruce being this driven character who will fight to the day he dies...but I like the ending for him in TDKR.

I think people miss the point when it comes to the whole "Bruce can't have a happy/normal life if he's Batman" thing. Being Batman prevents Bruce from having a normal life, but it doesn't neccessarily prevent him from being happy. Who says he's not happy being Batman?

Same days he's happy and some days he's not

He cracks a joke with Alfred here and there, he has a smile on his face when he's with a woman...but it doesn't last, which is to be expected.

[QUOTE=shauner111;24719683]Yes the show was true to some comics at the time but the tone wasn't the true original depiction of Batman. p>
For those who wish to emphasize Bob Kane, he introduced the boy sidekick in pixie shoes and shaved legs. Kane also named Val Kilmer as his favorite portrayor of the role in Cinescape.

What? Well it makes sense considering Keaton, Clooney, and West were the only contenders.

At that point, Kilmer was probably the closest to Bob's vision of Batman.

Funny thing, Kilmer is my least favorite Batman.

Well, when it comes to the physical appearance of Bruce Wayne. Kilmer looked the most like Bruce. More than Keaton, West, Clooney.

Keaton was the best actor and he had the darkness that the others didn't have. In my opinion Bale had the look down (in begins) better than Kilmer. AND the darkness. Even though Keatons darkness seemed more crazy. Then again Bale looked pretty crazy in his first appearance in TDKR. The arrow scene and that look he's giving Selina when he starts walking towards her with his cane? Haha he looked like a whackjob.

We've also been there and done that, twice now, with Catwoman. No thanks.

Well that is certainly not true, IMO. But I'm also not interested in ever seeing an ending like that again.
