@Elbarto17: Nolan's Batman's rule was about not playing Judge, Jury, and Executioner. No killing at all was never a rule.
Now of course, this Batman played(past tense) Judge, Jury, and Executioner. But its implied that wasn't always the case. Something broke him, but Superman caused him to change hence why he didn't brand Lex.
I don't CARE about what Nolan thought, i'm talking about Batman's character, not his movies...
Nolan's Batman is a good movie(s) .....it's not a good Batman movie, it's a good movie.
If you get what i mean.
You say that like Batman's no-killing-rule is all there is to the character. Which is something he originally didn't have for a long time.
It's something important to his character...
And you guys really like the 40s, do you....whatever suits you.
