An important detail, that I never see discussed about this film, is that it's set in the future. The Dark Knight was set in 2008, and in TDKR they state that 8 years have passed since Dent's death, which means the movie takes place in 2016. I think that's a significant reason why the film has a bit more of a sci-fi vibe to it with the leg brace and The Bat being gadgets that aren't really possible today, but are far from the realm of plausibility within the next several years.
