"We need to trust Batman because he knows best. This is already a disturbing idea in most superhero films where the superhero is basically a cop. Batman is like a full government branch though. He has files on everyone, has eyes everywhere, is not above enhanced interrogation to get what he wants and casually decides what's right and wrong. This idea is enhanced in that last trailer when the city just falls apart without him. The system we have in place isn't enough."
