Isn’t Barbara a) Oracle and b) in a wheelchair in the Arkham series?

I think the reinterpretation works. In a purely physical sense, it was Obi-Wan who left Anakin on Mustafar, walking away and leaving him to die, so there’s some room for debate there. Anakin’s leaving was more a matter of philosophy, as he left Obi-Wan’s mentorship/the Jedi order and did so while still a Jedi Knight who hadn’t been given the title of Master.

Especially with this being his second-ish year, it would have been more interesting IMO if he had struggled a little more.
I saw this a bit differently. While Batman was good at figuring out literal riddles, he pretty much failed to stop any part of the Riddler’s plan. After stepping into the case with the old mayor’s death, Batman still failed to prevent the deaths of the police commissioner, the DA or Carmine Falcone, nor did he stop the plot to destroy the seawall. The only direct survivors of the Riddler’s acts were Alfred, who wasn’t actually an intended target, and the new mayor, who lived only because Riddler’s goons were lousy shots; Batman did nothing to keep either of them alive. The Batman is kind of like Raiders of the Lost Ark, in that the style and the action both kind of gloss over the fact that the hero really didn’t do much of anything to actually stop the bad guys.

They want the thing they like to be taken "seriously"
The only two performances in a comic book film to win an Academy Award were both for portrayals of the Joker. I don’t know how much more seriously they can hope for a movie to be taken.

That’s not the Mjolnir we’re seeing here. The one Jane is wielding is covered with fractures, meaning it’s the original timeline version destroyed by Hela and now somehow restored.
