I also don't understand most people's reaction of how all of a sudden Gotham almost seems like a character in the film. It always seemed to me that it was, especially in the later comics and especially in the Burton films.
I like that Gotham has, more or less, become its own character. It helps set the city apart from other fictional towns (like Metropolis, or Hollywood) and give it a distinctive style.
the rat fuckers have ditched Renee Montoya in favour of her clone Anna Ramirez (who is due to turn up in Dark Knight). Needless to say I'm not pleased, as everything about Ramirez matches Montoya at least up to her early Gotham Central days, even down to her partner Crispus Allen.
I suspect this is something that is only really going to annoy the hard core purist fans. The character was good, her stories were good, that's good enough for me.
As for the colour change in the suit, that may have been to break up the monotony of an all black suit for the different medium. Sure, full black is a lot more intimidating, but adding in a bit of variance makes it easier to see the subject, especially in dark scenes, without having to resort of stylistic tweaks (like fake 'halos' of light). Also, a lot of it comes down to the artist's interpretation of Batman.
I didn't expect the shorts to be 100% like the movie, that was always going to be impossible. Instead, they present a way of looking that universe through a much more stylistic lens. What mattered to me is that the stories were good and entertaining, and I thought they were - especially the first.
