Better than "The Caped Crusader" which sounds like it belongs to the 90s.
I'm curious why you'd associate that title with the '90s. I see it more as a product of the '60s and '70s. I think it fell out of use in the comics when they went darker.

The Dark Knight Rises, close to the Dark Knight Returns.
Now people are going to have trouble using TDKR as an acronym without confusing people.

I was just going to say that Batman Begins was a lame title.
In retrospect, sure, but at the time it seemed appropriate and in line with what came before.
Well, structurally it was in line with previous titles, but conceptually it was intended more in opposition to previous movies. It was important to say right up front, in the clearest possible terms, that this was a new beginning and not a continuation of what Joel Schumacher did.
