we apparently don't need origin stories for James Bond or Sherlock Holmes, so I'm sure we don't need one for Batman.
Yet that's just what we got with the last pair of Sherlock Holmes and 2 Bond movies.

They're not the best examples anyway. Origin stories seem to be much more common when dealing with superhero movies than other genres.

That's probably because filmmakers feel a need to explain why the heroes can fly or walk through walls.

With a spy or detective, less explanation is required since spies and detectives exist in real life.
