Seriously though, that is my main gripe. He comes back and fights Rahs almost immediately, then Gordon is like "we've got this guy the joker", beats him and then disappears for 8 years and then spends a few months in DKR Phone Post

There seems to be no Batman activity outside of the movies Phone Post

It must have been less than 3 years.

Would have been better if he had remained as batman after the dent/joker incident and then retired once the streets were clean.

Because he quit immediately there wasn't much reason he should have had the knee issues. Phone Post

I think there is a disconnect between the ending of Begins and TDK. Yes I know Gordon mentions the Joker, but by the beginning ot TDK it is apparent Batman has been hounding the cities criminals for quite some time. A couple years I would guess.

There is no time line mentioned so I don't think "a few years" is a goo assumption because there not really anything that lends to that Phone Post

The amount of damage he has done to their business, running every drug supplier other than Scarecrow out of business, the mafia boss played by Eric Robertson being familiar with, even casual about how they knew Batman had rules when the Joker did not. These things imply a prolonged fight and becoming used to your opponent's methods.

There are definitely inconsistencies. The easiest way to make sense is to ignore Gordon's Joker playing card scene.

Even the irradiated bills that they used to track the mobs money supply. That alone would take months even if Gordon would have trusted Batman right away and let him coordinate such a delicate effort.

I thought it was pretty widely understood that there was at least 3-4 year gap between Begins & TDK

Less than a year.

This is based on when the Joker says: "Let's wind the clocks back a year. These cops and lawyers wouldn't dare cross any of you. I mean, what happened? Did, did your balls drop off?"

That implies that it has been a year since Batman came onto the scene in Gotham and started his war on organized crime along with Jim Gordon.

You have to consider that Gordon's son was an infant in the Begins and is a 6-7 year old in TDK.

If true, this would seem to clinch it. Joker's statement about winding the clock back a year could only refer to when the tide started to turn, not when Batman first appeared.

They released an entire movie about what the Batman was doing between the movies. Yes, it's considered canon.

"The producers have acknowledged that it is not necessarily meant to be canon to the "Nolanverse,"

A friend of mine did find a hilarious plot hole in TDK. At the end Bats says he will take responsibility for the Dent killings, he can do that for Gotham. My friend says, "Why not just blame the killings on the Joker? Noone would believe him anyway."

Because he has an alibi?

What is his alibi? They could easily spin it that the murders happened while Joker was on the loose. In fact I think they did. Fudge the times a little on the official report, no problem.
