REBOOT = Marc Webb's Amazing Spiderman to Sam Raimi's Spiderman flicks or Leterrier's The Incredible Hulk to Ang Lee's abortion of a Hulk film. TOTAL REBOOT. None of this "character from Nolan's film (John Blake/JGL) crossing over into a new director's series" bullshit. Won't happen!
The majority of the true fans of Nolan's Batverse undertsand that the crucial aspect of the Batman mythos that Nolan got PERFECT was that Bruce is the center of the story, no matter how many fascinating villains and awesome events surround him. Burton didn't understand this. Schumacher didn't understand this (along with many other things of course) but Nolan does. So despite what you love/don't love about Nolan's Bat films (I adore them beyond belief but no film is completely flawless), I know that he will end this trilogy with the utmost respect for the Bruce character (be it in the form of a sacrificial death of Batman or Bruce literally, metaphorically, or something else).
All I know is passing on the mantle to a character like John Blake just rubs me the wrong way and doesn't seem like what Nolan set out to do. I could be completely wrong and Nolan and company could pull it off so believably and beautifully that it fits in just right but I can't begin to imagine how that'd be possible and I hope it doesn't happen myself. I also hope there's other folks on here that will back me up with this rambling of mine.
I agree. Reboot means reboot.
Also, whhat if Bruce becomes a cop after he hangs up the cowl
