Batman Begins dealt with fear.
The Dark Knight dealt with anarchy.

What will Batman 3 deal with? Thoughts?

I think it will be redemption not just of Batman, but also of Gotham. Gotham has been portrayed as a city with little good, but a city that Batman and Gordon see hope for. Its about time they had their faith rewarded.

Redemption would be good. I was thinking about isolation as well.

Isolation just seems too depressing to finish the series out on, but its not a bad idea.

It does huh? :lol:

But with Rachel gone and the police chasing after him, it just seems like a good theme to go with.

If The Riddler is going to be the main villain I think narcissism would play a big role as far as what the theme would be.

but since it also sounds like the film will be tying things up, I suppose the GREATER theme will be redemption.

And I think it can be a really interesting journey as to how we arrive there.

I think the major question at the start of the movie will not be WHO is Batman, but rather WHERE is Batman? I'm excited now!! :D

Nolan also said the trilogy will end the BatNolan story, so that could mean Batman hanging up his cape for good.

Thus I think the theme would center around redemption as well as upholding justice without the need for external forces or vigilantism. In other words, I think the film will strive to create somewhat of a balance by the end.
If she plays cranium she gives good brainium.
