I hope I am posting this in the right place,
Nalan mentioned in an interview with Movie Talk, I think, that he planned to End Batman's story,
Christopher Nolan Talks About Superman's New Beginning and Batman's End

| The other bombshell in the interview is that Nolan intends for his follow-up for the hugely successful "The Dark Knight" to be his last Batman film. He says that his brother Jonathan, who co-wrote the last movie, is currently at work on the screenplay. Nolan says that finding an ending to Batman's story is the main appeal for him to return to Gotham City. |
"I'm very excited about the end of the film, the conclusion, and what we've done with the characters," Nolan tells the Times. "Unlike the comics, these things don't go on forever in film and viewing it as a story with an end is useful."
Do you think Nolan's Batman will end, something along the lines of a realistic ending to a hero vigilante?
Would Bruce stop being Batman? Perhaps because he saved the city of Gotham? Will Bruce die? Sacrificing himself to save Gotham? After all Ras did say, "Their deaths galvanized the city into saving itself" (talking about the death of Bruce's parents.) So maybe Bruce as Batman sacrifices himself in order to save Gotham or in order to force Gothem to save itself. Maybe even without a Batman, because he is dead or because he retires, the myth of Batman goes on.
And end to the Batman story would also give the audiences a chance to see the ending of other character's stories, like Alfred's and the Jokers.
If Nolan ends the Batman stories how do you think it will happen? What would you like to see?
