Re: Batman should die in the next film!
^For a few reasons:
Bale is Nolan's Batman and he's likely not going to continue past the 3rd film anymore than Nolan is.
Also, Nolan's take on Batman(great as it is) is still limited. It cuts out entire swaths of Batman's mythos that would simply never work with that kind of take(too fantastical). I'd like the next Batman director to try to shoot right down the middle between Nolan's version and Burton's.
My God, did that smell good!
