Default Batman After Nolan

From io9:
What do you think will come after Nolan's last Batman film?

From IGN:
Where Should Batman Go When Nolan Leaves?
As eager as we are to see The Dark Knight Rises, we know that when that day comes, it's gonna be bittersweet. It will be bittersweet because that movie will mark the last time Chris Nolan directs a Batman film.

That sound you hear are fanboys everywhere taking a collective puff on their inhalers, preparing for a day when the world will still need Batman, but Nolan may not. What Nolan and his filmmaking team did with Gotham's Dark Knight changed things - forever. The filmmaker took his inspired story sense that made Memento and Insomnia work, applied it to the DC Universe, and elevated the comic book movie to the type of thing that earns Oscar nominations and wins. Batman Begins' tested the "reboot" waters and now that movie's model is one we've seen applied to other reboots, such as James Bond's Casino Royale. The Dark Knight spoiled us on what a great movie can be and changed the way Hollywood makes sequels.

In June 2011, Warner will release its Green Lantern movie, which stars Ryan Reynolds as a test pilot with superpowers. The studio is also developing a Superman film, more Batman installments, and movies based on vintage action heroes Wonder Woman, the Flash, Green Arrow, and Aquaman, Horn says.
