Re: A New Director After Nolan?
Also, the it would be easy to accept a new trilogy in ten years that has more science fiction villians if they built off of what Nolan created already. This would be like how Batman: Year One can lead into Batman: The Man Who Laughs into Batman & The Mad Men, etc...
Each "Trilogy" can be a metaphor for arcs in comics. New Cast/Directors every 10 years kind of like how the comics have reigning Authors/Artists for 3-4 years but keeping in line one rough "conitnuity" so there is no need for re-hash or full out rebooting like Spider-Man is doing if ever "trilogy" that follows is still bringing their A game.
