If you consider yourself to be a fan of the trilogy then to me that will never change, I will always be a fan of it!
Very true. I still hold B89 in a very special place. It was my first ever VHS tape as a kid (Ironically, TDK prompted me to take the Bluray plunge.) I played that VHS until it broke lol. Literally. I can probably quote that movie almost verbatim. BR I feel is a good Burton movie as I grew to like it more than I did when I was young, it's just not a good Batman film. I even like BF well enough. There's definitely room for different interpretations. I actually think the best way for DC to go is a complete comic translation, cloth suit and all. It's never been done big screen, and opens up the filmmaker to a whole new avenue to exploit.

That being said, almost every wish I've ever had for Batman came true with Nolan's trilogy, one way or another. They definitely need to let this franchise breath for a little.

Exactly, it's going to be a hard reputation to get rid of after awhile. Sooner or later, all the good directors might have their "superhero" fix as it is, with 3-4 movies coming out every year. Over-saturation, lack of creative control, these are all reasons to enjoy this era of comic flicks now. I have a feeling things are going to change sooner rather than later. IMO, it might not be a bad thing either. I'd prefer to get 1 or 2 quality movies a year as opposed to 3 or 4 mediocre ones.
