Not only that, as much as I like the Nolan franchise, he is not the end all be all. For example, I've still yet to see Bruce Wayne truly reach his onscreen potential, as much as I love Michael Keaton and Christian Bale.
I used to get annoyed by this. Like when it happened to Burton or Raimi. But I've either just grown used to it or am so satisfied with the Nolan movies, I don't care. This thread is more just predicting the future for posterity's sake.
As for getting Bruce Wayne right. I personally love Bale's performance in every way save the voice. But after three films, I've learned to accept it. When I just the intensity he displays behind the mask and the way he moves and acts, he really did feel like the Bruce/Batman I always wanted (in the first two anyway. Nolan takes him on a journey in the third into uncharted territory and i love that too).
But I see your point.
