Re: Tom Hardy as Bane XXX
Movie world =/= Comic book world. If Batman couldn't accomplish his goal, it would mean he failed. This is not comics. In comics, you can always hope for Batman is always be there or he'll end the crime one day. That doesn't work for comics if your main hero isn't Superman or something.
Endless war means mission failed. He accomplished his mission and passed the torch to Johnny Blake if there is something happens.
