Re: Next Batman Film Franchise...
I really wonder what assortment of stories and arcs from the comics that they're gonna use in the next series. Nolan and co. pulled from so many of the major ones that it might be difficult to find material to make the next franchise unique. But there's such a wealth of stuff that it probably won't be much of a problem, assuming that they'll even depend on it very much. I've thought for a while that whereas Nolan's trilogy was a grand sweeping epic depicting Bruce's entire character arc they next film series will be smaller in scope and more related to other characters, aka the Justice League.
O Captain! My Captain! Rise up and hear the bells.
Rise up, for you the flag is flung, for you the bugle trills.
For you bouquets and ribbon'd wreaths, for you the shores a-crowding.
For you they call, the swaying mass, their eager faces turning.
