To an extent, because I understand how people can come up with such conclusions, but I disagree because it didn't appear to be like that for me. Primarly, because we are talking about Bruce Wayne story. A sequel with Blake would be more in the field of a spinoff.

He was still there. Still, seven villains is not to bad

The Nolan films are not a straight adaptation of that world. They are a reverent interpretation of the source material which manages to embody most of the greatest aspects of the Batman mythos through the years. It has a different set of rules, in a different media.

They had, Scarecrow was even being considered for the following film after Batman & Robin. Both Ra's and Scarecrow appeared in other media and are staples in the comic books before the Nolan films.


A hero can be anyone. Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy's shoulders to let him know that the world hadn't ended.
