Movies are a finite universe. They're not coming out once or twice a month for decades. I've no problem with a villain being killed off if they've been used well in the movie, or their death serves a purpose. In fairness to Nolan, he didn't kill all of his villains. Joker and Scarecrow got to live. Those that died, their death did have a purpose (Ra's and Two Face). Bane was used well.
I gave this some thought and I agree, but only to a point. I think its just as realistic to have an Arkham with less laughable security and let them stay locked up for life.
It's not about what Nolan wants ITS ABOUT WHATS FAIR.
:P jkjk. You're right. He kept a couple alive. But he did kill off more than half of the villains he used.
