Evolve was a poor choice of words, but Anno Dom and Tequilla did a better job of saying what I meant. Use Bale as Batman but in a different "universe" - the backstory of which is obviously different - say like dropping Bale's Batman in Burton's version so to speak. The idea is that a reboot was always going to be different, but not that you can't simply use Bale to portray the new Batman.
