That's exactly what I'm thinking. I say take elements of ROTJ and lead with that as the first film combined with Terry's origin. I can see the urge to do Blight , but with something as bold as Beyond as your launch pad for a film universe, it'd be better to use someone like the Joker from not only a story pov but from a marketing pov. It could also explain why this Batman is retired making it further clear that this Batman isn't the same one who retired at the end of TDKR and didn't retire for those same reasons.
