The difference is James Bond was created around a certain geo-political climate, Batman on the other hand has a much more contemporary concept that can always place him in a modern world. If they focus on making one great stand alone film at a time, don't rush new stories and characters, and don't jump any sharks they could do a continuous Batman film series for a long time.
They'll be good films and bad ones but it will be a more substainable business model void of unnecessary reboots retelling the same story.
"Bond it" until someone messes it up beyond recognition. MOS gets a sequel. If WF is a different sort of movie, MOS should have a proper sequel. If this is actually a proper sequel, WF next. THEN Wonder Woman. THEN the Batman reboot. With the Trinity out of the way, introduce the Flash for the justice league within the film. I kind of like how DC:The New Frontier had quite a bit of the Green Lantern origin. Let it be both an epic origin, AND an epic team up film.
And then spin off individual franchises from the Justice League film. I actually don't want a JL trilogy. Maybe a film every few years, but I don't want them to take JL sequels above more solo films.
And then when the stars get old, have a dramatic tale of their last stand. Or hint at a different universe. Something to make one last epic from this unfortunate fact of life.
EX: A Batman movie in which he's FORCED to retire, and then hands the cowl to Terry setting up a BB movie (this should be an epilogue).
