I'm totally against connecting TDKT with MOS, but the way you're developping your thing, I start to ask myself too if WB wasn't planning to do it this way. All the element we know for the moment are there. The older Batman, a young adult sidekick,... I remember they were saying Superman was the first hero of this universe, and taking Batman from TDKT, in the last installement he was starting to be just an urban legend before his return, so it was still possible to play with a Batman already there but operating in the shadow.
Good call, but even if WB was really up for a similar approach, I still think it's not a good idea. This trilogy was a sort of elseworld, and giving a continuity to it is the best manner to destroy the thematics treated in it.
