Re: 8 years of no Batman or Bruce Wayne, and NO ONE could pick up the trend?
milost- if Nolan is "meh" on TDKR in 10 years, that wouldn't change my opinion whatsoever. It is a HUGE pet peeve of mine when people take the creator's own opinion as gospel. For instance there are songs and albums by bands that I love that the band claims to now hate. Don't care. Just because they created it doesn't make their opinion infallible.
I'm sure Nolan has things he wishes he could change about all three movies in hindsight, it's only natural. But I'm also quite confident that he's pretty damn proud of all three of his babies. The trilogy will be a huge part of his legacy, no way around it. He spent 10 years of his life on it and it really helped shape his career and launch it into the stratosphere. Also, TDKR is the most ambitious film he's ever made in terms of scale and it'll be tough to top in that regard.
