Stupider than killing Obiwan in the first movie he appeared in?

Huge comic book characters have died in the comics including Batman!,Perhaps not forever But still,And so why can't it be done in movie versions??It would be faithful to the comics in a way.

The next director will likely be doing another re-boot,Even IF he/she will do a sequel then they could say that Bruce/Batman faked his death to be in a hidden role.....Either way Bruce/Batman will return just like in the comics!.

Joker, Penguin, and Two-Face all die in the previous series, while Ra's and the other Two-Face die in the Nolan movies.

I could work, but I have severe doubts it would happen. I would actually love for Batman to cark it and have the series continue with Michael Caine's Alfred as the protagonist, with Morgan Freeman as his partner! Two old guys beat the crap out of Gotham's underworld - I would watch that!

Killing Batman in the movies then bringing him back would be just a big a cop out as it is in the comics.

I think it wouldnt be such a bad idea for Batman to die. It would ensure that the movie would remain a trilogy and that no other directors would come to make sequels till the horse isnt moving anymore, like they do with alien, terminator, halloween and Nightmare movies. I actually think TDK should be the last movie. Not because of the plot but I think Nolan put out such great 2 movies that he shouldnt tinker with the story anymore., I think 2 is just the right balance

I always said that TDK would've been perfect if it was the third film and that the conversation he had with the joker at the end would've been a perfect way to end it because he and the joker are like the perfect relationship...but nahhh if he does die then the batman as a movie franchise will die for a while because every1 would think he's dead and that they'll be trying to bring him back from the dead

They just did a Batman dies type storyline for the last year in the comics. From a character perspective, it really didn't serve a purpose other than to allow other characters to try new things in Batman's absence.

Here's what I think they should do.

After The Dark Knight Rises, have a "Batman Beyond" film. Make it gritty - futuristic, but not toooo fantastical. It will bridge the gap between Nolanverse and a new more fantastic Batman universe. Then after a Batman Beyond film or two, return to the classic Batman with a new series.

Even if Batman dies in this incarnation they can always reboot the franchise, again.
If this is the last Nolan movie, they will probably reboot it anyway.
So it should end with Bruce going to the circus and let the fans speculate forever how it would have turned out.

But Luscious should be the protagonist. Nah, let them both be the protagonists!

As long as it works in the film.

Many fans might be angry if Batman dies in the next film, but truth is comic-book fans are still a minority in the overall movie-goers. Especially outside of America.
Many ending-elements that work for comic fans won't work for average movie-goers who never read a comic book in his/her life, including: Batman faking his death, Batman doing his job forever, someone else taking up his mantle...etc, and especially "Gotham would always need Batman".

I don't really care whether Batman dies or not, as long as it works in the content of the film. But if the story really "ends", then please let Bruce hang up the cape.

Hell no. No matter how "great" Nolan is, this is something I wouldn't accept. Even if the movie turns out good I'd still disagree with this decision, no matter how it's written. Not like it's going to happen. The last I checked, the title of the movie isn't The Dark Knight Dies.

Batman should die in the next film!

Absolutely. It would be one of the best storytelling decisions in cinema history.

No it wouldn't. It would be a cheap gimmick.

I agree, it is cheap. How many times must a story end when the main character dies? I don't get why a legend must die in order for the story to conclude. For example look at Batman 1989. There was no need for another Batman movie because the story felt like it was complete. We witnessed the Dark Knight actually rise and become the trusted hero of Gotham.

And everyone thought the Joker died way too soon in Batman 1989. I don't agree with it but the only thing that can possibly top that is having Batman die after a couple or few years on the job. I mean.... really? I know he's human but he's supposed to be trained to avoid death. I always viewed him as the highest trained person in the world to take on all obstacles and almost appear as supernatural and immortal because of everything that he learned.

I really don't think that Batman will die.
