This would not be a very good idea.

Maybe Bane will break his back and paralyze him for life forcing his retirement or it will simply signify an end to the overall story and themes Nolan is trying to tell. I am betting on the latter.

The results could cause a chain reaction that would unravel the very fabric of the space time continuum, and destroy the entire universe.

I like this idea, The nolanverse is what it is, a completely different continuity from the comics, they do have the luxuary of ending the story, which they don't have in the comics. I think it would be a potential dramatic goldmine to effectively end the batman story in the 3rd film. Even if it dosent mean killing him off, giving us an ending that would "end" batman would be quite satisfying. As for sequels, they are obviously going to continue the franchise outside the nolanverse and with a different actor playing batman/bruce wayne, so it obviously wouldnt be affected by any of it.

If Batman died in the movie, I travel to WB's office and ask for a refund.

I'd rather see him fake his death if Nolan was going to go down that road, and they could pay homage to Dark Knight Returns with Bruce leading an underground revolution to ensure that Gotham will always have a Batman to protect it (maybe he could try to train the Sons of Batman characters seen in Dark Knight).

Then we'd end up with Bale playing John Conner all over again.

I'm cool with that... so long as WB continues the franchise with Batman Beyond.

Whatever happens...let's get a director who actually makes Batman matter again and presents the character PROPERLY and makes the film about HIM...not Harvey Dent.

I won't particularly mind if they do kill him off, and it could be done pretty well.

But I just don't think that the plot is going to lend itself to that.

Think about it. The whole world is going to hate him at the start of the third movie, because he's taking the blame for killing a load of people, including cops. The movie going from there to him dying at the end just doesn't seem right.

I still think it can be done really well if it's handled like it was in the DKR comic...with one final apocalyptic battle to save the city, and with Wayne secretly surviving to train a new breed of secret crimefighters...like starting up the league of shadows again under his own tutelage in the Himalayas or something. Could make for a nice 'the war goes on' closing chapter. Albeit, an alternate take on the mythos...with martyrdom et al...but still the potential for some good storytelling...as well as further cementing the self-contained originality of this trilogy.

That's not actual death though, just Bruce faking his own death.

That's what I mean though...for all in tents and purposes it could be the death of Batman, per se...certainly in the eyes of Gotham (with his identity as Wayne revealed as well). But he secretly lives on in a different role, sorta' like in DKR. So a death in a narrative/plot sense without having the characters physical body/mind die, so to speak.

I see the film starting off with a memorial service for Batman in front of city hall, with Gordon giving a speech in front of a tribute statue of Batman. Then we go back and see the events leading to that, ending the film back at the memorial after he's 'died', talking about his being Wayne and giving up everything for the city, etc. Then end with Alfred on the phone, talking with Wayne who's in the Himalayas, training a new League Of Shadows..and end the film. Something like that.

LOL@the people over-exaggerating by saying"IF this happens then I'll go to WB and ask for a refund"/"Blow up Nolan&Bale".....YOU won't do **** But ***** on here for a very long time!.

This new Batman-movie universe belongs to Nolan!IMO,Nolan started it and I'd love for him to finish it in his own way,IF Batman fakes his death or actually dies in sacrafice then I'd be ok with it.

WB will most likely continue with the Bat films in a few years after the 3rd film even with out Nolan&Bale!.....Which I wan't a new director to do his own universe and IF it's more fantazy/crazy/fantastical like some of the comics then it would be an even better idea IMO to end the Nolan Bat movies in such way like an actual trilogy!.

Even more so than nipples on his suit/Batman credit card and pretty much other stuff happening in the Bat movies?????.....(A shark attacking Batman's leg in the 60's movie/Alfred letting Vickie Vale into the Batcave/Catwoman&Penguin's origins in Returns/Two-Face&Riddler being so over the top/The whole Batman&Robin movie).
