I loved the ending of Rises too, but I'm certain JGL won't be Batman in JL they've already stated that the Batman in JL will spin into his own movies and they aren't gonna continue on from the Nolan series.

That's what I would do suggest if I was in charge at least.

Edit: Damn, saw the rumor has been debunked already. That was a short time I got to dream.
It's not debunked. We can still dream

I agree with you. Slowly introducing a superhero like Superman in that world for the first time in MOS will have a lot of impact. And then even more-so with JLA. Then slowly a possible Batman movie starring JGL, they can add something to the stylistic look of Gotham, since it will be rebuilt after Banes attack.

This. I think the deal is Batman should always be in charge. Sometimes, to create suspense, it should not seem that way to the audience, but then he comes up with a contingency plan etc.

With that, it could be a very impact-full event when Bruce actually don't know what to do, or how to handle a threat.

I wouldn't mind JGL/Blake as Batman in a JL movie. As long as they give him a lot of the same character traits attributed to Bruce. He should at least have a relationship with Lucius/Wayne enterprises. The lack of training can even be addressed by making Blake a slightly more tech-reliant Batman. In fact, this can somewhat compensate for Batman being able to stand alongside the rest of the Justice League.

"He's not a real character" or "He's not Bruce" are weak reasons. However, I can see how this can affect the legacy of the Dark Knight trilogy. Then again, I do not see how a DC movie-verse would contradict Nolanverse if they simply point out that the events of the Dark Knight trilogy takes place before MoS or GL.

In fact, the League of Shadows, the fear toxin, the Microwave emitter, the fusion reactor, and even the Bat are somewhat fantastical elements that exist in the Nolan-verse.

My feelings exactly.

I have zero interest seeing a non-Bruce Wayne Batman interact with Clark Kent. Zero.

This would be so much better if JGL was playing Bruce Wayne, or if his character was named Tim Drake or Dick Grayson...This makes sense from a financial standpoint but I still dont like the idea of a Batman in Justice League not being Bruce Wayne. Bruce and Clark are the reasons people will see this

Let's hope so. Im surprised the reaction here is so mixed? The appeal of Batman is that he is Bruce Wayne.John Blake doesnt even exist in the books. Id be more cool with this idea if it were Dick Grayson or even Terry McGuiness.

Reboot Batman in Justice League, with BRUCE being Batman not Blake. Plus, isnt this movie supposed to spin off a new Batman series?

Who the hell wants to see a John Blake solo franchise.....?

If JGL is Bruce ? just cast him as Bruce Wayne in JLA and then Reboot the Batman franchise with him AS Bruce not John Blake.

ps : if you accept the Nolanverse or in general the DC Cinematic Universe after Batman Begins as the Ultimate Universe with changes to the characters it wouldn't mind a different Batman or a different JLA for that matter if they did it right like Nolan did with B-Man. Its gonna be hard for the GA to even understand what is going on but the fans will know.

He can't go from been one main character in a .batman film to been Bruce Wayne/Batman in another, not gonna happen in a million years.

I personally don't see what the appeal of a Blake Batman is, but everybody has their own perspective . Like i've said before, to me, it just seems so cheap and lazy. Its holding on to a francise and continuity who's time is over , and trying to milk it and keep it going because they're afraid of starting a new again.

Its over . Its time for WB to cut the cord and let Nolan's francise and versions of characters rest. If anything JLA should be a chance to start fresh , not to keep hanging on to the past.

This idea... makes me unhappy. I rarely get this way over news, but if there is gonna be this big event team up JL movie, I don't want to see Robin Blake interact with Clark Kent. We haven't waited years to see a Batman/Superman interaction only for one of them to not be their original character.

Now I'm not gonna shut myself away from this totally. Time will be more telling. But right now I don't like this idea at all. Move on from Nolan. Blake, despite being a variation on Robin, is a Nolan character anyway. Blake as Batman was presented as advancing the idea of the symbol. I dont think the intent was to actually see him being it. Blake, who we've seen in only one movie as a supporting character is gonna join these guys? He just isn't as interesting as the idea of Bruce in these scenarios as of now. My God, give me Armie Hammer as Batman, not this.

While I understand 110% why people would of hated that the first JL didn't even had Wayne as Batman; I would of liked to of seen what could of happened with Blake as Batman in JL. I do prefer Wayne, though. I just thought this could of been interesting.

I think the rumour meant that JGL should have played Bruce Wayne and not Blake in JL. People seem to confuse the actor with the character in TDKR.

Just playing Devil's advocate (I'm still undecided about how I feel about this), but isn't going back to Bruce Wayne "hanging on to the past?" Utilizing the John Blake character would be a pretty ballsy move on WB's part.

Take Batman Beyond for instance. I'm sure it had a lot of naysayers in its time with a Batman who isn't Bruce, yet its become a somewhat beloved part of the Batman mythos.

Whether or not Blake is a "character from the books," one should note that Nolan has probably had a larger impact on the Batman mythos amongst the general public than the comics have as of late. Who do you think the general public might be more familiar with: either Tim Drake/Damien Wayne or John Blake?

However, even though continuing Blake's story could further crystallize the importance of Nolan's trilogy, it can also equally **** on his legacy if poorly executed.

John gordon levit is not a right fit for either bruce or batman. What i had hope that he was going to carry on the mantle as a defender of gotham with his own persona ala nightwing or robin. If they decide to use him the backstory would be that during batman's hiatus from crime fighting he adopted a young john blake who went decided to enter the police academy at age nineteen. This is why he became a cop he knew who the batman was from the start. If nolan is somehow involved with the film bale would also be available they can say that when bruce returned he became the head of the new organization that was placed after his presumed death.

Why should JGL play Blake in JL just because he played Blake in TDKR?
Nolan's story is finished, and the actor JGL is not bound to be Blake forever in a Gotham setting. Especially not if it's going to be another director's take on Batman.
You, along with others, have a very limited way of thinking.
I guess some people think Maud Adams played Andrea Anders in Octopussy, and that Scaramanga's mistress came back to life somehow.
