    I was thinking about it and I think in the third film they should kill batman off. And if they did kill him off, I would want him to die doing something heroic. This would be a good choice I think. Because for one it would end nolans batman franchise so no one else could continue making them from his movies. And it would add some drama to the closure of the franchise.

    It'd be an interesting idea, as well as really drive home the idea of Nolan's Batworld being "realistic'. It, like any idea really, all depends on the way it's done.

    I'm not really against this. The movies are different from the comics. You don't keep making the next 40+ years movies about a character and have him engage in new adventures over and over again.

    But he shouldn't die in his own Movies, if the JLA franchise ever happens, I could see him sacrificing himself. In the cartoon he often did things that almost cost him his life.

    I'd be happy with a simple batman 89' style ending with him standing on a rooftop looking up at the bat signal, maybe Alfred saying he's proud of him and his father would be proud of him or something before hand.

    They did kill him off when they hired Val Kilmer to play him in Batman Forever

    then Christopher Nolan brought him back to life.

    How easy we forget

    I think I have to agree on Kilmer. All went just fine, then suddenly he started to smile, that's when Batman died.

    The fact that most people are againts the idea is exactly why comic book fans should steer clear of putting their input in to FILMS.

    Films are hugely different in their dynamic to comic books, many of these people are happy to jump on board a sub par franchise(pick almost any film franchise, go ahead!), just to see the same characters they like etc, even if their outing is terrible.

    Comic book fans love pledging alleigence to a character etc, the notion of being a 'fan' is more than just about the overall quality etc. So even when the comic gets bad, they still buy it just because. this lack of a new for quality makes that audience happy to see hundreds of spiderman 3's or fantastic four 2's etc, just to keep thier notion of fandom, rather than limit it and have one good film. Just look at half the threads here: "How would you do (such and such) a franchise/trilogy" etc etc.

    Quality is rarely the issue it's more like "more batman please"

    Simply put NO! even if they decide to end the franchise i wouldn't kill him off. I mean look at James Bond. the 'character' being immortal works
