Oh ok mr producer. Sorry but the story calls for something else. What would be the point of sending her away only to have her already be back in Gotham when the sequel starts? You may as well have kept her in Gotham. Where's the impact when she returns? Why would she even come back after what she experienced? And why would she return during the middle of a bloody power grab that she seemed to not have any interest in? At least delay her comeback for dramatic purposes and give a damn good reason why she decided to split Bludhaven or whatever city she fled to. I do think she'll have an important role. Hell, they may even market the sequel around Batman and Catwoman as the second lead. But within the context of the story? It doesn't make much sense to me. Especially when you know how sneaky Selina is, what kind of an opportunist she is. She’s going to wait for the right time, and Matt probably knows that fans are expecting her to be elsewhere since the final scene will be fresh in everyone’s mind. There's also so much you have to do with Bruce socially, bring ppl up to speed on what’s been happening in the city, introduce new characters, what the plot and "detective case" is going to be this time. At the very least she's a no go for the first act. Second act return minimum. If there’s a second lead, I’d vote Gordon.
