The third alternative is an ending that is not an ending; that is, Batman is still out there, but the third film wraps things up thematically somehow. That does leave more wiggle room for a non-Nolan fourth picture to suggest it's a semi-sequel, though.
This is what I'm hoping for, and what I would imagine Warner Bros. would want, too.
Not me - give us a real ending to the story please. As Alan Moore notes in his introduction to The Dark Knight Returns, it's impossible to have a great story without a great ending. This has potential to be a great story and it needs a real ending. Something that absolutely cannot have another chapter. I'm talking a "Louis, this looks like the beginning of a beautiful friendship." and "My dear, I don't give a damn." kind of ending. A done, character irrevocably changed forever ending. That would be unexpected and courageous storytelling, and Nolan has shown he has that skill by ending TDK the way he did.
