Re: "The Dark Knight Rises" Review and Discussion Thread (spoilers)
I don't think so - who knows why Bruce Wayne would be drawn back to the Batman pesona ? And (imho) they've still got all of Batmans main villains to play with... Joker, Riddler, Penguin etc.
It would completely spit in the face of Nolan's whole tenure to bring Batman back after this movie. The whole point is that he's gotten his happy ending and there's a new guy on the job. There's no way a future Batman movie is going to be in the same continuity as this. It may not be a new origin story, but it'll be a different universe. Nolan worked miracles for DC, and he got to give his take on the character a definite end.
