Another route, and no one's discussed this, would be to treat the series like the Bond films. Bale and Nolan are done? Fine. Replace them but continue the continuity of the films.
That's not like the Bond films. The Bond series has no overarching story or character arcs. Nolan's trilogy has a beginning, middle, and end, and it ends with Bruce Wayne retired and a definitive statement that he has to stop being Batman. There's no way to continue with the continuity of Nolan's Bruce Wayne without spoiling Nolan's story.
