Yet that's just what we got with the last pair of Sherlock Holmes and 2 Bond movies.
The RDJ Sherlock Holmes movies aren't an origin. The first film opens with Holmes and Watson an established duo and Watson contemplating retirement.

The origin from the '89 film, which I still love as a Batman film over the Nolan films, should be the way they go next time. Batman is just such a backseat secondary character in his own films with Nolan that I'll be glad to get back to having Batman as the star of a Batman film.
I don't know how you could argue that. The Burton films were totally about the villains. Nolan's first movie was so revolutionary because Bruce was actually the centre of the movie; the later two had larger casts, but were still far more about Bruce than any of the previous Batman movies.
