What they're trying to set up is a DC Universe franchise, and there's no way they'd do that without Batman being an ongoing part of it.
I agree, but I think they can do that with the new Batman appearing only in team movies, rather than investing in a new series for him.
Why in the world would they do it that way? Batman is the only superhero who's been consistently viable as a live-action film property for Warner Bros. in the past 30 years. I can see them using him, Superman, or both as anchors for other superheroes' films, similarly to Nick Fury's role in Marvel, but there's no way they'd put a moratorium on Batman solo films. He's their cash cow, uh, bat.


Along those lines, if they are getting a brand-new Batman for the role, they could veer a little more in the direction of character actor rather than leading man...
Isn't that what Christian Bale is?
