Elseworlds means not within the continuity of the main comic titles. This is not within the continuity of the main comic titles.

Frankly, I'm almost rooting for them to kill off Batman. It would be an incredibly ballsy move, that would be remembered for a long time. Also, if certain speculation is to be believed:
then it plays perfectly to the theme of Batman being more than a man, but an ideal and a legend. It would be a perfect way to end this trilogy.

The next Batman movie is going to be a reboot anyways. No matter what, Batman will be alive and well and played by a different actor with a different crew behind it. It will not follow the continuity established in the Nolan trilogy. So, by all means: Kill Bruce Wayne.

I think I could live with that, actually.

If they do it i'm going to resent it. That's all there is to it.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

I miss really good, well crafted almost artistic posters for movies. This one? Just seems boring and generic, something anyone could whip-up in Photoshop inside of an hour.

Not every movie poster has to be Drew Struzan in originality, quality and art but it really seems like movies don't even try anymore to make a movie poster "artistic" anymore.

Anne Hathaway still makes me cringe every time I hear her speak of dialogue

The costume makes me cringe. How people can take the character seriously while he's wearing a hat suit in which he can't even turn his head baffles me, frankly. The Dark Knight, for me, was corny as hell.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

^Do you mean the Batman costume? Wasn't the whole point of the costume change in The Dark Knight that he now can turn his head?

Yet another good observation for why not to it.
Better yet is that it's a reason against that is tied to the story of what it means to become Batman. Even if you have training not everyone is cut out to be Batman. Jean Paul Valley anyone? And I like Azrael.

Re: The Dark Knight Rises Anticipation Station

Here is my theory. Batman will appear to have "died" at the end of the movie so Bruce Wayne can get back to a normal life.
