Christopher Nolan delivered. This movie is incredible.

What I'm saying is that he still would have been within the blast radius of the nuclear bomb. That may not be true though. After thinking about it, my initial reaction may have been a shade too harsh. While I think it was the worst of the trilogy, it was still very good. I think I'm going to have to see it again to get a better grasp.
I also loved the implications of the Robin or Nightwing Begins ending. And I liked that he wasn't named Grayson or Drake, as that would've given away the surprise (and it was a pretty great and well handled surprise).
DARKKNIGHT said:What does everything think WB should do with the Batman franchise after the dust from Rises settles? I hope that they don't decide to have Blake be Batman in future films. While this was a fitting end to Nolan films (the idea that Batman is a symbol, and Bruce never wanted to be him forever), I really think Batman is strongest when he is Bruce Wayne. So, what does everyone think? Will they reboot or follow the Nolan films? Will we even see Batman solo films in the next few years or will he be included in some sort of DC universe/JL film before that?

I think they should wait a few years and start releasing a series of one-off Batman movies with loose continuity ties à la James Bond. No need to reboot or explain whether or not they take place in the Nolan-verse, just make some cool movies.
However, if they wanted to continue the story, they could come back to Gotham a few years later w/ Blake established as Batman and then invent some reason for Bruce to return and reassume the mantle and demote Blake to Nightwing. That could work, but it would probably feel disrespectful to Nolan's conclusion in TDKR and who knows how many of the actors you'd need to replace.
