Christopher Nolan On Bringing Bruce Wayne's Story To An End In TDKR

The director speaks about wrapping up his Batman trilogy, making it very clear that this will be The Caped Crusader's final flight. He also reveals that the "great ending" has been planned for a while..

Will Batman die at the end of The Dark Knight Rises? That's the question on everybody's mind when it comes to the final installment in Christopher Nolan's trilogy. It might seem silly to even suggest such a thing, especially considering the fact that though this may be Nolan's last Bat-flick, Warner Bros. will will most definitely not be done with the character. But this is Nolan we are talking about, and if this movie is to be the finale of his bleak vision of The Dark Knight, many feel that he will give us a bittersweet ending - perhaps involving Joseph Gordon Levitt's mysterious John Blake and a "passing of the torch"? Anyway, it's all just speculation at this point, and one thing is for sure, we won't get a thing from Nolan. However, while speaking to Total Film Magazine the director does make it clear that TDKR will be the end of Bruce Wayne's story at least, and reveals that whatever they are planning for the character has been on the cards for years..

"Our telling of the Batman legend has always been centered on Bruce Wayne's story. We somewhat left the audience hanging at the end of the last film in terms of Bruce's story and we want to bring it full circle and have a complete tale. We've a great ending we've been wanting to tell for some years now. We're just thrilled to have been able to bring our story around to its conclusion."
