This is my personal list. I'd like to see what others come up with. Here is what I don't want to see happen in the movie.

-James Gordon killed off: I love the character and it would be cruel punishment for a guy who took a huge a chance and allied himself with guy who dresses as a bat.

-Catwoman/Selina Kyle romantically hook up with Bruce Wayne.

-Talia al Ghul: I know all about the online rumors, but I really don't know what her role would be except to become the mother his son.

-Alfred killed off: Same reason as Gordon except more so as Alfred supported his crazy employer's whims and mentored him.

-The Lazarus pits: They don't seem fit Nolan's gritty reality.

Any other ideas?

Catwoman/Selina Kyle romantically hook up with Bruce Wayne. Why Not? it who he belongs with.

@OracleX: James Gordon, Lucius Fox, and Bruce Wayne will all either be irreparably injured or killed, in my opinion.

Batman surviving

I don't want Bruce Wayne to physically die. I want him to mentally die; for the personality of Bruce Wayne to be 100% gone, to the point where there is only Batman and Bruce is nothing more than a mask. Yes, they've hinted at this, but he hasn't made the complete transformation. Rachel was his last tie to humanity. If there is a romance with Catwoman or anybody else, it should be for Batman, not Bruce.

@HolySerpent: Well Nolan said somewhere That He wants to end the movie in a way that couldn't warrant a copy//spinoffs etc. So death would be pretty final. nd more realistic. I could one person survive so long fighting criminals solo.

  • Bruce Wayne the mask, Batman the person clichés.
  • Conversations and soliloquies from nonessential characters (guards and citizens on the boats, the old man in the water district).
  • Corrupt cops, social-climbing mobsters.
  • Scarecrow, Robin, easter eggs.
Batman dead and unmasked would paint a pretty picture for the people of Gotham given Wayne's wealth and seeming apathy. I have no objection to this.

Talia al Ghul. At all.

I'm not sure I can really think of anything. The themes in his films are fairly predictable, and not in a bad way either, but I know what to expect to see in the film and what not to expect.

Like I wanted Harley way before any details were released but I knew that wouldn't fit Nolan's style so I never expected it. Likewise I expect explosion, Bat vehicles and the same drama, action and pretense I've come to expect from him.

I do however want a hard exotic blood letting sex scene or ten between Batman and Catwoman with many gratuitous shot's of everyone's bare bodies and butts, and maybe, no wait, definitely Tom Hardy thrown into that equation at least once and stripped to his....sigh, RARG!!!! But I digress, see Nolan's style.

I don't want to see Rachel's grave, or any mentions of her at all.

I don't want to see young Bruce Wayne waking up at the bottom of that old abandoned well and realizing that it's all been a fever induced nightmare caused by exposure

A movie without Bane's venom. If Nolan's "gritty reality" doesn't include this then why have Bane as a character at all.

@Bogey: Interestingly, in most of his comic book appearances, Bane does not use venom. He gets off it after Knightfall.

I don't want to see Joker.

@HolySerpent: I do. If you remember what Dent says. You either die a hero or live long enough to see yourself become the villain.
