As speculation swirls about the next step for the Batman franchise - in particular the possibility of Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the cape and cowl - Christopher Nolan has explained the ending to his Dark Knight saga.
The final scenes of The Dark Knight Rises indicated that police officer John Blake, played by Gordon-Levitt, had inherited the caped crusader's mantle.
But Nolan says he was not necessarily setting up a continuation of the storyline.
He told Film Comment: "For me, The Dark Knight Rises is specifically and definitely the end of the Batman story as I wanted to tell it, and the open-ended nature of the film is simply a very important thematic idea that we wanted to get into the movie, which is that Batman is a symbol. He can be anybody, and that was very important to us.
"Not every Batman fan will necessarily agree with that interpretation of the philosophy of the character, »
