Most fans are convinced that the ending to The Dark Knight Rises means that the Nolanverse will continue with JGL as the new Batman, Azrael, or Nightwing. However, when speaking to MTV, the actor says that no one had approached him at any time during production about suiting up for future films:
Honestly, no, we never talked about that. And honestly I know a lot of people talk about the ending of that movie being a setup for a sequel but I don’t think that’s necessarily what it is. It’s a great, perfect ending for that trilogy.

Here’s a great fan made photo of a hypothetical Nolanverse Nightwing.
Not bad. I wouldn’t mind seeing something like this in a movie with a Batman Beyond twist, Bruce Wayne coaching his protege from a distance. However, as far as I know, Warner Brothers is set on rebooting the franchise in a few years with Bruce Wayne as Batman .
