So in other words, you think the Riddler should be something he's not? Look at the past movies, Nolan does add a bit of a darker twist on the villains, but fundamentally, they're still the same villain inside.
And, Nightwing, is Robin, and Christopher Nolan has said time and time again Robin does not exist in his Batman Universe.
Why does he not want Robin to exist? Because he doesn't want a kid cheesing up the place. Skip ahead 20 years, and he's an adult. It's a completely different story. I'm not really saying what I think will happen, I just think it would be cool. It would be a great transition for future Batman films.
As for the Riddler, It would alter a bit by making him a murderer instead of just doing petty theft or stealing intelligence with blenders. I think the silly side of him would have to go anyways. That definitely wouldn't fit in with the Nolan universe. He'd still test everyone's intelligence. It would actually be some sort of detective work in the series. If it's not something like this, I would love to see the Hush storyline.

Nightwing wasn't just Dick Grayson. IIRC, though, Nolan and Bale are only signed on for a trilogy and Nolan intends to conclude the story with the third film.
This is what I've heard too. Which is why I'd rather forward the timeline by 20 or so years, because different actors will be in it, most likely. And they'd be able to tell the older Batman stories. I seriously doubt this would happen, but a geek likes to geek out every now and then.
