Perhaps. Even with the Scarecrow though, they transitioned into the Joker as being the new villain. So there's precedent for making the jump fluidly.
I think you might be on to something as a possible romantic relationship. Given how they played up Bruce's vulnerability with Rachel in the first two movies, her death could play a role in how he interacts with Selina.
