I don't think the title (which itself I still can't say I've grown to like very much more at this point) signifies much that wasn't expected in terms of taking the new setting and simply getting (or attempting to get) more thematically serious and a bit darker.

This is something the films have flirted with to varying levels of success and it's certainly something the TV shows mixed in during their runs as well. I expect the general idea is along those lines, to tell something a bit more involving and hopefully satisfying now the first one is done.

But I don't anticipate seeing Nolan levels of bleakness or depression (thankfully). That would be an unlikely level of tonal shift. Could be wrong of course.
