Exactly. The Batmobile is the prime example of Nolan explaning something that didn't require it. The audience does not need to be convinced the Batmobile could exist, the audience buys the ticket, they already want to accept the Batmobile. You don't go and see Star Wars and then say, "Hey, I don't buy all this 'Force' stuff."

There is no Marvel/DC rivalry. Most of the great comic creators worked for both; Jack Kirby, Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Walt Simonsen, Gil Kane, Steve Ditko, John Byrne, Steve Englehart, Mark Waid...even Stan Lee.
