I have pretty much addressed the other part of your post on my reply to Octoberist.
Doing more of the same is not being inspired. It's copying.

Sorry but there's no fact here, just opinion. All TDK did was have a great story. That's why it's so good. It is a great film. Iron Man also had a great story and was great. But to say either raised the bar quality wise is just not true. Before TDK films were being shot the same way TDK was and they are still now. Just because a couple of scenes were shot in IMAX doesn't mean raising the bar. Actually, I would say that Nolan senseless stubbornness against CGI actually held back many scenes from greatness. Any intelligent director should know CGI can be put for good use. TDK was lackluster in terms of visuals in many ways and the best we got was the truck flipping and it was awesome just because....it was done for real? Err, it's a movie no matter what so.
