It's a flawed comparison.
If anything it's closer to what WB is doing now with Man of Steel. Chris Nolan is mentoring Snyder's approach. Zack is going for a more realistic and gritty approach, as opposed to his usual stylistic crap.
It's not a flawed comparison. You try to to recreate the magic of someone else's style of storytelling and it could ruin the movie completely.
No one knows the advantages of Nolan-verse like Nolan himself. If someone tries to imitate his vision it won't feel genuine.
It's better to wipe the slate clean and try a fresh approach from a talented director and writer. Sky's the limit.
