Anyone who was going to the TDKR has gone or will be going regardless.
As for the Wall street article I take that with a grain of salt, most of their numbers are pulled out of thin air or their butt...As for the TA word of mouth was the major factor in its huge success and explosion during its opening weekend...not 30sec TV spots...
And you're pulling most of your remarks out of delusional fanboy land, and I don't advise you to continue this pattern.
We don't like the Marvel vs. DC nonsense here at any time, and considering the events of this weekend, it's particularly inappropriate to pat your movie on the back for having a better opening weekend.

Would you like to take it out and ask it?
’Should we honor our treaty, King Louis’ head?’
‘Uh, do whatever you want, I’m super-dead!’"
