Just like Batman Begins inspired Iron Man 1. I don't know how intentional it is with Iron Man 3, since I heard they were planning to go back to more of an Iron Man 1 feel of putting Tony "back down in the cave" feel for Iron Man 3 before TDKR was released. But Favreau was very open about Batman Begins being a huge influence for the first film.
I do think it's cool that a Batman film is being said to have influenced such a time honored franchise like Bond. It must be pretty satisfying for Nolan, considering he injected a lot of "Bond" into Batman as well.
