Marvel tries to capture the essence and feel of the comics, similar to what Raimi did with the Spider-Man films (in which the camp was true to the Silver Age comics). The Marvel Studios films might be less "campy", but they still feel like comic books. Which is fine. It's two different approaches. The illusion of realism that Nolan went for with the Bat-trilogy makes perfect sense, because that's the way many regular action movies are handled.
And simply because Batman is a real man with no absurd powers. I would have never wanted to see Batman face someone like Clayface or the comic book version of Bane in Nolan's trilogy.

But now that we got this amazing trilogy out of the way, bring on a more stylized, Arkham-like series.

I'll be there... around every corner, in every empty room, as inevitable as your guilty conscience...
