The one done with all real miniatures and props and costumes just feels much more real and relatable, and therefore our main concern becomes the characters, not how much the movie looks/feels like a fantastic unplayable video game with some live actors inexplicably in that world.

Nolan tries to capture of the source material, but not by trying to simply put a comic book on the big screen. He uses the source material for inspiration, but tackles the execution like he would any other movie. 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.
Excellent posts, you two.

I think another way Nolan's take could be termed as is 'veritability'/'verisimilitude'. I don't think it's ever been meant to be seen as full-blown realism though.

Amen to that.

Ever since my first viewing, I thought that line was rather weird, but yeah, I definitely think it can be seen in both ways.
