WOW are you telling me..Nolan rebelled against the ultimate fan...the one who controls his every decision ...Jett?
Seriously though, I think "fan influence" only matters for a film the size of (for example) Begins or Hellboy or Underworld, where serious fans (and word of mouth in the sci-fi/comic fan community) make up a high ratio of who sees the movie. When a movie is as hyped up and big scale as TDK, it attracts enough casual fans that it doesn't matter anymore about pleasing the hard core. Its just a blessing that Nolan did stay true to the comic fans when he no longer needed to.
