To me, WB/DC has only 1 great superhero film(Superman 1), 1 very good superhero film(BB) and 1 more or less ok superhero film(Superman 2). That's not a great track record in my book.
To me Batman
were great movies.
is very good.
is so-so, and entertaining, as is TDKR
but the more I watch it the less I like that one. Especially since it is like BR with it's nearly absentee Batman.
The rest are trash.
I kind of agree with your overall assessment of WB/DC. Especially since Batman has kind of proved to be well received in most all of his media adaptations, it actually seems like it's harder to make a bad Batman movie than a good one (so far 5 have been better than average, and 2 have been bad, also the 1960s Bats and cartoons have all been fantastic).
It seems like if it ain't Batman, WB doesn't know what they are doing.
