I think it is less realism, and more about grounded plausibility. Nolan's Batman wasn't all that realistic, but it was grounded and stuck to some ideas and rules that allowed it to be plausible.

It is kind of hard to take emotions seriously as you are watching ridiculous stuff like the train sequence. oh look, Logan is suffering on the inside. But then there are ninjas and Logan blowing stuff up with his claws again.
