You act as if Nolan's Batman films were actually realistic. Show me again the water evaporator weapon that can skip over killing humans and neatly turn Gotham's water supply into gas. Also show me fear gas while we're at it. Or a clown who can sneak around Gotham without being seen planting bombs just in case people decide to do certain things he already predicts are going to happen. Also show me vehicles like the Batpod (complete with the turning spinning wheel move) that Selina just so happens to know how to pilot perfectly without ever touching before. Show me the secret society of ninjas responsible for every major cataclysm since the beginning of mankind. Also show me THE GODDAMN BATMAN!

Translation: Nolan's films are pure fantasy and the notion that it's some kind of realistic crime drama is asinine. The idea that Superman could never interact with all the things I listed is just plain silly. We're talking about Batman and Superman. Just because Batman is "gritty and dark" doesn't mean it's not fantasy.
Yes but when compared with the comic books, past movies and other similar characters like Captain America he is realistic, very much so.

The point is Nolan's Batman was watered down. Everything from his intelligence, his fighting skills and feats were attenuated. You can't have a watered down Batman fighting alongside Superman and Wonder Woman, it would just look ridiculous. You need a Batman who can fight like Captain America, Black Widow or Hawkeye, who's smart enough to build his own gadgets and who is worthy enough of the title of the worlds greatest detective.

Nolan's Batman struggled to fight the Joker's dogs and a Bane that wasn't even half the size of his comic book counterpart, to have him then fight aliens, demons or whatever the Justice League movie plans to include, would be such a preposterous jump that even the general audience wouldn't buy into it.
