Its *because* the Nolan Batman movies did good. . . and thus whatever characteristic can be attributed to them? Is a useful prop for DC fans to try and claim why their movies are "better", in the face of Marvel's rather self-evident superior success. Sure, DC can barely get a movie out the door. . . but Nolan! "Realism"!
well to be honest Marvel and their partner studios have taken that word too...it was the catch phrase on Amazing Spider-man and Thor and Cap and IM3
