I may sound like a fanboy, but it was an absolute honor and pleasure to have someone like Nolan work on such an iconic character as Batman. I was such a big fan after Memento and Insomnia (hadn't yet seen Following). When I first saw BB, it was just a few minutes into the movie when I felt it was something special. Then when I reached the training montage on the ice, I absolutely knew.
