I can count only three superhero movies than have been game changers and have brought something really new to the genre: Superman the movie, Batman and TDK.
Exactly. Sometimes it can be down to even blind luck, when all things just happen to fall into place, your in the right place at the right time. Like the Beatles or Nirvana or something similar to that.

The viral marketing at the time, the way the world was back then, the fear of terrorism and CHAOS and Nolan just happened to tap into that. Its either genius or luck or a bit of both.

I'm not saying its perfect, I'm sure somebody will real off a list of plotholes and nitpicks, but no CBM is, hell nothing is but its as good as "serious" comic book movies have gotten to date I feel.
