Re: Tdk vs Avengers
I credit Nolan with bringing that potential into the film medium, since you bring up the comics as a separate medium. Much as a deride IM3 for its lackluster characterization of Killian, I can give it credit for trying to set itself apart from the rest of the MCU.
"..the mere intimation that there might be more to a heroic narrative than the heroes are the Good Guys, the villains are Bad Guys and the heroes should Win a rousing Victory appears to be in itself such an offensive contention that it arouses a kind of defensive knee-jerk hysteria just by surfacing." - Richard K Morgan
