Re: Tdk vs Avengers
I've been saying this too much but the first time I saw someone treating a comic book superhero with such realism it was incredible was the TV pilot movie for The Incredible Hulk TV series - and I have to emphasize I am talking about the TV pilot only. The way Dr. Banner gets to the gamma radiation formula or the way he could have avoided the tragedy but couldn't, the way Hulk is seen as a true monster that ruins his life... and to think they'd take decades to get to that point again.
But I also think Bryan Singer did his share with X-Men.
Now, Nolan had it easy with Batman? Excuse me but if anything he made it look easy. The tone he chose for the movies could have easily gone terribly wrong, absurd and boring.
