The intricacies and perfect handling of all the plot threads in TDK I am sure was not an easy task, I don't mean it in that sense.
The tone he chose was a perfect fit. It just suits Batman better than any other character. And as a character, Batman is more or less already in a relatively grounded universe (Not speaking for the DC comics as a whole). People rave over the fact that TDK was this elaborate crime-caper, and not so much a comic book movie. But to me, a crime-caper comic book movie, about Batman, just makes sense.
