Re: Tdk vs Avengers
The great irony in all this is Marvel are heading more toward the Nolan Batman approach in making superhero films if Iron Man 3 is anything to go by. It's not a film that's trying to be a superhero movie, it's very much a movie that just happens to have a superhero in it, it's a film that did it absolute best to move beyond whatever Avengers did, in fact I'll go so far to say the Avengers has given Marvel the chance to make films more in line with Nolan's approach to film making. They couldn't really do that beforehand in phase one so they had to tiptoe their way making conventional superhero movies culminating in Avengers. Now that Avengers is widely successful, more than they probably imagined, they can let their hair down and start making the movies that go beyond what they did before.
Fanboys make excuses, real fans acknowledge screw-ups.
