Re: Tdk vs Avengers
I think there's people bandying about the term "realism" without actually knowing what it means. "Realism" isn't about taking away the fantastic; that's adding a sense of plausibility and versimilitude to the film. "Realism" is where people have the kind of reaction you'd expect to a certain situation.
@Sentinel: Nolan had the advantage of being able to make his own films, without being constrained by long-running plans or a shared universe.
