Re: Is everything copying TDK?
Everybody's definitely gotten into the whole "villain lets himself be captured to continue master scheme from the inside" bit after TDK.
Loki in The Avengers
Silva in Skyfall
Khan in Star Trek: Into Darkness
All have an interrogation room/detention cell scene where they mess with the hero's head(s) that's very reminiscient of TDK, imo.
Though I think it was originally inspired by The Silence of the Lambs. The Batman-Joker interrogation room scene has shades of SOTL, imo.
He's a silent guardian...a watchful protector...a Dark Schloss...
