Re: Is everything copying TDK?
I actually don't mind that big franchise action movies keep getting compared to TDK. It really speaks to the legacy of the film.
What disappoints me though is that I havent seen much anything on the same level of TDK. Skyfall maybe, but it didn't really transcend in the same way TDK did. Avengers was good, but it really is apples and oranges compared to TDK.
If anything, I feel like Marvel Studios is the new cool kid that everybody copies or that fanboys want for other companies to copy (DOFP, ASM starting a shared universe, "why can't DC/WB use solo films to build to Justice League?")

Dr. Walter Bishop: Do you have any cocaine?
Peter Bishop: Cocaine? No, I don't have any cocaine...
Dr. Walter Bishop: Oh - That's too bad. You'll have to shock her heart then.
