Although with the reception the Dark Knight is getting, I can see DC Nolanizing the Batman comics in the near future just like they're Donnerizing the Superman comics.

I think that is a huge testament to Donner's film. I always get a little frustrated when people bash Singer with comments like "Singer only knows the Donner universe. Or STM is all the research he did."

STM and what Donner did was another spin on the mythos and clearly made people fans of Superman. As you said hippie, it has made an impact on comic writers as well.
