Marvel tries to capture the essence and feel of the comics, similar to what Raimi did with the Spider-Man films (in which the camp was true to the Silver Age comics). The Marvel Studios films might be less "campy", but they still feel like comic books. Which is fine. It's two different approaches. The illusion of realism that Nolan went for with the Bat-trilogy makes perfect sense, because that's the way many regular action movies are handled.
Yep. The 'realism' of the series is exaggerated to such a massive degree when Nolan never really subscribed to that level of realism. Microwave emitters, 6-inch heel acrobatics, walking around with half your face burnt off, etc., as others have said. The core elements (Ra's Al Ghul's 'immortality' (I still think that Ra's was a title for the leader of the LOS, rather than a name) Batman's arsenal, Joker's smile) are all brought to a believable level.
