I've never been a big fan of Nolans films. He seems to be more focused on being clever and thought provocative than fun. This is a guy that wanted to take away the cape because it was too unrealistic! Imo thats the entirely WRONG mindset to have when making a superhero film. He should be thinking about the "I'm Batman" Jokes and how Batman is like Chuck Norris, we the audience shouldn't feel like we're sitting in class, we should feel excited to be watching Batman. Imo Iron Man was the perfect balance of realism, humor, and superhero action/adventure. The Dark Knight is a very well made movie, don't get me wrong, but it's just not what I'm looking for when I'm watching something like Batman.
