    "After that, well, why wouldn’t the people running the game think everything should be very, very serious from now on? The unattached WB executives just have to look at Dark Knight’s numbers to justify that. The people inside the comics bubble could maybe affect some changes, but superhero books seem to often attract guys stuck in perpetual emotional adolescence for the same reason CEO’s are more likely than average to be psychopaths, so there’s an upper limit when it comes to getting a real interior push for change from that status quo. And on the surface level, the numbers back it up: Batman Begins changed the game; half-heartedly copying the Marvel model with Green Lanterntanked their initial plans for a shared cinematic universe. Mimicking the Nolan Batman feeling with Man of Steel might not have made gangbusters compared to Avengers, but it certainly did better than jerking off to the memory of the Reeve/Donner films with Superman Returns."

    Nolan's film played to the strengths of its subject(s).Now the DC/WB films are sark for the sake of being dark.It's like they bank on everything being dark and badass to compensate for an actual story and character development .
