There seem to be some people, for no other reason than their own unfounded hatred of Christopher Nolan, who spend most of their time on the Internet in a crusade to let everyone know that Nolan’s Batman films aren’t really that good. Quality is in the eye of the beholder, and if they really truly believe that, well, more power to them. I beg to differ. But I think Nolan’s trilogy is more important than just its quality.
The Nolan Batman films were one of the most valuable tools in getting respect for the comic book medium from a wider audience. Nolan tried to make this trilogy a great movie first, a great superhero movie second. He was able to wring as much pathos and angst from character as he could. The result is a weightier take on the character, which caused those who were only familiar with the BAM! POW! BOFF! era of Batman to completely rearrange their way of thinking.
This might be Nolan’s last Batfilm in the director’s chair, but he will producing the inevitable franchise reboot. Hopefully, Batman’s cinematic future will be as bright as his past.
