Marvel has ample characters and storylines that can and have made good films. DC doesn’t have nearly as many, so they need to protect what they have. Nolan, Bale and Batman was a beautiful match and if you remember back to when they were looking for a director, fans were super excited about Nolan and were clamoring for Bale long before he was announced. I’m not saying WB needs to listen to fans on every single decision, but if they continue to ignore them, they’re sure to have a disaster on their hands.
