I was actually talking about the success of the 2nd Nolan film.
Which is of course based on Miller's Batman (as pretty much all Batamn stories since DKR have been), so that's not really far off.
I loved Miller's take on Batman, but there was a reason for it. That was the character at the end of his career, so it made sense. I hate how he suddenly became that character in the DCU and DCnU.
