Wally Pfister, the cinematographer on Christopher Nolan's Batman saga, has admitted he is not that fond of the superhero genre.

Pfister - who has worked on all of Nolan's movies since Memento in 2000 - was nominated for an Oscar for Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, with the trilogy's closing chapter The Dark Knight Rises released this summer.

Speaking to students at Ringling College of Art and Design in Florida, USA, the lensman was asked what genre he preferred working on and responded: "I'm not a big superhero fan. In terms of the moviegoing experience for me, I love the realistic stuff because it's just that much less formulaic. When I was first approached by Christopher for Batman Begins, I was like, really? A guy in a rubber suit?"

He said the film he most liked working on was The Prestige and had also enjoyed the scope of Inception, »
