Throughout the week, we'll be presenting the Heroes of the Year, our list of individuals who made a major impact on the comic book movie community in 2012.
Round three is all about celebrating the end of a legend: "Dark Knight" trilogy director Christopher Nolan, who finished his run on Batman this year with "The Dark Knight Rises." Honoring the filmmaker is Bill Ramey, the founder of Batman-On-Film.com.
"Game-changer." That's the moniker that immediately comes to mind when it comes to Christopher Nolan and his influence on the comic book film genre.
With "Batman Begins," the director essentially created the "reboot" for left-for-dead film franchises. Since then, hitting the reset button on a movie series has become practically commonplace — i.e. "Casino Royale," "Man of Steel," and "The Amazing Spider-Man."
With 2008's "The Dark Knight," Nolan showed movie fans and critics alike that superhero films could, and should, be taken seriously. »
