Christopher Nolan: Superheroes fill a gap in the pop culture psyche, similar to the role of Greek mythology. There isn't really anything else that does the job in modern terms. For me, Batman is the one that can most clearly be taken seriously. He's not from another planet, or filled with radioactive gunk.

Christopher Nolan: I never considered myself a lucky person. I'm the most extraordinary pessimist. I truly am.
Christopher Nolan: I think there's a vague sense out there that movies are becoming more and more unreal. I know I've felt it.
