I might characterize the Nolan films a little differently. They were obviously a clean break from the Burton/Schumacer films, but it's not hard to see the influence of several comic book stories in all three of his Batman movies. I think the general public responded positively cuz there were decently made film rather than the half thought out hack work that some of the other DC movies were.

In some cases it's super obvious that the filmmakers didn't understand the source material, heck in a couple cases they've even said so...
