Batman quotes often seek to explain the popularity behind the Dark Knight. Christopher Nolan, writer and director of Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises, believes Batman's appeal lies in the fact that he is an ordinary man following his desire to make the world a better place. Unlike heroes with superpowers, Batman is simply a man who believes he can make a difference. "We all wake up in the morning wanting to live our lives the way we know we should. But we usually don't, in small ways. That's what makes a character like Batman so fascinating. He plays out our conflicts on a much larger scale," he said.
Neil Gaiman, British author and comic book writer, says Batman's fans are so loyal that they'll often overlook flaws in a story simply due to their love for a character. "The great thing about Batman and Superman, in truth, is that they are literally transcendent. They are better than most of the stories they are in," he said.
