I may be forgetting some, but probably not. The only movies I can recall seeing in the theaters the past 20 years or so have been (and there's kind of a theme) Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, The Dark Knight Rises, and then some movies I took my kid to see (Batman Lego movie where I fell asleep) and one other one that I can't remember.
Generally, I hate going to the movie theaters for some reason. Probably not being able to talk for 2 hours is annoying. Also, for a movie like the joker it's not a kid movie so we'd have to get a babysitter which classifies it as a night out which then means 2 hours of not talking on a night out which are rare enough already.
Watching at home after the kids go to bed we can at least pause it and talk or just talk while it plays.
That said, I agree with your original post and think the Nolan Batman movies were the best, by far, screen adaptation of comic book movies. If that makes me a square, so be it.
