Respectfully, I can support my opinion with facts. As I have done my research.
This should be good.

It is no coincidence that most of Nolan films are on IMDB's top 250. Why? because he has huge fan base.
Wait, did you just go from observation to conclusion without the intervening steps ? Yes you did.

A lot of his fans also forced rotten tomatoes to shut itself down because his fans (most of them young guys and teen boys) where sending film critics death threats after they gave TDKR negative reviews.
What does this prove ? ONE person making a death threat or a bomb threat is enough to cause trouble. How does this fact help us assess the number of Nolan fans ?

As a person who has a huge and even professional background in media, entertainment and pop culture. I will say that directors and producers and even the actors matter when it comes to a film's success.
I didn't say it didn't matter, but that wasn't your claim, that it "mattered". You said "The only reason why man of steel did so well at the box office is because the film has the Nolan name stamped on it"

(Emphasis mine)

You made an absolute, easily-refuted statement. It was shown wrong. Now you want to move the goalposts to try and appear like you said something else.
And that's my opinion.
