Superman Returns is far inferior to Man Of Steel. Oh, and almost no one knows or cares who Nolan is.
First, there are those that disagree with the first statement. ANd second.. if no one knew or care about Nolan, then movies wouldn't use his name as a selling point. They do... so you really need to come up with an actual argument instead of "no they don't!". Inception, MoS, and even the final film of the Batman trilogy were heavily marketed with Nolan's name everywhere. His new film will be the same... so obviously, enough people care if the marketing departments of these films continually use his name so obviously.
When you have to supplement the name with 'Director of Such and Such Movies/Trilogies/Yadda' then that name isn't big enough. You'd never see names being supplemented for Steven Spielberg, Martin Scorcese or heck, Michael Bay. Yet Nolan's name was repeatedly supplemented. You have your answer.
