Boringly realistic? I would like to know exactly what scene Joker was in that was boring to you? Also, Batman is the most popular human superhero and of course if it's going to be made in a more realistic way. I'm sure the majority would agree that making a decent realistic film is better than a cartoonish one. If you want something not realistic, watch the cartoons.
Except I don't watch comic book movies to see them be boringly realistic.
The Joker is a psychopath, technically his only appeal is that he takes joy in causing harm with the whole joker theme. Christopher Nolan took a realistic look at the character and it's not like he didn't play with his victims, he just did it in a more sadistic way. I enjoyed the grittier version of the Joker, the scarred smile, smeared make-up and filthy hair with bits of green, the whole amoral attitude. It's not a good idea to pull back a character to cartoonish propotions, especially not for a academy award winning film director.
