Man of Steel was directed by Zack Snyder. Nolan only provided story (didn't write it) and produced it. I never hold filmmakers responsible for their producing credits. They really don't get to make a lot of the major decisions, especially if they're just one of several producers, as was the case with that film.
Yeah, I don't see any of his films ever reaching that kind of terribleness.
Not saying they have a lot of influence, but the Silent Hill live-action movies have a lot of the same producers from the Paul W.S. Anderson Resident Evil movies and look eerily similar in many ways. I know it's the outlier, but those films had noticeable producer influences.
