2005 saw the start of Infinite Crisis. After several miniseries and events leading up to it, the universe is reshaped again as a means to streamline continuity again.

Christopher Nolan's Batman Begins premieres, rebooting the movie continuity from the Burton/Schumacher movies and the Catwoman debacle from the year before.
