I believe a superhero movie will never be considered serious enough by the members of the academy for true consideration. Furthermore, if TDK didn't even get a nomination for best picture, I find it difficult to believe another superhero movie could actually win.
It really depends on the film but I don't really see it happening any time soon. Superhero films tend to be made as blockbusters with a ton of entertainment value and action, not as potential Oscar bait.

Super Heros and Sci-fi will never win a Best Picture award, a very big maybe would be Best Adapted Screenplay. I think LOTR is the closest anything of the sort will ever win Best Picture.
He who is certain he knows the ending of things when he is only beginning them is either extremely wise or extremely foolish; no matter which is true, he is certainly an unhappy man, for he has put a knife in the heart of wonder.
