Batman would win a war. If he has enough time to set his shit up the way he wants it, I think he could defeat Superman, let alone Iron Man.

But you can't get around the fact that Iron Man can walk up to him out of the blue and crack his skull like a walnut. Seriously, you cannot dance around that fact.

Without sufficient information, I have to side with Iron Man. Because Batman would require a certain set of conditions to defeat him. Iron Man's good to go as is. He could throw down right now. Batman would have to spend a bunch of time strategizing just to give him a fighting chance.

But there's no question who has the better movie this year. Iron Man was okay. It had it's moments. Solid movie. Worth the price of admission. Sure.

The Dark Knight is going to completely ruin everybody's shit. It will fucking. SLAY. Total domination by any and all standards. History will forever after be divided into pre-TDK and post-TDK. No argument is possible.


hell yeah

the batman returns was good aswell

The Green Lantern would destroy both of them at the same time. Pfft.

I consider both aspects when judging a movie.

A good movie EITHER has artistic merit, or makes money.

A great movie does both.


Bologna. To me, a movie making money is like a basketball player being really tall. It's a good quality, but does not affect greatness.

Casablanca didn't make all that much money. Shawshank Redemption did mediocre at best.

In order for a movie to be great without the money aspect, it must be exponentially greater in terms of merit, as both of your examples are.

I'm telling you, it's a solid way to judge movies, dude.

Neither Batman nor Iron Man can go toe to toe with Harvey Two-Face.

Superman.


Regardless of how much he sucks, or how much you hate him, he would win.


He is in-de-fucking-structible.

The thin line between genius and insanity is less of a border than a union.

Fuck you!

I will just shove a cryptonite stick up his arse and he will be useless.

Superman has no real value. Unlike Batman.

On that same note, Superman once gave Batman a piece of kryptonite in case he ever went crazy or anything and needed to be put down.

Superman knew that of all the superheroes, Batman was the one who could pull it off.

It's a way to judge success, but success isn't quality. For example, here are a few of the all time highest grossing films:

#3. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest
#5. Pirates of the Caribbean: At World's End
#7. Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace
#14. Finding Nemo
#20. Shrek the Third
#27. The Matrix Reloaded
#43. Night at the Museum
#47. Home Alone
#70. National Treasure: Book of Secrets (this one is still making money, so will go up the list)

Some movies which aren't in the top 100:
Casablanca
Shawshank Redemption
American History X
Braveheart
Batman Begins
Schindler's List
Silence of the Lambs
The Godfather

Batman Forever made $335,000,000 while
Batman Begins made $352,000,000 Do you really think that has any indication of their comparitive quality?

Braveheart is #322 onthe list.

I agree with Rain in the above aspect.

Just because they made a lot of money doesn't mean they're any good. I mean, just look at The Matrix Reloaded! It sucked! And what was the deal with the huge bogan underground party at Xion, anyway?

It was to demonstrate their 'humanity' by doing something the machines could never do.
