Default Re: Iron Man 3 vs Man Of Steel

Avengers was made for kids, TDKR was the better film for adults.

Avengers made so much because of the kids. Avengers won the box office, TDKR won the critics
Avengers made so much because it appealed to both kids and adults. You don't make one and a half billion on kids alone. and Avengers won critically as well. IMDB collects general moviegoer consensus, not critical consensus.

Actually, Avengers is an action movie, TDKR is a drama.
They are both action movies. Watch an actual drama, then may you know that TDKR isn't a drama.

Alan Moore on comics:

They've lost a lot of their original innocence, and they can't get that back. And, they're stuck, it seems, in this kind of depressive ghetto of grimness and psychosis. I'm not too proud of being the author of that regrettable trend.
