Default Iron Man 3 vs Man Of Steel

Before people come and complain that its futile to compare the two, they're comparable in the sense that they are beloved comic book characters with promising movies coming out from both of them this Summer.

That being said, vote on what movie you want to see more.

And this is a place to talk about who you think will win the box office!

Edit. I forgot to post a poll, if someone could edit this thread to have a poll asking what movie people want to see more that'd be greaaaat

For some reason, I'm thinking of the fat kid from the Tropic Thunder viral video who saw Iron Man three times.

This is similar to "The Avengers" vs "The Dark Knight Rises" last year...a battle that's still unresolved among the fan community.

Man of Steel has Nolan (producing this time instead of directing) and is DC.

Iron Man 3 has Iron Man and is Marvel.

I dunno. Hopefully both of them are so great that it can inspire argument like it did last year.

Heh.

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

edit: Avengers beat TDKR's score on Rotten tomatoes, but TDKR beats avengers on imdb

Both movies are fine. TDKR was an entertaining mess and Avengers was fun, but nothing spetacular.

Man of Steel looks like a good movie. I hope it is as good as it seems to be.

IM3 will win the box office, and I think it will also be a great movie, but I'm most looking forward to Man of Steel.

I'm looking forward to Iron Man 3 a tad bit more not because of Marvel or Iron Man, but because of Shane Black. MOS looks fantastic, but I feel trepidation in regards to the pacing of the film and the dialogue.

I certainly have more faith in Shane Black than I do in Zack Snyder or David Goyer, so I can't blame you there. But for someone who considers Superman her #1 favorite hero and has never once even liked a Superman movie thanks to a severe distaste for the Donnerverse, MoS keeps looking more and more like the Superman movie I've always wanted. So the excitement level is uncontainable on that one for me, regardless of my feelings on Snyder and Goyer's previous films.

Iron Man 3 is the movie I'm most looking forward to and I think it will be the better movie by far. It will also win the box office battle. Early buzz from the UK press is insanely good, with journalists actually complaining that they're not allowed to print positive reviews yet. That bodes very well for the film's critical reception and box office prospects.


MOS will do what it does. It's a thrice-told tale painted in dark hues, like WB's other superhero films. No doubt it will do well, but it won't be as successful nor as satisfying as Iron Man 3.

lulz. who was the main villain in iron man? a guy in an iron man suit?

who was the villain in iron man two? a man in a faux iron man suit with a bunch of other faux iron men?

what's special about iron man 3? more iron men? that's original.

Iron Man 3 is the seventh movie in a very successful franchise, debuting at the start of summer. It's going to win the box office. DC has some really incredible icons, but they haven't built them up in the film world yet.

I think Man of Steel will be the greater movie, but when it comes to the box office...I'm sure Iron Man 3 will win it. Looking back at the past IM films and how even IM2 did, I wouldn't be surprised that IM3 demolishes the box office when it comes out. Man of Steel will be lucky to do really well being the first film and what not as reboots don't do that well in the BO.

I agree with this, I just complained to all my friends that
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
Mandarin
is supposed to be The Joker to Iron Man's Batman, the twist
Spoiler!!! Click to Read!:
doesn't do justice to a character who is supposed to be Iron Man's arch nemesis


I feel we know too much about Iron Man 3, so my anticipation for IM3 is less than that of MOS, which we barely know anything about.

MOS will win both the box office and with critics. Marvel is on it's way down with their inabilities to take chances. IM3 has no buzz. I don't care what numbers they put out with big or small MOS will beat it

Doubt it now. Critics liked Iron Man 3 more than MOS, more than likely MOS will be crushed on 4th July weekend by Lone Star, so I highly doubt it's going to go anywhere near the dollar intake of IM3.

As for now, I liked IM3 while I pretty much left the theater hating MOS. I don't know what the hell that was, but that was not a superman movie to me. But in the end, STID is still my favorite movie of the year. Hell, I like Hansel and Gretel, Witch Hunters more than IM3.

Iron Man 3 will definitely win the box-office. The lead character just appeared in the most successful movie last year, so its a given.

Both will earn exactly 1 Billion dollars box office and tie for Best picture at the oscars.
