I consider MoS and BvS to be the best CBMs next to Nolan's TDK, so it's the best duology for sure, but since Whedon's cut of JL is so far from Snyder's vision (#robbed ), I cannot comment on the trilogy thing.

BvS kills the trilogy. Such a poor portrayal of Superman.

Stick around. You're entirely entitled to have that opinion. None of us Snyder detractors will tell you to shut up, or throw a hissy fit because you don't agree.

I’m never going to understand how fans of these characters ended up liking these films, at least the first two anyway.

The Matrix trilogy comes close, I think. But a lot of people like the first one. There are a lot of similarities, though. Pretentious movies that try to be smarter than they actually are, pseudo-philosophical post-it notes under a thick layer of crowdpleasing visuals. Then again, one could argue that the Matrix movies are not superhero movie in the sense that they are CB adaptations.

At the moment I struggle to come up with another trilogy as bad as Snyder's. It is a good question that I can't answer yet. I have the tendency to say, "Yes, it's the worst", but I'm not sure if I'm missing something
After a nights rest and sleeping over this question, I voted 'yes'.
I can't think of a trilogy worse than Snyder's. even though Whedon tried his best to at least redeem Superman, it wasn't enough in the end. JL still suffered from Snyder's miserable 'vision'.

If MoS , B v S and JL are a trilogy then here's my thought:

MoS : not great but not bad, did a lot of things really right and a couple of things really wrong. Had the balls to break away from the Donner films
I liked a new take on Superman, Lois Lane ( not fooled by glades, at last)and Krypton and the Smallville battle stands up even today, as a great chm action sequence.

B vS took everything that M o S did well and chucked it out in favor of a badass but kind of dumb Batman, utterly joyless.

JL took everything MoS got right and made it corny and a bit disjointed. Got the heroes largely right but a mediocre film otherwise.

Sooner or later they'll get it right.....oh wait, they did with WW, now lets think what's the big difference between that film and the other three I've mentioned, do I need to keep going ?

Really? I thought Rises didnt do a better job being faithfull to the characters than the rest of the Trilogy.
If anything Rises did a even worse job with Bane and Talia for example.

But i guess different people like different things.

It's set in the past? idk

WW suffered from the same visual aesthetic in a couple of action sequences as the rest of the Snyderverse, imo, even though Jenkins did her best to lighten it up. Also: Ares. There is a truly good film, not great, but solid, completely destroyed in its last 15 minutes. If WW ended with the death of Ludendorff and Dianas realization that humanity is totally capable of starting WWI without being influenced by Ares, I guess that movie might be the best genre movie WB did since TDK. But that unnecessary ending with the terrible CGI and the watering down of its message... I want to like the movie but this ending really makes it hard

Rises suffers due to Nolan’s desire to finish the Batman story once and for all. In doing so, you have to fundamentally change an aspect of Batman’s character.

Every filmmaker who has tackled Batman has brought their own agenda to the films they’ve made, and in doing so have altered aspects of the character to fit that story telling agenda. Nolan handles it the best, though. It’s only really Rises where his story telling agenda affects the characterisation in a negative manner.

Snyder hasn’t got a clue who Batman is, beyond reading The Dark Knight Returns, which he probably only read because he’d run out of Heavy Metal.

Quit trolling. You know very well that jmc' comment was about Snyder's DCEU movies, not Nolan's movies.

Actually no i dont because his post is thrown in without context and the previous topic was about Nolans movies.

I don’t how else it could be interpreted given the name of the thread, and the fact the first two Nolan films are universally praised.

I dont know, people have all kinds of opinions.
I thought you meant Nolans Trilogy because you seemed to add your opinion to the little thing about the Nolan films above, sorry my bad.

Blade Trilogy is probably the worst imo.

(I also don't really care about the Iron Man or Captain America movies. Enjoyable for the most part, but none of the movies have really meant much to me)

Same... I know it's well regarded, especially around here but I hate the Raimi movies. It's impossible to like a superhero movie when you find the lead actor to be incredibly annoying in the part, even more so when his co-lead/love interest is equally annoying. Those movies are just cheesy.

Also going to go ahead and say it, this Snyder trilogy is better for me personally than the Thor trilogy. I liked the first Thor, but the sequels both stunk. Dark World just sucks, and Ragnorak has a few cool action sequences that rival pretty much any movie but overall is just a silly comedy, that's not even actually funny. Basically everything with Hela in it is good, the rest mostly stinks.

Not to say this Snyder trilogy is great, it's far from it. But Man of Steel is one of my favorite CBMs, BvS is average at best and Justice League is just OK, but I still enjoy those 3 movies more than the Raimi or Thor trilogies.

I still love the first two Blade movies, so I can't call the trilogy bad. It helps I like Wesley Snipes, vampires, Ron Perlman, and GDT.

Also, for the greatest single line of dialogue in history, in the first movie.

Blade 1 and 2 are great movies. They alone don't make the Blade trilogy even a contender for worst trilogy.

How can Blade being mentioned here? I'd take the 3rd Blade over BvS as well.
