It's undoubtedly the worst. I can't think of anything that was worse than that.

It's not. Calling this a Superman trilogy is like referring to The Incredible Hulk, Avengers, Avengers:Age of Ultron, and Thor:Ragnarok as the Hulk Quadrilogy. Yes, they all have some of the same characters, but they each set out to tell different stories in different ways.

If it's a trilogy it's trilogy about nothing.

Chris Terrio hinted at it being a trilogy. Nobody at WB or DC seem to be correcting him so people consider it Supermans trilogy.

And the better comparison would be the Captain America trilogy.

Either or... it's still one of the worst sequence of 3 movies that is based on superheroes.

The Cap comparison doesn't really work either. I've never heard of CA:The First Avenger-Avengers, and CA: The Winter Soldier referred to as the Cap trilogy. An ensemble film is a different animal.

And I'd argue that last statement all day long. I wouldn't put MOS-BvS-JL atop the multi-appearance landscape with the likes of Cap's trilogy or Raimi's Spider-man, but the modernized cinematic Superman was something that was long overdue.

I think its the most like the Matrix Trilogy.

First movie is an origin centered on the main character becoming a savior.

2nd movie expands on the universe of the hero, shows us what he means to the people of that world, Introduces(or Re-introduces in this case) us to the Hero's Nemesis, Ends with hero basically dying in a way.

3rd movie is about friends rescuing/bringing the hero back to life so that hero can save the world.


Call it what you want but MoS, BvS and JL are totally structured like a trilogy

The Cap trilogy is the one comprised of his three titular movies.

Why are you against calling the Snyderology a trilogy? It literally is.

Trilogy definition:
- a group of three related novels, plays, films, operas, or albums.
- (in ancient Greece) a series of three tragedies performed one after the other. *
- a group or series of three related things.

A ghastly trilogy is a trilogy nonetheless.

The Blade trilogy has a third movie where Blade is not the sole protagonist and the three movies are quite different one from the other.
But trilogy anyway.

Most of all, the hardcore Snyderistas have gone on for years now about this being a trilogy. Make of that what you will.

* One could argue MoS, BvS and JL ARE tragedies, for WB's finances and notDCEU, but DC, fans.

Quote:
Screenwriter Chris Terrio says Man of Steel, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, and Justice League are all "one saga," with Batman v Superman being the darkest.

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice is much darker than Man of Steel, Terrio said, because the middle film in a series is traditionally the darkest.

"Batman v Superman is a bit of an Empire Strikes Back or Two Towers or any similar middle film in a trilogy," Terrio told the Wall Street Journal. "I do think from Man of Steel through Justice League, it is one saga really." And because of that, Terrio intentionally lightened up when writing Justice League.

Nope, the *actual* Cap trilogy--TFA,TWS,CW-- is the greatest super hero trilogy ever. Even with the 3rd film having an unusually large collection of heroes, Cap was still the central focus of the film. In Avengers, he was just one corner of the story like Superman was in Justice League.

Sorry, my fault, I was totally unclear in the way I posted my thoughts: I meant why are you against calling the Snyderology a trilogy?
Considering what a trilogy is by definition.

Meh, we have tons of people on here that consider civil war Avengers 1.5. The bottom line is that unless WB's makes or at least announces a MOS 2, Justice League completely finishes Supermans story arc. Supes lack of screen time only emphasizes how terrible a trilogy it is.

In a genre, where we have Spider-Man 3, Blade Trinity, The Last Stand, etc., it's kind of easy to say that the Cap series is at worst second best.

That's an interesting question, actually. What do you guys view to be the BEST superhero trilogy?

I'd say it's a tie between Nolan's Dark Knight Trilogy and the Captain America Trilogy. I'd give the edge to Nolan but Rachel Dawes was... not a great love interest and TDKR had a few too many plot holes (still a great movie). And I like all three Cap movies but the first one felt a little too campy and goofy in certain spots.

Nah, that honor easlily goes to the TDKT, which I like as well. It contains perhaps the dumbest movie to be heralded as so smart by so many people (I don't think the Snyder fans are numerous enough to qualify). Not many tries to compare the Cap movies to the greats in movie history so the hype is not nearly as laughable there.

Spider-Man 3 is better than Spider-Man 2, and the Last Stand is rather good, I don't get the disrespect those two movies get to this day.

Which is the best superhero trilogy is tough. Many of the franchises that started off strong stumbled on the third outing (Spider-Man, X-Men, Blade, Superman). Even Dark Knight Rises, which I don't hate, is easily the weakest Nolan Batfilm. Third installments are notoriously difficult to pull off for some reason.

When I did this thread....

http://forums.superherohype.com/showthread.php?t=536297

I did it because if either the TDKT or the Cap Trilogy, they'd get the most votes and likely TDKT would win. So doing the 3rd best, you see that Spider-Man Trilogy is in the lead.

Nah.. TDKT easily the most overrated, and in my experience, of any movie trilogy. TDKR was a crap movie, AFAIC.
