Probably Ironman by the width of a piece of paper. Both had issues, the third act of IM was a bit weak but RDJ owned the character, MoS had better villians but story was thin in places.

Is there a third option for about equal?

Iron Man is put up among the best among the genre. MoS will never be in that category.

Iron Man, easily. I'd even go as far to say the entire Iron Man trilogy is superior to Man of Steel.

Man of Steel for me, Iron Man's really good but the finale was a huge let down for me. It got all corny too with the villain.

Iron Man.

Second to Batman Begins, it's probably the best 'origin' movie for me.

Not that Iron Man did bad in any of those categories, I just felt MOS did better.

I agree with all of this. They're both up there with Batman Begins for me.

Hmm, a barely passable reboot vs. arguably the best superhero film ever made(for my money it absolutely IS). Nah, too easy.







But it's Iron Man by like,...the width of the United States.

Hell, I think even the worst Iron Man movie(IM3) is better than MoS.

I don't think Man of Steel is as good as any of the Iron Man movies, let alone the best one.

Iron Man, and by a not small margin. Honestly, every one of the IM movies is better than MoS.

I really like Batman Begins but frankly both are significantly superior to it in my unpopular opinion ( Saw Batman begins this week too MOS made me hungry for superhero flicks)

Iron Man is one of the most critically acclaimed cbms of all time. MOS doesn't even begin to approach the critical and audience reception IM1 got. Iron Man had better pacing, a better story and the lead actor was exponentially more engaging and charismatic.

Iron Man. Better lead, better story, better love interest, just better.

Granted, Superman: The Movie, Spider-Man (2002) and Batman Begins are better than both. But that goes without saying for me.

The first Iron Man easily is better than MoS.

I thought Iron Man 3 was a much better film than Man of Steel, let alone the first Iron Man. This should be a largely one-sided poll. A better comparison would be Man of Steel with films like Iron Man 2 or The Amazing Spider-Man.

I'm a Superman fangirl, but IM easily wins this. Not even a fair fight, really.
