    Don't think I've seen this one before, at least in my time here.

    Both are often regarded as the best origin story movies respective their companies and came out close to each other. Which genius billionaire playboy philanthropist will come out on top?

    Loved Batman Begins, despite its flaws, but Iron Man is just in a class above almost every other chm - certainly whey other solo origin chm - only Dr Strange comes close.

    BB and its not even close. BB is a great origin story and is like my 3erd favorite CBM of all time. Iron man on the other hand is one of the most overratied CBM of all time not even a top like 20 CBM.

    This is a good one. I'll have to think about it. Both suffer in the third act, like most origins.

    It's a tough choice. Begins is the best Nolan Batman movie imo, but I think I'm still going Iron Man due to RDJ's iconic performance.

    Begins is my favorite entry in TDKT, but I have to go with Iron Man here. The Yinsen-Stark relationship is one of the all time CBM greats, and beats out Al Ghul-Wayne.

    Iron Man. They're both great movies but Stark's first outing grabbed me more.

    Both are in my top 10 CBMs but I haven't watched either of them in many years. My gut reaction is to go with Begins

    My two favorite superheroes' origins story head to head, eh?
    Well, perhaps, this isn't as difficult as I thought it would be as I read the title.

    Iron Man, through and through, is much more of a fun and enjoyable film.
    Everything that Batman Begins does, Iron Man does twice as good. I also feel
    like Iron Man has many more triumphant moments than Batman Begins does.

    I have to go with Iron Man. Sorry Batman Begins.

    Batman Begins. It's the definitive Batman origin film. Nolan even pulled off a two-villain scheme and it worked beautifully.

    Iron Man is a fine film, but the climax does leave a bit to be desired.

    While Begins still looks great, portions of Iron Man don't look as good ten years later.

    Right now it's at 19/19. Dang.

    Iron Man is one of my all-time favorite movies. It has some of the best pacing I've ever seen in a film, not a single scene drags or feels wasted. It's anchored in a legendary performance and got me interested in a character I otherwise have completely ignored. The fact that fifteen films have followed it and there's still a strong argument to be made that it's better than any of them is seriously impressive.

    I love Begins, but it's my least favorite of the Nolan trilogy, and is brought down by shakycam action sequences and a script full of clunky Goyer dialogue.

    Begins hit the jackpot on every level, cinematography, set design, acting, score, script. It's the definitive Batman movie.

    Iron Man is a very good movie, though.

    I have to go with Iron Man. RDJ had such an iconic performance as Tony Stark that even changed the comics, and it's just a very well paced and enjoyable ride with that character.

    Batman Begins is good competition though, and the best Batman film there is.

    Talk about a though choice. For once i won't choose... It's a coin toss for me.

    Batman Begins for me but not by much. I feel BB has held up better though despite being 3 years older than IM.
