    IM3 will probably win the battle with critics, but the B.O. race will be closer I think. :wow:

    IM3 will win the box office but MoS will be a better film...not to say IM3 won't be good, I think it will be great. But I think MoS will be such a breath of fresh air for Supes it will be hard for IM3 to top it critically. Not to mention I think the action will be better in MoS.

    I feel like IM3 will take the box office, but for me MOS will be the more enjoyable film.

    Although I'm looking forward to both.

    That's a fan's perspective, many critics could care less. They'll be more clinical in evaluating these films and not get swept up in all the hype. I get the feeling critics may appreciate Black's genre subversion over Snyder's action sequence extravaganza....but we'll see. I'm expecting big things from both of these films, but I have learned to have a healthy dose of skepticism. Been burned far too often.

    Man of Steel might be more emotional, it might have better plot twists, it might even inspire more in people the world over.

    But Iron Man 3 has RDJ, and will win at the box office. Not to mention its part of one of the biggest, greatest film series in film history.

    I didn't mean that's the only reason why I think it will be more critically acclaimed. I believe the story, action, etc will be just more enjoyable than IM3.

    I'm looking forward to both, with the definite edge going to Man of Steel. However, in terms of box office winner, it's going to be Iron Man 3 that wins this round. Without a doubt.

    Man of Steel would have to put up absurdly high buzz in order to make IM3-sized numbers. Now, if it was the MOS sequel and IM3 going against one another... it'd be a totally different ballgame.

    MOS is one of the most anticipated films in a decade IM3 is a typical action blockbuster. Superman is ten times more famous than Iron Man and people are really geeked over this. Nolan name alone gets half of IM fans in the seats Superman alone will finish it off. MOS will beat IM3.

    i think it'll be close. i expect IM3 to come close to a billion, maybe even break that having the post avengers buzz, but after that third trailer, i expect mos to get close to that as well.

    Personally, I am more excited for MOS because it is a breath of fresh air. I am kind of worn out with Iron Man. MOS is something I have been waiting for since it was announced, and that's coming from someone who isn't a Superman fan.

    However, IM3 I think is in line to in the BO though. My friends that I talk to are more excited to see IM3 over MOS. Considering that it just came off of The Avengers, it seems like it will do better.

    For sure. I think most comic bookies are excited for the new and fresh that is MoS. Not to say we aren't excited for IM3...

    But the entire world is excited for Iron Man. So many people. Superman is a fantastic character who is unmistakably well known, but surprisingly difficult for a lot of people to like.

    BO-wise? I think IM3 will break $800mil worldwide but... I see MoS hitting around $600-700mil

    I think the Dark Knight (2008) and the Avengers (2012) were the most anticipated comic book movies of the decade, hands down. They were huge events that were celebrated on release and after.


    Between Iron Man III and Man of Steel, that's a tough call. I think all Iron Man III has to do is be better than the second and audiences will be pretty impressed. I don't see it being better than the first one or Avengers though. Ben Kingsly as Mandarin has potential to be really special. As far as box office goes, I think Iron Man III is gonna kill it. It's coming right off the great success of Avengers, it has RDJ returning as the face of Marvel's current films, I think it's going to do well.


    Man of Steel is a bit iffy. I'm excited but it's still up in the air. Too early to say what will happen. I LOVED the heck out of all the pre-release Superman Returns stuff back in 2006. The trailers were great (dare I say as good as the Man of Steel ones), the hype was definitely there. Then after the opening credits rolled it was apparent that there was something off with it. I sort of have that fear with this one as well. Hype is a helluva thing before going into a movie, it can sometimes break it for you.

    I'll have to see Man of Steel before I can make that judgement. Atleast with Iron Man we've seen what it's capable of in three prior films.

    You should edit your spoilerish post. Most people have not seen the film and won't like to be spoiled.
