    You've been treading that fine line for a few days now but that comment seals it.

    You're a troll.

    So because YOU were disappointed it deserves to fail? Please.

    As you yourself stated, those who love the film and enjoyed it far outweigh those of you that didn't. No need to be bitter about it and wish the film to do poorly because it didn't meet your expectations. Whether it be box office or simple fan polls.

    To wish it to 'lose' because you didn't like it is...petty.

    I don't wish it to loose. I said it deserved to because Avengers is a thousand times better.

    So I am a troll because I find an enormous amount of flaws in this movie? LOL Give me a break dude.

    I still give this movie a 7.

    ps: I`m way more of a DC fan than a Marvel one.

    Superman is my favorite character, probably like you.

    LOL, see I knew I wasn't the only one lol. I skip a day and I come back to fine someone else suspicious of your troll ways lol.

    UaalaDa...where you come from lol.

    Both movies were good and both movies had flaws. Both movies served different purposes and provided different ways of entertaining. I think both were a tie, because they both did different things to be entertaining.

    Superman? I like Superman, but to say he is a great character as powerful as he is meh. I never liked Superman because I always knew he would win in a fist fight and could only take so much of him being outsmarted lol.

    TDKR is way better than just a 7/10 You basically gave the movie a D rating. Yeah, dude you're trolling lol.

    Naw, I'm pretty cool that's why I'm putting 'lol' after everything because I'm kidding for the most part. However, when I saw this^^, my attitude changed.

    Captain Marvel would hand Superman his breakfast. Captain Marvel matches Superman and he is only a kid. Just think what he would do if he was an adult. Not only could be beat Superman physically he could outsmart him with the wisdom of Solomon.

    Quit trolling lol.

    Didn't seem like a match in Kingdom Come. He clearly lost the fight. And he wasn't a kid.

    Superman just didn't crush his skull with his hand because....he's that good.

    But hey, I love Captain Marvel. Wish WB would make a movie about him. It's about time. But Superman is that dad of all superheroes. No match. None would exist if it wasnt for him. NONE. So, show a little more respect. :D

    Oh and btw...we're cool.

    Batman would exist. And Batman would kick his butt! lol
    Detective Comics came out what 1-2 years after Action Comics. Batman rules, that's why he has more movies, and more cartoons.

    As far as Kingdom Come. I've seen Marvel win a few fights myself, if I recall correctly.

    Superman is the poster boy so of course they will find a way for him to win. I like Superman. I'm a fan when he is done right and not overly powered and super unstoppable all the time. But Capt. Marvel is a boss. He only came out a year after Superman

    Oh and he is super powered wherever he goes. Superman can't do anything without a yellow sun lol.

    Captain Marvel surely deserves more recognition and a movie. Even a new TV series and cartoon.

    It's foolish to try and say whether Avengers or TDKR are a better film. They are both excellent, 5/5 IMHO.

    Avenger's captures a much larger idea of the superhero - it's essentially about mankind thrusting itself into a new era of prosperity, where we have to band together and realize our greatest strengths to defeat powerful enemies we have never and could never have imagined before.

    TDKR is a realistic, character piece about a man who sacrifices everything for the people around him and overcoming his own personal, mental anguish while defeating forces of HUMANITY which threaten to break society at it's core.

    Both are incredible movies with incredible takes on what it means to be a superhero. They are both near perfect films, but very different in approach. When you say one is better than the other, you are not looking at the movies objectively. You are expressing opinion. Don't express opinion as fact: that is bothersome to many.

    Of course, all of this is just my humble opinion. Some people may not be able to see in these movies what I have, so they will mean different things to different people.

    It's true, I would rank both Avengers and TDKR 5/5.

    Article says it was a clever fanboy and that the crowd made their own signs. I'm not so sure, seems like exactly the kind of easter egg nolan would leave for us to pick up on subsequent viewings. at the very least i think he must have seen it in the audience and loved having it has something to throw in the movie.

    ps i'm a huge robin fan, i'm the younger of two brothers and have kind of always felt like the sidekick in a way - i loved seeing any reference to the character in the nolanverse and appreciate the realism nolan brought to his spin on the boy wonder. fan-friggin'-tastic

    this may also be one reason why i am so happy with the ending of the movie.

    I agree completely.

    TDKR actually made me appreciate TA even more due to the complimentary contrast it creates.

    i actually didn't get any "creepy vibes" from the whole Batman-Robin relationship in the shows and comics until I got a little older. i'm just now realizing that it's possible I didn't look at things that way because my view of their relationship was informed by own relationship with my brother.

    always seen them as more of a "older brother/younger brother" dynamic

    All these theories were bortn because of that stupid psychologist who said they were gay. That book Seduction of the innocent that is the most load of crap written about comic books.
