  1. Nolan trilogy isn’t Knightfall at all. Bale didn’t take on the entire gallery in one shift and then get rocked by Bane. The only real similarity is the back breaker which is overdone. Weak offering by WM

  2. Since I personally *didn’t* read any of the comics that these films are based on, I instead choose to judge them *on their own* independent of their comic-book counterparts. And I’ve discovered that I truly *enjoy* most (if not all) of these films just as the films that they are.

  3. Marvel- 7 entries on this list
    DC- 3 entries on this list

    …now tell me which is the “better comic universe” again!? Batman or Superman alone are more well known and the basis for everything Marvel has ever done. As for “we don’t care about this Superman” clearly forgot the whole premise of Man of Steel and BvS as it shows the toll it takes on someone to be a superhero! Marvel is all about special effects and action shots, whereas DC takes the time to show what it means to be a beacon of hope to the world…but to each its own.
