You know, you can be excited for both.Just saying......
It has always amazed me how fans of rival movies (ie Avengers vs Dark Knight Rises) can take so much pleasure at the prospect of the rival movie failing. I am looking forward to the Avengers waaaay more than DKR, but I want both to do well. And if DKR makes more money, that does not make Avengers a worse movie (assuming it is a good movie). I wish all movies could be great. One movie being bad does not make another movie better.
Put the blame on Quesada. He started this pathetic company war.
I had a reply, but someboyd censored it.
Anon @ 8:04 - Quesada gets blamed for a lot (and rightly so), but he didn't start the DC vs Marvel rivalry. That was going on before he'd been born.
Wait... people actually take sides in this, before seeing the movies in question?Bizarre.
That's rediculous! I LOVE batman, cannot wait for the DKR to come out. But watching the seperate Avengers movies expecially Iron Man and Thor, I can say I cannot wait for the Avengers movie either. Especially after reading the review saying it puts all other super hero movies to shame. :) So people can like BOTH. Silly boy, thinking he has to only like one!
The Avengers was awesome, I've seen it three times already (I live in the UK, so it's been out a week or so), but I'll probably have the same opinion of DKR - if, IF it's good. I'm more of a fan of Marvel characters, however I do like certain DC ones such as the Batman universe and Superman Red Son (not too fussed on the Superman thing as a whole though), and I enjoyed the Nolan films. I just hope DC don't shoot themselves in the foot and subsequently in the face when they do reboot the Batman series - I can see them trying to top Avengers with JLA and judging by past DC films of late (coughcoughGreenLanterncough), they might really need to work harder if they want to rival Avengers several years too late...
DC doesn't care about your hate, lady.
Who's hating, you dingbat?
DKR may do better at the box office than Avengers (and lets not fool ourselves- money is what they really care about) but in the end Marvel will win since DC made the baffling decision to use johnny-come-lately villain Bane to kill off the best character they have. Also, am I the only who thinks its stupid to call your film "Dark Knight RISES when he actually FALLS and dies in he film? WTF?!
It's called metaphor, kiddo.
No. its just called stupid when you kill off your #1 character. Fans don't want *another* reboot, of Batman OR Spider-Man. Give us a real, sustained series with 4 or 5 movies... and don't let J.S. anywhere near them.
Because... you can become more than an idea.. and ideas.. are bulletproof.Oh wait.. wrong DC / Warner hero. Kinda.. sorta.. not really. Nolan's Batman, going back to Begins, has that whole immortality theme. So even if the man dies, Batman lives on.Though.. in terms of other movies.. this character will not. And, yes, that is stupid for Warners in the grand scheme not matter how much I or anyone enjoys the Nolan films.
It was SO. GOOD. I didn't see the preview for DKR, but Avengers was delicious. Seriously, sploosh.
Just like politics, clearly you can only vote for one company. You can only like Marvel or DC characters. You can never enjoy both!Nor vote for a third party. Hellboy? Rocketeer? Ghost World? That's like picking Nader. Go ahead. Throw your vote away.
