    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    This Batman/Superman movie shouldn't exist anyway so whatever.

    I think Affleck is okay but I'm having a hard time hearing him (visually, he has the look) as Bruce Wayne.

    DC/Time Warner continues to show that they have no idea what they're doing while Marvel is rolling in piles of money because they spent more than 15 minutes formulating a plan that consisted of more than "hey, let's smash Batman and Superman into the same movie, logic (and film continuity) be damned!"

    Marvel gets it - superhero movies have to be fun. They can only be serious and dramatic if you have brilliant storytelling. Action and laughs are the real money makers. It's what I'm hoping Fox realizes soon with X-men.

    Another advantage that Marvel has is that it's universe consists of real places instead of the fictional world of DC Comics (Smallville, Gotham City, Metropolis, Star City, etc.).

    They also have a deeper supply of interesting characters and villains. DC I very top heavy.

    Not that I am against top heaviness or anything......

    Well, no one thought much of Bale before the first movie.....I will give him a chance (if I even see it, I agree, Marvel gets it more than DC).
    Lighten up Francis....

    Unless it's the first Iron Man, Sin City, or directed by Christopher Nolan, every comic book movie is/has been terrible.

    Superman 1/2, V for Vendetta, A History of Violence, Batman, Avengers, Captain America, Men in Black, Hellboy, Road to Perdition, X-Men, X-Men First Class... All quality films (and I'm skipping several more that could be counted in the "above average" category).

    V for Vendetta was pretty awesome. Men in Black had it's time. The rest are all pretty forgettable. It's just my opinion. I'm obviously in the minority.

    Oh man, I disagree. I think First Class was the best of the X-Men films.

    Parts of it were promising. Some of the characters were ok. But it didn't feel like the X-men, it felt like some lame, bastardized version of it to me.

    I'm encouraged by parts of it, it's a good place to build from, but it lacks some of the heart and soul of the characters IMO.
