Is this as a director or just comic book movies I'm thinking if it's just their comic book movies than

Nolan>=Raimi(Made the movie more comic-bookie, Spiderman 3 was ruined by the studio shoving Venom in)>Russo Brothers>> Singer>>> Whedon > Snyder

Still haven't seen Batman and Batman Returns

Nolan. If Raimi could of stuck the landing in the Spider-Man triology I would of our it as a tie.

Christopher Nolan. The Dark Knight trilogy is a work of art.

Nolan of course but I find it interesting Snyder with all the hate usually thrown his way makes it to this list at 16% while so far Joss Whedon is at 0%.

@heroup2112: Whedon's writing often feels very formulaic especially with his two Avengers movies but he's not shabby as a comic book writer, especially since his and John Cassaday's Astonishing X-Men work is my personal favorite X-Men comic storyline.

Nolan has been the benchmark for directors of CBMs, although I believe that the Russo brothers are going to blow everyone out of the water with the next two Avengers films.

  1. Nolan He is a great director in general.
  2. Rami Spider-Man 1 & 2 were great and 3 is overhated imo.
  3. Singer He is capable of making great movies, but he seems to need a talented team backing him to achieve his greats.
  4. Burton He was great for his time, but made quite a few directorial mistakes in his first Batman.
  5. Whedon Very solid director, but I don't like the way he writes characters in television, movies, or comics.
  6. Russos Too much flash and not enough substance. They're like Snyder, only with better scripts.
  7. Snyder Terrible at character develepment, and his movies have bad character writing, but at least his films are pretty.

Poll isn't asking about superhero movies. Its asking about comic book movies.

Comics and superheros are not mutually inclusive concepts. A comic can be about anything. Many of the best comics of all time are not about superheros.

@fallschirmjager: but Batman comics are generally about him facing superhumans

its pretty commonly agreed his Bane isn't great

really he got everyones origin pretty far from the comics (Batman himself being the exception)

@mrnoital: I just think its a pretty weak argument to say "Nolan's films aren't really superhero films" just to disqualify from the list of options. I'm not necessarily calling you out in particular as its a common statement made but its effectively saying "Well obviously the Nolan movies are so good that they would otherwise win but I don't want to pick them so I'm going to say they don't count and pick something else"

I'm leaning toward the Russo's now. At first I forgot that they didn't direct the first Captain America film, which I liked, but not as much as any of the films in the Dark Knight trilogy. Now that I think about it though, I actually like Civil War as much or more than the Dark Knight Rises or Batman Begins. I also hold the unpopular belief that The Winter Soldier is better than The Dark Knight. The Dark Knight is still the second best CBM. I just think that The Winter Soldier is the best comic book film I have seen so far.

@fallschirmjager: I'm just saying his movies feel more like general spy movies than specifically Batman movies to me

and I don't care much for Dark Knight Rises, so I wouldn't say he automatically wins anyways

@buttersdaman000: Please tell me that's a troll response.

Nope. I'm guessing the problems start with #4? You probably don't think Snyder deserves to be above any of them? I disagree, obviously. Let's start with the bottom, the most overrated directors on this site -- the russos. Yeah, they directed two pretty good CBM's but let's take a gander at their portfolio. Outside of the MCU films, their only notable directorial credits are in television. Their studio movies, again, outside the MCU, are mediocre -> trash. So, how do they go from mediocre, at best, film directors to fresh? It's really obvious -- they get their hands held by big daddy MCU. The goodwill of the MCU goes a long way in giving directors a guaranteed hit, regardless of talent. Go check for yourself.

Why did I put Snyder above Singer and Whedon? Well, this is where preference comes in. I feel like Snyders recognizable style and talent with the camera make him more notable than Whedon and his dialogue, or Singer....just being good.

I don't feel like Russos bring anything to the table outside of the MCU. They're as generic as they come. You could replace them with any director and I feel like TWS or CW would come out feeling more or less the same and arguably even looking better since both look like TV shows at times.

Geez, what a loaded question with all these different directors having such different styles and specialties in movie making. For me Spider-Man 2 is still my all-time favorite cbm, so I’m in debt to Raimi just on that alone all say

@buttersdaman000: The question is "Who is a better CBM director?". Russo's work outside of Marvel is irrelevant, saying that they lack work outside of CBM isn't a good reason

They don't lack work. I never said that. I said their work on movies suck outside the MCU.
