Batman Forever ensures that this is an easy win for the Iron Man trilogy. And, InB4 all the MCU haters on this site vote for the Batman trilogy.

@payneintheass: I'd put Iron Man 1 ahead of Batman 1 by more than a little, and Iron Man 3 is far better than Batman Forever.

It's a close call, first entries are pretty even, Batman Returns is much better than IM2, however Batman Forever is amazingly bad...

Ill go with Bat, but it could change depending on the day

That Batman trilogy is dated and looks bad now.

Keaton's Batman walks weirdly, kills people while smiling a creepy smile and his suit doesn't look good especially the mouth area.

I tried rewatching them recently and couldn't.

This is an easy win for Iron Man.

I actually do think Batman 1 and Batman Returns are good movies. A bit dated visually yes, but I think they're alright. The Iron Man Trilogy is better overall though.

Two thirds of the IM trilogy are disappointing to say the least, but IM1 is still one of the finest modern CBMs - it is almost unfair when people compare the classics from the 80s/90s to MCU movies, in my opinion. The only one that stacks up is 'Returns', which I can still watch and enjoy today.

@anthp2000: I thought Batman 1 and Batman Returns are both solid Batman films, but neither one is as good as Iron Man 1. I agree with your assessment of the IM trilogy as a whole; sequels were disappointing, but the first is one of the best CBMs ever made.

I only have one word for you - Mandarin. Not even Batman and Robin mauled the original comic book character so badly.

@kairan1979: Oh, yes they did. Two-Face.

And I actually found the Mandarin twist amusing. Not to mention that the MCU has an actual Mandarin, and Trevor was just a fake:

And Iron Man 3 is better put together overall, as opposed to the campy and often painfully unfunny and shlocky Batman Forever.

Even with Batman Forever obviously being a weak link, the OG Batman movies still stomp.

@mrmonster: Stomp? Iron Man 1 was fantastic, and a significantly better movie then any of the three Batman movies. And I don't think that either of the IM sequels was anywhere near as bad as Batman Forever.

We might have to agree to disagree on that one. I prefer both Batman and Batman Returns over Iron Man.

I´d watch Batman and Batman Returns over Iron Man

So that decides it for me.

Batman has two films I enjoy

Iron Man has only the first.

Plus the nostalgia lol

Loved Iron Man but absolutely hated the second one and thought the third was meh.

With Batman I loved the first two, disliked the third, so I guess that wins

Even as a child I didn't feel much for Batman flicks, Iron Man trilogy has the first great installment at least.

Definitely the Batman movies.

both Batman and Batman Returns were/are classic movies, imo they are the two best CBMs ever made. Batman Forever wasn't that good but it had some things I liked about it, such as Val Kilmer as Batman. I think he was excellent in that role, I would argue he's the best ever live action Batman. he had the Conroy-esque voice, a great presence on screen and he played both Bruce Wayne and Batman equally well.

with the Iron Man movies I think the first one was the only good one, and even that had quite a few aspects that I didn't like.

First 3 Batman movies for me. I don’t really care for Batman Returns, but Batman 1 and Forever are the bees nees.

Likewise I don’t care for Iron Man 2, but 1 and 3 I really enjoy.

That said, Batman 1 > Iron Man 1. Batman Forever > Iron Man 3.

Batman, but barely. Batman 89 and Iron Man 1 are equals, Returns is better than Iron Man 2, and Batman Forever is quite underated, while Iron Man 3 is just average.

@mrsportsguy13: I think Batman Forever is rated just fine. It's a terrible movie that has the single worst take on Two-Face I've ever seen. I also don't consider IM 1 and Batman 1 equals. I think Iron Man does a better job with it's title character than Batman does with its.

The Iron Man trilogy. If Batman Forever was better, we could maybe make a better argument.

Batman. IM2 and IM3 just aren’t enough to support its team for me. ...and while Batman Forever is not good, nostalgia still is there for that time period for me.

I don't think they're any worse bombs than Batman Forever was. I actually think IM2 is underrated honestly. Not great, but not awful either, and definitely no worse than Batman Forever.

We might have to agree to disagree on that one. I prefer both Batman and Batman Returns over Iron Man.

Based on? I mean, I like Batman and Batman: Returns, but I would never put them ahead of Iron Man 1. I'm curious to know your reasoning.

Batman. 1 doesn’t hold up but it’s watchable, 2 is great with the best Catwoman to date, 3 is wack and garish, but the over-the-top design and performances is marginally acceptable. By 4 that style choice had outstayed its welcome.

Iron Man 1 is fantastic. Better than Batman Returns in fact, but the next are worse are and worser than B1 and B3. Sam Rockwell can’t even save IM2.

Iron Man.

Iron Man is the best movie in the line up, but Iron Man 2 is the worst movie in the line up.
