Well the first IronMan is in the top 5 Superhero films IMO and MoS is not.

Iron Man is by far one of the best MCU movies so if any is going to beat MoS, this is one of the few that stands a chance.

Still, the opening in Krypton is still considerably above Iron Man's level, so my vote goes to Man of Steel again.

Man of Steel for me, Iron Man's really good but the finale was a huge let down for me. It got all corny too with the villain. Also, ZOD >Any Iron Man villain

I was amazed by the visuals, and particularly the care Snyder takes with visual transitions, and at the same time Zimmer does the same with the score.

Action wise it is a spectacle, that challenges us to think about what it would be like if titans walked the Earth, and doesn't hold back on its realistic depiction of the consequences of their actions (particularly in the carnage they'd create).

This is VERY close for me. I got these two about the same on my personal scale, tho MoS might edge it due to the better villain with Michael Shannon

Ok so while I prefer Man of Steel, I wouldn't mind if someone said Ironman 1 is better because it probably is. MoS just really suits my own taste in movies.

MOS by a slight margin. Both are my favorites of their respective franchises.

I don't care if Iron Man has better character development and lead performance. It's a boring ass movie. I'm voting MoS.

This is more like it, I was a little shocked when MoS was taking lead.

I was shocked at the lack of taste.

They are almost dead even for me. They are equal on just about all fronts, except for the villain. Since Zod was a way better villain than Iron Monger, I'll give it to MoS by like a fraction of a point.

That said Iron Man is still the best MCU movie to date and one of the greatest CBMs of all time

Iron Man. How can this be a contest, especially against broody Superman (which I liked but not to the extent of Iron Man 1).

Iron Man 1 is hands down one of the best MCU movies ever.

Can someone please explain why Iron Man (2008) is held in high esteem? Everyone talks about Robert Downey Jr.'s performance, but is that all there is to the movie? The villain, climax, story and action were all unremarkable. I actually prefer the sequel (bite me).

@gotoucanario: you're too humble, art is subjective. You prefer MOS and that's all there is to it. There is no "Iron Man probably is better"

@theamazingspidey: I agree. Iron Man 1 isn't even the best out of the trilogy if I'm being perfectly honest.
