Poll: Batman v Superman vs Age of Ultron (75 votes)

BvS 40%
AoU 60%

Which movie did you like better?I saw both on cinema and I'd definitely say BvS is my clear choice. The only thing I was disappointed about was the cutting/editing of the movie, they should have kept some of the deleted scenes because it got messy sometimes. Other than that, the CGI & acting was very well done, I loved Ben Affleck as Batman same with Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman. It also had bada$$ soundtracks.

AoU disappointed me, I was looking forward to see Ultron as a villain in a movie, in the trailers he looked intimidating like he should, but it seemed like they took his best parts in the trailer because in the movie he was a complete joke.

Age of Ultron is too bad imo, like Fant4stic level bad.

AoU was complete mediocrity from beginning to end. There was literally nothing about that movie worth remembering.

Hell, the whole "is thor a city buster" argument has given me more enjoyment than the movie itself ever did.

BvS had some low valleys without a doubt, but for me its peaks make it better.

Batman v. Superman. Has it's own lows, but was at least something original and consistent. I thoroughly enjoyed it on every viewing.

I don't hate AoU. But it's a forgettable action film that was a step down from the first film.

TAS has the right idea. AoU was just some action film, there's really nothing else we can say about it other than the fact that it starred the Avengers, even though I did like the movie after my second viewing. It had no character development, no meaningful interactions, no depth to speak of, nothing about it was worth emotionally connecting to in any way and therefore it's not memorable. It's no coincidence the 17 minutes on Hawkeye's farm was the best section of the film.

But IMO BvS is a masterpiece.

Thanks for the support, man! I'd rather a film that has it's shortcomings but tries something fresh, original and substantial then something safe. Yeah, BvS is flawed, but I'd be lying if I didn't prefer it to 95% of the movies I saw this year. Almost everything is so goddamn boring nowadays, lol.

I find it ironic BvS was written off as "boring" by most people, when I'm still intrigued by it on 7th (yes, 7th! viewing).

Did you really love BvS that much, though?! That's really cool.

@theamazingspidey: I think Zack Snyder is a visionary trying to revolutionize the CMB genre. Instead of just bringing the pages to the big screen like we see all the time, he understands the characters in enough depth to actually try something original, the films he makes are like a breath of fresh air. Neither MoS nor BvS are perfect obviously, because nothing is perfect, but I loved the overall direction the DCEU was going in. The problem is that those types of films aren't befitting a franchise series with general audience mass appeal; they're much more sophisticated films that need to be thought about and discussed, they're movies for film fans and not the general audience, so it's no surprise that they split the public. I'm very, very disappointed with the Justice League trailer and the new direction they seem to be heading in. The jokes were all terrible.

You hit the nail in the head. Comparing Zack Snyder to Michael Bay is totally uninformed. If all Snyder cared about was action, as most people suggest, he wouldn't put so much effort into asking questions with these characters. Even when he fails in some departments, it mostly comes from a well-meant place. The amount of character and dialogue detail in DoJ was outstanding. If you haven't already, you should check out mosaic, podcast that helped me appreciate the film even more.

Personally, I was initially really excited at Justice League and teared up watching the trailer, but after watching Suicide Squad, I'm painfully worried for JLA and realised I much prefer Snyder's earlier vision for the franchise.

BvS was better. I hated AoU throughout most of it, while BvS I can at least find some scenes that I can praise as good or great. It also had more interesting ideas in its plot, even if the execution was lacking.

BvS was much better. And no subplot in BvS was disgusting, terrible, stupid and so out of place like that Hulk/Black Widow romance. I cringe everytime I see that. Also, Ultron was a jobber.

In terms of quality, they're pretty much equal. But since the Ultimate BvS cut is a VAST improvement, I vote BvS.

I'd rather take the stark disappointment of the BvS TC over the amazing mediocrity of AoU.

AoU was complete mediocrity from beginning to end. There was literally nothing about that movie worth remembering.

Like, what even happened in that movie?!

@theamazingspidey: the two film left me with regret. Villains - both were shambles. AOU constant need to have witty dialogue was annoying as hell. AOU pacing was literally them moving from one action scene to the next. And the last battle was basically them answering to Man of Steel, which was boring to me as a viewer.

I could go on but talking about AOU having no redeeming qualities apart from its action isn't what I want to do.

Age of Ultron was a big letdown.

While BvS could have been a lot better, it was still a good movie IMO.

Batman vs Superman for me. I don't see how anyone could like the butchery they did to Ultron in AOU. It was one thing to change his origin but for me changing his personality was pretty bad. Ultron's not suppose to be Tony Stark 2.0

BvS, but only by a hair. I didn't think either films were that bad or that good. I would personally give AOS a 7/10 while BvS 7.5/10
