Wow, this one is pretty tough. My fandom for Batman wins out though.
Batman Begins still remains among my favorite films, and it shows that the one man's journey can be more interesting than a collection of hundreds!
nicely said SquareMaster. I really really enjoyed the Avengers, it was at 11 from start to finish, and was a great charater story. But Batman Begins just has so much going for it. Bein g grounded in gritty realism really gives the film more merits, and Chris Nolan is wondeful.
Avengers for me.
I'd pick most Batman movies over most Marvel movies. I've been kind of hard on "The Avengers," but I really did have a lot of fun watching it. Some parts of "Batman Begins" that just don't work for me.
Avengers wins. Just a better time at the movies, and that is really all I can ask for...
I have to be in a Batman mood to enjoy Batman Begins. Avengers is always good though.
Avengers is more fun, but Batman Begins is more interesting. I really enjoyed Avengers, but Batman Begins converted me to being a fan of Batman. The caped crusader wins.
Avengers by a ton. Batman Begins is so very flawed and I literally couldn't think of a thing that would make Avengers better.
Avengers for me too.
Batman Begins gave us hope in a time were Superhero films were very underrated, but The Avengers is one of the best Superhero films out there, it plays its tropes much better than any other.
Batman Begins was a special experience. One of the best superhero films ever made.
Having too many super heroes is The Avengers' problem. Focusing on only one hero and having a more realistic story makes Batman Begins superior.
The Avengers. Batman Begins is the only Christopher Nolan movie I've that seen where I simply don't give a shit.
I'm gonna give Begins its props because it's an enjoyable movie (most superhero movies are). l can't help but laugh at some of the dialogue though. ''To conquer fear you must become fear!" C'mon Chris, you're not a 9 year-old in a Creative Writing workshop.
The Avengers worked better for me.
I'm picking Batman. It's a better movie that stands out on it's own easily, wherein The Avengers is dependent on you liking the Marvel superheroes from the get go. Avengers to me felt like a fan-fiction crossover where more attention was payed to the interacting personalities than to story development.
In spite of some cool action scenes, I didn't really like Batman Begins, but it's still superior to The Avengers.
I've actually seen Avengers maybe about four times, once in the theater, once on Blu-ray, and twice on DVD at someone's else place. So it has grown on me since the first viewing, but the CGI and the always tedious motif of "Invaders from Another Planet" dragged it down for me.
Joss Whedon will always opt for glibness over depth. Did anyone else notice that The Avengers lifted the alien invasion plot from Transformers3?
Or was it Green Lantern? Does it make a difference? Weren't they all the same? Should I care?
Lyndsy Fonseca, (the girl who plays the Russian heiress on Nikita) would've made a more interesting Black Widow than Scarlett Johansson, who spent most of The Avengers looking awkwardly intent. Black Widow and the Arrow Guy aren't given that much interesting to be or do (maybe because they didn't get films for themselves before hand?) and there is this ridiculous shot during the climatic scenes when it looks like everyone is posing for a "superhero in action" shot.
^That's true, it's almost exactly like in Transformers 3. For anyone interested: http://d24w6bsrhbeh9d.cloudfront.net/photo/5879959_700b_v1.jpg

Both entertaining superhero flicks. Batman has the benefit of Christopher Nolan who is a much skilled director than Joss Whedon.
