2012 Superhero Movies - Avengers, Batman Dark Knight, or Amazing Spiderman

Two questions:

1. Which one has the highest N.A. box office (I think it is pretty clear the new Spiderman will finish 3rd, but really have no idea with batman or the avengers)?

2. If you could only go to one in the theater, which would it be?

1)  Batman
2) Spiderman 
3) Avengers

Every Spiderman movie has earned more money then the other Marvel movies. 


It might be Spiderman if it has good reviews just to see the 3d web swinging.

Batman:  Dark Knight Rises.  Not even a question.

In terms of box office gross?

1) Batman
2) Avengers
3) Spiderman

I feel pretty confident about Batman @ #1 but wouldn't exactly be shocked if 2 and 3 flip-flopped, either.

The new Spiderman will flop, I think.  Not a lot of positive buzz around it.  The market's pretty saturated with superhero movies, and people aren't going to be too excited about a reboot of a series that started 10 years ago.

Batman will make a boatload of money, and Avengers will probably do well too, but not quite as well.

Agree it will be:

1) Batman
2) Avengers
3) Spiderman

I am a diehard comic fan and I do not plan on going to see Spiderman Reboot.   Too early for a reboot and I liked the other ones.

On the top 50 highest grossing films of all time, there are only 4 comic book movies.


the Dark Knight is # 11

Spiderman 3 is #22

Spiderman is #30

Spiderman 2 is #36.


Spiderman is Marvel's version of Batman/Superman.  It will outsell the the other Marvel movies.

One factor here, The female lead being played by Emma Stone.  My girlfriend wants to see it just because of that, then the other night she talked about it when we were out with friends and several other girls agreed.  Could be an x-factor

Any rumors on the "Hobbit"? I heard Peter Jackson shot it at 48 shots per second or something and that for some fans that was a major drawback. They complained it looked too much like actually being on the movie set. Ill be interested to see if i can notice any difference.

I'll watch it all. Spiderman is the most intriguing for me. Not being Tobey Maguire and such.

  • You ain't the boss of the freakin' bedclothes.
I'll see all three, but in terms of desire to see them, it goes

1) Batman
2) avengers
3) spidey

You can't ever not see a Christopher Nolan movie. If you skip it, you get Inceptioned into Ricky Davis's fevered alcohol dementia dreams, where up is down and down is...magenta. Animaniacs is on all the time.

But if Joss Whedon's on the track it's gotta be a monster. No way am I missing Avengers.

Batman will perform the best at the box office, and it won't even be close. It's the conclusion of a trilogy, while Avengers and Spiderman are the beginnings of new series.

If I could only see one, I would probably pick Batman because its last of the Nolan films, but If I'm being honest, I'm probably most excited about Avengers. Its just something that has never been done before in cinema.

I absolutely hated the Raimi Spiderman films, but this one has caught my interest.

Agreed.  The only way Batman doesn't win the box office is if it gets really terrible reviews.

Avengers...and I hope the makers don't goon it up.

Looking forward to the next Superman movie as well. He needs to fight Doomsday in this one.

Batman, Avengers, Spider-man is how I see the box office going unless one turns out to be spectacularly good or bad.

If I had to pick one to see it'd be the Avengers because well I've only been waiting years for this movie. I'm definitely excited about Spider-man. Reboot doesn't bother me at all. I'm used to Marvel having so many continuities, it'll be kinda like reading a story based in an alternate universe. Batman I'm cautious. I'm just still so traumatized by Bane's previous movie appearance.
