So we’ve got two more big Superhero movies coming out.
The Spider-Man reboot.
The Dark Knight Rises.
I’m not anywhere near as excited about these two as I have been The Avengers. But I’ve been hearing all kinda of “Batman’s gonna kick Spider-Man’s ass!” and “Batman’s gonna blow The Avengers out of the water!”
And I’m here to throw in my 2cents.
No way in hell is Batman gonna reach the Avengers. But I will argue over Spider-Man.
Spider-Man is a far more kid-friendly franchise than this Batman trilogy has been.
Spider-Man has seen a lot more advertising than DKR has.
DKR will forever be the sequel to Heath Ledger’s last movie. It might do better than the Crow sequels, but will suffer from the same stigmas. It will forever be compared to the one before it, Bane will forever be measured up against Joker, and it will always been seen lacking. Unless the guy playing Bane bites it before the movie releases.
DKR looks very serious, brooding, and dramatic. Which I like, don’t get me wrong. But Spider-Man looks more light, funny, and just FUN. It’s a movie you can take your kids to, take your date to, and and I don’t see DKR having that same appeal. Kids will see Spider-Man three times. Who will watch DKR twice?
Alright, let’s hear your opinions. Tell me I’m wrong, and I’m an asshole. Agree with me. But post your opinions and which movie YOU think will do better in the comments.
