I liked them both equally for different reasons. Iron Man was a great comic book movie, Dark Knight was a great drama with comic book elements.

I'll be honest. After I saw Iron Man I thought there was no way TDK would be better even though it would likely be hyped up as better.

I was dead wrong.

The Dark Knight, but they are both 10 out of 10 comic movies.

Easy.

Going to be in the minority here. Dark Knight may have been the better made movie, but I far enjoyed Iron Man more.

I thought Iron Man was a lot of fun, but once I left the theater I forgot about it. And I thought speed racer was more fun then Iron Man.

so the Dark Knight for me.

If nothing else then the magic trick

I've been quoting this movie non stop since I (finally) saw it a few weeks ago. It was fucking great.


And I'm going to vote toss up, both good comic book movies.

Iron Man was a great comic book movie. The Dark Knight was more like an adaption of a really dark graphic novel. They both achieved the desired results of the writers & directors.

But I thought Iron Man was much more entertaining.

It's a toss up for me. I might give the edge to Iron Man if it would have had a stronger villain.

Iron Man was my favorite movie of the summer before TDK came out. And, well, Iron Man is still my favorite movie of the summer.
