END OF YEAR POLL: Which CBM Battle Scene Of 2012 Was Your Favorite?

END OF YEAR POLL: Which CBM Battle Scene Of 2012 Was Your Favorite?

With 2012 coming to an end, we have another poll for you. This time, you get to pick your favorite fight scene. We have seen some truly epic battles this year, from Hulk taking on Thor in Marvel's The Avengers to Batman versus Bane in The Dark Knight Rises and more. Click to cast your vote...


2012 was a remarkable year for comic book movies. Each of these films below had at least one amazing battle scene. We had Joss Whedon's The Avengers finally hitting the big screen, and breaking all kinds of box office records. Most importantly, the film had a lot of fight sequences, so below are top three: Hulk battling Thor, Iron Man versus Thor and The Avengers taking on the Chitauri in one awesome tracking shot. Then we saw Christopher Nolan's conclusion of his Batman trilogy with The Dark Knight Rises, and fans saw a clash between Batman and Bane in two great scenes (sewer and City Hall). Next up, the Marc Webb-directed reboot The Amazing Spider-Man, which featured a fantastic fight scene in high school between Spidey and the Lizard. Pete Travis' Dredd didn't exactly set the box office on fire, but it was very well received from critics and fans. The film had some brilliant scenes, but one in particular is the "Slo-Mo" scene, where Dredd and Anderson enter the room and all hell breaks loose. Then there is Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. Fans hoped that this will be at least a solid take on the character, but everyone ended up being disappointed. But, there are a few cool scenes in the film, such as the crane sequence below and that whole fight between Ghost Rider and the thugs. We also had some CBM-related films which featured some rather awesome scenes, such as Chronicle's big fight in the city and John Carter's emotional and great-looking battle with the Warhoons. Vote below:

1. CHRONICLE:


2. GHOST RIDER: SPIRIT OF VENGEANCE:


3. JOHN CARTER:


4. MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS:


5. MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS:


6. MARVEL'S THE AVENGERS:


7. THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN:


8. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES:


9. THE DARK KNIGHT RISES:


10. DREDD:

Avengers working together
DrDoom - 12/21/2012, 5:35 PM
Well, the Avengers are easily taking this one home.
FirstAvenger - 12/21/2012, 5:38 PM
Spider-Man vs lizard and hulk vs Thor
Nivekian - 12/21/2012, 5:38 PM
I really liked all of them, so it's win/win for me as a fan.
nikgrid - 12/21/2012, 5:40 PM
More like Avengers CHEATING together. Yeah when the ballots loaded...why have the election at all. WolvieCBM remove all but one Avengers fight to make it at least seem like you're unbiased.
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 12/21/2012, 5:41 PM
Oh for the love of buddha, another one? le sigh, give me a second let me get my flaming materials in order.
Durf - 12/21/2012, 5:45 PM
Definitely goes to the Avengers end fight with the Chitauri. Just on the tracking shot alone it should win.

@AP: lol
616 - 12/21/2012, 5:45 PM
The hobbit, the orc cave battle was amazing. It deserves notice.
WolvieCBM - 12/21/2012, 5:46 PM
nikgrid: Sure, whatever you say. This is not about my favorite film, it's about your favorite fight scene. Avengers had tons of them, and these would be the top three and what fans talked about the most. If that bothers you, so be it.
616 - 12/21/2012, 5:46 PM
But I vote for the final avengers battle.
ToTheManInTheColdSweat - 12/21/2012, 5:47 PM
John Carter? [frick]ing John Carter? Is this a joke? The options are a [frick]ing joke.

No Hulk vs the entire [frick]ing chitauri after "Hulk Smash"?

No Hulk vs Loki?

No Captain America and Iron Man tag teaming chitauri bitches?

No Thor summoning lightning and lighting up the chrysler building?

No Bane Vs Batman round 1?

No Bane Vs Batman round 2?

No Judge Dredd vs Judge Alvarez?

No Judge Anderson vs Kay?

BUT boring John Carter made the list? Dafuq.
CaptainObvious - 12/21/2012, 5:49 PM
I think I'm the only one who likes the Helicarrier action scene better than the final battle.
Grimfoe - 12/21/2012, 5:50 PM
no way. the best battle, by far, was hulk vs. loki
DioFoRio - 12/21/2012, 5:53 PM
easily the avengers tracking shot. Gives me goosebumps thinking of JL trying to top it!
CoolantTech - 12/21/2012, 5:54 PM
For me between the Ironman/Thor battle and the hulk and Thor battle, yeah.. Avengers pretty much owned every thing this year... Thor fought alot in this movie, Thats why he's so awesome
Darth258 - 12/21/2012, 5:57 PM
Avengers working together.
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 12/21/2012, 5:57 PM
Isn't it obvious what is going to win lol. This is what Avengers was all about. A giant fight sequence.
unknownfacts - 12/21/2012, 5:59 PM
I vote for The Dark Knight Returns part one.Batman vs the mutant leader was the best fight scene in 2012 both battles.
Jollem - 12/21/2012, 5:59 PM
high school fight in tasm

nice to see some people aren't being little snots and including ghost rider in their polls. it's still a cbm regardless of some peoples disposition and attitude
ComicBookSon - 12/21/2012, 6:01 PM
Avengers is winning? DOUBLE VOTING FROM MARVELITES. Oh wait, apparently only Batman gets double votes....
DioFoRio - 12/21/2012, 6:02 PM
ghost rider needs to be directed by a director and writer with horror sensibilities.
marvel72 - 12/21/2012, 6:02 PM
1st the avengers working together
2nd hulk vs thor
3rd iron man vs thor
4th bane vs batman (breaking the bat)

Love the new voting system. (I guess it's new since i had to log in this time to vote..)
ComicBookSon - 12/21/2012, 6:12 PM
I love the buildup music for the city hall fight at 0:13 for Rises. So epic.
unknownfacts - 12/21/2012, 6:12 PM
How come the animated comic book movie aren't up here?What they don't count as movies?
marvel72 - 12/21/2012, 6:13 PM
single best shot of the avengers........

thor receiving his hammer just in enough time to give the hulk a blinding uppercut that sends the hulk crashing into a jet. classic

@ darth258

i didn't need to log in to vote.
Lego - 12/21/2012, 6:14 PM
hey i got a poll!

What was your favorite 3rd scene 20 minutes in on a center camera angle in a CBM this year?!

Cut it out with this dumb polls.
shamo - 12/21/2012, 6:14 PM
Chronicle's was forgettable
Ghost Rider? dont' even remember it.
John Carter? couldn't finish it.
TASM? nope, Raimi's Spidermen movies had better fights.
TDKR? possibly the worst fight scenes in a CBM.
Dredd? haven't seen it.
Avengers easily takes it. the only movie with remotely comparable fights would be X3 or Raimi's Spidey movies.
ComicBookSon - 12/21/2012, 6:15 PM
^X3 LMAOOOO
ThunderKat - 12/21/2012, 6:16 PM
Is there even a question beyond any of the scenes in "The Avengers?"

TDKR was slow, meandering, and weak.
Who saw "Dredd?"

And everyone thought the Goblin was a visually lacking villain...until The Lizard?
FightAs0ne - 12/21/2012, 6:18 PM
Say what you want about John Carter, but that was a great and emotional fight scene.
Can't decide between Chronicle, and The Avengers fighting together....
FightAs0ne - 12/21/2012, 6:19 PM
Wow these comments....
JorLBola - 12/21/2012, 6:22 PM
1 AVENGERS VS CHITAURI
2 BATMAN VS BANE (SEWERS)
3 SIPDEY VS LIZARD (SCHOOL)
Those are the coolest fights I've ever seen in a movie
unknownfacts - 12/21/2012, 6:23 PM
Another favorite scene was in Superman vs the Elite when Superman trick the Elite into thinking he finally snapped.Watching Manchester Supes goes all out on the Elite was funny and epic at the same time.
FightAs0ne - 12/21/2012, 6:26 PM
@unknownfacts Yes! That and the Dark Knight Returns pt. 1 fight with the mutant leader were really good fights.
marvel72 - 12/21/2012, 6:28 PM
the avengers had loads of decent fight scenes

-loki arrival kills shield agents
-black widow interrogation
-captain america,black widow & iron man vs loki in germany
-iron man vs thor
-thor vs hulk
-hulk smash chitauri
-hulk vs loki
-the avengers final battle against chitauri

this is why the avengers is the comic book movie event of 2012.
ComicBookSon - 12/21/2012, 6:31 PM
Marvel72
So you prefer action to story telling. Pity.
ISeeStupidPeople - 12/21/2012, 6:31 PM
1. Avengers Working Together
2. Dredd Slo-Mo scene
3. Chronicle

Honestly, if this was Batman vs. SWAT Team in TDK against any of these other movies... yeah, I'd go with that, but all of the fights between Batman and Bane were so freaking slow. From a story point of view, I get that it's to show an older and physically broken Batman (even before Bane gets a hold of him), but damn... those fights were boring to watch.

Chronicle just impressed me -- even despite the much, much smaller budget (and it certainly showed in a few scenes), they really pulled out all of the stops.
Darth258 - 12/21/2012, 6:32 PM
@marvel72: Oh.. well a few times i clicked without logging since i've heard it's ip based but this time i clicked on my choice but didn't move to the results and there was a line below the choices that said "Please Log In to vote"..
My bad. Thought it was different.
kevshardlemonade - 12/21/2012, 6:34 PM
C'mon, its Batman vs Bane. How could that not win. You're in denial or trolling if you dont vote that one.
