I would say Avengers, but it seems the critics could care less for a super hero that punches nazis int he face.

Whedon is a hit or miss outside the little geek world, nobody like the turds doing the Ghost Rider sequel

Webb has potential (1 film though)

Nolan's the only safe bet

but we already knew that though

really can't imagine that the batt-guy will beat the hulk thor and iron man end the black widow in one movie.....
marvel72 - 11/10/2011, 3:12 PM
pointless poll,i wonder who's gonna win. (rolls eyes)
CrashTest - 11/10/2011, 3:14 PM
Avengers, first of its kind and I hope for more.
Spidey91 - 11/10/2011, 3:15 PM
more Nolanite fuel,great,just what we needed ¬¬
MrLoki - 11/10/2011, 3:16 PM
The Avengers. It will astonish everyone.
I know TDKR seems like more possible option right now. But it's hard to follow TDK success and I am sure there will be people who won't be satisfied.
The Avengers will win the critics just like X-men FC did this year.
spiderman2020 - 11/10/2011, 3:16 PM
the footage for the amazing spiderman at the san diego comic con was amazing. the dark knight rises isn't gonna be as good as the dark knight since everything in the movie looks like shit especially Bane and Catwoman's suit.
jjmeylar - 11/10/2011, 3:19 PM
In all honesty: I think that it'll be between AS and TDKR.
SuperSpiderMan5778 - 11/10/2011, 3:27 PM
at this point after these stupid nolanites i say fawk TDKR...Avengers is gonna shit all over that pile of dog shit.
DrCKasady - 11/10/2011, 3:31 PM
i think the new spider man will be much better than the older ones that it will really get people talking.
RyanLantern77 - 11/10/2011, 3:35 PM
No brainer that TDKR will be more critically successful than any of these, probably commercially too. Parents will be more likely to take young kids to see the Avengers, while TDKR is too dark for kids, that being the only reason the Avengers would edge out TDKR.
BruceWayneNewton - 11/10/2011, 3:43 PM
I think it will be spider-man for some reason

Dark Knight rises faux sho
ALmighty1080 - 11/10/2011, 3:50 PM
Dark Knight Rises
Amazing Spiderman
Avengers
Ghost rider
40oz - 11/10/2011, 3:58 PM
Everyone is off their rocker if they don't think The Dark knight rises isn't going to win with the critics. History repeats itself. Critics don't favor the style of popcorn flicks like marvel produces. Ghost rider is going to flop. Top reviewed will be knight rises and spiderman. And I'm not hating on anything, love marvel, love dc. Just stating the facts and history.
gamecreatorjj - 11/10/2011, 4:02 PM
@SuperSpiderMan5778 im thinking the same thing about avengers fanboys
Garmanbozia - 11/10/2011, 4:04 PM
The Dark Knight Rises by lightyears!

The Avengers and company will be fun movies to watch, but will lack the quality, finesse, coherence and social themes adressed in a Nolan movie.
arachnid - 11/10/2011, 4:04 PM
kids who complain on this site are loser. thats my vote
MaddMonkk - 11/10/2011, 4:06 PM
I want them all to do well so they will make more but critic pov is TDKR, best action for scream awards Avengers ,best make up Ghost Rider, best neck Spiderman
Hanzakiiroi - 11/10/2011, 4:09 PM
Seriously why do people spend all there time complaining about TDKR and the Avengers for goodness sake i can stand all the hating
SotNatt - 11/10/2011, 4:15 PM
I voted for The Avengers, based on hopes and dreams and faith and fairy dust...
AlanWarlock - 11/10/2011, 4:16 PM
I think all of the Nolan-ites are going to be hugely disappointed with Nolan's "Batman & Robin/Superman IV/Spider-Man 3" production, and the critics will savage him. I never thought the critics were going to like "The Avengers," so my money's on Webb's reboot of "Spider-Man" with critical darlings Emma Stone and Andrew Garfield in the lead roles.
jf11mm - 11/10/2011, 5:20 PM
@alan warlock Batman & robin ? what are you talking about, superman comes out 2013 lets get ourt fact straight bud. I have to go with spiderman as a popular film next year.
AverageJoe - 11/10/2011, 5:21 PM
I think the only thing that is going to hurt Batman is the acting of Anne Hathaway. She's either decent or really bad, there's no in-between with her. Otherwise, Batman should take the top honors. Mostly because, as someone already pointed out, history. The last two were beloved by the critics, and for the most part, rightfully so. They weren't my favorite, but they enjoyable to watch.
I'm just happy studios are even making CBMs.
Action - 11/10/2011, 5:23 PM
@LordDeathMan-Nolan is a film genius, i'm sure he will not disappoint the public with his last batman film.
TinyBirdcage - 11/10/2011, 5:30 PM
Come on?! What kinda question...? Christopher Nolan is Directing. He already has the critics on his side. Christopher Nolan is a savant.
IDKwhatToChoose - 11/10/2011, 5:36 PM
27 people really voted for Ghostrider?? Really??? Did you guys watch the first one?
Moseephus - 11/10/2011, 5:43 PM
A Nolan film vs. all others.... C'mon man!!!
pokenluigi - 11/10/2011, 5:46 PM
i guess that those who voted for TDKR will do it again, and the same with those for Avengers... so, i think the results'll be the same as the previous poll ¬¬
NightForce - 11/10/2011, 6:11 PM
@Garmanbozia, LOL go watch TDK again and talk to me about "coherence".
StormRanger2011 - 11/10/2011, 6:30 PM
well i think we all can agree the biggest convo whos movie better is the next batman and avengers .only thing to top this is JL .
GodzillaKart - 11/10/2011, 6:32 PM
I actually think it will be in this order:

The Amazing Spider-Man
TDKR
The Avengers
GR

Although, I'm most looking forward to The Avengers.
Julesimanerd - 11/10/2011, 6:46 PM
TDKR
kevshardlemonade - 11/10/2011, 6:49 PM
Obviously The Dark Knight Rises will be the best but of the other 3 The Amazing Spider-man I think will be the nicest surprise. The Avengers will be at least fun and exciting.
TheDarkKnightWing - 11/10/2011, 7:51 PM
Critics love Nolans movies as far rotten tomatoes goes. Not a rotten film yet.
TDKR and maybe the Avengers are the only ones we can sure will even be fresh.
It could go either way for Spiderman seeing how its a remake and its a new series so we have no idea. And I have no faith in Ghostrider. Sorry.
poop23 - 11/10/2011, 8:08 PM
Dark knight rises is predictable.. After the dark knight you already know they need to do something surprising to keep up with the last one. Therefor, no longer surprising.

The Avengers, we already know it has to be big and epic, but there is more mystery to it because we don't really know how its gonna pan out. But it seems it will be interesting because of the fact that its a bunch of completely different people with different ways of thinking being brought together

All in all, the dark knight rises will be predictable. The Avengers I have no idea bout, but I do know this, the action in that film will smother TDKR, there isn't any competition on that part.

So in the end I guess the Avengers will be the most entertaining, as Chris Nolan fans who claim they're DC fans will defend to the death that TDKR is the best movie eve, which leads me to believe that most people on this site are still in middle school who grew Some interest in dc comics as a result of viewing nolan's Adaption of batman

TheOverlord - 11/10/2011, 8:39 PM
There's no way TDKR will not disappoint the critics, since it won't be TDK.
