    The two major blockbusters of 2012 are going to be Chris Nolan's final chapter to his Batman series - The Dark Knight Rises, and the Avengers movie.

    Which one are you more interested in seeing or think will be better? The Avengers or The Dark Knight Rises?

      The Avengers without a doubt.  Who could resist seeing all those superheroes together.  Too bad they couldn't find a more manly actor to portray Captain America.

    Well both are going to make a lot of money this year, due to the hype surrounding them.  I think "the Avengers" will make the most money, while "The Dark Knight Rises" will have arguably the best story between the two. 

    In the end, I'm looking forward to both equally for different reasons.

    I'm slightly more interested in the Avengers movie, partly because I'm really interested in how they pull this off with the first cross over comic book film....I'm more confident in The Dark Knight Rises since Nolan already has a great track record.

    My interest leans more towards the Avengers since it's something yet to be seen as far as comic films go.

      That's actually the same reason why I'm curious to see "The Avengers" as well, and more importantly what happens to this new found movie universe going forward.  I think they can get away with it in theory, but they have to keep it simple.  If they over complicate things, then it could hurt them in the long run, as they can't possibly expect every movie fan to watch all the films made by Marvel Studios just to catch up on what's going on.

    I'm more interested in seeing The Avengers. It's never been done before. The way all of the superheroes were introduced in their own movies was pretty cool. Looking forward to seeing them all together in one film. I'm pretty much over Batman although I did enjoy most of the Batman flicks.

    I'll go with The Avengers, I'm curious to see how they handle all those superheroes in one movie and who gets the most screen time.

    I'm sure Dark Knight Rises will be expertly made by Nolan and just as gloomy as the previous two, I like Tom Hardy and Michael Caine but I'm not the biggest Christian Bale fan out there. I am curious to see Anne Hathaway as Catwoman I hope she perks things up a bit. wink

    Well both will definately promise to be interesting. I'm definately more interested in the Dark Knight Rises, only because his first two were well crafted and Christopher Nolan's films seem to get better with budget (Just look at "Inception"). However, although Joss Whedon is not as skilled or popular a director as Nolan, I thoroughly enjoyed his film "Serenity" (I believe it's his only film released so far). So no doubt I will see both in theaters.

    I have far more worries about The Avengers than I do regarding Dark KNight Rises. There couldn't be a better director at the healm than in Joss Whedon as this man is a fan and will create something that fans want to see. My fear is that as with the X Men series it is impossible to give all of the characters a fair crack of the whip in a 1:30-2:00 hour film. I understand he is getting around this by telling the story from the point of view of Captain America. My big fear is that the reason for bringing 'Earth's Mightiest Heroes' together isn't enough. It seems asa thouh Loki is the the main/only villain, why not Thanos? Galactus? Something huge!!!
    So after all that, The Avengers probably does interest me more, strangley! Just hope I'm not disappointed.

    The Avengers.
    I know it's a unpopular opinion, but the Batman films have moved so far away from what Batman is, that to me it's Batman in name only anymore.
    I'm interested to see if Joss can at least catch the spirit of The Avengers.

    I loved the first Dark Knight, so I am MUCH more interested in the new one.  I can't wait to see it!
