2) Batman #1
3) Batman #2
4) Iron Man #2
5) Batman #3

Quote:how do others feel? Also will post this on Iron Man board.
I thought each of the 3 Nolan Batman movies were better than than any of the Marvel movies.
The Marvel movies are superficial popcorn action movies. The Batman movies had depth and had tons of themes to explore.
I think you are a little too dismissive of the first Iron Man movie. Playboy billionaire gets hit with a huge dose of reality and decides to turn his life and company around. He is betrayed by his best friend and mentor and has to step up and become a hero. It's a good hero's journey tale and I think it's far better than Nolan's third Batman movie.
The Dark Knight rises is not a very good movie. It is too long, the pacing is off, Alfred disappears half way through the film because apparently Nolan has no idea what to do with him. And Nolan plays up Bruce's injuries in the beginning by as the film progresses he become less infirm, even getting his back un-broken(!). Remember how much we loved Nolan's Batman movies because they were more grounded in reality than other super hero movies?
The Dark Knight Rises is just an over bloated mess with a poorly edited script and it wouldn't break my heart if I never saw it again.
