Which one of them is going to be THE superhero movie of the summer/year, more critically praised, successful, bringing in more money etc? I have very high hopes for the both of them and i cannot decide or judge.
The Dark Knight Rises is a lazy ass title. Not only that, but Christian Bale and his raspy voice Batman is shit. The Avengers is including several very good movies. Thor, Ironman, and Captain America were all pretty solid. The Avengers all the way.

TDKR will be better received. Problem is that the Avengers has been building up so much and is so busy that I fail to see how the move could possibly live up to the expectations. I think the Avengers will be a good maybe great movie but it will not be the be all end all of the genre the way some expect it to be.

I'm not a fan of these new batman films directed by Nolan at all. They don't manage to capture the dark, Gothic theme of Gotham like the old Batman's did. Gotham city is just like New York city, or any other city.
The Dark Knight just felt like a crime thriller film and not an actual Batman film.
That said, The Avengers film looks really corny though, I guess I'm not really hyped up for either film. If I had to pick one it would be TDKR.
