  1. I have been experiencing a lot of way-off and too distant predictions all over superheroes. First of all, the WW predictions are very wide for Deadpool, some saying it flops due to R-rating, some saying it will become a hit due to buzz. Second, some said BvS could flop due to Zack Snyder possibly ruined it, and said the third trailer is terrible. Third, there were complaints about the teaser trailer, which people deemed it terrible, but its views could recover the WW BO. Fourth, there is a lot of talk about X-Men Apocalypse, it will be successful due to the villain itself and the trailer, but some commented it doesn't have Hugh Jackman/Wolverine. Fifth, Suicide Squad is poised to be a surprise hit, but the term "Suicide Squad" is unfamily-friendly to children, there has also been predicts above $1b WW. Sixth, the Gambit has an excellent star, but due to script issues, this seems like in danger. Lastly, Strange is very hard to predict, some says low, but some says it high. How good/accurate are you at predicting WW number tally? There will be 7 super movies to predict WW. Closest predict to actual WW wins. 8 if Sinister Six included, but it will most likely be indefinitely delayed or canceled. CATEGORIES/MOVIES TO PREDICT WW: - Deadpool - Batman v. Superman - Civil War - Apocalypse - Suicide Squad - Gambit - Doctor Strange Entries/WW predicts for all 7 categories must be posted by February 11, 2016 , day before the WW rollout for Deadpool. Beyond that, you can't predict anymore those 7, goodbye. Once you have predicted for first time, you can't change your predict in order to avoid confusion. Changing it will be declined. YOUR WW predicts should only contain one decimal place, two decimal places, then it will be rounded off to tens. No decimal places for WW predicts are okay, but it should not be exactly the same as others predicts. ALSO, use millions (m) only, don't use billions (b) so there will be no confusions. For example, If you predicted $246,586,634, then it will become $246.6m. If you predicted $1.42534b, then it will become $1425.3m. NOTES: 1st place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Batman v. Superman, Civil War, Apocalypse, Suicide Squad) gets a FREE gold account upgrade. 2nd place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Batman v. Superman, Civil War, Apocalypse, Suicide Squad) gets a FREE premium account upgrade. 3rd place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Batman v. Superman, Civil War, Apocalypse, Suicide Squad) gets a FREE silver account upgrade. 4th place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Batman v. Superman, Civil War, Apocalypse, Suicide Squad) gets a 5 batarangs, batmobile, power of flight and superspeed, Captain America's shield, Apocalypse and Joker cosplay costume. 1st place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Deadpool, Gambit, Doctor Strange) gets a FREE premium account upgrade. 2nd place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Deadpool, Gambit, Doctor Strange) gets a FREE silver account upgrade. 3rd place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Deadpool, Gambit, Doctor Strange) gets a FREE copper account upgrade. 4th place Winner at each of THESE CATEGORIES (Deadpool, Gambit, Doctor Strange) gets a dual UZI, Gambit costume and magic powers. You can only have ONE upgrade. TWO UPGRADES IS NOT ALLOWED. Period. However, if you already have an account upgrade, you can give it to your friends or enemies. IMPORTANT: You can't have a same WW predict as others for each category. For example, Person A predicted $245m WW for Movie A, then Person B predicted $245m WW for Movie A aswell, then, the Person B's predict will strictly increase by $500,000. In an event of after strictly increasing WW predict of Person B's to $245.5m WW, where Person C already predicted $245.5m WW before, then Person B' predict gets increased to $246m WW. And so on. Movie A is an example. AGAIN: Once you have predicted for first time, you can't change your predict in order to avoid confusion. Changing it will be declined. You may choose which ones do you want to predict first, leaving the rest TBP (To Be predicted). Hence, if you haven't predicted that a movie before, you still have chance to predict it, but until Feb 3, 2016. For example, a person is 2nd at both Civil War and Suicide Squad, then he/she only get one premium account upgrade. For example, a person is 1st at both Deadpool and Gambit, then he/she only get one premium account upgrade. For example, a person is 1st at Batman v. Superman, but 2nd at Civil war, then he/she only get one gold account upgrade. Winners will be declared if EACH superhero movie ended its WW run. Numbers of BOM will serve as an OFFICIAL numbers for this contest. I'm going to start this extravaganza (in US dollars): Deadpool : 132m Batman v. Superman : 1316m Civil War : 1335m Apocalypse : 878m Suicide Squad : 952m Gambit : 367m Doctor Strange : 579m
  2. What will be the next movie of Phase one DCU???
  3. Lego Batman is coming out in a few weeks and I think it'll probably do over the Domestic total of Storks ($72M) on opening weekend for a few reasons. 1.) There has been rampant marketing for this. 2.) I feel that families have been dying for a new film to see. 3.) It has Batman in this. IN: OUT:
  4. Since everyone is doing a Lego Batman Club I might as well make one. Lego Batman is arguably going to be one of the biggest animated hits of 2017. I think it will beat cross over $300M for a few reasons. Reasons: 1.) It's the first blockbuster animated movie of 2017 with great marketing. I've seen trailers for this with Rogue One, Batman V Superman, and Sing, getting great applause. 2.) It has the goodwill from The Lego Movie, with arguably the one of the films major draw as the main character: Batman, not to mention something appealing to older crowds. 3.) January and perhaps February will arguably be weak this year, and if any film is going to breakout in Q1 2017 (other than BaTB) it is this. 4.) Animated superhero movies like BH6 and Incredibles were huge hits, but with a character as big as Batman this could explode. 5.) Lego Batman will likely have great reviews and WOM. IN OUT
  5. From the creator of the successful Sing over Moana club comes an even bolder club. I think Lego Batman will over perform this year with a $80M+ opening. So much I see it's opening day bigger than the total of Monster Trucks ($30M-$35M total), mainly because of the likely good reviews and being the first blockbuster of 2017. So are you in or out IN: (The Darkest Knights) Me (Lego Batman OD $33M > Monster Trucks $30M) OUT: (Batman and Robin Cinematic Universe)
  6. A-LIST: 700+ m WW B-LIST: 400-700 m WW C-LIST: 200-400 m WW D-LIST: less than 200 m WW Here are the contenders: Iron Man (Iron Man 3) Superman (Man of Steel) Wolverine (The Wolverine) Thor (Thor: The Dark World) Captain America (Captain America: The Winter Soldier) Spider-man (The Amazing Spider-man 2) X-men (X-men: Days of Future Past) Guardians of the Galaxy (self-titled) Fantastic Four (self-titled) Avengers (Avengers 2) Justice League (self-titled?) Ant-Man (self-titled) Dr. Strange (self-titled) So who goes in which list?
  7. I'd say Batman the year before the first Justice League movie. Maybe 2016.and Green Lantern after the year immediately after the first Justice League movie. Around 2018.It would basically be a spin off with John Stewart.
  8. Welcome to the second chapter of the Box Office Knight saga. I hope you guys really liked BoxOfficeBegins, and it's time to follow up with The Box Office Knight. I've been really looking forward to this one because it allows me to open up the story to a lot of posters I've been wanting to get to. This is Part 1 for now, and this will be ongoing for at least the next couple months. I'm actually using the Shooting Script as my reference, which is slightly different than the final film. It's about 95% of the same, but you'll understand if some things aren't quite in order or lines are ever so slightly different. Comments, suggestions, feedback, likes, etc as always are appreciated. THE BOX OFFICE KNIGHT We begin in daylight on an ordinary Sunday morning. The weekend thread is busy with numbers. People are catching up on all the nonsense that happened overnight on Friday. People talking about Nikke being drunk, Frozen numbers, Marvel vs DC…the usual stuff. Elsewhere…two posters go from one thread to another. In the box office general discussion, a lone poster waits to be picked up by two others. He puts on his avatar just before joining them. Films: Three of a kind, let’s do this. Hiccup: That’s it? Three guys? Films: There’s two on the top of the thread. Every guy is an extra share. Five shares is plenty. Hiccup: Six shares. Don’t forget the guy who planned the job. Films: He thinks he can sit and out and still take a slice. I know why they call him the Telemachos. The scene cuts to the two posters at the top of the thread. Fancyarcher: So why do they call him the Telemachos? Elessar: I heard he uses a Lawrence of Arabia avatar. Fancyarcher: Lawrence of Arabia? Elessar: Yeah, to maximize likes. Y’know, Peter O’Toole. Fancyarcher and Elessar begin waiting for the post reports to trip. From the bottom, Films, Hiccup, and another enter the thread and begin trolling wildly. Somebody begins reporting their posts, but Fancyarcher and Elessar are there to intercept it. Elessar: Here comes the silent report. And there it goes. That’s funny, it didn’t reach out to the mods, it was trying to reach a private poster. Fancyarcher: Is it a problem? Elessar: No, I’m done here. Suddenly, Fancyarcher bans him. He takes his equipment and begins moving into the thread from above. He enters the vault of likes where all the weekend likes are being stored for the day. He begins to hack into it.Meanwhile, Films , Hiccup, and the third poster are rounding up all the posters together. Within the thread, Rallax, the topic creator watches. He grabs a banning shot gun. Films: Obviously we don’t want you doing anything with your fingers other than staying still… A bang is heard and Hiccup is blown away. Banned. Films and the other poster flee into hiding. As they’re being attacked, Fancyarcher attempts to hack and get all the likes but he is zapped. Back in the main part of the thread. Rallax begins firing wildly. One. Two. Three. Four. Rallax: DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA WHO YOU’RE STEALING FROM? YOU AND YOUR FRIENDS ARE DEEEEAD. Films: He’s out right? The other poster thinks for a second, and then indicates yes. Films stands up and Rallax fires at him. Films is lucky to avoid the gunfire, but then the third poster pops out and takes him down. He’s not banned, but incapacitated. Films: Where’d you learn to count?! Films then goes into the vault of likes where Fancyarcher has resumed hacking into the vault. Fancyarcher: They wired this thing up a whole bunch of firewalls. What kind of weekend thread does that? Films: A Frozen weekend thread. Guess the Tele’s as crazy as they say. Where’s the alarm guy? Fancyarcher is able to access the likes. The vault is now broken into. Fancyarcher: Boss told me that when I was done, I should take him out. One less share. Films: Funny. He told me something similar… Fancyarcher: Wait, wait, no! Films bans him too and enters the vault which is filled with THOUSANDS of likes. He begins collecting them and lining them up in the main area of the thread so they can make their escape. Once they’ve completed collecting them, they prep to make their exit. Films: If this guy was so smart, he’d have come up with a better exit. Films cocks his banning weapon and points it at the final poster remaining along with him. Films: I’m betting the Tele told you to ban as soon as we loaded up the likes. Poster: No no no, I ban the app driver. The poster sidesteps. So too does Films. Films: App driver? What app driver? Suddenly a giant app comes crashing in which will take them out of the Box Office General Discussion and carry away all the likes. Films is banned in the process. The app driver comes out and the other poster helps him load the likes into the app. Kitik: Dang, Films ain’t getting up, is he? Wow that’s a lot of likes. Hey what happened to all the other…? The remaining poster bans him. He loads the remaining likes. Rallax continues to watch, wounded. Rallax: Think you’re smart huh? Well the same guys who hired you are gonna do the same to you. Trollers in this forum used to believe in things. Honor. Respect. What do you believe in, huh? WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE IN? The poster then reveals his true avatar and it is indeed…The Telemachos. Telemachos: I believe that…what doesn’t ban you makes you….stranger. Rallax has a terrified look as Telemachos plants a device on him that is set to ban him. He attaches it to the app and makes his exit, pulling the pin on the device. Rallax awaits his banning but it turns out to be nothing more than a false banning. Rallax slinks back in shock. The app makes its exit and the Telemachos has managed to successfully pull of the heist. ------------------------------------------------------- It’s night time and the Zack Galifiankis symbols shines across the Box Office forums. A deal is going on between two common criminal posters when they see the symbol. Poster 1: Naw man, I don’t like it tonight. Poster 2: What’re you, superstitious? You got a better chance of winning the lottery than running into him! At the Major Crimes Unit for the Mods, various mods watch the headlines. This includes k1stpierre and MovieMan89. On the TV stream, Blankments is interviewing Riczhang, the elected leader of Box Office Forums. He’s talking about Meryl Streep of course. And the BoxOfficeMan. Blankments: Mr. Riczhang, you were elected to clean up the boards. When are you going to start? Riczhang: Well, Blank… Blankments: Like this so called BoxOfficeMan, a lot of people are saying he’s doing some good, that trollers are running scared. Yet we hear that instead of trying to suspend him, the mods are trying to use him to do their dirty work. Riczhang: I’m told that our men in the Major Crimes Unit are close to making a suspension. K1stpierre: Hey, MovieMan, you hear that? The mayor says you’re closing in on the BoxOfficeMan. MovieMan89: The investigation is ONGOING. The list of suspects include jokes like Abraham Lincoln and Elvis. At the top of the thread, k1stpierre meets up with Redfirebird. K1stpierre: You ever intend on seeing your wife again, Lieutenant? Redfirebird: I thought you had to look after your mother, detective. K1stpierre: She’s at the hospital. Redfirebird: I’m sorry to hear that. K1stpierre: He still hasn’t shown? Redfirebird: He often doesn’t. But I like reminding everybody that he’s out there. K1stpierre: Why wouldn’t he come? Redfirebird: Hopefully, because he’s busy. -------------------------------------------------------- In a shady thread, a bunch of posters are congregating, including Chewy. He notices the Zack Galifianakis symbol. Chewy: That’s why we bring spambots. My little princes… They grab one of the posters who’s going crazy. He seems to be having symptoms similar to watching the Amazing Spider-Man through a stream. They’re meeting another group of posters. Chewy: Look what your movie did to my customers! Out comes iJackSparrow (after a 8 month hiatus) iJackSparrow: Buyer beware. I said my movie would take you places. I never said they’d be places you want to go. Chewy: My business is repeat customers. iJackSparrow: If you don’t like what I have to offer, buy from someone else. Assuming the BoxOfficeMan left anyone else to buy from. The bots begin going off. They’re aware that someone is in their presence. Chewy: MY BOTS ARE HUNGREH. Chewy notices the BoxOfficeMan Chewy: PITY THERE’S ONLY ONE OF YOU But suddenly another poster is taken out from a spot that could not have been the BoxOfficeMan. And then another. The third one pulls out a banning weapon and fires at them. Everybody begins scattering the thread. iJackSparrow: That’s not him! Chewy: Loose the bots! The bots are unleashed and viciously begin attacking the faux BoxOfficeMen. Meanwhile, one of them subjected by iJack to the Amazing Spider-Man and he begins to go insane. Then….BLAM. The BoxOffice Mobile App comes crashing in. iJackSparrow: That’s more like it… The various posters begin attacking the app but to no avail. Suddenly the app fires back to intimidate. The remaining posters begin to scatter and then the true BoxOfficeMan appears, taking down one of the imposters. He moves on to the other posters and takes them down with ease. iJack begins to make his exit from the thread and the BoxOfficeMan is trying to save one of the imposters from the spam bots. iJack’s app crashes into BoxOfficeMan and he tries to escape. BoxOfficeMan begins using a device to crack into the app, but he is forced to stop. He calmly makes his way to the exit of the thread as iJack circles around. BoxOfficeMan jumps from the top, and promptly smashes iJack’s app. The scene cuts to BoxOfficeMan rounding up iJack, and the other posters. BoxOfficeMan: Don’t let me see you out here again. Kal: We’re trying to help you! BoxOfficeMan: I don’t need your help. iJackSparrow: Not my diagnosis. Kal: What gives you the right? What’s the difference between you and me? BoxOfficeMan (as he’s entering the Mobile App): I’m not the one with a blue cat person avatar! ------------------------------------------------------ At the weekend thread, Redfirebird is examining the aftermath of the ‘like’ heist. There’s plenty of banned members, and hardly any likes remaining. Redfirebird: What’s he hiding under that avatar? The BoxOfficeMan appears.k1stpierre begins to clear out the room. K1stpierre: Give us a minute, please, people! BoxOfficeMan: Him again? Who are the others? Redfirebird: Another bunch of small timers. BoxOfficeMan examines the remaining likes left in the thread. BoxOfficeMan: Some of the marked likes I gave you? Redfirebird: My detectives have been putting these into circulation for weeks. This weekend thread was another drop for the Frozen mob. That makes five weekend threads. BoxOfficeMan: Time to move in. Redfirebird: What about this Tele guy? BoxOfficeMan: One man, or the entire Frozen mob? The Telemachos can wait. Redfirebird: We’ll have to hit all threads simultaneously. SWAT teams, backup. When the new DA gets wind of this, he’ll want in. BoxOfficeMan: Do you trust him? Redfirebird: It’ll be hard to keep him out. I hear he’s as stubborn as you. The BoxOfficeMan has disappeared. Typical. ----------------------------------------------------- Accursed Arachnid goes to ShawnMR’s temporary headquarters to speak to him. He’s not there. That’s pretty typical. He goes off to the temporary Bat Cave, the DC Universe section where he finds ShawnMR tending to himself. Accursed Arachnid: When you stitch your forum persona up, you always leave a mess. ShawnMR: It helps me learn from my mistakes. Accursed Arachnid: You ought to be pretty knowledgeable by then. ShawnMR: My profile, it needs to be lighter. Faster. Accursed Arachnid: I’m sure Mr. RTH can oblige. *Examining ShawnMR* Did you get mauled by a poster? ShawnMR: It was a spam bot. A big spam bot. There were more copycats last night. Accursed Arachnid: Perhaps you can hire them and take some weekends off. ShawnMR: That wasn’t exactly what I had in mind when I said I wanted to inspire posters. Accursed Arachnid: I know. But things are improving. Look at the new district attorney. ShawnMR begins watching on a monitor as he sees 4815162342,now referred to as Numbers going forward. ShawnMR: I am. Closely. I need to know if he can be trusted. Accursed Arachnid: Are you interested in his character, or his social circle? On the monitor, ECSTASY, ahem, Dragon appears, who has replaced ECSTASY for the story along with Numbers. They are apparently an item. ShawnMR: Who Dragon spends her time with is her business. Accursed Arachnid: Well I trust you’re not following me on my day off. ShawnMR: If you ever took one, I might. Accursed Arachnid examines all the battle scars of ShawnMR. He has taken quite a few hits over the past month. Accursed Arachnid: Know your limits, Master Shawn. ShawnMR: BoxOfficeMan has no limits. Accursed Arachnid: Well you do, sir. ShawnMR: Can’t afford to know them. Accursed Arachnid: And what happens the day you find out? ShawnMR: We all know how much you like to say I told you so. Accursed Arachnid: That day, Master Shawn, even I won’t want to. Probably. TO BE CONTINUED.
  9. Hi, so I had this goofy idea to adapt the story of Box Office Forums and its various posters into the Batman universe since I found myself randomly inserting certain quotes and posters into various parts of the Nolanverse, that I seriously began the idea of actually just going through the whole thing. Am I crazy? Stupid? Maybe. But I figured it'd be kind of fun for me, and hopefully for you as well. What I'll try to do is set up the first part, and then set up subsequent parts with the 2nd post representing links to future scenes. We'll see if I can adapt the whole thing! Also, please understand it's very difficult to find a poster who's a perfect fit for each character, so some just sprung to mind. And without further ado... BOX OFFICE BEGINS ShawnMR: Ecstasy, let me see! A Young ShawnMR runs through the derby area of Box Office Mojo attempting to chase down a young ECSTASY, having found an arrowhead. Shawn finds Ecstasy, hiding underneath a table ECSTASY: Finders keepers, and I found it! ShawnMR: Finders Keepers! He steals the arrowhead and runs to hide, not realizing he is on top of a weak wooden plank. After a moderate creak, it breaks in half with ShawnMR falling through. At the bottom of the well, Shawn looks deep into the abyss when suddenly he is engulfed by a swarm of box office numbers. Suddenly…Shawn awakes in the present day -------------------------------------------------------- Mattrek: Did you have bad dream? ShawnMR: Nightmare. Mattrek: Worse than this place? ShawnMR and Mattrek are waiting in line, getting their rations for the day Mattrek: They are here to fight you. ShawnMR: Again? Mattrek: Until they kill you ShawnMR: Can they kill me before breakfast? Suddenly, Algren appears, slapping away ShawnMR’s food. Algren: You are in IMDB Box Office Forums little man….and I am…the DEVIL. ShawnMR: You’re not the devil…you’re practice! ShawnMR tackles Algren, viciously fighting off him and a slew of other insensitive posters in the mud. ShawnMR takes some hits, but clearly manages to fight off Algren and his goons with ease. Gunshots ring out, and ShawnMR is pulled away from the brawl Random IMDB mod: SOLITARY! ShawnMR: Why? IMDB Mod: For protection! ShawnMR: I don’t need protection! IMDB Mod: Protection for them! Algren and his goons lay on the ground, groaning in pain. ShawnMR is placed into a solitary forum of IMDB, enshrouded in darkness ------------------------------------------------------------ Mysterious Figure: Are you so desperate to fight posters that you lock yourself in IMDB to take them on one at a time? ShawnMR: Actually there were uh…seven of them. Mysterious Figure: I counted six, Mister Shawn. ShawnMR suddenly turns his head at the mysterious figure, shocked that someone mentioned his name ShawnMR: How do you know my name? Mysterious Figure: The internet is too small for someone like ShawnMR to disappear. No matter how deep he chooses to sink. ShawnMR: Who are you? Mysterious Figure: My name is Ducard but I speak for a man named Baumer. A man greatly feared by the box office underworld. A man who can offer you a path. ShawnMR: What makes you think I need a path? Ducard: Someone like you is only here by choice. You have been exploring the box office fraternity but whatever your original intentions, you have become truly lost. ShawnMR: And what path can Baumer offer? Ducard: The path of a man who shares his hatred of poor box office predictions and wishes to serve true analysis. The Path of the League of BoxOfficeTheory. ShawnMR chuckles, losing almost all interest in Ducard’s “offer.” ShawnMR: So you’re armchair analysts. Ducard: No no no, an armchair analyst is just a poster lost in the scramble for his own gratification. He can be ignored or slandered. But if you make yourself more than just an armchair analyst, if you devote yourself to an ideal…and if they can’t stop you, you become something else entirely. ShawnMR: Which is? Ducard: A legend, Mister Shawn. Tomorrow you will be released. If you are bored of brawling with IMDB posters and want to achieve something. There is a rare gif that grows in GoogleImages. Pick one of these gifs. If you carry it to Box Office Theory, you may find what you were searching for in the first place. ShawnMR: And what was I looking for? Ducard: Only you can know that. *TO BE CONTINUED*
  10. First, I would like to thank the users who voted this time around. A bit of an increase from last year. There were some changes this year to the top 10. I'am not able to do a presentation since I have had a really busy schedule these days. Results based on this thread and PMs sent to me: http://forums.boxoffice.com/index.php?/topic/12766-boxofficecoms-top-10-comic-book-movies-of-all-time-2013-ranking-thread/ Top 5 Comic Book movie based on Special Effects: Top 5 Comic Book Villains: Top 3 Comic Book Movies of 2013:
  11. I'd say around Captain America domestic/worldwide for both (175/200).The post-Justice League sequels could explode just like Marvel Studio solo films.
  12. Some people ask as to why a Justice League film has never been able to make it to the big screen during the previous decade. Some state that Nolan's attempts to ground Batman, not to mention his refusal to include other characters derailed any plans for that to take place. That's a load of bull. Batman Begins gave a slightly altered take on Batman, but nothing that couldn't be incorporated into a shared universe if WB wanted. They could have simply hired a new director to continue with the current franchise and blended it into other universes. No, the blame for this lies squarely on the shoulders of another man who is no stranger to adapting graphic novel properties for the big screen, X-Men director, Bryan Singer. The year after Batman Begins hit theatres, Singer unleashed what he called a "love letter to Richard Donner" in a film called Superman Returns. SR was, to say the least, a problematic film. But while the poor casting choices, bizarre characterizations, lack of ideas (with a plot that basically remakes the first film), definitely hurt the quality of the film itself, the main problem was that it also marketed itself as a sequel, indicating that the events of Superman 1 and 2 DID occur. In other words, for a shared universe to be possible, WB would have to retcon the hell out of Batman Begins, if not just reboot again altogether, to incorporate the events of the first two Superman films, which occurred years before Batman came into existence. However, given the far stronger critical and audience acceptance, as indicated by the much stronger home video sales and references in pop culture, there was no way BB was budging. Personally, I have no investment in a JLA film and could care less whether or not one ever gets made, but the bottom line is that Superman Returns was far more guilty of derailing any momentum for such a film than any of Nolan's Bat films.
  13. Obviously your choice could change once The Dark Knight Rises comes out, but for now, which is your favorite Batman movie and which do you think is the best Batman feature film?
