All you Marvel guys can have your little Avenger movie, but this is my MUST SEE summer movie.  Your team may have a Hulk, but mine has the GD Batman. :)

I'm waiting to see the trailer in front of Avengers.

I was a paid extra in some of the Dark Knight football stadium scenes, so I'm hoping to see myself when the movie comes out.   ;D

Your Team may have a Super Hero with no actual super powers (  ;) ), but our Team has a Scarlett Johannson and she pwns Hathaway.

as much as I"m totally looking forward to the Avengers' movie, next up WILL be The Dark Knight Rises.  And I agree I'd rather have ScarJo's Black Widow over AnnHath's Kittygirl any day.

I can't wait for The Avengers, and I will totally geek out for certain.  That said, I am confident that at the end of the summer, we'll be saying TDKR is the better movie.  Nolan has yet to disappoint.  This trailer looks amazing.

Looks pretty great, definitely looking forward to this one as well.  I saw someone mention the whole Avengers and Dark Knight comparison, and said the the Dark Knight will be a great film, while Avengers will be a great movie.  Meaning, there might be more to the Dark Knight, while Avengers will be a whole lot of fun.  I'm more of a Marvel guy overall, but like DC as well (particularly Batman), and personally I'm excited for both (and Spidey!).  It often turns into a whole Marvel vs DC thing, but I'm just a fan of superheroes in general.

The trailer for Batman does look amazing but it looks really depressing and slow compared to the Avengers. My five year old watched both trailers and was more pumped about the Avengers over Batman even though he loves Batman. The movie just isn't his kind of Batman. The Avengers is tailor made for a kid.  Too bad they are both rated PG-13 so he doesn't get to see either one.

Avengers and The Dark Knight Rises are very likely going to be two completely different animals.  The Batman series has largely been a character study of Bruce Wayne/Batman by director/writer Christopher Nolan.  And the new film seems like a further development in that story that's been established by Nolan. 

I just don't see how that's a reasonable comparison with Avengers which is the next story in a series of some 6 preceding films (with 5 directors) that developed the characters that we will see come together in this story.  The whole concept of bringing together these characters that can carry a movie on their own into this kind of format makes it a unique experience.

I get the feeling that I'll probably enjoy them both.  I think both movies have some great casts.  But I think I'll also appreciate the differences in the style of the stories.  Different does not necessarily mean better or worse.

I agree with you 100% Nick. Just like when Iron Man and The Dark Kinght were compared the summer they came out, I think these two films will be. I think they will both be great, but both very different from one another.

LITTLE Avengers Movie?  DC had a 30 year headstart on Marvel movies and still can't compete.  I like Batman, but another Dark Knight flick is like getting another Iron Man movie.  Great in it's own right, but not really on the same playing field as The Avengers.  When DC gets their act together with Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, Superman, and yet another Batman franchise, and can bring them all together in The Justice League, then you'll understand what this means to the Marvel guys.   ;)

A Justice League vs. Legion of Doom movie would be the mother of all comic book movies!
