Captain America vs The Dark Knight, two trilogies that people enjoy very much, whether you’re a comic book movie fan or not. Christopher Nolan’s Dark Knight trilogy often seems to have no competitors when it comes to comic book movie trilogies. But since Captain America: Civil War, it has become a very debatable topic that deserves a thought. Our own Dewayne Edwards will look at both trilogies to give his thoughts on which one is better.

Captain America vs The Dark Knight: Who Had The Better Trilogy?

Captain America vs The Dark Knight, two action packed trilogies with awesome character development and story plots that play with our emotions. Key characteristics that we wish all movies have. When it comes to comparing movie trilogies to the Dark Knight Trilogy, it’s very easy to put the Dark Knight Trilogy on a high pedestal. But let’s not forget on the exciting action-packed journey that we were delivered with the Captain America Trilogy.

As I approach my thoughts on comparing these trilogies. I will focus on one trilogy at a time and give my opinions, that’s the key word of the day people, opinions, let’s not forget. When doing that, I will talk about the things I thought were good from each trilogy, but also their weaknesses..

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

So lets start off with the Dark Knight Trilogy, known as the godfather of comic book movies. Directed by Christopher Nolan, who took a different approach on super hero movies. An interesting approach, as he goes about it with a more realistic outlook; as real as he can try to make it with a millionaire dressing up as a bat to fight crime, but boy does it work. If you think about it or re-watch the trilogy, which I highly recommend, you can see how his approach of making the stories more realistic really stands out.

In my opinion, none of the movies in the trilogy – Batman Begins, The Dark Knight, and The Dark Knight Rises – are bad. They all do their job in delivering a good story. Of course, some are better than others.

That leads me to The Dark Knight, a film that has an amazing performance delivered by Heath Ledger playing Joker. With that spectacular performance and awesome plot, The Dark Knight is my favorite out of the three films. When looking at Batman Begins, Nolan was able to give us a great origin story that everyone already knew, and make it compelling and fun. I always have a good time watching this film when I get to it. Making it my second favorite one in the trilogy. Now with the last film in the trilogy, The Dark Knight Rises, it’s really hard coming out with a movie after such an amazing set of preceding films, everyone’s expectations are so high. Out of all the three films, I do believe this is the weaker of all the three. I still liked it, but it felt pretty dragging on to me. As a whole, as we all know, the Dark Knight Trilogy is a great one. Great stories, character development, character portrayals, and still probably one of the best villains in any movie. But nothing’s perfect, sometimes when watching the Trilogy, it can seem to drag on. The way Batman is portrayed when fighting is one thing that really stands out to me as a flaw, but I’ll move on before I start knit picking at every little thing.

Now to move on to the Captain America Trilogy. A trilogy that is part of a bigger universe, the MCU, but still finds a way to stand out. The Captain America Trilogy consist of, Captain America: The First Avenger, Captain America: The Winter Soldier, and Captain America: Civil War. The thing that I love about this Trilogy, is the way that it connects to the universe that it’s a part of, but still finds a way to stand on it’s own. At the same time, it’s sort of a flaw, given that if you didn’t see other films that are in the same universe, certain things in the movies may be confusing.

When looking at this trilogy, Captain America: The First Avenger, directed by Joe Johnston, I can say that it’s my least favorite of the Trilogy. It’s a film that I really like that I thought I wasn’t going to. But it still didn’t grab me like the other two do. Now when it comes to my favorite Captain America movies – between, Captain America: The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War – I am still not yet able to decide which one I thought was better. The both of them are directed by the Russo Brothers and they were able to make two amazing films. They were able to deliver on sequences that I thought I would never live to see. I love the characters and how much fun I have with both film.

So when deciding on which Trilogy to support, I’m going to have to go with the Captain America Trilogy.

Before you all attack me at once, let me explain. When you think of the Dark Knight Trilogy, or at least when I think of the Dark Knight Trilogy, there’s only one film that comes to mind – The Dark Knight. Of course, that’s as it should be, given that it’s such an amazing movie. But at the same time, the other two don’t stand out to me as much as The Dark Knight does in any sort of way. They’re good, but that’s about it.

When I think of the Captain America Trilogy, there are two films that stand out to me because they are both so good, I can’t decide which one I love more.  Yes, Captain America: The First Avenger stir much of  reaction in me, but it does add to Captain America’s character development and establishes who is as a person. That’s a big part of what we love about him so much.

Luckily, we are all able to own them both and watch them as we please.

But of course this is only one persons opinion.

Which would you choose?

Let us know in the comment section which trilogy you think is better.

The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
