Better then Michael Bay.

You joke but the truth is, I'm not a superhero fan. I dislike the whole concept of superheros and I don't read comics. So I'm not fanboying like all "DC master race, Marvel suck" just because I was brought up on DC or something.
I genuinely hated The Avengers (and other Marvel super hero movies I got halfway through before giving up on like Antman. Even Deadpool wasn't as good as people are making it out to be) and LOVED Man of Steel. I also loved Dark Knight (and Rises). So.. conclusion DC > Marvel.

The best way I can put it is that DC movies (the 3 I've seen... though will be pretty keen to see Superman v Batman now) are more gritty, more adult. They explain things a lot better, they have more plausible situations (as far as plausible goes for sc-fi). They make what is happening fit far better. There's reasons behind shit. There's a reason why Zord (is the main bad guy in Man of Steel Zord? Zorb? whatever it is) is attacking Earth is very well explained, it makes sense.
The relationship between Joker and Batman. And Joker wanting Batman to kill him because it goes against everything Batman stands for (not killing, though I understand he don't give a shit in SM v BM but Jokers not in that universe so it doesn't matter) and so if Batman does kill Joker it's like Joker wins anyway, so Joker wins if he succeeds or if Batman eventually kills him. It's interesting the pull back and forth. They're almost like some dark gritty drama than a superhero movie.

And even the movies themselves. Man of Steel fight scenes were incredible, some of the best visual effects I've ever seen in an action movie. That bit with Zord on his knees and the lazer eyes, omg that looked visually incredible.

And the humor is better. It's "non-American humor" as I call it. It's intelligent humor, witty comments, subtle hints etc.. not pie to the face fart gags that Americans lap up like mindless idiots.

The Avengers in comparison are so straight edge cookie cutter. Good guy chilling, bad guy comes along, good guys go all 'Murica!! and fight bad guy. Good guys win. They do shit that doesn't make sense. The fight scenes are dumb. The superheros themselves are very unlikable (with the exception of maybe Iron Man but even than his character personality doesn't really fit a superhero) they do stupid shit that you just sit their like "why don't they just do XX..." etc.. The humor sucks. They're just typical retarded American action movies with shitty predictable stories and awful characters in god awful costumes that aren't funny.

The best comparison I can think of is Marvel movies are Mike and Molly, DC movies are How I Met Your Mother.

What Filox said.

Superman character has been changed so many times in movies and the comics. This is this version of him. Just like that's that version of Batman in BMvSM.

Personally I like what they did. Clark wanted to help people but his adopted Dad knew that the world would treat him like a freak and so he needed to be revealed to the world when he was most needed so that people wouldn't immediately treat him like a freak and hate him and instead see him as the superhero he is who saved them. His adopted Dad gave his life for that (in what was a very good scene that had me weeping like a little girl). So it shows the struggle he goes through where he desperately wants to help people but is torn between helping and hiding and so that's why he travels around and uses anonymous names etc..
And so it's like when he's Clark Kent, he can protect himself from being treated like a freak so he can human. But when he's needed he can put on the suit and be Superman.
It's brilliant.

It's what you don't get in Marvel movies. You don't get internal conflict. All you get is "I don't wanna put on the suit, oh wait my crush has been kidnapped ok I'll put on the suit.".

I enjoyed the Avengers, and many Marvel movies (Deadpool, Guardians), but I can definitely see that they're formulaic and mindlessly predicable. The things I like, though, are the little details.. Like in Ironman 3(?) where the random henchman drops his gun and says "woah... Wait... I don't even like working for this guy. He's really weird.." Or something. The Marvel universe isn't really pulling me in, but sometimes you just want something in good fun.

No, they aren't. If Peter Fucking Jackson wanted to tell a different story then he should not have called it Lord of the Rings. That title was already taken.

Deal with that.

Better because they're grimmer and darker?

People like you are the reason comics in the 90's sucked. You probably owe Rob Leifield a check or something.

There was a hobbit, a ring, a volcano, a dark lord, some elves and dwarfs and orcs and shit. It was the same story and it was a fucking masterpiece. How you cannot see those movies as anything short of instant classics is beyond me.

Quote:Better because they're grimmer and darker?

Not necessarily because they're grimmer and darker. They're better because they're more intelligent, they have better stories. Though grimmer and darker often leads to a better story than just mindless 'Murica!

Different story? If he had called it anything else, people would have said it was a complete rip off of LOTR... So while it had changes, it was about as good of an adaptation as we could expect.

The Hobbit movies sucked, but I really don't understand what your issue was with LOTR
