Batman Begins was just OK to me and only loved TDK because of the Joker (whenever he wasn't on screen it was just ok) so I can't imagine TDKR keeping momentun with TDK. Not to mention that its difficult for films to get that 3rd movie right.
Captain America, the first hour or so anyway, is right up there with the best superhero movies. I don't see how this is debatable.
As for Nolan's movies? I prefer Begins to TDK. TDK is so serious it's zooms straight over serious into corny melodrama. When Harvey Dent started pontificating at the dinner table i wanted to jump into the movie and pour a jug of water over his head. It's just so unaware of how inherently ridiculous it is it kinda becomes laughable for me. It need a bit of wit and less super serious monologuing from it's characters.
Just came back from Avengers. It's the best movie ever. Batman can go wipe his tears with Robin's underwear
for me it comes down to Nolan vs. Whedon, and Whedon wins, hands down. He's a better story teller, he's more faithful to the source material, and much better with the dialog and direction.
So far my anticipation for both the Avengers and TDKR is high. I'm feeling mixed about The Amazing Spider-Man though.
You're kidding, right?
I loved Dark Knight and have literaly zero excitement for the new batman movie.
I want to see Avengers and i hated every issue of the comic i read, go figure.
I'm going to a Marvel Movie marathon at AMC next Thursday, so I guess I am pretty hyped about Avengers. Though, to be fair, I'd probably do the same thing for the Dark Knight trilogy. (though it still feels weird to call it that.)

I am not a Batman fan, not by a longshot. But even I have to admit that DKR was hands down the best superhero flick ever made and probably always will be. That being said, I have NO interest in seeing the new movie (and I like intelligent, cerebral movies). With the excitement of the Avengers everywhere, I think all of the Batman buzz has been effectively siphoned.
I am also still butt-hurt that Sony did a reboot of Spider-man. I predict that the only people who will see ASM will be Spidey fans: casual people are still confused by the reboot or think that it is stupid/too soon to be rebooting.
I think the results of CBR's poll will represent the rest of the world's reaction (something I wouldn't expect very frequently).
