I don't think the argument is simply about TDK being the best superhero movie of all-time anyway, tbh. It's the litmus because it cemented the idea of a superhero movie that insisted people stop saying it's really good ... for a superhero movie, and instead just say it's a really good movie.
For some people Spider-Man 2 had already done this and brought the idea into inception. For many like myself, Begins did this and made it the hallmark. But on the scale of general movie goers and critics, TDK punched that idea thoroughly home, and that'll always be its place.
And then some people just genuinely find it to be their favorite/best superhero movie of all-time, and more power to 'em because it's hardly a wacky idea, as it was great.
Honestly I think its because of the hype when the movie came out, and it didn't disappoint most.
Plus all the Joker avatars made this place fun. Mine was the best: Joker Cena performing an STFU.
I didn't think TDK was cartoony at all. There were moments of James Bond-like outlandishness, but cartoony is too extreme. Begins had those same moments. Everyone seems to have different opinions on which movie in the trilogy is the most comic book-like.
The Dark Knight gets talked about the most because it was a pop culture phenomenon. Ledger's Joker played a big part in that, but the marketing took it to the next level as well. Then the movie delivered on the hype.
Boyd Holbrook was great as well. Can't help but think he'd do terrific as Gambit.
Got out of work early, no kids to pick up. Sitting in the theater now waiting for Logan to start. I've heard good things. Can't wait!
I'm curious why Gambit hasn't been a more prominent character with any spin-offs. He was my favorite X-man growing up and still one of the coolest, concept-wise.
