Dark Knight vs. Iron Man

If you ask Robert Downey, Jr, who seems to have an opinion on the matter:
He admits that DC Comics’ Dark Knight made him feel “dumb” and in need of a college education, likening the movie to a Ferrari engine.  Downey also alluded that there was too much going on in the plot.
His parting shot was (and I quote): “You know what? F**k DC comics. That’s all I have to say and that’s where I’m really coming from.”

Have you an opinion on which is the better bit of entertainment?
Or do you think they’re both great movies, just different?
Go with the numbers (Dark Knight took approx. 155 mil its first weekend, and is the third highest-grossing domestic film of all time with $442 million in sales as it topped the movie chart for a fourth straight weekend, Iron Man raked in about 107 mil opening weekend…) or cast your vote:

  1. it’s funny that Robert Downey Jr. said the Dark Knight is too sophisticated when he himself tends to sound so sophisticated
