Top 10 Reasons Why Spider-Man 2 is Better Than the Dark Knight

Both are considered good superhero movies but only one of them is good in my book.

The Top Ten

1 Spider-Man 2 is more entertaining to watch

Spider-Man 2 is more entertaining and interesting than the Dark Knight in about every aspect. - SomePersonYouHate

Not a fan of Dark Knight? - DCfnaf

Batman, Batman,
Does whatever a spider can
Spins a web, any size,
Catches thieves just like flies
Look Out!
Here comes the Batman.

Is he strong?
Listen bud,
He's got radioactive moods.
Can he swing from a thread?
Take a look overhead
Hey, there
There goes the Batman.

In the chill of night
At the scene of a crime
Like a streak of light
He arrives just in time.

Batman, Batman
Not so friendly alleyway Batman
Wealth and fame
He's a bat
Action is his reward.

To him, life is a great big bang up
Wherever there's a hang up
You'll find the Batman

2 Better ending

Although some articles here are wrong, I must say that I like this list but I prefer The Dark Knight - VainillaKid

The ending to Spider-Man 2 is far better than The Boring Edgy Knight. - SomePersonYouHate

3 Peter's struggle with his powers in Spider-Man 2 is more interesting than Bruce's motivation to stop the Joker

I find Peter struggling with his powers in Spider-Man 2 to be more interesting than anything Bruce's character is build up to in the Dark Knight. - SomePersonYouHate

4 Better acting

Most of the acting in The Dark Knight ranges from mediocre to average, Spider-Man 2 on the otherhand with the except of Kirsten Dunst has solid acting. - SomePersonYouHate

5 Better writing

I've seen both and Spider-Man 2 seems a lot more well written. - SomePersonYouHate

6 Doctor Octopus is a better villain than the Joker

Not to mention Doctor Octopus's motivation to become a villain is more interesting than the Joker's in the Dark Knight. - SomePersonYouHate

7 More likable characters

The only likable character that is ok in the Dark Knight for me at least is the Joker and that's only because his motivation is tolerable and Heath Ledger delivers some of the only good acting in that movie. - SomePersonYouHate

8 Better action and fighting scenes

The action in the Dark Knight is boring but the action in Spider-Man 2 is thrilling and suspenseful. - SomePersonYouHate

9 Better soundtrack

This is the only entry where I can completely disagree. You just can't beat Hans Zimmer's genius - cjWriter1997

The sound track to Spider-Man 2 beats The Dark Knight pretty easily. - SomePersonYouHate

10 The Dark Knight is too edgy and all over the place while Spider-Man 2 has a good balance and doesn't take itself too seriously

Spider-Man 2 is a superhero movie that's not too dark but not too light either. It has a good mix like the first Spider-Man movie. The Dark Knight only focuses on being dark and lacks that balance. Spider-Man 2 is a superhero movie that doesn't take itself too seriously but doesn't try to be too corny which is why I admire it more. - SomePersonYouHate

That's one of the reasons I didn't like the dark knight - BoyGenius234
