I haven't seen any comic book movie in a few years save for the odd Marvel film like Avengers or whatever

But none have ever really matched the quality in TDK, but has anything really stood out like "better than TDK!" from the critics or something similar? Performance wise? Villain wise? Heath Ledger as the Joker is hard to top because that was a flawless performance.

A few of the Marvel movies have passed it imo.

Infinity War exists, but it'll seem like a big jumbled mess if you go in without the background of seeing all the other MCU movies before it.

But if you mean a single comic book movie that doesn't require the viewer to have seen 18 other movies before it to know who all the characters are, then I would agree with Dark Knight.
This is no time to be arguing about time! We don't have the time!

I still prefer the '89 Batman.

And are we just talking about superhero movies? Because I'd take plenty of comics/manga movies over it (not that I dislike Dark Knight or anything, it's great), like Ghost World, Old Boy, Our Little Sister, A History of Violence, American Splendor, Lady Snowblood, Persepolis...

TDK is great but the all-time comic book classic movie is Superman.

Winter Soldier and Infinity War surpassed it.

Nothing in the MCU comes close to touching how good TDK is, and I really enjoy a lot of the later stuff in the MCU.

The best? I don't know. There are plenty of contenders, but it's up there.
Sucking at something is the first step to becoming sort of good at something.
