I'd really like to know... Man of Steel was just an out and out bad film that not only had objective pacing issues and hamfisted writing, but betrayed the character so badly that I can't even say it was Superman.
To me, Man of Steel was a fine, fun movie with some good storytelling and the best Superman character so far. YMMV, as we say. I mean, in Superman II he flat-out murders Zod for no reason. At least here he had little choice, and he couldn't just stop the battle to save individual people caught in the cross-fire.

Iron Man... eh, big fun popcorn flick.
Yeah. Fun and good, but not one for the history books, unlike the first one.

Star Trek has an intellectual aura about it thanks to the series and then will never truly be as huge as a movie that, might be well written, but is all about the popcorn experience.
Not sure I follow you. Movies are, by their nature, and on average, more action-oriented than novels, comics, series and plays.

Still doesn't refute the simple nature that Star Trek is the better film of the three.
Let's agree on that.
And that's my opinion.
