That is always a question of subjectivity. In addition, the look should always support the visual concept and the script.
Therefore, simply make a few tests.

Ultraprimes will be better ish due primarily to less glass getting in the way of the light path. But in truth; I find both of them far too sharp anyway. Flares, if you get any, will be more pronounced on the zoom again from more glass, and of course T Stop.

That all said, they should intercut very very well if you wanted to go that route, and if you're looking for your hero optics, that'll be down to whether you like to work with primes or zooms. Personally, I tend towards primes, but zooms will of course allow you to work a little bit faster (though will require a bit more overall light)
