When it comes to superhero movies, you’re likely either a fan of DC or Marvel, but not both. There aren’t a whole lot of folks who like both equally. Some of that comes down to individual characters, as you might be partial to Batman or Superman, as opposed to Captain America or Spider-Man. Today, we want to lean in to all of that. When it comes to comic book films, do you go with DC or Marvel?
On the one hand, you’ve got DC and what was their DC Extended Universe. Prior to that, DC and Warner Bros. set the new standard for comic book adaptations with Christopher Nolan‘s trio of “Batman Begins,” “The Dark Knight,” and “The Dark Knight Returns.” Since then, their attempts to make an Extended Universe have struggled to get off the ground. “Man of Steel” was met with a polite response, but “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” “Justice League,” and “Suicide Squad” were decidedly not. The less tied together their works, the better, as seen with “Aquaman,” “Wonder Woman,” and the upcoming “Shazam!”
On the other hand, there’s Marvel and their Marvel Cinematic Universe. The MCU is over 20 films deep, and set to reach a true turning point with the upcoming “Avengers: Endgame.” What they began with “Iron Man” was well received, but under the guidance of Kevin Feige, what they pulled off with “The Avengers” was nothing short of revolutionary. From there, they’ve only built on that success, including “Black Panther” last year becoming a Best Picture nominee.
The choice is yours. Are you a DC or a Marvel backer? Which superhero film company do you prefer? Let us know!
