MARVEL V DC
With the never ending debate going on, time to throw my hat in the ring.
For me growing up Marvel was my gateway into the world of comic books it got me to sit down and watch characters such as blade, the x men kick arse on screen then Spider-Man came along with so many more. Marvel produced the best films but their characters never really connected but DC man! Those films sucked for the most part but those characters and comics they had depth, a graphic quality and a mythology that truly drew me into that world.
Then came Feige and the plan a series of interconnected movies that play individually but work as one massive story, were we ready for this. Out of the shadows came DC with Man of Steel and a series to rival them so who is better? Neither people!
The MCU has a scope and it works they make some big epic films (avengers) they are fun but seriously lack a cohesion of tone and story, the characters (phase 2 onwards) show a self knowingness to the fans with certain lines they utter but within the story it’s brought to a screeching halt. DCU has a realness and grounded nature to the character work but if only the films were more coherent with one voice leading the way instead being chopped to pieces and re shot by a committee, the major problem with justice league is you feel that Marvel voice creeping in with lines such as bat cave, Arthur curry you talk to fish and gone is that deep brooding nature of gods among men now we get a laugh a minute fest which muddies what has come before and seeing batman smiling is as awkward as it sounds.
Both have merits and both have faults, we have our favourites, neither one is better than the other it all depends on taste so let’s stop the fighting over what’s better, who got the best veggie meter rating let’s celebrate all of these films and that we get see our favourite characters on screen and inspiring us to be the best we can be. #dc #marvel #ironman #captainamerica #avengersendgame #thor #captainmarvel #batman #superman
