The age-old argument: Marvel or DC?
The fans of both corporations claim that every Marvel or DC film that has been released has something to say about the superhero culture in each of their own universes (Marvel Universe, EUCM; or the DC universe, DCEU). Which of the two presents the strongest movies, comics, or character development inside their universe is a constant topic of discussion among the audience or fans of both Marvel and DC. Therefore, I will discuss the occasions that affect people's preference between Marvel and DC in this post and offer my thoughts on each of them.
Due to the huge transformation that superheroes have brought to films, their distinct and entertaining storylines, and their cutting-edge visual effects, both DC and Marvel have had a significant impact on the film industry.
The Batman stories have consistently been one of DC's greatest successes, shocking the world by showing that superheroes can have human emotions and a rich history. Many of the DC movies feature good superheroes, who were praised by the public for being unusual and original, but they rarely had a good argument for why they are connected to the cinematic universe or a good development of them. There is also very little effort put into the special effects that can be seen in his films.
The popular Marvel films, however, include Spiderman, Iron Man, X-men and their prolonged movie stages that continued into “Endgame” (the final and best marvel's movie of the fase 3). The public has acclaimed each of these movies for their amazing effects, character development, and musical score.
Comparing the two companies may be challenging because each offers a distinctive experience in their movies, but we can agree that Marvel has a remarkable cinematographic line that connects the first film to the last (up until 2019's Endgame), has special effects that are distinctive, and has an excellent soundtrack that keeps you entertained. DC has always included real, strong superheroes in addition to its villains, but its filmography hasn't progressed much in comparison to Marvel's.
