Spider-Man was (and still is) owned by Sony. They are sharing the rights with Marvel: Sony are financing the upcoming solo Spider-Man film while Marvel has creative control - they picked Tom Holland to play him and chose the director etc. Good call IMO.(Original post by Stiff Little Fingers)
He was owned by Fox (like the X-Men) until last year, so Marvels film studio couldn't use him.
It's ironic that the only good DC films so far are Christian Bale and Michael Keaton's Batman films when they're not actually part of the current universe DC is building so they don't count. I did enjoy Man Of Steel but it worked better as a solo film and did nothing to establish a continuity like Marvel have been doing for years. DC started their universe as an afterthought in the wake of Marvel's success, made some hasty decisions and stuffed too much into Batman V Superman, which is why it didn't do well. I haven't seen it myself, but I can already tell that Captain America is the superior film.(Original post by AmirahxRashid)

In my opinion, I think generally Marvel do better films and DC have the better TV shows. It really depends on what you enjoy though, for the most part. DC feels a lot darker, but I enjoy the Marvel films more. I prefer the characters, the sequencing of all the films in the MCU, and the direction. That being said, Gotham is really great.

Its not even close Marvel by a long way. DC have a lot of work to do to catch up Marvel with regards to the films.

If you are looking for an amazing (yet childish) movie, Marvel is the way forward.
Even though sometimes DC movies can be full of holes, they pack mature scenes that comic-book movies need to give us a break from the ridiculousness of some Marvel movies. Don't get me wrong, I LOVE Marvel Movies, but I don't think you can judge either DC nor Marvel above each other because they cater towards a different audience:
Marvel caters towards a fun story for kids and for selling toys,
DC caters towards a darker themed and toned move for adults, with fairly weak stories, yet a very visual experience.
That is all, humans.

After watching Batman vs Superman: Dawn of the Sequels and Captain America: Civil War, a friend made the point to me that while both films do the whole ethical dilemma of superheroes and whether they should be liable for the damage caused by their heroism, Captain America did it so much better.
Such as actually having the dispute between them clear and running throughout the film rather than just tossing in the fight at the end as an after thought, with the context as to why they were fighting clear, rather than just "****, we need to make them fight - insert plotpoint here" and having a villain who wasn't just stock zany maniac, and balancing the levity (mostly from anything Antman did tbf) with the serious themes and the serious themes being done through characterisation rather than just filming in the dark... The points can go on really, since Batman vs Superman: The Justice League: The Trailer was such a dreadful pile
Given Marvel is obviously miles ahead of DC in the film making stakes, what does DC need to do to catch up?
Yes, you could argue Marvel is aimed at kids also, but it's the only one out of the two that makes me react like a little excited fangirl who's highschool crush just noticed her for the first time, everytime they release something.
