DC is better, their storylines are darker and carry a more mature theme, I think that the batman Arkham series of video games were impeccable, I feel the characters have more depth to them but there is no doubt that marvel (particularly the MCU) produce more good films than DC does (excluding the animated DC ones which are amazing)

In terms of their cinematic universes, the MCU is so much better than the DCEU it's not even funny. The DCEU is an absolute shambles, they should be embarrassed by the state it's in.

When looking at their overall filmographies it's a tougher call. Stuff like the Batman films from Nolan and Burton, and Snyder's Watchmen (the director's cut, at least), claw them back into contention. Marvel is definitely more consistent overall though, and Logan has shown they're capable of producing equally impressive prestige pieces aimed at more mature audiences.

I agree. I'm a huge fan of both but always a bigger DC fan. MCU Is great but overall I think think DC has more depth. Comics in DC are a lot better too and so is the animated stuff. Marvel Netflix is very good and cloak and dagger is very good. The dark knight trilogy is a cinematic masterpiece.

In terms of movies- Marvel
In terms of comics- DC

Marvel's current comics are actually really bad imo. Marvel has always been a bit too kiddish and cautious in their themes compared to DC but there was a time when Marvel actually wrote gritty stuff and had amazing storylines. E.g. Annihilation, Winter Soldier, Civil War (first one not the second one) etc. Marvel needs to stop pandering to sjw nonsense and write decent storylines.

Marvel’s cinematic universe is great. However, I’ve always felt DC won in comics and villains and well... backstories overall.

I mean, the new Joker film may be what DC need. Shazam wasn’t even that bad either.

Marvel - greatest Cinematic Universe across all time and space and every dimension.
DC - Comics are so much better than marvel but I hopes for DC because of aquaman and Shazam

(But I’m still rooting for Marvel :jumphug: )

Personally I much prefer marvel to DC. Even if they made some mistakes in the beginning with villains they've really progressed. Take Thanos as an example, I cried when he threw Gamora over the cliff because he was distressed about and could see how he was struggling as a character. Another example is Vulture- I was not expecting that twist! Yes DC has had some hits, notably TDN but it's had some catastrophic misses. As a kid we went from asking whether Batman or superman was stronger to Ironman and Captain America, which illustrates how the DCU has failed (though it is starting to recover with Shazam and Aquaman)

The Joker is a standalone film which they've never struggled to do well with, not a part of the DCEU.

DC is currently better than marvel in comics,thanks to sjw people in marvel.But overall they are both equally good. The best selling single issue is X-Men (vol.2) #1, published by Marvel in 1991.

Marvel if only films matters. They are constantly good and just a few were disappointed and couldn't come up with my expectations, the most even bested them.
