Superhero movies have become all the craze in the last decade when Hollywood realized these films make a crapload of money. And superhero films make a whole lot of money because a larger demographic can watch it. Grandparents, parents, teenagers, children, every generation can find a reason to get into these movies at their own pace and enjoy the riveting spectacle.
Marvel Studios has had the most success at acquiring an audience willing to drag themselves off of the couch, step outside the house, get into their car or whatever form of transportation, and head to the theaters to see what’s going to happen in the next chapter of the franchise’s world-building.
But you can’t deny that DC Comics has tried to put their own stamp into the superhero conversation with films that have started a conversation of their own. Unfortunately, the conversations haven’t been overly positive.
But these franchises don’t just pertain to the last decade of superhero galore. We must think back to the Batman movies in the 80s and 90s’, the X-Men films in the 2000s, and The Dark Knight trilogy which spanned from 2005 to 2012.
Of these franchises that have given us so many superhero movies over the decades, which is your favorite?
Honestly, I am torn to pick a favorite. On one side, Marvel has managed to deliver powerful stories over the last decade with superheroes that I legitimately care about. And then on the other side with DC Comics its collection of heroes and villains are far more spectacular. Wonder Woman, Superman, Shazam, Aquaman, the only hero that seems like a regular human is Batman who, like Iron Man, uses his brain to create the ultimate superhero alias.
But definitely, at the end of the day, I’d have to pick Marvel. If DC Comics could find a way to give its lovable stories in the same way that Marvel Studios has taken care of its characters I’d probably pick DC Comics. Until then, Endgame is enough to convert me to the Marvel side of the spectrum.
