Some rivalries are born to last forever and one of these is MARVEL VS DC.
I as an individual am a fan of both the universes equally and if not for the sake of the debate I would never choose anyone.
But at some point, I think MARVEL is a better universe altogether and the foremost reason is that DC didn’t have STAN LEE.
The connection that the MARVEL universe provides to its viewers due to its relatable and humane characters where even Gods like Thor suffer from depression and obesity which was used as humor content is one of the things that DC has failed to instill in these few decades.
At the end of INFINITY WAR and ENDGAME, we were able to experience a cohesive strategy of an integrated MARVEL universe that is still to be successfully exploited by DC.
Marvel’s perfect casting when it comes to the characters – Robert Downey Jr. As IRON MAN, as well as taking risks to cast unfamiliar actors like Chris Hemsworth as THOR and Letitia Wright as SHURI has had a lasting impact on the success of the universe.
The INFINITY WAR and AVENGERS ENDGAME were the most anticipated movies in 2018 and 2019 respectively
Another milestone by the movies of marvel universe includes the first Academy Awards Nomination for Costume and Effects for the movie BLACK PANTHER.
Marvel’s interconnected universe at its disposal leaves spaces for new friendships and rivalries that are even anticipated in the future also, which is the heart of the matter.
One striking difference between the two universes, the character development in DC, primarily in Batman was astonishing and overwhelming. Whereas, the characters of Marvel undergo some change in their features and characteristics and remain the same at the core.
As for the conclusion, I believe that both the universes have different ways to express the stories of the characters but the better of the two in both the Stories and Collection at the Box Office is MARVEL and it is now at an unrivaled position with a large fan base and better hopes for the future in PHASE 4 that includes:-
- Black Widow
- Wanda Vision
- Falcon and the Winter Soldier
- The Eternals
- Shang Chi and The Legend of the Ten Rings
