On your left..
this is rather sad.
Omg omg I didn’t know all the Spider-Man
Okay, you know what? FUCK Y’ALL.
FUCK EVERY SINGLE ONE OF YOU WHO REBLOGGED THIS SHIT AND DIDN’T REALLY FUCKING TALK ABOUT IT.
Did it ever fucking occur to you simpletons that WB/DC ENTERTAINMENT is by themselves? Did it ever fucking occur to you that ONE studio is putting out 9 connected films in 5 years whereas THREE DIFFERENT STUDIOS are putting out 20 films in the same amount of time?!
FACT: Marvel only gets to put their names on the movies. Otherwise, your fave Kevin Fiege and his MCU cronies HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH FRANCHISES LIKE THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, X-MEN, FANTASTIC FOUR ETC. DON’T FUCKING FORGET IT.
So let’s get a real fucking breakdown.
Marvel Studios: 11 films, 5 established franchises, 4 of these 11 films have titles. And according to Kevin, Marvel Studios is feeling a little overwhelmed and may not introduce new franchises after Ant-Man. Notice he only said this when talking about characters like Black Panther or Captain Marvel getting their own franchises.
FOX: 5 films. Only one untitled. We don’t know if there’s going to be any crossover with the Fantastic Four and the X-Men. Nothing has been said to suggest that. DOES NOT HAVE TO COORDINATE WITH MARVEL STUDIOS FOR ANY OF THESE FILMS.
SONY: 4 films. 2 franchises. One untitled. All have to do with Spider-Man. Again, DOES NOT HAVE TO COORDINATE WITH MARVEL STUDIOS.
DC ENTERTAINMENT: 9 films. Eight untitled. 5 NEW FRANCHISES (Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Shazam/Captain Marvel, The Flash, Cyborg) that will probably be established in this time, plus Man of Steel. And that’s only in the shared universe. They’re also developing/talking about doing Sandman, Suicide Squad, Fables, Justice League Dark (Del Toro could be involved with writing/directing which is v exciting) etc. Not to mention Arrow, The Flash, and Gotham tv shows.
DC Entertainment has their hands in ALL OF THAT. ALONE. And yes, it’s going to take some time for them to become a well-oiled comic book film machine. Marvel Studios has had QUITE sometime to figure all of this stuff out. They’ve been planning interconnected films since at least 2006. And they changed the game. Set a new precedent. Raised the bar. No one is trying to take that feat away from them. They done good. They made tons of cash, which is the point of all this. It would actually be fiscally irresponsible for DC to not make a similar business model as Marvel’s. So, that’s what is happening. They are still planning. You think Marvel had all of their titles and dates planned out in 2006?! Not at all. And yes, they’ve said they have films roughly planned to 2028, but that’s because they’ve found a model that works for them. DC is still figuring it out. (Also, who’s to say those movies that Marvel has planned will work out?!).
Let’s not forget that the MCU between Iron Man in 2008 and Thor in 2011, the MCU went through a rough patch and had to get their shit together before they sky rocketed. That’s kinda where DC is right now. Once DC gets all their shit together (because they only have part of their shit together at this point), there will be no stopping them.
Don’t get me wrong; I love Marvel and what the MCU’s got going on, but I also really love DC. And the two companies produce different yet equally important heroes! Kinda like what theamazingspiderboy said, Marvel has the relatable heroes; the heroes that we already are. DC has a pantheon; the heroes that we should strive to be.
And guess fucking what? The MCU will fall. It is inevitable. Their fall from grace will be loud, it will be violent, and many people will be disappointed. I am ready for that. I’m not hoping for that, but we all know that great empires fall. And new ones will rise. And who knows, DC might be on the up and up during Marvel’s downfall. And all you fakes will jump ship and talk about how much you’ve always loved DC.
- MARVEL FUCKED UP IN THE BEGINNING AND NOW TWO OTHER STUDIOS OWN THEIR PROPERTY.
- THE SUN DOESN’T SHINE OUTTA MARVEL’S BOOTYHOLE
- DC IS STILL IN THE PROCESS OF FINDING A MODEL SIMILAR TO THE MCU’S THAT WORKS FOR THEM AND THEIR STORYTELLING ABILITIES.
- DC, THOUGH DIFFERENT FROM MARVEL, IS STILL GOOD.
- IT’S OKAY TO LIKE BOTH MARVEL AND DC
- STOP PUTTING THEM AGAINST EACH OTHER
