Reply Subj: Why are Marvel movies doing so much better than those in DC...also shared tv universe stuff

So, I liked Wonder Woman a lot, and I enjoyed Suicide Squad, but I found JLA to be mediocre at best, and I felt Bats vs. Superman went on too long...Doomsday was an afterthought, and Superman's death didn't have the impact it could have. MOS was OK, not great IMO, but better than JLA or B vs. Superman.
I actually enjoyed about 75% of Suicide Squad, but felt the Joker was overused and actually took away from the cohesion of the movie...villain wasn't great, but acting was good, and I liked some of the characterizations. Still wasn't great.
For the Marvel movies, I think some of them get too much credit, but save for Iron Man 3, I've really enjoyed all of them. I think Spider Man Homecoming is one of the best movies I've seen in a long time, and I also really liked Ragnarok.
On the TV side, I like that Marvel is still in the same shared universe for Agent Carter and the Shield show, but I'm not the biggest fan of Agents of Shield...it started OK, but they've gone too hard and heavy into Kree and Inhumans...I understand why, but that makes it a loser for me.
As far as the DC TV goes, I like the Arrowverse, the interconnectivity, the characters, the actors, etc. I still think Legends is the weakest, though I have liked Rory as a character...frankly, I like the Arrow and Flash characters enough that I would have preferred them to what we saw in JLA...
