Quote:in that the Marvel movies feel more like Superhero movies and are more willing to incorporate humor, and do so pretty effectively....
Quote:I think that rings true to a large degree. I think there are other contributing factors though.
Quote:Marvel kind of stumbled onto a formula of teasing some upcoming stuff at the end of movies, but also let us not have to spend every film doing an origin...meaning that we get more ability to develop the antagonists....JLA forced characters together and didn't do a great job of it, and also didn't develop the villain well...so it fell flat. It also made it feel like they needed Superman for anything...too dependent on one powerful character.
Quote:Doomsday, the death of Superman gets tacked on to the end of an a movie spent building up the angst that Batman has over Superman...sorry, but it would have been better to build the JLA up first so they could fight Doomsday and fail, and do a PROPER job of the death of Superman, which deserved its own event...
Quote:Yeah, I can say 'poor writing', but I don't know what constraints anyone was working under. Marvel developed the interconnectivity more organically, so were first and foremost concerned with making a good Iron Man movie, and then Hulk movie (though the Hulk wasn't as successful).
Quote:DC had the opportunity to plan a little better, and used it to focus only on the later result, not a quality film at the start that builds. I think they could have learned and done a better job than Marvel, but every film feels like a restart, not a continuation....
I won't even pay to go to see the next DC movie unless I hear good reviews about it. DC has really set a tone of mediocrity with BvS and JLA. Wonder Woman gives them a sliver of hope though, so there's that.
Deathstroke and Legion of Doom looks promising but DC finds a way to bomb things that should have been a slam-dunk set-up for future success. Opportunity to create, incorporate, domino great stories suppressed possibly lost. Future euphoria lost in the wind.
A real shame too. Marvel has no-doubt left them in the dust.
Can't wait to see Black Panther!!! Previews look totally AWESOME!!!
