Let me introduce you Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), it is an American media company that majorly produce series of superhero films, the characters of which had appeared in American comics books pulished by Marvel Comics, it also expands to television series, games etc. By now we have 18 films that has been made to show cast the marvel cenematic universe.


Starting from the first release Ironman (2008) we had The Incredible Hulk (2008), Ironman 2 (2010), Thor (2011), Captain America : The First Avenger (2011), The Avengers (2012) in first phase.

In phase two Ironman 3 (2013), Thor: The Dark World (2013), Captain America : The Winter Soldier (2014), Gaurdians of Galaxy (2014), Avengers : Age of Ultrons (2015) and finally Ant-Man (2015) marked end of second phase.

Phase three began with Doctor Strange (2016), Gaudians of Galaxy 2, (2017), Spiderman : Homecoming (2017), Thor : Rangnarok (2017), Black Panther (2018), Avengers : Infinity War (2018), Ant-Man and the Wasp (2018) and the upcoming are Captain Marvel (March 8, 2019) followed by untitled Avenger film or Avengers 4 (May 3, 2019) and to mark end of thrid phase we will have Spider-Man : Far From Home (July 5, 2019).

Each of them are eually packed with ultimate thrill and entertainment and fans can also easily connect between them.

On the counter part we have the DC Universe (DCU) more presicely The DC Extended Universe (DCEU), it is also an American media company owned by Warner Bros Company and produces series of superhero films, the character of which had appeared in American comics books by DC Comics.¬†The initials DC¬†came from¬†the company’s popular series Detective Comics, which featured Batman’s debut and subsequently became part of the company’s name.


The series started with Man of Steel (2013) followed by Batman Vs Superman : Dawn of Justice (2016), Suicide Squad (2016), Wonder Women (2017) and Justice League (2017).

In upcoming we have Aquaman (December 21, 2018), Shazam! (April 5, 2019) followed by Birds of Prey, Cyborg, Wonder Women 1984 and Green Lantern Corps schedeueld in year 2020.

From here begins stuff for pros also. So we basically sat down to restropect the two universes and these are the points that followed-

1. The very first reason over the upper hand of Marvel over DC movies is that they have taken time to set the plot for bigger movies, them had very amazingly made the viewers understand the timeline and worked enough to help them connect between the universes. Whereas DC started with man of steel in 2013, although being a good work but DC needs time to stand.

2. Marvel movies follow a particular style in all, as Kevin Fiegi directs all the films hence one can easily notice the uniformity along with this they have highly popular talents to display the chracter of MCU, they are more realistic, more humor, more variety and every new movie has inherent continuation with the timeline.

Whereas DC has no such particular style, its director Zack Synder and David Iyer many times strife over thier personal work, in other words DC movies individualy are great but as a whole lack continuation and relevence.

3. Marvel even after maintaining uniformity in basic trademarks it keeps variety in other aspects, for example most film have humor in them but one can also experience dark tone, like in Civil War. Whereas DC movies are better known for their intense and dark tone, but to attract more viewers the company in Wonder Women movie unnesessarily added humor in some scenes, that went wrong.


4.Marvel stands apart with its greatest talents in cast the Ironman Mr. Robert Downey Jr, Captain America Mr. Chris Evans, Black Widow Miss. Scarlett Johansson, Thor Mr. Chris Hemsworth and the list continues till the last character, on other hand DC cast include the Wonder women Miss. Gal Gadot, Superman Mr. Christopher Reeve and Mr. Henry Cavil (in Justice league), Batman by Ben Affleck and others, Joker Mr. Heath Andrew Ledge etc.


5. Marvel also have some drawbacks like it doesn’t have copyrights of many of its characters like X-Men, but like the agreement on spiderman with sony it might resolve with Fox for X- men in future but the problems for DC doesn’t seems to settle down in coming future which include bad editing, bad direction, uncertainity, delay in projects, inconsistency, no cooperation with Warner Bros company, etc.

6. But DC also has a huge potential to create its own universe, though we have Ironman, Captain America, Thor, Hulk very famous but if you remember, Superman and Batman were the first super heroes you all have being came to know about. Not only in heroes but DC have highly iconic villians too, even for the greatest fans of ironman, the joker of DC would be more compelling than any other villan in whole industry. Along with him DC has¬†Darkseid, Lex Luthar,¬†Sinestro,¬†etc whereas in counter-part, Marvel have Thanos, Ultron which are not that much wicked compared to DC’s.

7. DC also leads marvel in animated series and TV series, it has produced some most fascinating work in this field, which inculde Justice League, The new Batman Advantures, Superman : The animated series, Green Lantern : The Animated Series  and many more. DC is also fable and unbeatable in comics world, it is reason of survival of DC in movie industry.

8. Also DC have more oscar awards wins than Marvel.

CONCLUSION : We can say from the evaluation why the two giants are called bightest stars in cinema industry. Both have huge potential to compete with each other, and¬†of course¬†it is “WE”, the fans who will decide the fate of Marvel and DC.

Thanks for the time and patience.
