This past Thursday on our Facebook page I said, "I'll be talking why DC Comics has Television show right but can't make a movie worth a penny or two and how Marvel has their movies right but can't do anything right with their television show."
When you think about it. Who has it right? Well, www.newsarama.com did a fun countdown called 10 Most Disappointing Superhero Movies where The Dark Knight Rises, Man of Steel and Green Lantern made the list. Personally, I like the Man of Steel but the other two films sucked. Then you have Marvel films like Avengers, Captain America: Winter Soldier and Guardians of the Galaxy which the story was awesome and some of the best comic book movies to watch. I'm not including Avengers: Age of Ultron because the action was good but not as good as first Avengers film. Here we are as Marvel has something right with the film on the big screen.
Yet, where Marvel has success that do fail on the small screen. Agents of Shield was to be this big super, kick-ass show and the ratings have dropped since the first season. Yes, television critic's hate the storyline and some people say it's boring and thought some Marvel heroes would be showing up in the Television series. Yeah, how the hell ABC renewed for a third season? Given I still need to finish up the last 5 episodes on my DVR soon. Agent Carter was something different and learning more of the back story is interesting and it makes the comic book fan go, "Oh yeah" that's what we want! Does it happen...NO. Hats off to Netflix with Daredevil. This is one series that is actually really good by Marvel. This is what comic book fans want. No bullshit, just awesome action with the character we loves and I love that this series ties in the Avengers movie line. Nice job!
Let's jump back to DC once again.
As a stated before DC movies on the big screen suck. I have very high hopes in a few month for Batman/Superman film but when your going up against Captain America: Civil War. DC is in for a fight. Yet, the success of the big might not in the their favor but the success of the small is one of the best. Show's on the CW like Arrow, and The Flash are flipping awesome to watch. The start from the beginning and drawing comic book fans for more is great.
I wasn't a huge comic book fan of both comic characters but after watching the series. I'm liking it and I'm excited to see what the future hold for both these shows. Other DC show that is awesome is Gotham from Fox. I love Batman, I've said on Facebook and other stories, that Batman is one of my favor all-time characters. DC is doing everything right on the small screen by telling the story and letting the character develop in front of our eye's. That's what comic book fans want to see, right?!
Don't get me wrong, I'm not bashing DC or Marvel both are good in their own fields, Marvels is the big screen and DC's is the small screen. Yet, the two companies write some killer comic book issues for everyone to enjoy. So what do you think? I'd like to hear your thoughts about DC/Marvel.
