MCU is doing so much better than DCEU.
but what I have noticed between Marvel and DC Comics is that Marvel tends to do better with their movies, but DC are generally more successful on TV. Marvel has Iron Man, Spider Man, Captain America, Thor, The Avengers, X-Men
etc, they are all big and highly successful movie franchises, whereas DC only really have the Batman
movies that still deliver good box office earnings more consistently, with the exception of the new Suicide Squad
movie of course. Superman
doesn't do well anymore, and I'm hoping the new Wonder Woman
movie would fair well in box office earnings (mainly because I love Chris Pine), but I'm not very confident.
BUT on the other hand, DC seem to fair better on TV than Marvel does...while the only TV series Marvel currently has airing is Agents of SHIELD
, which does not get good ratings, DC on the other hand has successful TV shows like The Flash, Supergirl, Lucifer
; which they all tend to get better ratings than SHIELD, DC also has Arrow
& Legends of Tomorrow
etc. Overall, DC has much more TV shows currently airing than Marvel, and some of their TV shows are more successful than the only TV series that Marvel currently has airing. Another thing I noticed is that DC also has more cartoons airing on TV and their Batman cartoons in particular are especially popular, whereas Marvel has less cartoons nowadays and they are less successful as the Batman cartoons.
So it really just depends on whether we're referring to movies or TV shows, when it comes to movies, there's no doubt Marvel exceeds DC by far, but when it comes to TV, it seems DC far overshadows Marvel.
I am not a fan of superheroes, but my boyfriend is and he makes me watch with him movies like Capitan America, Iron Man, Superman and Z Men. In return I make him watch with me Sailor Moon Classic and Sailor Moon Crystal. It is a fair compromise, isn't it?
haha my boyfriend and I are the same, I'm not into Superhero movies & TV shows much but my boyfriend is and he would often force me to watch all these Marvel and DC superhero movies and TV shows with him, while I sometimes force him to watch SM and other animes I love as compromise
he quite enjoy watching SM actually, he likes Sailor Uranus the most (not surprising)
but he especially loves to watch Attack on Titan
which I recently introduced him to.
