Although its a long way coming, I cant be more excited! Each year containing at least two DC Comics movies is a huge step up from 5 years ago. We were getting about two DC movies every 4-5 years. If this plan is a success, i believe they wll have caught up to Marvel in their Hugely Successful Marvel Cinematic Universe. A few reasons why I believe DC’s plan is much better than Marvel’s is because…
1. No connection to the Tv Universe. Unlike Marvel, DC will not be connecting their Tv series with their cinematic universe. This is smart because it gives the Tv directors and the Movie directors a lot more creative freedom because they dont have to think about how it affects the Tv show, and how the Tv show affects the Movie universe. It’s also better because, people dont have to keep in touch with every single show just to know whats going on. For example, The Flash tv show actor will not be the same as the movies actor because they don’t want to limit the directors creativity.
Second reason, is the Movie lineup. When Marvel created their cinematic universe they had started off with origin stories, then leaded up to a huge team up, but DC is doing the exact opposite. They are starting with a huge team up, then branching off into own character stories. I believe this is much better because you can introduce a character less known into the team up movie such as aquaman, and make him well known and popular. So when their own movie releases, many people will know the character and interested in him as he was popularized in previous films. Also announced was a stand alone Batman and Superman movie, but no release date. I’ll make sure to keep you guys updated 😀
