Fun Fact: The reason Chris Evans is holding his hand over his face in this scene, is that he was holding on a prosthetic that covered up his beard which he had to grow for another role.

When it comes down to DC vs. Marvel films, Marvel will always make more money/ be more successful with it's films. It comes down to two very separate styles, and two very different corporate entities behind the films.   
   
DC is going for a more serious approach, dramas with a plot, some action, and a need to be taken seriously by adults. They are past an age of "campy" films like Batman Forever. They see comic books as more than cartoons, but as serious writing, with dark storylines and meaning behind character's existence.   
   
Marvel on the other hand is going for a more light-hearted approach.  The plots to their movies may be weak, but they make up for it with star power, lots of injected humor, and fun action. They see comic books as colorful and sometimes laughable cartoons with memorable characters.   
   
All that being said, Marvel has the Disney juggernaut backing it, so it will always be able to afford more advertising/ get more appeal out to it's intended audience. In addition, although I am a die hard Batman fan, I think Avengers took the right approach. I believe more people like to laugh than to cry, so to speak. A lighthearted film will always be more appealing than a drama when it comes to comic book movies anyhow   
   
Just my two cents

I agree 100 percent. It's a shame that Snyder felt the need to shove a huge fight scene at the end to make up for a supposed lack of action in the rest of the movie. It's like the first half of the movie was aimed for a mature audience and the other half was aimed at a lighthearted crowd and it didn't work well
User avatar #197 to #168 - luciferiam (06/25/2013) [-]
Eh, I get what your saying. But the thing about the Batman trilo for example (and at the very least MoS was a decent origin story even if you didn't like it (personally I enjoyed it plenty) is that it will LAST longer then the Marvel movies. 50 years from now The Dark Knight will probably still be a classic while no one remembers Avengers 1 when Avengers 15 has come out.

a movie with deadpool would be god awful.
Sure he has some good stories, but directors arent going to read a **** ton of comics for the movie, at most they would probably just skim over the most popular stories(which are probably Waypool stories), which would lead to probably a pretty boy deadpool with a personality deep as a sheet of paper with constant breaking of the fourth wall and out of characterness every where

They actually have to make a deep research when creating a new character like that.
#115 to #65 - Rascal (06/25/2013) [-]
He's getting one, Ryan Reynolds is playing Deadpool and as he's a massive Deadpool fan he's making sure it's going to be awesome. 18+, breaking the fourth wall, etc. As the Deadpool in that X Men film was unfortunately piss poor they're basically forgetting that film existed and creating a real Deadpool film. Apparently a script has been leaked and it's supposed to be really good, haven't seen it though.

Have faith my friend, in my honest opinion a die hard fan of Deadpool wouldn't sign up to play Deadpool if it wasn't a great film. Ryan Reynolds is a damn awesome guy aswell, we're in safe hands I'd say.
#188 to #115 - Rascal (06/25/2013) [-]
The problem is getting the budget they need to make the movie good. Since it's pretty much guaranteed to be R rated, it's hard to find backers for it. At least in comparison to the other superhero movies that have come out in the past few years.

It's all in the way the chicken / beef is prepared, from the spices to the roasting process. It's roasted much like the beef from the Greek gyros (Greek food tastes delicious oh my god) the chicken is sliced from the rack and fried slightly then rolled in a loaf of pita with whichever you choose, original shawarmas (going by the Syrian recipe) just had tahineh (wheat / plain yogurt mixture) and pickles, and the pita was pressed against the rack to absorb some flavour and heat.

If you've ever had a falafel, it's essentially the same thing except with meat

Marvel's goal is to bring back comic books for the younger ages. Thus why they are making a monopoly of movies in the same universe. They want a young fan base and build off of it while still keeping the adults involved with some adult concepts and jokes that kids wouldn't really understand. They are reviving the superhero for the kids.

DC's movie goal is to reimagine superheroes in a realistic light that can be grasped by adults primarily and relates to the modern day culture and themes. The Batman films were dark and gritty, but the trilogy as a whole stood as "be a hero no matter the circumstances" with linings of hope. It even dismisses the 'greater good' idea that this society had been holding. If Batman saved Ra's, Talia and Bane would never have sought revenge on him and Gotham. If Gordon and Batman had not chosen to lie about Dent, the Bane situation would have been alleviated a bit with less initial support from the people of Gotham. it even goes farther back. Batman is a symbol of justice and hope. Killing is always wrong because it muddies the image. The image of a hero never dies (thus Gordon Levitt being implied as taking up the cowl at the end of TDKR).

Man of Steel does the same: you do right no matter what. Even if someone deserves less than good treatment, you do the right thing. Not only does Superman imply "do not harm," it advocates for supererogatory actions, going above and beyond the call of action like a true hero. Killing, even when it is absolutely necessary, is to be mourned as a loss of life like the end of the film. Yet again we have visions of hope in this DC movie. DC has taken the noble effort against post-modern society and art, saying being good is not meaningless and bringing back the idea of hope. The era of Watchmen is over, we are in a more Golden Age again, though with necessary grit.

I wouldn't go that far but when I did rewatch it I didn't enjoy it near as much. The Marvel movies won't particularly last a decade down the line.

This is off topic, but how can they make a Guardians of the Galaxy movie without Nova? Richard literally made the team possible (combining Starlord and Gamora and Drax, finding Knowhere, convinced Starlord to be Starlord again.) Just seems weird that they skip this important piece.
#63 to #56 - hankpym (06/24/2013) [-]
I think in the new guardians of the galaxy series it has a different origin
User avatar #201 to #63 - luciferiam (06/25/2013) [-]
I'm fairly sure it has the same origin, we just don't know how Star Lord got out of the cancerverse, and we have no idea whats happened to Rider.

As NKC said, Nova is confirmed.

The Nova Corps have been confirmed dude. Rich Rider will probably be a basic Nova Corps-man then will end the film as Nova Prime when the whole army get's ****** up.

Seems to be a lot of Marvel hate recently.
I like DC and I like Marvel but I prefer Marvel
DC fanboys think their movies are so deep and Marvel is just mindless action and that all Marvel fans are teen girls
I hate fanboys and fangirls of everything, they are either retarded or all they do is bitch
#23 to #21 - jinapayne (06/24/2013) [-]
And I do understand there are tons of wannabe nerd Marvel fans, there are tons at my school and I hate them all and they make DC fans think they are superior
#12 - Rascal (06/24/2013) [-]
most of marvel fans never picked up a comic in their life, they base their opinions on the movies alone,

dont get me wrong if you are a marvel fan and proud and read the comics, i salute you.

but these retards who never heard of iron man untill his 2008 movie and now think he's the ******* best even tho he had one good movie (which was the avengers)

avengers was ******* amazing and now these asshole think marvel **** on everybody cause of one good movie, when in retrospect most marvel movies are a pile of wank,

I love marvel, i love dc, but dc is the original of all comics, superman is the worlds first hero who inspired the great writers to make great heroes we have today, give dc the respect it deserves you ungrateful peace of **** , because if there was no dc to start this all off, there would be no marvel,
User avatar #181 to #12 - drldrl (06/25/2013) [-]
I never liked Superman. The concept is just meh. He can't be hurt except from an extremely rare rock from another planet light years away, which makes me find the fact that all these villains in his comics have it hard to believe.
#182 to #12 - Rascal (06/25/2013) [-]
True

Not really sure if that merits pride. They haven't done anything.

The first movie was awesome, though the other two didn't quite stack up

they're not all as awesome as avengers, but they're usually at least worth watching

Superman was not the first hero. From Washington to Hercules to who knows what else, there have been heroes, real and fictional, since the beginning of humanity and probably even before then.

#198 to #12 - Rascal (06/25/2013) [-]
I think it's kind of stupid to hate casual fans because everyone has to start somewhere. Most people start with the movies because they're a lot easier to get into than 40+ years worth of continuity and rewrites.

Instead of standing on your high horse and sneering at the plebs, why not lend them a few issues and help convert them?

User avatar #110 to #12 - spyrothehedgehog (06/25/2013) [-]
Hey, I have a question

I started getting into the whole superhero thing a couple of years ago.
BUT, I didn't really read the comics. I just thought the characters were really cool and interesting. So, if I saw or heard about a character that I liked, I would Google him/her, and read all about them, while never actually reading a comic. I ended up really liking wolverine, deadpool, and nightcrawler because of their backstories, and I thought batman and spiderman, along with all their enemies (deathstroke, venom, etc.) were also really cool, but I still never really read any of the comics.

So, basically, the point is, I don't call myself a "comic book nerd", because I've only read, like, 10-15 issues of any marvel/DC comic, but I was wondering If I'm "allowed to" call myself a marvel/DC fan. I don't really care much, and will probably keep calling myself that regardless of what you people say, because I know waaaaaay more about comic book stuff than most "comic book nerds" (emphasis on the quotes), but I was just wondering what the internet thinks of people like that.
#122 to #110 - Rascal (06/25/2013) [-]
the fact that you take time in learning about that characters history is worthy of my respect,

there is people who think every superhero ever created is made by marvel, one of my friends even said once (batman is marvels best hero) so i grown hatred towards people like that.

so yes you would be kind of a fan, i do suggest pick up a few graphic novels if you dont want to follow issues or collect issues weekly, you're missing out on some great storyline that hollywood doesnt show us

i bet you're one of those faggot who never took time to like him,

then i took the time to learn the character and what he stands for, and now i know why he's the world greatest hero.

Superman is a better Hero than Ironman, but in the movies at least Ironman is a better character.
User avatar #50 to #45 - TrollyTheTroll (06/24/2013) [-]
why would you praise iron man characteristics for being an arrogant douche

in iron man 3 he risks peppers life by saying his address cause he thought he was all badass and **** ,

and blowing up all his suits, dont get me started on how bad the iron man movies are

where superman is actually standing up for people who took him in raised him as one of there, choosing to rebirth and save his biological race or protect the people who took in him and showed him how to be human. the choices he makes and the things he stands for is what a real hero is. where iron man is having house partys and eating dohnuts on top of the building "HERR HERR HERR IERN MERN IS AWESOME" incredibly overrated character, the fact is people dont like iron man they just like downey jr in the iron man suit, the truth is iron man isnt that much of a douchebag in the comics, but people praise downey jr for some reason.

GET AWAY YOU FILTHY CASUAL!"

How about instead of bitching about what form somebody enjoys the same fictional characters as you in, you just shut the **** up and enjoy the more in-depth stuff? Does their enjoying a film really hurt you so badly, or is your life just that depressingly devoid of any actual substance?

A lot of DC fans havent picked up a comic before either
You dont have to read a comic to be a fan, but if you're going to call yourself a fanboy or a nerd or a comic book fan then you sorta have to read comics
But Marvel does have more fans that dont read comics because of popularity and they have more movies.
Like, I like Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings, but more LOTR fans have read the book than more Harry Potter fans have read the book

No, Superman is not ridicules if you took time to learn his origins, he's story is amazing, which is why he is and always will be the face of superheroes. i hate people who just automatically assume "OMG superman is so overpowered" please tell me how much you love deadpool and the fact he cant die, superman is vulnerable he has weaknesses, but he always wins cause he will never rest because earth is his adoptive home and he will stop at nothing to protect the humans

I mainly only know Marvel through the movies so anytime I'm in a comic book discussion that's about Marvel I always ask &quot;Did this or that happen in the comics?&quot;    
   
Usually they're nice about it if you ask. I'm more of a DC guy but I do like most Marvel's  live action movies. ( Didn't care for Thor )

As a Marvel fan, I love DC too, I am pretty sick of all these "omg Marvel nerd" fans just because of the Avengers. I see girls at my school that wear shirts that say "Marvel Comics" but have never picked up a comic before because they are nerdy and they only like Marvel because of The Avengers.
And this makes angry DC fanboys think every Marvel fan is an idiot and that they are superior because they think their stuff is more deep and serious.

One of my friends is a fan of both Marvel and DC, more DC though. He gets Captain America, Ironman, The Amazing Spiderman, The Avengers, and I forget the last one. But he says the only one that's doing decent is Spiderman. It seems that Marvel has tried to keep up with DC's New 52 with Marvel Now! and they've been not doing a good job.

I think DC is 10x better not just in movies they make better video games better animated movies and their live action movies are pretty damn good
Watchme, Man of steel ,Dark Knight trilogy ,Green lantern (wasnt that bad) ,R.E.D ,V for vendetta ,Constantine ,arkham video games ,injustice ,dc universe online

and the dark knight returns part 1 and 2 and under the red hood are better than any live action superhero movie ever

To be fair, the Avengers were actually trying to contain the destruction of the invasion. The total damage of the war with Loki resulted in approximately $160 billion. Plus, Loki was captured alive.

Superman, on the other hand, did not make any attempt to contain the city's destruction, resulted in $2 trillion in damages, about 129,000 dead, 250,000 missing, over 1 million injured, and deliberately killed General Zod. Even Mark Waid nearly stormed out of the theater after that gem.

So on one hand, there's the Avengers saying, "Yeah! We just saved a city and minimized damages incurred! Let's have Shawarma!" While Superman is all "Hey, I just saved the city, but caused as much damage as the nuking of Nagasaki, only with more deaths, way more injuries, and a hell if a lot more monetary damages. Kiss me!"

Superman did cause a large amount of damage in his fights, yes, but not nearly as much as the fight against the Chitauri did. The majority of the damage was done be the world engine.

2 He killed Zod to prevent him from killing several innocent people, and then cried about it.

I don't get why people compare the invasions from the avengers to the man of steel. I highly doubt the avengers would have been able to defeat the kryptonians. If they did somehow manage to defeat them(most likely with thor and hulk) I imagine the losses and damage would be much more.

I also think now is a good time to do a little rant/review on Man of Steel
I feel like Im the only one that think Man of Steel is incredibly overrated
Everyone is loving it because they think it is underrated because of the critics when actually it's getting so much love as being one of the best superhero movies
They think it is deep, because there is emotion and jesus metaphors, but it just looks deep because there is no lightheartedness in it. They try to be deep, but remember, this is a Snyder film. There are tons of logic holes in the film too. The main reason why DC fans are loving this is because it is the first Superman film with action, which is nice, but I want more. I want an interesting exciting story. They should of done something with the Phantom Zone a bit more like in the comics. So it isnt that great of a film, I liked it, but it's no Dark Knight

I didnt hate it like critics
I didnt think it wasnt great like some movie reviewers
I didnt love it like DC fanboys
I more liked it like Youtube reviewers, thought it was great, but could of been way better, had tons of potential

I find the story okay, maybe a little fast paced, but still good.
I heard theres a 5 hours worth of deleted clips, just so it could fit the 2:30 time limit.
I wouldnt compare Superman with Jesus though, that seems to be way off
User avatar #78 to #26 - cheatman (06/24/2013) [-]
I thought the movie was awesome. Not the BEST but still awesome compared to most of the **** that comes out at cinemas today.

There were holes in it, and some stuff that could've been done better, but overall, the action and in depth background for superman was enough to overcome it.
#52 to #26 - crimsonsapphire (06/24/2013) [-]
An example would be great. I've seen many people claim that there was something wrong with the movie, but not listing one example. So, list one of the logic holes or gtfo!
#214 to #52 - jinapayne (06/25/2013) [-]
Well one development issue was Kal-El killing Zod, I had no problem with that because this is a different version of Superman, but it's not like anything was leading up to it. They never established some "You can't kill people it's against your morals" it just came out of nowhere
Also the tornado scene, I mean is Johnathan Kent so worried about people learning about his powers that he will die? It seemed like that scene was done just for excitement and to add an emotional scene of his father dying. John Kent was should of been trying to teach Kal that he needs to be responsible with his powers, not let kids die. The whole meaning they should of been taught by Mr Kent was that Kal has great powers and he could use them for good. Also, about that tornado scene, they should of made him die of cancer or some disease, to show Superman's TRUE weakness, that he can't save everybody, and that wasnt even elaborated well in the destruction after math. During the tornado, Kal COULD of saved his dad. It seemed like they were missing the point. Look up Nostalgia Critic's review with his brother on this movie and even Red LEtter Media's review. Both make good arguments even though I dont fully agree with them

They are boh amazing movies,

so sick of marvel fan boys comparing ****

User avatar #30 to #27 - TrollyTheTroll (06/24/2013) [-]
My favourite comic publisher is Darkhorse and the only movie i have to look forward to them lately is RIPD

but even i am sick of marvel wannabe fanboys.

i actually thought man of steel was better than the avengers,

but still dark knight is my fav hero movie. with the success DC is getting in the box office now, i just hope dc dont gain wannabe fans like marvel

not all people like marvel just cause they make lots of movies (even though most are crap)

deal with it.
#33 to #30 - jinapayne (06/24/2013) [-]
Seems like most people hate Marvel because they are popular and have those wannabes
And most people like Marvel because they are popular and have all these movies
I read comics of both and Dark Horse sometimes, I also like Image and IDW, but superhero wise.
But yes, I hate Marvel wannabe fans and it makes me ashamed to be a fan of Marvel like how i am to be ashamed to be a fan of Doctor Who
The only wannabe nerds DC has are the wannabe Batman fans
User avatar #40 to #33 - TrollyTheTroll (06/24/2013) [-]
forgive me if i sound douché
but this is my second time typing this

I would call marvel (well known) rather than popular, you'd be popular too if you released 3-4 movies every year. and with multiple project on going at once you're bound to make some **** up movies were dc have multiple oscars from batman, superman and the dark knight to marvel number of oscars - 0

look at the dark knight trilogy each movie was 3-4 years apart, dc take time in their project in trying to please their fans, they **** over their fans many years ago with batman and robin, catwoman and superman returns, and trying to put it right,

where marvel dont give a **** , they make any piece of **** and know marvel fanboys will eat that **** up. like iron man 3, wtf was that? anyone in their right mind wouldve been like "im not changing the mandarin, the fans will hate that" not no, i promised myself when leaving the cinema that day to never pay for an iron man movie again.

but now dc look to be heading out to rule the movie world with upcoming justice league plans and justice league dark along with the solo movies for justice league.
which is why i love marvel for making the avengers, their success showed warner bros that superhero movies is the most grossed projects ever.

dc also pay attention to make great video games and great animated movie, its safe to say they are ahead in them races too.

i know i know deadpool game....... but cmon arkham origins?
#43 to #40 - jinapayne (06/24/2013) [-]
I did hear DC will try to do Justice League after Man of Steel 2 though
If that is true, that will be a huge mistake. Doesnt matter about the time in between
Marvel managed to develop the characters or introduce them in their own movie, if DC doesnt do that Justice League will suck, but DC fans may eat it up just as much as Marvel fans do to Marvel movie. And most Marvel fans hated, IM3, except for me even though I was disappointed\
Marvel and DC are pretty much the same just that one has more wannabe nerds and one has more fantards
And the reason why TDK trilogy was spanned out longer than the Marvel CU and was half as many movies was because it was by one director, while each marvel movie was usually a different director and sometimes a different studio
User avatar #47 to #43 - TrollyTheTroll (06/24/2013) [-]
actually dc are doing the solo movies after JL movie, its like in the animated series how they all met in movie,

man of steel 2 will cameo batman or wonder woman,

it is revealed that during man of steel, batman is just bruce atm, aquaman is in atlantis who never showed himself, green lantern is in space, etc etc if you read the new 52 justice league Green lantern comes back to earth and meets batman and is shocked the fact the world is fun of other heroes.

marvel made 5 separate movies to introduce the characters, but still took an hour out of the avengers movie to introduce them again, i could honestly not watch the 5 movies and then watch the avengers by itself and i would get the movie, i wouldnt be lost, the dialogue wasn't that great to begin with, we wait 5 five movies for avengers, we knew what was the avengers gonna be about ( ******* **** up) and thats what we wanted but we didnt get that till like the last 40 minutes,

#212 to #47 - jinapayne (06/25/2013) [-]
I dont like how they are doing solo movies after JLA movie, seems like they are doing it just to change it up and not be like Marvel, but that formula actually worked
#211 to #47 - jinapayne (06/25/2013) [-]
well it wasnt introducing the characters seperately it was introducing the characters and how the worked together in a team, for a Marvel movie it was pretty good character development.
User avatar #88 to #47 - darknesincontrol (06/24/2013) [-]

not seeing a movie cause of colour?

most retarded thing ive ever heard.

it's the best hero movie you'll ever see,

avengers is overrated
User avatar #169 to #166 - Sethorein ONLINE (06/25/2013) [-]
"best hero movie you'll ever see" says the unbiased anon

not seeing a movie because of the colour? Ya, if they put obnoxious filters that make my head hurt and my stomach ache, I consider that a valid reason not to see another reboot of the same damn hero for the dozenth time.

This is cinema, not instagram. I don't care what studies they've found to show that making everything blue and orange will biologically entice us... it sucks the life out of the movie.

Just look at the two pictures here. The avengers are vibrant, colourful, interesting. Superman? Washed out, pale, almost sickly looking. Colours do a lot for presentation.

People liked the Shwarma bit because it was a joke, and was genuinely funny.   
People (justifiably) despise the Man of Steel kiss because it was    
A). A completely forced conclusion to an unrealistic and boring romance subplot   
and    
B). The line that followed that 			********		 kiss was so goddamn 			*******		 terrible it gave me hives.

**** sake not every superhero movie has to have humour in it just cause marvel like to put humour in their movies,

man of steel is a movie about standing up for people you love and doing what is right,

want comedy in a superhero movie? watch batman and robin, that movie is one big joke from start to finish
User avatar #129 to #126 - TehFunnyMan (06/25/2013) [-]
I never said every superhero movie had to have humor in it.
I personally appreciate it, but it's far from mandatory.

And I'm fully aware of what the movie was about. I don't even dislike the thing.
But that doesn't excuse the sloppy dialog and story in general.

Too be fair. The shawarma eating was after the battle. The kiss happened before the final battle with Zod
User avatar #83 to #80 - demandsgayversion (06/24/2013) [-]
In all appearances he was dead at that time. And he just stopped the world from being destroyed, he earned that kiss. Same with the Shwarma. You save the world, you can do whatever the **** you want afterwards. If humans honored the wookie life debt - as we all should - they would own their respective Earths.

that shwarma scene, Chris Evans (Captain America) had a beard because they filmed that scene a lot later and he never shaved, thats why he's resting his head on his hand, so he can hide the beard.

The avengers made sure they cleaned up the mess before the shawarma

Iron Man :" I know this great place that sells shawarma"
another guy forgot who "We need to clean up all the mess that happened (Or something like that)"
Iron Man:" But after that, shawarma"
User avatar #55 to #5 - TrollyTheTroll (06/24/2013) [-]
Actually the avengers didnt clean up after themselves

the actual quote is
"you guys ever try shawarma, i know a shawarma joint two blocks from here"
Thor: "We're not done yet" (referring to going to capture loki who is in stark tower trying to catch his breath from the bashing hulk gave him.

so yeah wanna get your fact straight there pal

Who knows, maybe they did clean up after themselves, what you offered is purely circumstantial evidence.

actually during the news report you see people, the citizens, cleaning the streets, and a news reporter complaining about the destruction they did to the city, quote: "they have to be reasonable for the destruction of the city, where are they now?" so no they didnt clean up after themselves
