Damn… looks like the final battle in the DC vs. Marvel war will be waged on the big screen… and Marvel is kicking some serious DC ass. Sure Batman Begins gets props for saving a franchise that became a joke (sidebar- Batman is my favorite super hero of all time) but even Begins wasn’t better than Spider Man 2 which in my opinion ranks up there for its story line and CGI as one of the greatest comic book movies of all time.
And with Ghostrider, The HULK, Spiderman 3, X-MEN 3, Daredevil & The Fantistic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer — Marvel has definitely had more flops than DC (Superman) … but damn what a super flop that was.
See in the near future things only look like they’re gonna get better for Marvel. In 2008 Marvel gained complete control over the making and release of their films… and boy has it made a difference. Iron Man and Incredible Hulk were DOPE. From the character development to the CGI to the inside stuff that the comic geeks flip over (spolier alert – Mr Blue becomes The Leader). Both Iron Man and Incredible Hulk did what major studios probably couldn’t – they paid great attention to the story line and character development WITHOUT sacrificing the effects or fight scenes and GOT IT RIGHT.
