Marvel vs DC movies side-by-side. FIGHT!

marvelvsdc

Now that Marvel has released their future Cinematic Universe plans, I thought it’d be cool to see which movies will go head-to-head on the silver screen. Just to have a little fun with it, I took to predicting which movies will take the biggest box office cut. If you want to know more about the DC movie line-up uninterrupted, you can check out this blog post.

First up…

May 6, 2016: Captain America: Civil War
Nov. 4, 2016: Doctor Strange
Vs.
Aug. 5, 2016: Suicide Squad

 

Civil War puts the Avengers against each other (awesome!) and we get a Doctor Strange movie (meh…). I’m going say that Suicide Squad will take the box office here just because it’s different. A movie set around the bad guys really switches things up. I mean, who really can’t wait to see Harley Quinn finally hit the silver screen?!

 

May 5, 2017: Guardians of the Galaxy 2
July 28, 2017: Thor: Ragnarok
Nov. 3, 2017: Black Panther
Vs.
June 23, 2017: Wonder Woman
Nov. 17, 2017: Justice League Part One

 

Ah, 2017 the year of ‘firsts’. Gal Gadot stars in Wonder Woman, the first woman led superhero movie and Chadwick Boseman is the first non-white superhero in Black Panther. Both are movies to keep your eye on, but it’s the first part of Justice League that will score higher at the box office with Guardians of the Galaxy 2 coming in a close second. Too many Batman fans out there salivating at the thought of him finally teaming up with other DC heroes for it to miss the top spot.

 

May 4, 2018: Avengers: Infinity War – Part I
July 6, 2018: Captain Marvel
Nov. 2, 2018: Inhumans
Vs.
March 23, 2018: The Flash
July 27, 2018: Aquaman

 

DC fumbles here. Aquaman is a running joke and we have The Flash on The CW. DC will have to push a lot of marketing at us to pay the price to see them at the movie theater.  It will be the first part to Avengers: Infinity War that takes the box office cash with Captain Marvel coming really close. A lot of people asking for a Black Widow movie — which won’t happen — but Captain Marvel will take that place very easily. There is a lot of hype around the first female lead for a Marvel movie that it may give the studio’s third superhero team-up movie a run for its money.

 

May 3, 2019: Avengers: Infinity War – Part II
Vs.
April 5, 2019: Shazam
June 14, 2019: Justice League Part Two

 

Oh here we go! The ULTIMATE match-up! Team-up movie versus team-up movie. Both are the conclusion parts. Doesn’t get any better than this. It’s a toss-up in my books. We know more about the Infinity War by reading the comics, but not much has been said about what’s going to happen in the Justice League movies. I’m going with Justice League Part Two for the sake of being different and giving DC some much needed love.

DC takes 2020 with Cyborg and the Green Lantern reboot while Marvel has nothing… yet. We’ll have to hold off on judgment for that year for now.

What do you think about the match-ups? Will Marvel continue their cinematic domination or will DC play spoiler and take home the cash?

Then and Now Superheroes and Supervillains

then-and-now-superheroes-fi

After watching the most recent episode of Gotham and then seeing the promo for tonight’s The Flash, it dawned on me how superheroes and supervillains have changed over the years. It’s a mix between advanced CGI and better costume design, but it’s hard to imagine taking Lou Ferrigno as The Hulk seriously after seeing Mark Ruffalo’s […]

Here is your DC Cinematic Universe lineup

justiceleage-thatshortguy

Oh this is so exciting! Recently Warner Bros. did a big shareholder talk and dropped some superhero news on us. We already know about Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice (release date of March 25, 2016) where we will see Ben Affleck’s veteran Batman take on Superman and will probably lead into the beginning of the Justice League — it […]

An honest review of the series premier of The Flash

TheFlashEpisodeOne

Warning: This blog post contains spoilers and will make much more sense if you’ve already watched the series premier of The Flash. I think I know what DC and CW are doing. Those ingenious bastards. Marvel has their Cinematic Universe, where they’ve beautifully redefined story telling through multiple movies with a dash of side story on […]
