DC Comics launched its new DC Extended Universe at Comic-Con.

Marvel Studios has built up its brand by creating an interconnected cinematic universe in which every film contributes to a larger whole. From similar looks to recurring stylistic signatures to post-credit sequences to tease the next installment in the series, Marvel has established itself as the superhero box office juggernaut.


However, despite the familiar elements common to each of the Marvel Studios films (right down to the Alfred Hitchcock-style Stan Lee cameos), each movie stands on its own as an independent tale that is true to its central character. Jon Favreau

    Completely agree with this. DC has a lot of potential in terms of substance and story, plus they have a 1000 times better villains than Marvel.

    I think me personally after seeing the most recent avengers movie, I am getting tired of the marvel formula, it’s started to lack originality. Which is another reason I think Batman vs SUperman looks good. It seems to dive right in, no more origin stories, but has that same dark tone to appeal to a older audience.
