Cinematic Universes [ COMIC ]

When Iron Man came out, back in 2008, we weren’t told that it was part of some greater cinematic universe. Hell, the average person hadn’t even heard of Tony Stark or Iron Man before this movie came out. Afterwards, we slowly began to see that these Marvel comic book movies were somehow all connected and would inevitably become part of something much, much bigger. DC, on the other hand, told us everything they were going to do before they had even sold us on their concept.

Also, the foundation for DC’s cinematic universe are two feature films that have been universally panned by critics. Man of Steel currently stands at 56% rotten on Rotten Tomatoes and Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice has an even worse score of 27% rotten, according to Rotten Tomatoes.

I am neither a Marvel nor a DC Comics fanboy and as such, I feel no requirement to praise nor defend either company’s efforts. That said, Zac Snyder should have never been picked to direct a Superman movie. Zac Snyder only knows dark and brooding. Superman is not dark and brooding. Batman is dark and brooding. But whatever…

Seriously, you want to see an awesome DC Comics’ universe? Just go rewatch the DC animated universe (DCAU). I honestly don’t see a better version ever being created. Especially now, living in a post New 52 world. Ugh…
