If you choose between the Marvel Cinematic Universe (top) and the DC Extended Universe (bottom), then most likely you have been at war. Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige is calling all fans to have a truce!
WFG is considered Switzerland, because let’s face it…we’re talking our childhood comic heroes brought to life regardless of whether they are Marvel or DC and Feige took to Crave for fans to cool it:
“I think it’s ridiculous. I think movies are awesome and people should go out and support awesome movies, and I go support those movies and I thought Wonder Woman was awesome…I can’t wait to see what Geoff Johns and Joss [Whedon] and the gang has done with Justice League. I guess people like rivalries, I guess? I don’t know. But I’m seeing Geoff Johns in a couple weeks for dinner. We went to this [Richard] Donner event together. Dick’s Superman is still the best archetype of superhero films. So yeah, just go see cool movies. What are you fighting about?”
While it’s true that everyone has different opinions, as a fan of these films, WFG agrees with Feige on the statement. Currently, the MCU has Thor: Ragnarok in theaters and next week, the DCEU will finally release the long-awaited team-up Justice League.
All comic books fans rejoice…do yourself a favor and don’t choose one over the other…go see both!
