TV = DCU

I rather like the X-men universe (read comics as a kid), and the Flash (same).

Its hard to pick between them.

Same, I'll even go further.

 

Comic books: DC

Animated films: DC

Animated tv series: DC

The only thing they need to do is get their crap together on their DCEU films, and for me it'd be a clean sweep

Wow I have just realized myself that they are truly superior to Marvel in those categories. But they suck big time when it comes to movie lol.



One thing that people also forget is that the MCU has more good movies, it also has more bad movies. But nothing as bad as Suicide Squad.



Unpopular opinion, but I prefer the X-Men cinematic series over both.

Between the two though...obviously Marvel.

Lol It's not even a contest at this point. I haven't seen Wonder Woman but it would have to be Dark Knight levels of good to make up for Suicide Squad. Meanwhile MCU films have ranged from decent to great, and Ive at least enjoyed every one I've seen.

Which is ironically what people have said about it.  

Have they really? I guess I'll find out when it eventually releases on bluray. I'm still having trouble wrapping my head around the idea that it might be good at all. BvS and Suicide Squad totally destroyed my faith in the dcu.

personally, MCU has better movies but i prefer the take of superheroes in the DCEU. it was more dark with a sense of questioning (suicide squad aside because that movie was a huge mistakes) that i dont find in the MCU.



They both suck.

But Logan was really good ... 



MCU is more balanced and consistent, but I like the heros of DCU more overall. I am going to play devil's advocate here and say DCU just seems more interesting to me.

MCU hands down.

But to be fair, if it was asked when the MCU was at the same stage of its continuity as the DCEU (ie post Cap 1, pre Avengers) is now then it would be much harder to choose. Back then the MCU had only had 1 good movie as well.

I have to ask, was Suicide Squad reqlly that bad, or just really disappointing? 

*Thinks back* yeah, it was that bad. Although I really do want to see more of Harley Quinn. I have this image of a Teen Titans movie, with Red Hood as the villian with a plot similar tomthe Under the Red Hood animated film, except instead of the Pengiun, RH uses Harley to draw the joker out. Its end with RH killing Harley, enraging the Joker who escapes whilst TT subdue RH, leading to an explsive face-off with Batman in a subsequent film.

A pipe dream, but still one I'm clinging in to.
