Though many fans perpetuate the DC vs Marvel myth, in reality the companies are not in direct competition or haven’t been since the comic book only days. Marvel and DC can both be successful in movies without directly impacting on the other. However it’s fair to say that as of now Marvel have been making more money and getting greater critical acclaim than DC has on the movie front.

It’s perhaps then hardly surprising that Marvel head honcho Kevin Feige is asked about the DCEU from time to time, and in a recent interview with Heroic Hollywood, Feige was asked what the DC Film Universe must do to succeed and he gave a somewhat positive if very diplomatic answer:

“I don’t know, I’m not one to bestow advice onto others. I think you can look at what they did with Wonder Woman and they’ve figured that out. I’ve got great confidence in Geoff Johns over there and now Joss Whedon helping them out, that just makes me excited as a fan to see what’s next.”

Certainly all eyes will be on Justice League as we move towards it’s November 17 release date, to see if the DCEU can launch on from the success of Wonder Woman. As fans of comic book movies, I am sure we all want to see DC become just as successful as Marvel in the movie business.

What do you think of Kevin Feige’s comments; do you think that DC is finally on the right track again after a troubled start? Let us know in the comments below.

    That’s the type of response you get when you’re in first, you’ve seen the new Justice League trailer, and have no worries of serious competition.

    In some ways, those ways all having to do with the creative talent involved as opposed to the the idiotic executive office (my assessment….pretty certain that’s not the wording on the doors of their suite), I think he is right. Joss Whedon is a well-established talent in the industry and only benefits the DCEU. Geoff Johns seems like a man with a very expansive vision and certainly has the ability to see his vision to fruition, judging by the success with major events he’s had in DC Comics. The real question is: how good will be be at developing his vision within a studio framework as opposed to within a comics environment, where he could actually handle most of the duties himself. Different world, but if WW is any indicator, optimism is well-deserved.

    I’d be excited not to have to clean up that DCEU, too

    When you have to change completely the tone of Thor’s character and then market the movie as a copy of GOTG with the visuals and the “humor”… That sure looks like somebody’s worried…

    I would also think that a billion dollar JL movie would be some competition…
