March 25 will see the Bat go toe to toe with the man of steel for the first time in live action. This could be the biggest moment in comic book or film history! Or not. Who knows, but we all know that it is going to be beyond exciting for comic book fans. I know I'm going to be in the front of that line.
Now when this movie was first announced a lot of fans, myself included felt that DC comics was trying to hard to be the Avengers. Only dark. As time went on and we started to see the trailers we started to have faith that maybe they were just going their own way. That it will be as good, well almost as good, after all Joss Whedon is writing or directing this one.
All that changed when DC went on the offensive and insulted not just Marvel but fans. They said that Marvel movies were dumbed down and that they were scared that the audience wouldn't understand their film. Uh what? How complicated are your movies that we wouldn't understand them? If the point of that was to say hey we are better I think they forgot that most of their fans over lap with Marvel fans. They just spit in the face of a lot of people who are the same people they need to get into theaters.
This isn't the first attack on Marvel. The actor playing Aquaman said f#*k Marvel and Joker and Harley Quinn are wearing shirts that say the same. Instead of promoting what is arguably the most anticipated movie of all time all they are doing is bad mouthing the people who made this possible for them. Let's not forget that it was a DC film, a batman film that killed comic book movies before a Marvel Film, Blade, brought them back and Iron Man that changed the game forever.
Batman V Superman is going to be a blockbuster, it is going to sell a lot of tickets but how will it be remembered? It has to now top every Marvel movie in order to be a success. Not only Batman V Superman but suicide squad and all the DC movies that come out after have to beat the Marvel films as well. That is the bar they set themselves. March 25th we will see what DC brings to the table and two months later we will see how Marvel handles the same film, only with characters that we have grown with.
