Do Marvel superhero movies get treated more positively than DC superhero movies? I would say so!

Each time DC/Warner Bros. releases a new superhero film, the film gets so much negative criticism but Marvel superhero films gets received more positively. Why is this you may ask?

I remember when DC released the Green Lantern movie with Ryan Reynolds, that film got bashed like crazy. Then when “Man of Steel” finally came out that film got mixed reviews… then “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” came and that film got bashed like crazy.

Each time Marvel releases a new film whether it will be a “Thor” movie, a “Captain America” movie, “Doctor Strange” or another “Avengers” film… those films are loved by everyone.

It has nothing to do with the films itself. It has nothing to do with the directors, the script, etc. I think it’s because that Marve/Disney is at war with DC. That’s pretty much it really. It’s all competition with each other. One company wants to be better than the other. Hollywood doing all they can to ram Marvel down our throats. Marvel is trying all they can to get DC to lose their respect by movie lovers.

I just saw the new trailer for “Wonder Woman” by DC and it looks great to me:

How much do you want to bet that “Doctor Strange” is gonna get more received positively than “Wonder Woman”? Even though “Wonder Woman” would probably end up being a good film, it’s still gonna get bashed on because it’s DC.

I also have a bad feeling that Ben Affleck’s solo Batman movie will get trashed on too and I think the same will happen to the “Justice League” movie.

If DC wants to get more respect again then they need to step their game up. Like make better movies, they also need to market themselves better too. I think both companies make great films so I’m not gonna say which side makes better films.

The problem is DC don’t make that much superhero films when they should.  It’s a shame that DC don’t get much respect anymore when they should. They are the ones who brought us Batman and Superman. They finally teamed up Batman and Superman in a film like we all wanted so they should be respected.

I try not to give films negative criticism ’cause it’s something I try not to do. Negative opinions is just a waste of time when it comes to entertainment. I try to treat everything positively. Yeah, there are some movies I don’t like but I like most movies I see. If there’s a film I see I don’t care for then I’ll do my best to keep the opinion to myself. People can be very negative and opinionated when it comes to movies & music and I try not to be like that.

James Wan to direct “Aquaman” movie for DC/Warner Bros…

James Wan is mostly famous as a horror film director but look like he’s finally getting tired of horror films and wants to do different genres. He has directed a few action movies in his career with action films such as “Death Sentence” starring Kevin Bacon and he just directed “Fast & Furious 7”. Now he’s set to direct another action film which is gonna be the “Aquaman” which will star Jason Momoa in the leading role.

You can expect the “Aquaman” live-action movie to be full of water all over so there’s gonna be a lot of underwater scenes and above water scenes. That’s because I believe that Aquaman can only survive in water, I think he can survive outside of water but not for long. I don’t know much about Aquaman but I’m just doing a little googling on the character. He does have super strength and he can control all sea life meaning that he can control all sea animals like fish, sharks, whales, etc.

So I think this is gonna be an interesting movie and looking forward to seeing how James is gonna pull it off. Expect the movie to be full of CGI, though.

“Gotham” premiere review on FOX…

So last night I finally gotten around to watching the “Gotham” premiere on FOX. First things first, I would like to say that I was pretty blown away with the show. WOW!!!! The show was freakin’ great and I was pretty impressed with it’s debut episode. The show was actually pretty well written and well-acted by everyone in the cast and that includes Jada Pinkett Smith (Will Smith’s wife). I was pretty impressed with Jada Pinkett’s role and I used to never be a fan of her acting until now. I thought she did a great job. She played a cool villain that you love to hate. She played the evil “bitch” role well. Plus, Jada Pinkett was smoking hot and sexy in her costume.

Yeah, I did catch all of Batman’s super villains. I recognized Penguin, The Riddler, the Joker, Catwoman and Poison Ivy easily.

I know the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents have been shown many times in all of the Batman big screen movies and animated films but finally we’re gonna get a true back story of Bruce’s childhood which is what this show is about. I’m assuming that this show is leading up to Bruce Wayne growing up and it will show how he became the Batman. When will we a full grown Bruce Wayne in the Batman suit? Not for a long while I would think. If the show is successful and I think it will be, it’ll last for 7-10 seasons or more. This show could be bigger than “Smallville”.

I’m very intrigued with the idea of “Gotham” ’cause for once we get a historical look on the Batman story of how he became Batman and how all the super villains came out to be. In the upcoming show, I hope “Gotham” will show us more super villains of how they were in the beginning like Harley Quinn, Killer Croc, Bane, Mr. Freeze, Ra’s Al Ghul, Scarecrow, Deadshot, etc. I’m sure the show will have them all.

Anyway, this show is not just about Bruce Wayne and how he became Batman, it’s really an introduction of all the super villains. That’s the whole point of it, I believe.

Consider me a fan of the show and I’ll continue to watch every Monday. I’m a huge Batman fan. Always have been ever since I was a child.

So that means I’m currently watching two NEW TV shows right now: “Gotham” and “Dr. Who” w/ Peter Capaldi. “Dr. Who” w/ Capaldi and Jenna Coleman is really good too and I will talk more about that show in another post.
