Before you go on, please know that this was thrown together at the last-minute. I wanted to get in on this Comic Book thing – but it may look a little ugly. Don’t mind me, or the partial thoughts in the following.
I have to admit; I love me a good superhero movie. I’m a bit of a fake though. I’m a comic book geek – sans comic books. I don’t think that makes me any less of a fan though; which also means I’m allowed an opinion. The Matticus Kingdom has asked us to take sides in a tug-o-war contest between Marvel and DC.
Before I begin I want to say that I enjoy ALL comic book movies, no matter where the stories come from. Having said that I’m going to have to go with Marvel. Here are the pros…
X-Men – X2 – X-Men: The Last Stand – X-Men Origins: Wolverine – The Wolverine – All movies use the same actors
Spider-Man – Spider-Man 2 – Spider-Man 3 – All movies use the same actors
Fantastic Four – Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer – Both movies use the same actors
Iron Man – Iron Man 2 – The Avengers – Iron Man 3 – Captain America – Thor and Thor 2 – All movies use the same actors
Here are the cons…
Howard the Duck (Actually, this is a guilty pleasure of mine…but still a con.)
Daredevil (Never saw Elektra, but glad I haven’t yet)
The Punisher was alright. The sequel…not so much. (Still haven’t seen the Dolph Lundgren movie)
Ghost Rider, not so bad. Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance? Gag me.
Now, let’s take a look at the DC comic book movies.
Three different actors have portrayed Superman, and four different have portrayed Batman.
The following movies were made – and not watched as much as they would have liked…
Watchmen (I really like this movie though)
Green Lantern (Went to theaters to see this. So disappointed in the graphics used. This could’ve been a very great movie.)
Pros for DC…
Batman Begins – The Dark Knight – The Dark Knight Rises (I’m also a sucker for Michael Keaton as Batman)
Superman – Superman 2 – Superman 2: Richard Donner cut – Man of Steel
A History of Violence, Constantine, V for Vendetta, The Losers, Red and Red 2, The Spirit
The thing is, it’s hard for most of these movies to produce a sequel.
They both produce very good movies, but Marvel seems to be more stable to me. What do you think?
