Comic Legend Mark Millar on the MEU vs. the DCEU: "The [DC] characters aren't cinematic."



Mark Millar, who has written for both Marvel (Civil War, Old Man Logan, etc.) and DC (Red Son, Superman Adventures, etc.) was asked by Yahoo recently on his take as to why DC hasn't been able to match Marvel's success.

"I think it’s really simple; the characters aren't cinematic. And I say [that] as a massive DC fan who much prefers their characters to Marvel's. Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman are some of my favorites but I think these characters, with the exception of Batman, they aren't based around their secret identity. They are based around their super power. Whereas the Marvel characters tend to be based around the personality of Matt Murdock or Peter Parker or the individual X-Men, it’s all about the character."

I can see what he's saying, especially in regards to Superman and how he only really worked during a certain era, but to blame the characters for the DCEU flop.... lmao


do you continue to debate the same things over and over again despite the answer being clear as day, ontd?
