    the thing is...
    DC is fucking op.. it has gods and demigods.
    whereas, Marvel. has human people just transformed into heroes. i know it sounds so clichē. but thats the truth.. they're normal human beings (except thor and such) with normal human behaviours. tony (iron man) is rich and cocky. bruce banner (aka hulk) is too frail and weak and is scared to accept hulk. peter parker is just your everyday average nerd.. but the things they fight are god like beings and aliens.. and when they do
    its emotional. we see that even if they have powers they're so weak compared to the aliens.. we see the human side of them giving up hope and such..
    And now back to DC. in the comics.. yes they potray that well.. but in the movies superman looks at himself and thinks he's a god. barry allen is just another cocky demigod in the movies.. wonder man doesn't even care.. aquaman is a fucking drunk. cyborg is surrounded by gods so he don't care... THE DIRECTORS AND PEOPLE WHO MAKE THE MOVIE SEE'S THEIR POWERS AND THINK "hm.. this guy is a god basically he'd just act normal to an alien invasion" that isn't how it works..
    DC movie writers and so on and forth are just people who don't understand the concept of superman being the boyscout. the dream and hope of earth. or as batman the dark knight. to them these heroes are just too strong to even care.

    It can easily be argued that the new movies' Batman is more like an actual superhero. Y'know, someone who actually gets rid of the bad guys so they can't hurt people again instead of putting them through a revolving door.

    We do have a superhero whose motivations are solely based around his love interest. His name is Anakin Skywalker.

    Something about Superman and Wonder Woman just occurred to me. Humanity in every culture has always spoken and thought of "being human" as something that can be attributed to those not genetically human. Being human is, to humans, more than mere genetics.

    *Marvel Heroes:* the hero just happens to wear a costume but you don't really think of them that way and their superhero shenanigans are more of a backdrop to the real people than the end-all be-all of the superheroes. Most of them get annoyed when they fail to kill their villainous opponents specifically because they know the villain will go off to harm more people.
    *DC Heroes:* a superhero is only a superhero if they wear a costume and there is no person underneath worth noting. Also, refuses to kill even when they know absolutely it will get innocents killed or worse.

    It’s funny when he said that Wonder Woman will be the only good movies but right after justice league we got Shazam and aquoman

    This isn't a problem with DC's heroes, this is problem with WB's DC movies. Everyone I've talked to has understood that, even the people who don't read comic books. They know the characters are perennially popular for a reason, but that WB is doing them badly.
    What I don't understand is why WB keeps insisting on creating movies for the mainstream public that are not based on the current, mainstream canon for the characters. That's a massive part of their problem.

    Batman was originally just a detective (Detective Comics) who packed a 1911 colt and shot bad guys who tried to stop him. But the 1940s censorship laws forced Batman to be written as a "i dont kill people" guy. So when Dark Knight Returns came out, and batman was bteaking collar bones and saying "i cant kill you" but i dont have to save you" thats was an amzing return to form after several decades of bad batman renditions.

    Superman didn’t snap Zod’s neck because he had no alternative in that moment.
    Of course he could have redirected Zod’s eye beams or whatever.
    The point was that Zod was never going to stop killing humans. Superman felt he had no alternative but to kill Zod at some point (no time like the present).
    You can argue with that view, but I think that is what you need to argue against.

    DC are so focused on grim and dark realism that they have lost what makes the characters work. I hate how Batman has gone from hero that cares to a violent, bloodthirsty vigilante with no reason to care for the folk he fights to protect. Superman is supposed to be a man, who happens to have superpowers, raised on a small farm and he loves the people, but now he's a moody, walking boner. I'm done with the DCEU.

    I love the Kill Bill monologue about Superman specifically because it's so wrong. It fit perfectly because Bill himself had an incorrect world view. Bill viewed Superman the way someone like Lex Luthor views Superman.
    The irony goes one level further because he cites Peter Parker and Bruce Wayne right before that as individuals with an alter ego that they have without the mask, which is also wrong. Peter Parker doesn't just see himself as Peter Parker or Spider-Man. He views himself as both. Both faces are who he is deep down. Spider-Man doesn't stop being Peter Parker when he puts on the mask, and when he takes it off, Peter Parker doesn't stop being Spider-Man. Both are a combined reflection of the man, and one does not exist without the other, as we've seen many times over the years when Peter gives up Spider-Man or when someone else takes up the mantle.
    And then you have Batman, who is the one that actually fits Bill's dialogue. For decades one of the biggest facets of Batman has been that Bruce Wayne died in Crime Alley with his parents. The Bruce Wayne we see is the true mask, that the entire persona is an act. All that he is is Batman. That's how he views himself. Bruce Wayne is a convenient face he can wear to further his mission. Batman is who he is.

    Wow, not a single argument presented by this guy (Marvel fanboy) against DC films is worth listening to: "Batman is very evil" ""Superman does not kneel to say hi to the kid"" "Superman is not funny" ¿Really? Man of Steel is better than the 90% of Marvel Movies

    Okay, but you can't trash The Dark Night. Those writers knew what they were doing, and though it cuts close, I'd say it's up there with Avengers Endgame, though it's hard because Endgame was the epic finale to the 10 year Infinity Saga and it hit close to home with all Marvel fans like myself, but Dark Night was exactly the kind of Batman movie we deserve. That movie made me realize who Batman was, and why everyone in the Justice League, these god like figures, all considered him their superior. Anyone who hates DC strictly because the MCU is way better than the DCEU (which it is) doesn't even bother to watch these movies, because they don't want to except that they are both exceptional franchises, and I know because I was one of these people.

    Why don't people get that Zod wasn't aiming at the people? He was literally not, he was trying to fuck up superman, he wanted supes to kill him since he knew he wouldn't win so just wanted to put supes in a bad daylight. So in some way you're right he could've done different.

    To be honest, it does make WAY MORE SENSE that spiderman would shoot webs out of his body due to the bite of the radioactive spider [ since he got other spider related abilities as well ]. Compared to a high school science kid being able to invent webshooters to generate super strong long range sticky fibers with no access to high tech materials or facilities.
