• MOVIE MUSINGS™ - An Analogy for the Superhero Movie Genre -
- And the bitter-but-silly debate between the faithful Marvel fans and loyal DC fans rages on. I love BOTH superhero factories, and I rejoice at this bountiful era of super cinematic splendor. So, I AM NOT TAKING SIDES here!
But I would sum it all up with this playful analogy...
For one thing, the Marvel superhero movies broke down a whole new wall for the genre. Where DC's films knocked out a few bricks here and there over the decades, mainly using their Superman and Batman hammers, Marvel contributed by loaning out their Blade chisel, X-Men jackhammer, and Spider-Man wrecking ball.
The next wall was an even tougher one, reinforced with double-layered brick, and iron support struts. But Marvel used their lesser-known Iron Man battering ram to smash through that first layer. Then they broke out Thor's hammer, and their Captain America shield-drill, doing all the heavy lifting and the hard work while DC simply relied on their Batarang sledge.
Finally, Marvel united their tools to form some MCU demolition explosives, Avengers Plastique, and they blasted that last wall to bits! BOOM!!! The last wall was breached, and the superhero movie genre was now ready for big and small screen domination. Marvel did that. They came up with the right strategy, and they had the guts to do it. Plain and simple.
AFTER the fact, DC at last decided to mold their primary charges into Superman/Batman C4, and detonate their DCEU blaster pack. But because the last wall had already been blown, their DCEU blast did far less damage than it woulda-coulda-SHOULD have done.
In the end, the Superman/Batman C4 was expected to be powerful enough not only to obliterate the rest of the shattered wall, but to also put a huge crater in the whole Hollywood construction site. After all, that was the biggest super-combo of them ALL! EVERYBODY knew about the power of S/B C4!!! Come on, son!
It's far more impressive how Marvel snatched the "DC" from DC in their Demolition & Construction, doing a much more effective job of it by using less powerful, less popular tools, and less conventional methods in order to win the primary building contract franchise! Haha!
