Since the early days of Comic Books, there has always been comparisons and now that seems to have carried over into the world of comic book movies, specifically between Marvel and DC. Now Man of Steel director Zack Snyder has spoken out about these comparisons.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Snyder made a valid point on how these comparisons are unimportant to much of the general audience revealing:
‘You have these two giant comic book powers, and it would make sense that they would in some ways be compared to each other. It’s like comparing Downton Abbey and Mr. Selfridge. Like Star Wars and Star Trek. Those are things that you could compare, but no one ever does. Those [DC versus Marvel] conversations are fun for the Internet. But in truth, it represents such a small group of people who are actually versed in the difference between DC and Marvel. The average moviegoer doesn’t know. Like my dad would be, “Is Spider-Man ever going to be in any of your films?”‘
This definitely a good point he makes with most of the comparisons and rivalries between the studios being brought about by overzealous fans, whilst the general movie going public are more concerned with being entertained. Speaking as a fan of both companies, I think it’s a great time to be around with plenty for everyone.
