Go to any comment section or forum on the internet and you are bound to find people taking part in the supposed ‘War’ between Marvel and DC. Whilst most of it is friendly banter, some can turn truly nasty, as was the case with the recent news regarding Zack Snyders departure from Justice League which you can read more of here.
Many people assume that this belief is also shared by the actors and actresses who appear in the respective franchises, but beside the odd comment from Anthony Mackie or Jason Momoa, there doesn’t appear to be much bad blood between them. In fact, many members of the Marvel community have recently taken to social media to congratulate DC on the success of their latest release, Wonder Woman.
The much deserved praise was heaped onto the film by members of the Marvel family from both sides of the camera. They singled out not only the film, but the direction from Patty Jenkins and the performance from star Gal Gadot.
Captain America star, Chris Evans was quick to offer his congratulations on the film’s Box Office:
