Marvel demonstrates its enormous superiority, while DC spends more than an hour to show two videos
Anyone who followed San Diego Comic-Con 2022 will know what I mean by the title of this article: DC came first , with two Shazam! The Fury of the Gods and Black Adam . And hours later, already at dawn in Spain, Marvel Studios disembarks with ambitious plans to continue producing content until 2025 (at least). A huge difference that is nothing more than the chronicle of a death foretold: Warner Bros. does not know what to do with DC , and has no problem highlighting this problem.
Why was DC so unambitious at San Diego Comic-Con 2022?
When you go to a fair as important as San Diego Comic-Con 2022 , the essential thing is that you bring as many projects as possible to please your fans. However, this event is for us, those of us who follow the saga day after day and want more movies and more series .
Instead, DC arrives and thinks they can make us happy with a trailer for Shazam! The Fury of the Gods (yes, very nice and funny) and a new trailer for Black Adam , a film for which we already had more than one teaser . Of course, social networks were filled with jokes and ridicule for a line-up that forgot Superman and Henry Cavill (the rumor that sounded the most), The Flash ( perhaps because of the Ezra Miller scandal ) and Aquaman and The LostKingdom .
The venture wasn’t ambitious at all, and this is a monumental mistake for a franchise in critical condition: Birds of Prey , Wonder Woman 1984 , and The Suicide Squad weren’t hits. And Black Adam I don’t know if he has the ability to repeat the triumph of Aquaman or Wonder Woman as it is in the courtyard.
Marvel, DC Killer
Indeed, the 11 announcements made by Marvel at San Diego Comic-Con are more than enough reason to point to Marvel Studios as the true killer of DC . Not only has Phase 5 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe been revealed ; The first dates of the sixth stage, the name of the two new Avengers movies and the official title of Captain America 4 have also been given . On the other hand, it has been confirmed that Disney and Marvel are working on Daredevil, Thunderbolts and Fantastic Four , and watch out, because another 8 announcements have been saved for D23 .
I think there is no color between the very satisfying experience that Marvel Studios gave us at San Diego Comic-Con 2022 , and the bitter taste in our mouths that DC produced for us hours before with two announcements (and nothing new).
