    Let’s be honest, at this point a lot of people have already seen The Flash pilot … especially if they’re the type of people who go to Comic Con.

  • appolox

    Wow. DC is struggling to catch up with marvel in the film industry yet they are thriving on television. Gotham, Constantine ,The Flash and Arrow, and all marvels got is Agents of B.O.R.D.E.M. Yes I know it’s gotten better after Winter Soldier, but they’re really gonna need to get their crap together if they’re gonna compete with DC for a weekly dose of superhero.

    • Oliver Queen

      I’m hoping they can even each other out, since Marvel’s got Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Iron Fist, Luke Cage and Agent Carter shows in production and DC has Bats vs Sups, Justice League and hopefully the rest of the supposed leaked slate of films in production, maybe then people can start comparing Marvel and DC more equally instead of repeatedly using the arguments where DC doesn’t compare to Marvel in movies or Marvel can never reach the height of success that DC has in television. Just speaking as a fan of both universes here.

      • Kyle Chandler

        Yeah, I think marvel clearly has the edge film, but I think TV-wise it looks to be an awesome competition where fans of both universes are the real winners.

        SHIELD was a toe-dip for sure, but marvel is bringing the heat to netflix in what sounds like an awesome plan (4 shows and then a team-up show?! that’s great!)

        And on the DC side we have Green Arrow, Flash, and Constantine?! Gotham still has something to prove for me, but are you kidding!? Who thought that we would have access to all this great comic-inspired entertainment even 10 years ago?

        I love them both too but I must admit they each have different strengths. DC kills it at television, animated movies, and video games. Whereas Marvel took the film industry by storm, has excellent cartoons and seems to merchandise better. As for the comics that started them all. Well DC has its flaws but many of their series are good and boast fine writers. Whereas Marvel at this moment is just muddled and convoluted and nearly impossible for new readers to jump on. So yeah it’s not a matter of which is better in general, but which market. They way I see it. They win some, they lose some.
