Justice League Updates: You will have to be living under a rock to not know about the rivalry between MCU and the DCEU. MCU or the Marvel Cinematic Universe is well known for its characters such as Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, etc. Famous DCEU characters include Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, etc. 

Both the universes are iconic in themselves. Their storylines, the characters, the filming style, everything really; they are worlds apart. Despite this, both of them are pitted against each other endlessly. The fandoms have a rivalry unlike any other. 

Now that everything to do with these universes has already been compared, we can’t compare anything else, right? 

Now that’s where you are wrong. Today, we will analyze which one of these mind-shattering universes have a better franchise style. 

Marvel has an expansive universe that seems to know no bounds. With 23 movies already out, they have 14 more in the making. Marvel has also dipped its toes in the world of television series. They have made 12 shows on various networks and they have 12 more shows in the making. 

Marvel has entertained us all with its growing franchise. They are already in the fourth phase of the universe; they do not seem like they are going to stop anytime soon. They are coming out with four new movies this year – Black Widow, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, Eternals and, (Untitled) Spider-Man: Far From Home sequel. They are coming out with six new shows – WandaVision, the Falcon and the Winter Soldier, Loki, What If…?, Ms. Marvel and, Hawkeye.

Zack Snyder’s Justice League

On the other hand, DCEU or the DC Extended Universe is a limited one when compared to Marvel. Zack Snyder who is best known for his work in DC seems to have formulated a plan to give the viewers a one storyline experience. He wanted to create a series of movies based on which spin-offs and sequels could be made. He came out with Man of Steel in 2013 which was followed by Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice in 2016. The plan was to follow these up with the Justice League movies. Due to the way audiences took Justice League in 2017, things did not go according to plan for him. 

To rival Marvel’s, DC has released 9 movies and 6 are still in the making. Just like their counterpart, they have dipped their toes in the world of television series as well. They have put out 2 shows and 2 are in the making. 

Now onto the main question – which universe is better?

If you are someone who enjoys a limited storyline with limited characters, I would highly recommend indulging in DCEU. If you want to be fascinated by various characters and their tropes and if you enjoy individual movies for all your characters, MCU is for you. Either way, both the universes have something unique to offer you. If you are someone like me who enjoys both these things, please entertain yourself with both. They are amazing!
