Marvel is SO much more enjoyable and much more successful. I will say that DC isn't THAT overly bad, I mean, Shazam was really fun. Wonder Woman is super inspirational, and Aquaman was also pretty good, not terrible but it wasn't too enjoyable either. It was on the better side of average, kind of like Man of Steel or Justice League which weren't that bad in my opinion. Suicide Squad or BvS...let's not get started. There's also a big gap between Marvel's "average" movies and DC's "average" movies. Marvel is so well organized, financially successful, and open to such a wide array of audiences, that it has set a super high standard. The MCU's "average" movie would be something like Guardians of the Galaxy 2, Ant-Man and the Wasp, or even Captain Marvel which I didn't enjoy but technically speaking...it is still average. The best DCEU movies can beat them, but even Shazam (the best DCEU movie by far) doesn't appeal to me as much as Spider-Man Far From Home or something and don't even TRY to get me started on Infinity War or Endgame. Don't get me started, I absolutely adore the New 52 Shazam run and I love how much of the movie is based on the comics but again, Endgame literally beat Avatar in box office earnings so...that literally sets a new record for movies in general. DC just cannot compare in the SLIGHTEST bit when it comes to movies.

DCEU movies aren't very good. Batman trilogy were very good (but they aren't DCEU). For example, in Justice League Superman beats Steppenwolf alone, Diana, Batman, Cyborg and Flash did nothing actually. In DCEU movies, Batman does nothing, Superman solos whole JL (there's no teamwork). Shazam and Aquaman were good. But there is not a DCEU solo movie at the levels of Winter Solider, Thor: Ragnarok ar CW. Movies are too dark

DC does a super job with most of their television series and far better than Marvel. However, Marvel seems to have a considerable advantage with their films. I guess it is a question of films vs. tv programs and which is more important.

MCU easily. This is why. The MCU knew what they were from the start while the DCEU were just trying catch up to the mcu 5 years later MCU characters have real character development while most of the DCEU films were trying to catch up. Like justice league and BvS. However the DCEU is picking up their game now with Shazam and Aquaman. But currently they aren't at the mcu level yet.

Okay but the other trash that Fox and Sony have made is so bad that the Spider-Man movies can't really excuse it.

DCEU are picking up their game. Wonder Woman and Aquaman were good movies. And though personally I believe Shazam is trash, most people like it. But the MCU are much much much much much better still.

Why do you believe Shazam is trash? I'd like to discuss this because I strongly disagree

I love all DCEU movies, but MCU is still better. I would say that DCEU solo movies are a bit better than MCU, but their team up movies are far weaker than MCU

Does that mean you like JL, Suicide Squad, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice, Man of Steel and Shazam? Ewww.

Marvel Cinematic Universe vs DC Extended Universe
@windshadow Hei man it's my opinion, if you don't like them it's fine. The only weak DCEU movie imo is only Justice League, although it is still quite enjoyable. Suicide Squad for me is very enjoyable and fun, though I agree it's story is bad. Batman v Superman is a great movie imo (though a bit dissapointed), especially the extended cut. I love Man of Steel. And a vast majority of people love Shazam, even critics, so I don't understand why you hate it

See I don't agree with Batman v Superman, or Suicide Squad. I think they are VERY awful and not fun to watch, honestly cringey at times.

Yeah I understand why some people don't like BVS and SS. BvS has some plot holes and maybe about batman killing people or Lex Luthor character or superman's death unmeaningful/too rushed or batman fighting superman is too short or maybe the knightmare that comes out of nowhere and doesn't lead to anything, but overall I think it is still a great movie, especially after you watch the extended version. There are maybe at least some aspects that we all can appreciate like batman's fight scene, actually all fight scenes are great, the cinematography and wonder woman's debut

and although i agree that Suicide Squad plot is bad, but overall I think it is very enjoyable and entertaining

I think DC is finally starting to get it but their movies still don't even compare to everything the MCU has brought us.
