So today i’ve seen a lot of people talking about DC’s decision not to link their movie universe and their television universes together. I’ve seen praise, and I’ve seen bitching. But you know what I’ve seen the most. People complaining about that they aren’t copying exactly what Marvel’s doing, and you know what? It annoys the shit out of me.
Just because Marvel are off doing their own thing in no way means DC should follow and be all “Hey guys, look, look at me, I can do the exact same thing too!” In fact they should do the complete opposite. Having two separate universes allows both of them to set out and do completely different things and shine the spot light on completely different characters. And we all know how much DC loves their Multiverse stuff, so if one day DC do want to join the two universes, hey we could have a Crisis where the two universes meet.
Look, I like Marvel as much as DC, and I love what they’ve done with their cinematic universe. I like it a lot more then their current comics universe and the philosophy of inflated comic prices, endless events and countless re-numbering. But having to listen to the endless suggestion that DC should copy everything exactly is just stupid. Lets wait and see what they have up their sleeves first before we continue with this Marvel circle jerk.
