Fanboy? Jon Favreau said it himself in an interview; I'm not making stuff up. I'm a huge Marvel and DC fan, and I despise people that take sides when they are just trying to create good movies. Justice League is mixed with the creativity of Zack and Joss, even though Joss only did the reshoots when Zack left the project. Most fans are upset because a Marvel director came on board on a DC project.

Marvel director/DC director, campy/dark, funny/serious, doesn't matter. DC has largely not been making good films.

Quality, you could be right about Favreau, but that doesn't mean anyone was first. It's pointless to say who copied who, when basically all studios just try to copy what has been successful. Blade & X-Men came before Batman Begins.
Those movies went more realistic because the last Batman film was too campy & failed, which was Batman & Robin.

There's a reason why DC Comics have been so dark; it's that they've been promoting Batman ever since and even when Superman came on board they introduce Batman V Superman. This has been going on since 1989. Another problem which we have is that Marvel has a lot more movies than DC Comics. The Dark Knight would always be seen as the best DC film. It has a brilliant story, character build, and tone. So you can say DC has never had a good run.

Again. What?

You despise people who "take sides" on movies? Have YOU never
seen a movie you didn't like and took that side in a conversation?

If you've been paying attention to social media that discuss Marvel and DC Comics, they are turning it into an unnecessary verbal war, forgetting the fact that all we want is good content. I don't promote that whatsoever. I think it's very premature.

So you're the guy that watches football and hopes both teams win. Comics are as heated as sports. It's actually GOOD for business to have such dedication. You mention that fanboys trash the other universe, but nobody is even doing that here so why are you still on about it? It's a civil discussion until you step in.

Maybe you should go there and yell at them then and stop acting like it's happening here.

No. He offered his opinion and you called him a "troll". If YOU
had treated him with the respect he deserved this conversation
would have stayed on topic.

No, I haven't been paying attention to social media that discusses
Marvel and DC Comics. I understand that you despise me because
of my opinion but you could answer my questions. Sometimes
instead of putting people down, calling them a “troll” or despising
them you could be open minded and try to understand where
someone else is coming from. Listening to people with other
opinions can lead to respect and understanding. You don't have
to agree but being open to their opinion can help you grow.

I'm often saddened by your statements, confused by your positions
and even offended by your name calling but I do not despise you.
That's because I'm open to your opinions and am willing to listen
on the rare occasions when you answer my questions.

Just for clarification, we're talking DC and Marvel. Trolls belong in the SHREK universe.

Just keep calm and sign the petition for the director's cut for Justice League.
