I think Marvel movies are better than DC movies.

Let us compare latest work of marvel and dc. you see dc comics have collaborated with great directors (Nolan ,Snyder)who make intelligent script which is different but Marvel have stuck to same formula that they have been using since Spiderman 2003
.There(dc) movies have some best pieces of acting roles in modern cinema and they do not go for only boom boom and highlighting heroes as ....heroes not showcasing there human side(like marvel does).look for acting of Heath ledger who totally brought new dimension to role of joker whereas same cannot be said for any marvel hero as no body in their camp has delivered aan academy award winning performance.

These sources show that despite only 6 more movies than DC, Marvel has more than double the profit at the box office, and that is not even counting the revenue of Avengers 2.
While collection is not everything, it is an indicator of many things.
How can you say that Marvel has been 'using the same formula'? How is Avengers and Spider man related in any way? Is X-men related to Spider-man? Marvel has a lot of creative writers that have brought the comic book to the screen, and resulted in mostly positive feedback worldwide.
All we have in DC is Batman. None of the other movies have brought as much profit as Batman in the DC universe. But that is still quite puny compared to Marvel. Awards are an indication of nothing, although it is prestigious it is not voted upon by the actual audience. Marvel has great acting in many movies, such as Wolverine, Mystique and Magneto in X-men, Iron man, Thor and Hulk in the Avengers, and Ultron's performance in Avengers 2 was awesome according to me and my friend.
DC hasn't really stepped up yet. It plans to release Justice League soon, but other than that many characters like Flash, Shazam, Wonder woman etc. have not got the big screen yet, whereas Marvel has already proceeded on linking their characters to destroy the box office.
Waiting for Con's rebuttals

So you say hulk's acting is great(since when did smashing everything become great acting )and you compare it to acting of heath ledger ,truly you deserve Oscar. Except X men days of future past none of their scripts in any movie have come up with anything new while DC on other hand at least portray their super heores in realistic way not like avengers where humans are considered worthless just because they have no power. The most ridiculous statement in your whole argument is saying that batman series of DC is puny in front of Marvel's avengers, the thing is your tiny brain cannot comprehend the sheer awesomeness The Dark knight , I mean even the worst of movie fans know that heath ledgers portrayal of The joker was the best piece of acting in modern cinema and either you know nothing about acting or you have really not seen the movie for you are saying that marvel has got better acting than DC.
Coming to DC not writing good script Sir you take all writers of Marvel universe(we might lend you some of DC) combine them with all other universes (except DC) and make them write a script and multiply it by as many writers you have and you still won't be able to cross one tenth of what Nolan in DC universe has done.
DC universe was not taking marvel highly before but now since Marvel has started this war we are bringing movies and there is no reason in saying that you have won this war before we even entered the battle.
Look at suicide squad , Man of steel all of these movies have different script and they are not only good vs evil (something which marvel has not got out of) but beyond that nd show true shades of humanity unlike Marvel has ever done
Waiting for your rebuttal

One of the major reason for dc being better than marvel is the fact that unlike marvel dc comics are not limited to superhero film but have expanded beyond that

DC movies are more mature. Not a knock on Marvel whatsoever; their movies are far more fun to watch. But if you're looking for a comic book film with depth, a gritty tone, and shows the struggles of their characters in depth, DC's your studio. (I personally enjoy Marvel more, but appreciate DC more)
