DC Movies To Be Edgier Than Marvel’s

The long-running comic book rivalry between Marvel Comics and DC Comics has grown well beyond the pages of comic books and is now playing out on both the small and big screens.

According to Yellow Pages, Marvel already has a leg up on DC as they are several years into production of their Marvel Universe movies having released 10 movies thus far. There are also many more in production. Now, DC and Warner Bros. are jumping into the fray, as they will release their first DC Universe film next year in the form of Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

According to Variety, Warner Bros. CEO Kevin Tsujihara said the tone of the DC movies would be quite different from the Marvel films. He said the characters and stories of the DC films would be more steeped in realism than what has been seen in the Marvel films. Furthermore, Tsujihara described the DC movies as being a little bit edgier than Marvel’s.

We have already seen some signs of the edginess DC Movies will embody. First, Warner Bros. released the first photo of the warrior look Aquaman will ebody in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman film. Second, the studio is moving forward with a Suicide Squad movie, which would feature some of DC Comics’ grittiest villains.

With so many superhero movies being made, the edgier tone could prove a great idea to stand out from the crowd.
