Maybe they’ll save it. All the pieces. Store it in the town hall attic and rebuild it in a hundred years. Wonder who the hell we were. 

Riverdale, “Chapter Four: The Last Picture Show”

You know, I’ll readily admit that so far, the Marvel Cinematic Universe as a whole has had consistently better film output than the current DC Extended Universe.

But on the other hand:

  • DC didn’t make Superman secretly a member of the Klan during a surge of racist and xenophobic rhetoric and politics in the US
  • DC also didn’t make their Jewish characters like Harley Quinn or Batwoman into pseudo-Nazis while the US is under a blatantly anti-Semitic political administration
  • DC also didn’t ask comic shop employees to wear T-shirts with pseudo-Nazi logos or to cover their store logos with pseudo-Nazi symbols
  • DC also, in my knowledge, never blamed slumping sales on being too diverse in their lineup
  • Which isn’t to say they haven’t had their share of tone-deaf and flat-out insulting gaffes, but when New 52 didn’t do as well as they expected I know they didn’t blame it on having a Green Lantern and a Batman who were Muslim
  • Marvel Studios has yet to release a solo superhero film starring a woman (Elektra is a Fox film).  DC’s had two female-led cinematic releases (three if you consider Evey to be the main character of V for Vendetta), those being Supergirl and Catwoman.  And yes, Supergirl and Catwoman were terrible, but at least they exist.  An attempt was made
  • The current DC Extended Universe will also give us Wonder Woman before the MCU gives us Captain Marvel
  • If the current planned lineup for the DC Extended Universe holds, then their first five solo film leads will probably be two white men (Man of Steel’s Henry Cavill and presumably whoever plays Captain Marvel in Shazam!), a Jewish woman (Wonder Woman, Gal Gadot), a Native Hawaiian man (Aquaman, Jason Momoa), and a black man (Cyborg, Ray Fisher).  The first solo film in the MCU with a lead who isn’t a white man will be Black Panther, their thirteenth solo film.
  • While Marvel was making Captain America and Magneto into HYDRA agents, DC made Snagglepuss into a gay Southern Gothic playwright because why not
  • While DC has its own fair share of fuckery, bad decisions, pointless, flow-wrecking crossovers, and other such garbage, at least they haven’t blown so many dog whistles at the alt-right in the past year that it’s very hard to consider it tone-deafness or coincidence at this point

So in conclusion, as we currently stand, DC’s on Marvel’s left.

when i think of hugh jackman being wolverine for 17 years. it just reminds me that at the same time, halle berry was storm and anna paquin was rogue. those are 17 years we could of had a female driven superhero film and marvel did not do it. they didn’t even try. it’s 2017 and marvel’s had 17 years to give us better representation and they’ve done nothing 

Hulk vs Thor

Okay I know everyone is about their “Loki being eternally triggered from Hulk” jokes but it’s actually I think the complete opposite

The whole set-up of the fight is a distinct parallel to Gladiator fights in the Colosseum from the Roman Empire era.

And we already know that Thor is playing for the Grandmaster

So we can easily assume this booth-thing balcony is where the the owners sit

Which means he

is playing for him


So like, I don’t know how that’s working, maybe Loki promised to help Bruce get back to Midgard Earth if he helped Loki win against the Grandmaster because he has something Loki wants? no idea really, but hey, tHAT’S JUST A THEORY, A MARVEL THEORY, ANNNNNNND CUT.
