Other DC in-Develpment films are Man of Steel (the Superman reboot), a new Batman reboot, Constantine 2, Deadman, Northlanders, and Shazam!

From looking at both lists (Marvel and DC), who do you think has the better lineup? Do you tend to prefer DC films over Marvel's, or vice-versa?

  1. DC is superior to Marvel in my opinion. The Flash is the best one. :)

  2. Marvel all the way, no question. DC only has Batman and Superman, I'm not even sure if a Justice League movie would even work on the big screen. DC is best at animation, not live-action. Good list. :)

    Marvel has Iron Man. DC has Green Lantern. Is there any competition?
