  • Marvel may be winning the movie competition, but do you think they are losing on broadcast television?

  • Possible, but I think Marvel has a bigger presence on Netflix. The DC shows are on there as well, but stuff like Iron Fist, Daredevil, Luke Cage, are exclusive to Netflix.

  • True, but that is a streaming service vs. Broadcast television. More money in broadcasting...at least for now.

  • Marvel movies are better. No one will argue that one. When it comes to TV: DC's Supergirl, Lucifer, Arrow, Legends and Flash are indeed better than Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, Daredevil and Defenders. DC TV shows are a lot more accessible for most. That being said, my favourite comic book TV show right now is Daredevil.

  • I agree that the best so far has been daredevil.

    DC has been making small strides on the big screen. They beat Marvel to the punch on Wonder Woman, and BLA looks like it won't be only gray scale and sadness like BvS and superman was.

  • Waxxpotato, don't be too surprised if the new JLA movie is indeed "only gray scale and sadness". I'm expecting it!

  • With Geoff Johns involved, I will be. Rumor is they brought him in to avoid that!

  • Daredevil is an amazing show. But what bothers me is that they've been bringing all these "B" rated characters into their own shows (Punisher, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, Jessica Jones). I mean c'mon get real. When you were reading comics was anyone ever excited about Iron Fist showing up? Were you and your friends drawing Luke Cage or The Inhumans? What's next for their Netflix series? Squirrel Girl? Wonder Man? Darkhawk? ... I think what makes Daredevil such a great show is that it has a wealth of material to draw from, where these other characters just don't have the depth. That's why in comics they usually appeared as a guest and not as the star.

  • If it makes you feel better, no one is excited when Iron Fist is on the screen either.
