A video of DC’s biggest mistakes shows why they might never catch up with Marvel

Marvel and DC have competed at comic book shops and newsstands for decades, but the stakes are higher than ever as the two brands compete at the box office.

With marketing and promotion included, the production budget of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice was likely north of $400 million, which makes its impressive $860 million worldwide haul slightly less impressive. But failing to hit $1 billion isn’t the biggest mistake DC has ever made.

In fact, it’s not even close.

15 of the coolest fictional cars in the history of TV and cinema

Everyone has a favorite fictional character from a movie or TV show.

If you’re an action fan, it might be Indiana Jones, John McClane or Neo. Sci-fi fans likely prefer Luke Skywalker or James T. Kirk, while superhero fanatics might have trouble deciding between Iron Man, Batman, Captain America and Superman.

But some of the most memorable characters in the history of media aren’t really characters at all, but rather the vehicles that the characters get around in.

20 incredible scenes from popular movies that the actors didn’t want to film

Great art occasionally requires great sacrifice, but not every artist is ready and willing to put everything on the line in order to chase perfection.

In fact, many of the biggest blockbuster movies of the past several decades have put their stars in increasingly uncomfortable scenarios, forcing them to step outside of their comfort zones to bring the world of the film to life.

‘Guardians’ is a crazy Russian superhero movie starring a machine gun toting bear

It’s nearly impossible to overstate the impact that superheroes and comic books have had on the film industry over the past several years. From Spider-Man to Iron Man to The Avengers to Batman v Superman, superheroes have been the biggest draw at the theater (other than Star Wars and Jurassic Park) for nearly a decade. And now the trend is spreading worldwide.

Movie Actors

A list of actors who consistently appear in either the best or worst movies

A list of actors who consistently appear in either the best or worst movies

I heard an interesting debate the other day regarding whether or not movie stars are replaceable as it pertains to film quality. In other words, would Deadpool have been any less or more cool with Matt Damon as the lead as opposed to Ryan Renyolds? Does a film like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button need the acting prowess of Brad Pitt, or would the film have worked just as well with an equally competent actor no one had ever heard of?

Even if we assume that most actors are replaceable, it’s hard to deny that there exists a small contingent of actors who are so talented – i.e Sean Penn in Milk or John Malkovich in In the Line of Fire – that it’s near impossible to imagine them being replaced by anyone else without affecting the resulting film. On top of this, some actors just have a knack for knowing how to pick the right type of projects that really enable them to show off their acting chops.

Following in the footsteps of the original trilogy, Star Wars: The Force Awakens didn’t feature an especially complex story. A girl who was abandoned by her parents finds herself in the middle of a galaxy-spanning adventure while the remains of an evil empire rise from the ashes and attempt to regain power.

But despite the simple story, the movie is still holding on to plenty of secrets.

Clips from superstar actors’ early roles show what they were like before they were famous

Landing a big role very early in your acting career is the exception to rule. For most actors — even the biggest superstars on the planet — it has taken years of hard work for them to make a name for themselves. And along the way, they’ve all taken minor roles here and there to make ends meet and hone their craft. Of course, it’s always fun to look back on those roles now that they’re big superstars, and we’re going to have some fun right now. More →

Explore Bruce Wayne’s house and the Batcave with this awesome Google Maps Easter egg

Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice hasn’t exactly been on the receiving end of glowing reviews. It’s seemingly been panned by critics and currently sports a 30% rating on Rotten Tomatoes. In stark contrast, the whimsical and action-packed Deadpool sports a healthy 84% rating.

Nonetheless, it’s a safe bet that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice will do reasonably well at the box office, thanks in no small part to a concerted marketing push from Warner Bros. On that note, Google decided to get in on the cross promotion action via a nice easter egg on Google Maps which lets users take a 360 degree tour of Bruce Wayne’s swanky condo and even the hallowed Batcave.
