#4. DC’s Doing the Exact Opposite of What Made Marvel Successful
DC wants a piece of The Avengers' 1.5-billion-dollar pie, except they don't have the time or patience for all that universe-building claptrap. For 2016's Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the strategy appears to be “let’s make a bouillabaisse out of all our intellectual property.” Batman v Superman's seemingly pulling an Amazing Spider-Man 2 and throwing in new and unknown versions of Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg, and presumably the first big-screen appearance of Lady Cop.
So what’s the problem with this strategy? Only after DC has raked in the requisite $2 billion with both Batman v Superman and 2018’s Justice League will we likely see Wonder Woman or Aquaman in their own films.
