AceShowbiz - While Marvel has been successful with its already-established Cinematic Universe, DC is developing its own Cinematic Universe. The two seem to rival each other as both of them focus on superhero movie. In an interview with EW for its latest printed edition, %cBen Affleck% reveals the difference between DC movies and Marvel movies.
Affleck gives his opinion from DC Comics perspective, saying that the difference between DC and Marvel is in the level of realism and tone. "It [DC] is more mythic, it is more grand in that way, and it is a little more realistic. Just by their nature, these films can't be as funny or as quick or as glib as Marvel movies," the actor says.
While fans may expect some lightness, humor and fun in upcoming "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice", Affleck's statement seems to diminish their hopes. It turns out that the upcoming movie which will pit Superman (%cHenry Cavill%) against Batman (Affleck) will have a darker atmosphere with more serious tone. Greg Silverman, president of creative development and worldwide production at Warner Bros., had previously stated the same thing. Silverman explained that DC characters tended to have darker dimensions.
DC's highly-anticipated movie "Batman v Superman" will feature other DC superheroes such as Wonder Woman (%cGal Gadot%) and Aquaman (%cJason Momoa%). Directed by Zack Snyder, the movie is slated for a release in the U.S. on March 25, 2016.
