Why does DC struggle a bit with live action compared to comics?
Hey, don't get me wrong, I like DC films and stuff such as Wonder Woman, Joker and The Dark Knight are in my top 10 CBMs but is DC more consistently good in comics?
So far, I managed to make a list out the movies that are good or worth a watch, counting also the graphic novels
4. History of violence
5. Road to Perdition
6. Mask of Phantasm
7. Lego Batman
8. Batman 1989
9. Batman Forever (I think this film is as good as Hulk 2003, it's actually watchable and not an abomination)
10. Batman Returns
11. Batman Begins
12. The Dark Knight Rises
13. The Dark Knight
14. Superman II
15. Superman 1978
16. Wonder Woman
21. V For Vendetta
So, DC movies have been mostly hit and miss like the Star Wars franchise but when they're good, they are in my top 10 CBMs of all time.
I have exactly 10 DC films rated with an 8 or above and the rest between a 7 and a 7.5 for now.
Why they have been kinda inconsistent? I like DC but their comics have been higher quality wise by miles, considering stuff like Watchmen, Red Son, Killing Joke , Lanterns by Johns and the list goes and on and on.
Note: I like both Marvel and DC with probably a small edge to DC overall but in Movies, I think that Marvel has done better and utilized their characters in a better way. This post is not to bash DC, It's just a comparison about their consistency.
