Poll: Is it plausible for a conglomerate to organize a conspiracy to promote an entire cinematic universe and denigrate another? (33 votes)

Yes, its plausible 24%
No 76%

I am not going to name any particular cinematic universe or company for the sake of preserving this thread from turning bad.

Just that it crosses my mind that there's a particular film franchise featuring a shared cinematic universe, where the critics' reception to the film has been positive overall. It has released 18 films so far and ALL of them had each over 50% of critics' approval of the film. This is surprising and I thought about how plausible it is to have 18 consecutive films without getting an overall "rotten rating" (i.e.: less than 50% approval).

And there's a competing but new franchise where the majority of the films so far had been denigrated by the critics even though they are making the same genre of films.

So do you think that there's a particular conglomerate that had been supporting the older film franchise from failing, through various tactics such as bribing the critics, resort to subliminal advertisement planted across the entire world, along with corporate and political moves, that influenced the critics to view their favored franchise more positively?

Do explain and discuss.

Maybe they just make good movies? There's no conspiracy. Some companies know how to make good movies, others don't.

Your post is too vague. I have no idea which conglomerates and cinematic universes you could possibly be referring to.

Also, c'mon bruh.

I also liked how he said he wasn't going to name the franchise, but there's only one franchise in history to reach the kind of success described in the OP.

I think said cinematic company did it to themselves by creating garbage sequels, and garbage 'bad guy' team up movies that had nothing to do with the over all advancement of said universe .

The DCEU is done because of trash films, just accept it. The few that weren't trash were total letdowns compared to how they should have been.

But no it's a conspiracy lmao. /sarcasm

No. If for not other reason, Warner Bro....I mean the unnamed failing franchise could easily have afforded to do all the things that Marvel/Di...I mean the unnamed successful franchise might plausibly have done.

Maybe the other company is just making bad movies? Besides Batman hits, the last... (how many?) DC movies before the DCEU were terrible.

Jonah Hex

Green Lantern

Catwoman

Superman returns

Batman and Robin

Batman Forever

Super Girl

Superman IV

Superman III

Maybe WB is just really bad at making comicbook movies. 1 good one for every 4 of 5 stinkers. Which is exactly how the DCEU is going. They need no help from Marvel.

No. The universe just makes good films. The other universe made on good film starring an Amazonian

Its a conspiracy on the mcu's part to make good movies and a conspiracy of incompetence on WB's part to have handed the keys to their cinematic universe to Zack Snyder and to tamper with the movies too much after he shoots them. That's it in a nutshell.

But I think M is the only company to make this many good movies in a row.

Sure, it's all controlled by a few bavarian freemasons known as the illuminati and the deep state.
