Aquaman, easily. The movie wasn't great, but it's actions and designs were definitely it's strong points

Aquaman is a top 3 comic book movie in terms of visuals. I can name like 5 shots in that movie better than anything we saw in Ragnarok.

Thor ragnorok was visually stunning but I’m going to have to go with Aquaman. The trench scene was very well execute.

Anyone voting Ragnarok must have gone to the toilet when they were showing Atlantis, that blows anything in the MCU out of the water

The only thing Ragnarock has that competes with Aquaman is the the Valkyrie vs Hela shot.

@aka_aka_aka_ak:

Atlantis looked like a video game. It was no better than some of the shots in Black Panther

What I've realized now is that the world in the MCU looks more realistic while DCEU goes for a more aesthetically pleasing look.

So obviously DCEU movies will look better even if MCU has better CGI because making things look real is tougher than making things look aesthetic.

Same reason for why people voted Aquaman in an Aquaman vs Infinity War comparison.

Aquaman. I mean, sure there were some inconsistencies, however there were a lot more memorable moments using visual effects.

That swim scene with those parademon look alikes was crazy good. Probably my favourite scene in the film.

@monsterstomp: When you say Parademons you talking about the Trench right? Or I'm getting my movies mixed up.

DCEU movies look better than the MCU films in general.

The kiss scene of Aquaman already had better Visual Effects than anything in the MCU.

Ragnarok. Everyone praising Atlantis but for me that was what looked the worst for a live action movie. In general, it would have worked better for an animated movie.

Since one group of fans felt so uncomfortable with constantly being told how their brand is inferior in that department, they started to elevate every single shot of good CGI to compete.

Not even close. Aquaman is miles ahead.
