Why are people much more familiar with Marvel than with DC?


I mean, Marvel has got:

Captain America
Iron Man
Spider-Man
Incredible Hulk
Ant-Man
Guardians of the Galaxy
X-Men
Fantastic Four

And all DC can muster up is:

Batman
Superman
Wonder Woman

Why the discrepancy?

reply

I don't understand the question.

DC also has Green Lantern, The Flash, Supergirl, Aquaman and Shazam.

Do you mean that the DC films aren't as popular?

reply

Because Marvel has made more film, and more people have seen those films.

Any other questions?

reply

I reject this question. I'd say Marvel films are better quality and more Marvel films are produced in general, if that's the point you're making. But people recognize Superman and Batman plenty, as well as most of Batman's villains just as much as they do Marvel characters - and that's without having even seen the films.

Whereas, most people don't even remember that the X-Men are part of the MCU when thinking about Marvel films because all they really focus on are the Avengers.

Politely disagree. I'm sure more people heard of Aquaman than anybody following Hulk in that first list.

DC = Warner Brothers = big budget for major characters
Marvel = Disney = BIG BUDGET for every character.
