    Also, battle damage. After Cap and Iron man fight in Civil War you can tell that they’re both hurting just from the makeup and costumes alone. Whereas after Superman fights the Kryptonians in Smallville his hair isn’t even out of place. This happens constantly in the DCEU, how can I believe Wonder Woman was really fighting Doomsday when there’s barely even a splotch of dirt on her face.

    I agree with the overdue of slow motion action sequences. So annoying. It happens with every scene that Wonder Woman is in.

    That's the BIG problem with DC and the characters they choose to "lead" their movies.
    Superman = Super Strength
    WW = Super Strength
    Aquaman= Super Strength
    Shazam= Super Strength
    Flash = Superspeed
    and hence, why Suicide Squad or Batman are "relieves", they think, they have gadgets and different weapons, or creative ways to deal with the 'bad guy'.
    Where Marvel's super power cliche is "super agility" which comes with "enhanced strength", and gives you a good set of moves, that goes from parkour scenes to fist fights.
    And DC's are always uber characters, the LAST kryptonian, the QUEEN of the amazons, the KING of atlantis, the FASTEST man alive, worlds BEST detective. And they're always expected to do the best of the best, the biggest punch, the fastest sprint, the coolest move.

    I disagree DCEU scenes are great I love them, its never one tone, batman fights are differnt from superman and differnt from flash point 😉. Where as marvel Is monotone a repeat of choreographed dancing "kick knee slap duck". Marvel tries to me comedic during some fight which I dont mind but a fight is not comedic it doesnt grab me as it should. I love both movies but everyone is a critic and shares their opinions 🤷‍♂️

    You can't compare mos, bvs, the ugly justice league with Almost 20 marvel movies (since they started making live actions)... Jl is a whole crap, but the other 2 movies before where more serious, realistic and darker than marvel movies... So to me, DC was so much better .. untill they made suicide squad...justice league... Worst And worther.

    When beating the shit out of someone, you don’t pause to make quips. And when arguing physics you showed mainly shots of JL. The rest of the movies do (for the most part) obey the laws of physics.

    Almost all Amazon scenes in Wonder Woman & Justice league should've been mentioned cause damn I was at the edge of my seat when they were running away from Steppenwolf. Also the Batman warehouse scene as many people mentioned. I do agree on the overuse of slowmo :/ Give DC a couple more movies, they've certainly improved as the DCEU movies went along

    I've yet to see a DC or Marvel film since the Nolan films and Raimi's Spider-Man where i cared about a character living or dying. That the same characters that are supposedly in peril are contracted to appear in two three movies down the line also doesn't help.

  • Bee Gill

    The problem with Superman has always been his overwhelming power. Man of Steel (2013) is most engrossing when Clark uses his powers sparingly. Once he goes all in, the tension almost immediately vanishes. In Superman Returns (2006), Clark doesn't flaunt his powers because he realizes how easily they can scare people. Any movie that doesn't center on Superman's struggle to be more human(how often does Superman confront the villain, instead of tearing their head off at Mach 3?), tends to replace the character with a weapon.
    The main DC characters have a lot of power, which isn't a problem in itself. But many of their storylines don't bother finding ways to restrict the characters from using that power. Batman never runs out of high-tech countermeasures, but it's more interesting when Bruce Wayne is caught without his toys. It's more interesting when Clark Kent does things the subtle way to preserve his relationships. Wonder Woman is more real on a crowded street than a battlefield. DC needs to shift their focus back to the reporter, the detective, and the soldier/spy; their problems are more interesting by not having faces to punch.
    Part of Marvel's success comes from characters that are always dwarfed by their enemies' power, by their villains' commitment at any cost. But what Marvel really does best is put the lives their heroes save far above their efforts to defeat the enemy, often to a fault. There's little effort to connect the three DC protagonists by anything deeper than a common goal.

  • Max
    Max 16 days ago

    What I really dislike in most superhero movies is the absence of logic. Because a lot of the times, decisions are made which are obviously wrong or too stupid for anyone to ever make. A good example of this is (although not a superhero movie) "The great Wall", where they have aliens fighting at the chinese wall and basically every defence of the humans is absolutely idiotic, they were just added so that some characters appear braver, because they have this super risky idiot thing to do, and they don't have to come up with some creative way of overcoming the defence.
    These things really bother me, when illogical things are added into a film, just so that a character development becomes easier to write, or the writers don't have to be very creative with the story to get to an action scene they wanted to add. I'd enjoy a film where everything kinda fits together and events don't seem artificial and made up.

    Brother, you hit the nail on the head with this analysis. MCU-while a bit too tongue-in-cheek and “wink at the camera” for me-at least gives the appearance of “reality”. DCEU just looks like a CGI form was given a boat load of $$$ and told “make it big and flashy and horrible and scary and and and and and make it ROAR.” Ugh.

    Yes and no.. recent DC movies have had some great scenes... Dawn of Justice was lacking overall, but the fight between Batman and Superman was intense and had a real sense of urgency, like someone could actually die... Marvel is just consistent and has it's formula down to a science, DC is still experimenting and trying it's own way.

  • Brian Van Buren
    Brian Van Buren 18 days ago

    Honestly, I think the DCEU just needs to take a lot of its character writing and fighting styles from the JLU animated series. Concerning banter, there a great number of scenes where characters interacted mid-fight and it came off entertaining but still remained true to the characters. E.G. when Huntress and Black canary are fighting and Huntress gains the upper hand, she says, "and here I heard you were some kind of brilliant fighter," and Black Canary one-ups her and throws Huntress into a car, retorting, "You heard right." I'll agree with the critic here that the fighting is oftentimes generic punching or hitting, especially in the case of Wonder Woman vs. Ares in the movie, or Superman against Zod. Once again, I think the directors should borrow heavily from JLU, because it showed that a lot of characters who have "brutish" powers could still fight in a dynamic way that kept audiences entertained. Still, the best banter in any DC fight would be Black Canary teaming up with Huntress:
    Canary: "If you call me 'girlfriend' I'm going to drop-kick you into the next county."
    Huntress: "Now don't go all sentimental on me."

    Enjoyed this one and agree with it completely. And it's such a shame because DC could be making really good stuff, especially playing the 'more serious' card.

    Hawkeye’s arrow trick doesn’t make sense. He shoots at the garage. Magic happens to cars.
    Pausing for quips is annoying and takes away the seriousness of the action. Hence, airport Civil War scene felt like a kid throwing his marvel toys around at an airport LEGO set.
    Batman continuously punching Superman and Affleck’s anger conveyed his yearning to beat the hell out of Batman.

    Even the stakes and the settings are bad. Justice League ending brings you to fight in an abandoned town. Superman himself took down stepenwolf in 2-3 punches. That’s just poor writing when your good guy is already strong enough to beat the enemy without breaking a sweat. And this was justice league movie, where there isn’t really a need to bring a whole team together. Superman himself could do it. At least in avengers, hulk is infinitely strong but it still came down to iron man bringing a nuclear missile away from a populated New York and the whole team to keep people from dying

  • Debasish Chapeyar
    Debasish Chapeyar 20 days ago

    this would be the 1st video of yours i down voted. Because... as far DC actions scene goes.. they are far far superior. Character doesn't needs to stop and hold and interact in between fights to portray his characteristics. i strongly believe its visual display of power, strength and timing itself should speaks for the character's personality in those situations..
    and by far DC has mastered in that aspect... because with each fight scene you will actually see the characters personality and what style their action is.
    For example. Superman fight style uses speed, air combat, brute strength and Punches. While with batman fight scenes you can easily figure out his tactician abilities and Punches like a brawler. And with Wonderwoman u can see her using weapons and sword fight like an ancient trained warrior.
    Where as ever marvel fights scene goes like a same martial art styled fight.... every superhero has almost same kind of martial art fighting style, for example look at black panther, Captain america, Black Widow, Winter Soldier, hawkeye, and all other characters during hand to hand combat. looks like they have been trained by a same martial art style.
    so i disagree with your views.
