The Marvel DC war has been going on for 4 years now and it all began when DC also decided to start their shared universe with Man of Steel. DC movies have been having quite the backlash even after making money on the box office as critics have not supported the movies, except for Wonder Woman. Fans have also been divided into these movies. Marvel movies, on the other hand, have had the support of the critics and the fans and have also made big bucks at the box office as well. Marvel is so far ahead and a way bigger brand, that DC is not even in the league. Here is a list of movies that prove that.
