This guy has some really good points.

Marvel makes the best Super-Hero movies while DC Lags behind. No surprise there.

But on TV, DC dominates (at least for now) because at least they have a much better Cinematic Universe and aren't afraid to make direct references to others sharing the same universe while the opposite of that is true of Marvel.

Marvel, get it together and do better!


The point is to make money - and the MCU is doing that in a way that DC isnt even close to.

As for Marvels TV work, I think SHIELD sucks big time, but Daredevil was excellent and I am very impressed with Jessica Jones thus far.

Regarding how well the TV shows are intergrated with the movies, the critic has a point here. A0S idea of 'intergration' seems to consist of dropping a name every so often or referring to the fact there was an invasion of New York, and none of the other TV shows have really done any better so far.

What I would say is that its early days for he Marvel TV stuff, alsi Civil War may prove to be the watershed opportunity for intergrating the casts of both mediums.

On a personal note, I dont really want the likes of Daredevil to be tied to tightly to the MCU because ~Daredevil has always been better written when he was somewhat detached from the wider Marvel Universe.
