Samuel L. Jackson argues that Marvel makes better movies than DC comics.
Samuel L. Jackson is extremely loyal to the Marvel franchise. The veteran actor recently spoke with MTV News and asserted that Marvel movies are better than DC comic movies.
The actor told MTV News that Marvel films, unlike those of a certain competitor, pull off the delicate balance of pleasing fans while still appealing to mainstream audiences.
“I think Marvel has figured out a way to make those movies accessible to the public [in a way] that DC hasn’t,” Jackson said.
The Nick Fury actor says he is surprised that films based on DC’s beloved stable of superheroes aren’t greeted with a more enthusiastic response from audiences. “I don’t know why you can’t get [people excited about] Batman, Superman [and can’t get] people as juiced up to be a part of that,” he continued.
Nick Fury may be right on some accounts but, Christopher Nolan’s recreation of Batman in the Dark Knight has shown that the DC comic book franchise has the ability to shock, surprise, and entertain audiences.
