First off, if you have not seen it, here it is the first trailer for Captain America: Civil War
Ok, great, there it is. So what? People are absolutely losing their minds over this trailer. To me, it looks cheesy. Every Marvel movie looks cheesy. I do not get the hype. Do not get me wrong they are well made with half way decent story lines but I just cannot get behind them. Before you accuse me of just being a jealous and jaded DC Comics fan, I should tell you I love Daredevil and Jessica Jones on Netflix.
So what is the difference? 100% style. When you watch Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Arrow, Batman, Man of Steel they are dark, and gritty. Versus Marvel movies which for the most part are bright and vibrant (think first Michael Keaton Batman vs Batman and Robin)
For me, superhero films should be dark and gritty. There are of course exceptions to this rule, such as The Flash. And I do not dislike ALL Marvel movies. The Thor films have been perfection for me. I am just having a hard time getting behind Marvel films, but would love to see them make more Netflix series.
Captain America: Civil War hits theaters in May, 2016
