Will DC struggle to emulate Marvelís cinematic universe?
It's funny how things work sometimes. In the world of comic books The Avengers were formed in reaction the huge success of DC's Justice League of America and now, fifty years later, the reverse is happening on the silver screen. Marvel's interconnected film world - an experiment that culminated with 'Avengers Assemble' - has proven to be the next step for superhero films on the big screen. It was a success to the tune of $1.5 billion, and Marvel are now building to an 'Avengers' sequel in 2015.
Elsewhere Sony Pictures are reportedly working towards bringing supervillain team the Sinister Six to battle Andrew Garfield's Spider-Man, and over at Fox Patrick Stewart and Ian McKellan's X-Men will next year come face to face with James McEvoy and Michael Fassbender's younger X-Men in 'Days of Future Past'.
