Marvel is usually not to my tastes, so having them make a film that is closer to what I like was unexpected.
I completely get what you're saying; I'm basically in the same boat. I respect the MCU films, I know they're great. I enjoy most of them but Cap2 was the first one I really fell in love with. I think Marvel may have stepped their game up with that one; and frankly they needed to imho.

Eveyone has their style preferences.

Sometimes this place makes me depressed. When I joined the Hype, I chose to start on this board first. Because I prefer DC. I thought joining a DC board was logical because that's what I like most right now.

But half the time, I get attacked for having a preference for DC. On a DC board.

Look people: It's not about the logo. The Marvel logo is just something movies that I don't like as much as others have in common. I didn't just decide to hate them because they're Marvel. I don't even hate them. I just prefer something else. I watch the movies. I just don't like them as much as I've liked DC moves. I don't even like all of DC, but their recent movies have been to my liking. So, I say I prefer DC and chose to hang around a DC board. If Marvel switches things ups and makes more movies I like...Guess what? I'll start to like more Marvel.

So, there it is. I'm Mrs. Kent and I prefer DC movies right now. Is that ok with people? Or am I a bad person for not liking both equally?

Thank you. I'm tired of being accused of just "judging by the logo" because I have a preference.

It's. not. the. goddamned. logo.

I just like some movies more than others and the ones I like more are usually DC.

I fully support you mrs k!! I enjoy the marvel films and pay to see every one of them in the theater. But I love the approach and the tone of DC's movies. They just resonate with me more. It has nothing to do with some silly Marvel vs DC fanboy feud either, it's just what I prefer.

Don't sweat it, Mrs.Kent... I'm right there with yah and have debated this topic before. You're not alone

I only saw Iron Man and Avengers in theater. Cap:FA, Thor, Thor:TDW and IM2 I saw when it came out on DVD. I didn't see Winter Soldier yet and didn't see IM3 yet because frankly, I just don't have the urge to see it (Winter Soldier FOR SURE. IM3 still looks ****** to me.)

As bad as TASM2 has been ripped to shreds, I've been looking forward to that and will be seeing that over WS in theaters. It's just personal preference.

Thanks to you folks who don't think I'm the anti-Christ for having a preference. I've just had to defend myself about that far too much. I'm about done with it and think I might just be quiet about it from now on. It's just not possible to have a preference for one or the other without being a sheep who just "judges the movies by a logo."

Anyways, yay for May 2016.

My top five CBMs

1. The Avengers
2. The Dark Knight (1.1, really)
3. CA:TWS
4. Spider-Man 2
5. X-2

For the record, I don't have a problem with people preferring one company's movies over another if that's their taste. I can't stand the fanboys of either side, though, the ones who have to build their movies up by tearing the other company's movies down.

One thing I'm confident we're going to get with this & JL are some absolutely mind blowing trailers. MoS, 300 & Watchmen all had at least one trailer that is among my all time favourites. And they didn't have the content to compete with a JL!

Frankly, I think you're overreacting quite a bit. You are not a "victim" and no one is bullying you. There's no need to cry about it and make everyone feel pity for you. You are not being being "attacked" as a "sheep who just judges movies by a logo."

Your exact words were "That movie confuses me because I don't usually have Marvel in my top 5."

That line doesn't say you prefer DC, but in the end the logo doesn't matter. It says that the movie being made by Marvel makes you hesitate to put it in your top 5.

Clearly the logo DOES matter. Maybe more than you'd like to admit. That doesn't mean you are being attacked or told to think differently.

I'm done with this discussion with you, as you clearly are not able to defend your opinions without crying a river about how you're being accused of being a "bad person" or a "sheep" or even the "anti-Christ"....

I wonder if we'll get anything at SDCC this year. I'm thinking it will be similar to the A:AoU tease last year of Ultrons face being created. But probably not even that much. Most likely just a clip of the official logo coming into view with maybe a soundbite of Affleck.

But seriously, what's happening May 19th?

I wonder which of the Bat-Vehicles we will be seeing in the film, and which artist/era Snyder will be mining for their design.

The second trailer for MOS was a work of art. Oh boy did I think we were in for something special.
