Step Your Game Up, DC/WB

With the release of the new X-Men film trailer, Marvel and Disney further show their comic film dominance. This article sums up their new strides.

I for one have always wondered why DC is so outmoded when it comes to film. I think this has something to do with the unnatural focus that the world has on Batman. I wonder if  also maybe  it’s DC’s focus on the legend of Superheroes vs. Marvel’s focus on the reality of Superheroes that has something to do with it. Anyway, read on, Extremis Fans.

In the last week, Marvel Studios released trailers for next year’s slate of superhero fare, and if these teasers are any indication, Warner Bros. is going to have some catching up to do — even if they did manage to shoehorn Batman into the Man of Steel sequel. Still, the only thing interesting about the Batman/Superman movie is that they filmed a football game between Metropolis and Gotham, this time withoutHines Ward. Meanwhile, the Marvel Cinematic Universe (via Disney) and the X-Universe (via Fox) are simultaneously laying down the gauntlet for dope movie trailers (we shall see if the actual movies live up to the promise of the previews).

But right now, all we have are the trailers, and they’re both pretty spectacular.
