The ongoing debate among comic book fans on whether the DC Extended Universe (DCEU) or the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU) is better is tackled by YouTuber Evan Puschak, who says it has everything to do with the action scenes.
Puschak, the host of the weekly pop culture YouTube series “The Nerdwriter,” says in a compilation of clips that action scenes that are frequently interrupted with dramatic pauses are an important touch to Marvel films. For example, when Black Widow asks Hawkeye if they are still friends while fighting the big battle at the airport in “Captain America: Civil War.”
He also talks about the stylized coloring, super slow motion and “ridiculous” camera motions typically used in DC films.
The MCU has released significantly more films than the DCEU and also has made a ton more money, but generally, Marvel films also receive better reviews from fans and critics alike. Of course, “Wonder Woman” was an outlier, which received a 92 percent score on Rotten Tomatoes.
