Live action cinematic adaptations:
I'm a Dc boy, but i have to admit that DC is very late in the film industry (i think all started with Christopher Nolan). Marvel has started already with the phase 2 and they had more things planned.has a lot (most are good) of live action movies, just like:
- IRON MAN
- THE INCREDIBLE HULK
- IRON MAN 2
- CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE FIRST AVENGER
- IRON MAN 3
- THOR: THE DARK WORLD
- CAPTAIN AMERICA: THE WINTER SOLDIER
- GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
- X-MEN: DAYS OF FUTURE PAST
- AVENGERS: AGE OF ULTRON
Below is a list of confirmed and planned movies they plan on bringing to the big screen soon.
Meanwhile, DC has just started with the second phase, his movies have a good quality, but they are just a few:
- THE DARK KNIGHT TRILOGY
- THE MAN OF STEEL
- GREEN LANTERN
- Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice
But the movies that DC has confirmed for the next years are quite promising:
- Suicide Squad
- Wonder Woman
- Justice League Part One
- The Flash
- Justice League Part Two
- Green Lantern
Live action Tv series:
Actually, the comics enterprises are comic back since this year to Tv. But in this field, i think Dc is a step more than Marvel, it has already conquered the Tv world and it would stay a long time in the top. And i am not mentioning the animated series because it would take too long. I'm not sure if there are phases on Tv, but if they are, Dc is going to the second and Marvel is just in the first.
- Arrow (Will Oliver come back?)
- The flash
And they have a lot more in production that is what i will consider the phase 2:
- Young justice
- Global frequency
- We just have agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
And the things upcoming just seem like a start...
- Agent Carter
- A.K.A Jessica Jones
Martin Goodman founded the company later known as Marvel Comics under the name Timely Publications in 1939. Goodman, a pulp magazine publisher who had started with a Western pulp in 1933, was expanding into the emerging—and by then already highly popular—new medium of comic books. Launching his new line from his existing company's offices at 330 West 42nd Street, New York City, he officially held the titles of editor, managing editor, and business manager, with Abraham Goodman officially listed as publisher. Timely's first publication, Marvel Comics #1 (cover dated Oct. 1939), included the first appearance of Carl Burgos' android superhero the Human Torch, and the first appearances of Bill Everett's anti-hero Namor the Sub-Mariner, among other features. The issue was a great success, with it and a second printing the following month selling, combined, nearly 900,000 copies. While its contents came from an outside packager, Funnies, Inc. The first modern comic books under the Marvel Comics brand were the science-fiction anthology Journey into Mystery #69 and the teen-humor title Patsy Walker #95 (both cover dated June 1961), which each displayed an "MC" box on its cover. Then, in the wake of DC Comics' success in reviving superheroes in the late 1950s and early 1960s, particularly with the Flash, Green Lantern, and other members of the team the Justice League of America, Marvel followed suit.
Their artists and writers more know are Stan Lee, Jack Kirby, Frank Miller and Walter Simonson.
Marvel has at least 134 main characters. Marvel counts among its characters such well-known properties as Spider-Man, Wolverine, Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Captain America, the Silver Surfer, Daredevil, and Ghost Rider, such teams as the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and X-Men, and antagonists such as the Green Goblin, Doctor Octopus, Kingpin, Magneto, Doctor Doom, Loki, Thanos, and the Red Skull. Most of Marvel's fictional characters operate in a single reality known as the Marvel Universe, with locations that mirror real-life cities. Characters such as Spider-Man, the Fantastic Four, the Avengers, Daredevil, and Dr. Strange are based in New York City, where as the X-Men have historically been based in Salem Center, New York, and the Hulk's stories often have been set in the American Southwest.
Entrepreneur Major Malcolm Wheeler-Nicholson's National Allied Publicationsdebuted with the tabloid-sized New Fun: The Big Comic Magazine #1 with a cover date of February 1935. The company's second title, New Comics #1 (Dec. 1935), appeared in a size close to what would become comic books' standard during the period fans and historians call the Golden Age of Comic Books, with slightly larger dimensions than today's. That title evolved into Adventure Comics, which continued through issue #503 in 1983, becoming one of the longest-running comic-book series. In 2009 DC revived Adventure Comics with its original numbering. Wheeler-Nicholson's third and final title, Detective Comics, advertised with a cover illustration dated December 1936, eventually premiered three months late with a March 1937 cover date. The themed anthology series would become a sensation with the introduction of Batman in issue #27 (May 1939). By then, however, Wheeler-Nicholson had gone. In 1937, in debt to printing-plant owner and magazine distributor Harry Donenfeld — who also published pulp magazines and operated as a principal in the magazine distributorship Independent News — Wheeler-Nicholson had to take Donenfeld on as a partner in order to publish Detective Comics #1. Detective Comics, Inc. was formed, with Wheeler-Nicholson and Jack S. Liebowitz, Donenfeld's accountant, listed as owners. Major Wheeler-Nicholson remained for a year, but cash-flow problems continued, and he was forced out. Shortly afterward, Detective Comics Inc. purchased the remains of National Allied, also known as Nicholson Publishing, at a bankruptcy auction. Detective Comics Inc. soon launched a fourth title, Action Comics, the premiere of which introduced Superman. Action Comics #1 (June 1938), the first comic book to feature the new character archetype — soon known as "superheroes" — proved a sales hit. The company quickly introduced such other popular characters as the Sandman and Batman.
The artists and writers that are most know are: Alan Moore, Frank Miller, Grant Morrison, Neil Gaiman.
DC Comics is one of the largest and most successful companies operating in American comic books, and produces material featuring many well-known characters, including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, the Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, Captain Marvel, and Green Arrow.
