Now, while the long-running rivalry between Marvel and DC has often been heated, it's rarely been anything less than friendly between the executives and creatives involved. After all, writers and artists have routinely moved back and forth between the 'big two,' and actors and directors have frequently crossed the aisle to work on adaptations of both company's work.
For many fans, though, such a genteel and pragmatic stance has long been discarded in favor of a bitter and vocal disdain for the other side, with the choice between Marvel and DC having ended friendships, caused minor international crises* and provoked more Internet trolling than the average presidential debate.
*Note, this part may not be true.
And, from the sounds of it...
'Gotham' Star David 'Bruce Wayne' Mazouz Is A Seriously Devoted DC Fan
So much so, in fact, that when asked who would win in a fight between the Justice League and The Avengers (at the recent Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice premiere, no less), Mazouz's response was... emphatic:
"I'm sorry, we are at a DC Comics thing here. The Avengers are out. Justice League. I mean, come on. Martian Manhunter, Aquaman. I can't. I can't... Justice League."
"Because their powers are so much greater. I mean, who do the Avengers have? A guy in some iron suit, that's not even iron. It's actually bread. Then there is a big green guy. Calm on. We have Aquaman. We have Wonder Woman. We have The Flash. There's no way. Justice League's headquarter are in space. The Avengers headquarters are like somewhere in Iron Man's city. Like, who cares. It wouldn't be close."
Which... is pretty much exactly what you would expect a teenage Batman to say, when you think about it...
What do you think?
Who do you think would win in a fight between the Justice League and The Avengers?
