Well, how many people aware of the term MCU and DCU or MCU vs DCEU (or DCU). How silly question I’m asking! Almost every one of the new generation guys and some cinema geeks too for whom age factor doesn’t matter will definitely familiar with the above term, which I’m gonna talk about. So let’s start the discussion without any further delay and suspense.
What is MCU?
MCU is the short form of the Marvel Cinematic Universe which is an American based franchise focused to boom the entertainment industry with their cinema, web series and comic books as well.
The first film of the MCU released in the year 2008 which was Iron Man, the character was played by Robert Downey Jr. He nailed it in that character and own it. And when I watched the film the first time I had fallen in love with the Iron Man and the addiction continues.
Then the next movie released was The Avengers in 2012. This was the first film based on the team apart from individuals character. This movie broke the Box office record and became the top grosser in its time and even today it’s in one of the few films to join the billion dollars club list.
This is the film which I see whenever it does on the roll. There are also several popular Marvel movies like Thor series, Captain America Series and many more.
The latest and the recently released MCU was Black Panther which broke all of the American film industry records and joined the elite panel of America’s blockbuster.
What is DCEU (or DCU)?
DCEU stands for the DC Extended Universe also termed as DCU. Actually, it’s an unofficial abbreviation. It’s also an American based franchise which is known for its comic books under the name Detective Comics based on the fantasy well-known characters like Batman, Superman etc.
But in the year 2013, it released its first movie named Man of Steel based on the Superman character. Superman character is all time favorite of almost all, Isn’t it? The next film was Batman vs Superman: Dawn of Justice which released in 2016, which was a quite good movie. And one of my favorite movie.
The recently released DCEU movie was Justice League in 2017. The movie was based on the team like The Avengers but it couldn’t create magic as MCU did. But still it was a good movie and I personally enjoyed.
But what I liked about DCU was it released it’s first woman-centric movie in which they represent woman as a superwoman character named Wonder Woman released in the same year (2017) before the Justice League.
The character in the Wonder Woman played by Gal Gadot, a gorgeous Israeli actress, has also seen in a couple of Fast and Furious movie series, and she portrayed it the best she could do. And it is one of my favorite lists too.
It’s fact that MCU’s movies do way better box office collection than DCU’s. Whatever the reason is but still I love the MCU and DCU both equally. And I have watched and have enjoyed every single movie of both universes equally.
By the way, let me tell you the upcoming movies from both the universe.
Aquaman is the upcoming DCEU movie releasing this year (2018) and MCU’s Avengers: Infinity War the most anticipated movie ever on the planet has released on 27th April 2018 in India. So go and watch and fasten your seatbelts to hold your excitement and thrill and enjoy with your family, partner or friends.
Now the ball is in your court, you must tell me in the comment section that which film and which cinematic universe you like the most and why?
