For the last week entertainment news circles have been dominated largely by the DCEU's Wonder Woman, and rightfully so. By all accounts it is a wonderful film, earning accolades on both the social and entertainment fronts. Fans on both sides of the comic book aisle are glad to see DC hit a home run on the big screen.
But did we really expect Marvel to let DC own the spotlight for very long? Is it any surprise that today, just a week after Wonder Woman took the world by storm, Marvel dropped this on us?
It may be a monetarily motivated competition between the two companies but it doesn't have to be for us. There is enough room in our hearts for great flicks with inspiring characters from both Marvel and DC. Keep 'em comin'.
