Oh yes, it’s a DC vs Marvel day today. Earlier in the week, DC and Warner Bros. debuted The Flash to a select crowd at CinemaCon. Days later, Disney and Marvel countered that with their premiere (alongside an IMAX NYC press screening yours truly attended) for Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3. The Awards Radar Community Question for this weekend really does write itself. Which film are you more excited to see?
On the one hand, The Flash is a team-up movie, and they’re always more exciting to audiences. Plus, out of CinemaCon, the first reviews were very strong. There’s also a major curiosity factor about this one, for both positive and negative reasons. So, it’s in the zeitgeist, which always adds more eyeballs to a picture. The DCEU is turning based on what’s happening here, which should lead to major interest among fans. So, if you’re among them, feel free to say so.
On the other hand, the Guardians of the Galaxy franchise is the most consistently praised within the Marvel Cinematic Universe. I wrote about just that, among other things, in my rave review of the film. Check that out here, but if you’re into the MCU, this is obviously a must-see. Plus, I can vouch for it being really good, which hopefully counts for a little something. If you’re in this crowd, don’t be afraid to let us know!
The choice now is yours. Are you more pumped to see The Flash or Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 3? Whichever side you’re on, don’t be shy to say so. By the way, if you’re equally excited for both, that’s cool too, just tell us that. We eagerly await your responses…
