Few months back, before Wonder Women slayed literally every other superhero, the answer would have been Marvel. But now the vague answer would be—only time would tell.
The war fest between Marvel vs. DC is too old to even remember. After every release, these two universes have taken over each other on every length. And their biggest yet releases, that are Avengers: Infinity War and Justice League (both coming in two parts), vouch big thing for fans across the world. Each has put their best rosters on the frontline—the crowd of superheroes is unfathomable – that can get even the non-fans excited.
Which of these two franchises will come on the top—it’s really very difficult to conclude. The past Avengers movies have been mega success, while Dawn of Justice redefined disappointment. However, the trailer of Justice League has managed to hit all the chords perfectly, matching the hype of upcoming Avenger movie, where we’ll finally see the much awaited entry of Thanos.
