You can probably list the amount of advantages DC have over their age-old enemy Marvel in Hollywood on the back of a postcard.
The five year head start and meticulous planning the MCU enjoyed at the beginning has led to a situation where they essentially dictate the direction of travel of the biggest genre in film-making, with the DCEU lagging behind. This has forced the DCEU to make creative changes just to be contrarian - Marvel has their TV and Film universes crossover, so DC does not; Marvel has leaned into the light and colourful side of comic books, so DC has gone grim and gritty; and Marvel built up for a while to their first big team up movie, whereas DC put it out second.
So as I alluded to above, DC are on the ropes. But one of the advantages they do have is that, unlike Marvel, DC and Warner Bros have all of their toys to play with. Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman weren’t sold off to different companies, so a Fox/X-Men situation can’t happen.
DC have accelerated the process of debuting their big name characters, with Justice League set to introduce basically all the heavy hitters outside of Green Lantern, but there are still more than enough characters left on the subs bench for when the JL stars need a breather.
With that in mind, here are 9 DC characters yet to make an appearance on the big screen (or little screen, for that matter).
In the first Pitch Intense project, Mike and Darren give their pitches for the ideal sequel to Spider-Man: Homecoming, in a battle of Kraven Vs Mysterio! Be sure to tell us who won via comments, Facebook or Twitter!
In the time it takes to read this sentence, someone has discovered 3 more characters in the background of Guardians of the Galaxy. It seems that, although they are lacking a sizeable chunk of their comic character cast thanks to the absence of the X-Men and Fantastic Four, Marvel have thrown absolutely everybody they have into a movie or TV show at this point.
You’d be forgiven in thinking that the well is dry - from now on, we’ll be seeing nothing but sequels and spin offs as the MCU enters its second decade of existence next year. But thankfully, Marvel still have some bullets in the chamber, should they feel the need to add a new movie headliner.
So I’ve compiled a list of 9 superheroes who haven’t seen the light of day yet in the MCU. This list was a lot harder than it would have been even two years ago, but the majority of the people mentioned are strong contenders to show up at some point, either as supporting faces or as the stars of their own movie/TV show.
It’s fair to say I’m excited for Ready Player One. I hijacked our recent Dunkirk podcast for a minute at the mere mention of Mark Rylance, so giddy was I after the trailer we saw at Comic Con. But my rampant enthusiasm has been met with shrugs thus far, and for a while I couldn’t figure out why. To me, it was genuinely one of the best trailers I’ve ever seen. A perfect blend of teasing, pacing and song choice. But everyone else seemingly just saw another CGI fest, notable only for being directed by God amongst insects Steven Spielberg. Why weren’t people seeing this as the triumph I was?
Then it dawned on me - I was ahead of the game. For once, I’m “the book guy”. Sorry to shatter any illusions you had about me, but unless it’s Harry Potter, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, or literally any wrestling autobiography ever written, I have not read it. But having heard this movie was coming, and that the Lord himself was coming down from Mount Olympus to direct it, I felt the need to check the book out. And I’ll get into my feelings towards it soon, but safe to say, from the second I put it down, I was at maximum hypage.
Let me get you where I am.
