When it comes down to DC vs. Marvel films, Marvel will always make more money/ be more successful with it's films. It comes down to two very separate styles, and two very different corporate entities behind the films.   
   
DC is going for a more serious approach, dramas with a plot, some action, and a need to be taken seriously by adults. They are past an age of "campy" films like Batman Forever. They see comic books as more than cartoons, but as serious writing, with dark storylines and meaning behind character's existence.   
   
Marvel on the other hand is going for a more light-hearted approach.  The plots to their movies may be weak, but they make up for it with star power, lots of injected humor, and fun action. They see comic books as colorful and sometimes laughable cartoons with memorable characters.   
   
All that being said, Marvel has the Disney juggernaut backing it, so it will always be able to afford more advertising/ get more appeal out to it's intended audience. In addition, although I am a die hard Batman fan, I think Avengers took the right approach. I believe more people like to laugh than to cry, so to speak. A lighthearted film will always be more appealing than a drama when it comes to comic book movies anyhow   
   
Just my two cents

Eh, I get what your saying. But the thing about the Batman trilo for example (and at the very least MoS was a decent origin story even if you didn't like it (personally I enjoyed it plenty) is that it will LAST longer then the Marvel movies. 50 years from now The Dark Knight will probably still be a classic while no one remembers Avengers 1 when Avengers 15 has come out.

I agree 100 percent. It's a shame that Snyder felt the need to shove a huge fight scene at the end to make up for a supposed lack of action in the rest of the movie. It's like the first half of the movie was aimed for a mature audience and the other half was aimed at a lighthearted crowd and it didn't work well
