DC Fans Claim That 'Avengers: Endgame' Copied 'Batman V Superman'

The age-old question among comic book fans, be it casual movie watchers or die-hard fans, is which franchise is better: DC or Marvel. The debate has been never-ending, and it has continued with the release of Avengers: Endgame.

In fact, DC fans are calling out the film, saying that it basically copied Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

It seems that Marvel fans and DC fans won’t ever get along, and this newest trend on Twitter is making the divide even clearer.

DC fans are convinced that the Russos took a leaf out of Synder’s book, choosing to direct Endgame in the same way that Synder directed Batman v Superman.

Let's debunk that right now.


Avengers: Endgame is probably the darkest that the MCU has ever gone. Naturally, the movie would have to reflect that.

It still retains the humor that the MCU is known for, but it definitely tells a much more serious story. As a result, the direction has to reflect the writing.

In defense of DC, they do make good movies.

Seriously, they do. Even if you aren't a huge fan of every single plot or storyline, the movies are well made.

Maybe not all the time, but even FOX's Marvel films and the MCU have some misses.

This new war all started with a tweet.

For a while, all was good in the world of Twitter, until one fan pointed out the similarities between the two films. Not long after, the tweets started piling in to either support it or fight against it.

While some shots and scenes may have similar colors and tones, it doesn’t actually prove anything.

Naturally, other accounts had to follow the leader.

Unfortunately, when someone starts a Twitter war, everyone gets involved.

Fandoms are no different. In fact, the Twitter timeline is often the victim to fandom fights.

People are really reading too much into it.

Every person who is creative is inspired by something else, that much is a given.

But seriously...this is a stretch, even for Twitter. Can't we all just appreciate good films?

Some MCU accounts decided to kick back.

Obviously, MCU fans wouldn't take this lying down. But in war, there's no time for calm responses.

They hit back in full force with their tweets, using DC's own gifs against them.

Luckily, we still have some people on Twitter who are staying calm.

Sadly, all this fighting does is make the dividing line between the two fandoms even clearer.

Constantly pitting two universes against each other, when they’re so very different, doesn’t get anywhere. But at least it makes for hilarious Twitter wars. Thankfully, there are some fans that appreciate both franchises.

What do you think about the recent divide?
