DC will not "handcuff their creators" to continuity.

Diane Nelson (DC Entertainment president) commented on the difference between Marvel's cinematic universe and their own: Unlike Marvel, DC will not require their writers and directors to work within a tightly woven framework of interconnected films. Asking their creators to "work with the same storyline or force them to hold back characters or introduce certain characters" wouldn't work with what they're trying to accomplish. "Ultimately, it hinders the ability for someone like [showrunner] Bruno Heller to come in and create Gotham.” (Via).
I don't think anyone would go as far to say that Marvel has made a mistake. After all, they're making millions of dollars and don't show any signs of slowing down. But lots of fans have voiced their concerns about the focus on connecting each film to the last (and the tv series, and the upcoming ones), stating that the stories are beginning to suffer. Could DC be on to something?
Copying isn't a bad thing, well as long as you make things better. I personally think DC should copy Marvel (just a little bit). There's something really wrong with Snyder's Superman; I mean how can someone give hope when he's mad, less colorful, and dark? Hope is supposed to be colorful, happy, smiling, bright, short everything Snyder's superman isn't. It feels they're making a batman version of Superman, dark and pissed. Superman should be like...Thor, bright, colorful, and kind of funny.
@shannonl5 I think Cap is more like Batman,...serving justice, doesn't want to kill, leader of an epic team. Although batman is way smarter and a lone wolf kind of dude (which's badass btw). and yeah I watched the trailer of Supergirl, it feels like they'll do exactly what they did with the flash.
as long as they try to remain true to the comics, I don't care if their cinematic universe is as aligned as Marvel's. I don't think it would work to try and imagine Gotham as the backdrop for the new Batman. Though I would like to see Stephen Amell get to play Green Arrow on the silver screen.
Marvels making millions of money, they are rushing to make money & their movies are not classy as DC's..
