DC has had a lot of success.

One of the things us Vinglers mentioned really liking about the tv series DC has been putting out lately is the crossover episodes. Which makes sense, those episodes rock! It is a bit odd that Marvel, despite insisting that all of their cinematic media takes place in the same universe, hasn't really done the same thing.

Netflix has started it.

Using Rosario Dawson's character in both Daredevil and Jessica Jones. And we know they're building up to an eventual convergence of all the Netflix series. But that's a long way away!

Then again...

The Hydra reveal in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. was a little bit awkward. Were we supposed to watch Captain America: Winter Soldier first? Or the episode? Because one automatically spoiled the other. Is this something that DC is just better at right now? What do you think Marvel can do to catch up?

Much as i love that Marvel movies and tv shows take place in the same universe, I think that one of the reasons that DC seems to be doing better with crossovers may be because the tv shows are completely separate from the movies. With Marvel, the shows kind of play a supporting role to the movies, where DC shows are able to shine on their own without being overshadowed
@OtakuDemon10 that's a good point! It does kind of feel like the Marvel shows are a little alienating for the people who haven't seen the movies since they're so dependent on them. Agent Carter is kind of confusing without having seen Captain America, and Agents of Shield makes a bunch of references to the movies as well. What do you think @Bakuman247 @BabyCakes00 @PrinceCampbell @CandaceJordan @DarthRevan @KarleyFrance @BeannachtOraibh @JustinMims21 @MoisEsGaray @GinTenma @TerrellHenry @Thatperson512 @SydneyHogg @Lizzeh @SparkRIDE @BiblioLady @TravisCobbs @SeintoSeiya @mckinleyceair @kneelb4zod @Raadhiyah @DonovanMoore @BrittnieJackson yay or nay?
Marvel doing great in the movies category even tho I watch and enjoy Agents of Shield and the Netflix series DC TV shows just absolutely ROCK! Arrow, The Flash, Supergirl and even when Constantine was on they are all awesome they crossover episodes are great as well too I Love the Flash most of all with all he possibilities that the have made with confirming the multiverse and in the first season with the smart mention of The Flash disappearance in or death in Crisis on Infinite Earths make things even more awesome
@Thatperson512 ooooh I would love to see a Daredevil/Spidey crossover. Though I think I'd be more excited about a Daredevil/Black Widow crossover. They had some pretty cool arcs in the comics and I'd love to see them in action on screen.
@SparkRIDE IT IS SO GOOD PLEASE REPORT BACK ONCE YOU'VE SEEN IT BECAUSE I WANT TO TALK ABOUT IT WITH EVERYONE
