In a interview on Kevin Smith's podcast, Fat Man on Batman, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer Christopher Markus heavily criticized the DCEU.
"I mean, I would look at what Marvel did out of necessity, in that they didn’t have their A-list characters," Markus said. "They didn’t have Spider-Man. They didn’t have the X-Men. They went down a line and found a, I mean, he’s pretty fucking famous, he’s Iron Man, but he wasn’t there, and they made a really good movie out of it...I might put Batman and Superman and everybody else, I mean Wonder Woman is doing fine, aside for a second. Go through the vast world and go, 'That guy' or 'That girl,' and go, 'Let’s just make a really good movie and not a universe and see what happens.' There’s a lot of spaghetti being thrown at the wall." Ouch.
He isn't the first one to come for the DC Universe's latest films. Earlier this year, Screen Junkies' Honest Trailers bashed Justice League by roasting the extreme use of CGI including Henry Cavill's upper lip which was crafted to digitally remove his mustache during reshoots.
Speaking of reshoots, Avengers: Infinity War co-writer, Stephen McFeely, who appeared on the podcast with Markus, gave some insight on the current state of Avengers 4.
"Status of Avengers 4 is that we shot it, but it’s not due for a while," he said. "There’s time for reshoots and fixing and we’re just scrubbing through it now. The Russo brothers have been in there for a few weeks now after the press tour and all that. And the whole team is getting together tomorrow."
It'll still be awhile before Marvel fans get to see the film since it's slated to be released next year. In the meantime, Ant-Man and the Wasp will be released on July 6 while DC's next film, Aquaman, will arrive in theaters on Dec. 21.
