Will Superman Or Captain America Win The Big-Screen Battle?
DC and Marvel may need their less popular characters to hold the spotlight if they want their films to stand out against the competition.By Ryan Biek | March 9, 2016
This year's grudge match between Marvel and DC may all come down to characters who've (so far) been the studios' weakest links: Captain America or Superman.
Two of the comic franchises' movies this year are conspicuously similar. DC's "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice" and Marvel's "Captain America: Civil War" feature some of their most popular heroes fighting not only villains, but each other.
Both films pit an everyman hero with powers against a wealthier one who uses technology.
