Now that Guardians of the Galaxy is one of Marvel’s most successful movies, DC and Warner Bros. must be anxious for their own superhero success.
Legion of Superheroes could be the comic they look to develop into a film. For Marvel’s Avengers, there is DC’s Justice League. And for a lesser known title like Guardians of the Galaxy once was, a space-based team like Legion of Superheroes might be an ideal competitor.
What DC forgets is that they can’t just chase Marvel. Marvel did something awesome and original with Guardians. If DC wants to play catch up, they’ll have to aim for more than copycat success.
Let’s see what the next few years will bring us as DC tries to take the crown from Marvel in the film world. Will they manage to do it? Or will they just stay afloat and piggyback off of the superhero movie trend.
