Marvel Studios has been on a roll for a long time now. Compared to them, the DC Comics movies are pale and drab. Even the Ant Man movie made money, amazingly enough.

It’s tough, because DC is trying really hard to make their own thing powerful and unique, and stand apart from Marvel, who has the first mover advantage with the expanded universe.
They are certainly on a roll, and I agree, Ant Man by all rights shouldn’t have been as interesting as it was. I’m certainly curious to see how a post-Thanos Avengers story looks.
