The First Summer the DC Was Clearly Ahead of Marvel Since the Batman Trilogy

As readers of this blog know, competition is a good thing.  The Sokol family (the older girls are currently at the wonderful Camp Ramah Darom and we are down to only one girl in the house) has seen a number of movies this summer:

Batman Lego Movie

Wonder Woman

Guardians of the Galaxy 2


While Guardians of the Galaxy 2 had its moments (Baby Groot was very cute), the movie was simply above average.  The Batman Lego Movie and Wonder Woman were both really good and we highly recommend them.  The video game Injustice 2 (and I wonder why Injustice or Injustice 2 were not the basis for the plot of the upcoming Justice League movie) also seems to have had a good story line, although I do not play video games.  Finally, the Arrowverse on TV is loved by my two older girls, particularly Supergirl, Flash and Legends of Tomorrow.  Has DC really moved ahead long term?
