Q. Why are Marvel movies making more money than DC movies?

A. "The source material."

I think one of the issues is that Marvel’s had consistent leadership for the last 15 years or more, whereas DC hasn’t. There have been all of these changes in terms of who is running DC. That is fundamentally very hard. It’s hard to make any headway when leadership is changing. One of the other things that’s made Marvel incredibly successful is all of their adaptations are true to the source material. Ant-Man feels like Ant-Man. The Hulk feels like the Hulk. They don’t try to change things up. I would say, try to hew closer to what was the original intent. So, it’s having a consistent universe, having consistent leadership and staying true to the source material."

...it's questionable whether we can blame the delta variant. These two movies, which received lackluster CinemaScores of C+ and B-, are opening roughly right in line with their estimates. If both of these movies were A CinemaScore titles and completely missed their projections, then it would be quite feasible to squarely blame the delta variant.

The article contains a question about why Hasbro and Paramount went in this direction to try an exploit a "spin-off" featuring Snake Eyes when they've not properly paid attention to the main G.I. Joe line for so many years.

Superman and his Jewishness

Its core thesis — that the world’s first superhero was as Jewish as Tevye — goes beyond shallow notations. Sure, The Big Blue Boy Scout’s creators were named Siegel and Shuster. And you don’t need a degree from Hebrew University to recognize that Jor-El placing his son in a space capsule rhymes with Moses’s trip down the Nile. But Schwartz’s close reading of the material goes much further and exposes a tidal wave of signifiers. Moreover, his writing tightly laces his theories with Jewish history and texts.
