Not that it matters. Marvel started going to shit a decade ago, while DC is turning into the joggerverse.

But the MCU has generated billions of profit. Can they still do that once capeshit has become tantamount with Mein Kampf?

The cancel culture now wants to target capeshit.
Blade, the 1998 Wesley Snipes superhero movie, launched the superhero movie boom we’re still in today
That whole article is a load of bullshit, but that particular part is especially heinous; an R-rated film about vampires that brought in only $131 million at the box office did not start the modern superhero boom. That's pure historical revisionism, and anyone who is even remotely familiar with Blade knows that it's a very different animal from the superhero movies that currently dominate the box office. Also, it's worth mentioning that Blade was one of the many 1990s superhero movies that were greenlit because of the massive success of Tim Burton's Batman. Blade was in no way a trendsetter, and the superhero movies that really solidified a lot of the trends that are still relevant today are Bryan Singer's X-Men and Sam Raimi's Spider-Man.

I'd say Spiderman and Batman Begins are the most responsible for the boom. I doubt most people who saw Blade even knew it was a comic.

Yeah, Batman Begins is another one from the 2000s that helped solidify some of the trends that are still around.

But, you see, Blade had a black protagonist. That makes it more important.

I'd also say the first two X-Men movies also helped popularize these types of movies. Also the Arrowverse for that whole "Nobody wears an authentic costume, and everyone is too embarassed to use actual capeshit names" bit.

Of course it is. It's the same Time magazine that made Greta Thunderpants person of the year.

And that's a good thing.

Ain't cryin' in my beer over it. I'm sick of capeshit, and I can't wait to hear the cognitive dissonance from ol' NaziBob.

They're just pissy that Blade is better than every MCU movie. It is responsible for bullet time, though. (Or the GAP ads?)
