Chris Hemsworth Says There Is No DC/Marvel Rivalry: Marvel Already Won
Coke vs. Pepsi, Sean Connery vs. Daniel Craig, Spy vs. Spy. These are only a few topics that are hotly debated online. While the various camps for each side can be passionate about their choices, no rivalry comes anywhere close to Marvel vs. DC and how viciously each side defends their company of choice. Those conversations are usually held in comic book stores and internet chatrooms, but Chris Hemsworth recently weighed in on the age old question while promoting his new movie Rush. You can pretty well guess which side he said he was on, but he topped it with a punch worthy of the god of thunder himself.
In a recent interview with YouTube‘s Jake Hamilton (via ComicBook.Com), Chris Hemsworth gave his thoughts on the classic rivalry. The actor didn’t need Mjolnir to smash the competition when he said:
We’re just winning aren’t we? That’s not really a rivalry. I think it’s only when people mention it that we even think about it.
Hamilton went on to point out that The Dark Knight Rises was beaten at the box office in the summer of 2012 by The Avengers. It was then that Hemsworth got a little more diplomatic with his answer:
Did we? Good. Look you can’t not be excited about your film being part of something that does that well, but it all kind of benefits each other. If one film opens big, then most likely people want to come back to the movies and see something else. So it all feeds into each other.
You can hear the above quotes in the first minute of the video. So there you go, Chris Hemsworth has ended the Marvel vs. DC question once and for all. Yeah, I don’t believe that either. A bit of healthy competition is always a good thing, and with Batman vs. Superman coming up and the DC cinematic universe expanding, Marvel will have even more opportunities to face off with their distinguished competition at the box office. What do you think about Hemsworth‘s comments?
